MRC Helicopter 2014 Global Contest Entry
Italeri 1/48 UH-1D Huey A024
Model by Ramon R. Lomeli, USA
I used the CMK resin engine and interior sets, Cobra Company weapons as well as scratch-built the illumination flares and drum on the right side and the searchlight and minigun rig on the left. I also made custom unit decals to represent an aircraft assigned to A Company, 25th Aviation Battalion (Little Bears) stationed at Cu Chi, Republic of Vietnam, 1969. This model was built for a Vietnam vet who used to be a crew chief assigned to this unit during this time frame.
