1:48 Crew UH-1 Huey

AL4048

 

Introduction

When the review sample was handed to me I quickly watch it and thought a small vignette with a 1:48 Huey on a Vietnam Base on busy afternoon.

This set from Plusmodel is, to say the least, a very simple and nice one.

What’s on the box?

 

The clear plastic box, shows what you get. Three resin parts. One single-piece Vietnam era UH-1 crew and one crewman with separate right arm holding a cigarette.

Despite no painting guide is supplied, the label’s back is printed with a large full color draw of the figures.

The uniform is a typical Vietnam era depicting an Airman crew from 1st cavalry division (airmobile).

#aircrew 1

 

This figure is present as one piece resin part. The casting quality is excellent. That means that minimum clean up is required, as the resin block is attach to the figure soles of their boots.

The pose is from my humble point of view, natural, as from my eyes it could portrait a relieved aircrew after a hard day’s work on the front.

The aircrew is presented with a bandana tied around his head, flak jackets, and armed with side arm and knife (don’t mess with him!)

#aircrew 2

This figure is presented with the right arm separated from the body. As so you have the two remaining parts of this set.

This crewman is presented on a relax position (as the first aircrew) wearing a hat on his head and holding a cigar on his right hand, on a posture stating something like “ I’m glad this shift is over!”

Conclusion

 

This is a nice a simple set from plusmodel with no imperfections or flash on the figures, only requiring some caution removing the casting blocks, having a wash with warm water and detergent for removing any grease component from the moulding process.

 It will perfectly blend on a 1:48 Diorama co-starring a UH-1 or any other heli (OH-6 Cayuse?) operating on SEA on the same time.

 

Highly recommended!
