"Great value kit, highly recommend"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The UH-1 is the classic helicopter and I'll recommend this to anyone who wants to get into scale models, as well as any experienced hobbyist who's looking to expand their shelf or experiment with paint schemes or attachments. The UH-1 is a versatile aircraft platform and the kit can be assembled with or without the armaments and in a variety of military and civilian paint schemes, making it a fantastic choice for anyone looking for a general helicopter model.

Pros: Good quality molds, low excess and nice detail, quick and easy to assemble without being ‘basic’, very affordable. Variety of attachments. Instructions easy to follow, plastic is an olive color which gives a nice look after just 1 thin coat. Cons: Recommended to have some modelling putty and a file as some of the joins need a bit of adjusting and leave some small gaps (nothing major, but still visible). Instruction manual is black and white, so the colour indicators take a little longer to interpret. Sits fine, but benefits from some additional weight at the front.

Considering the price, 10/10.

Italeri: 1/72 UH-1B Huey – Model Kit

This helicopter, designed by Bell at the end of the fifties, rose to notoriety through its use in Vietnam. It is by far the most used heli the world has seen. The Huey was extensively used in support and attack sorties. Thanks to its reliability and robust construction, the UH-1 was quickly acquired by the armed forces of many countries (including Italy, Japan, Sweden, and Holland among others). UH-1s remained in service until the end of the seventies and were then substituted for more modern and sophisticated versions. Kit features three decal sets.
