In the US, the Revell Huey Kit may be the most ubiquitous helicopter kit there is. I have yet to walk into a hobby shop that doesn’t carry it! In previous blog entries, we talked about some of the other helicopters in the “Huey” series in the 1/48th scale, including the Monogram Huey “Rescue Chopper” and the Italeri Bell UH-1D “Slick”.
Back to the Revell Huey Kit…
In term of aftermarkets, a number of decals are available. However, one of the most useful option may be Cobra Company’s UH-1C HUEY “Hog” Detail Set, which provides various corrections for the kit including for the tail section (pictured below).
