Huey HAR.2
« on: May 20, 2019, 06:30:14 pm »
So the UK buys the Bell 205 instead of the Sikorsky S-55 then S-58. An early short body UH-1F might have looked like this in RAF SAR markings.

Italeri AB-205 with Hasegawa UH-1H main rotor.  Decals from all over the place, and colours Vallejo. 1/72 of course!

That is clever, splendid and just looks right.  I like how you chose the T58 version so that the Brits could swap-in a Gnome.

Bonus points if you could get it into service with an official name of Lynx, just to mess with the JMNs...

Nice.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
