A bit of a surprise announcement from Kitty Hawk has a Huey inbound for the LZ.
Kitty Hawk has announced they will have a UH-1D Huey on the way. The kit will be 1/48 scale, and based on the box art, looks to be Vietnam era.

No other details at this time, but stay tuned to AeroScale for more information as it becomes available.

FINALLY!....a Huey in 1:48 with the M23 weapons system only. More CADS here....looks like it could be a winner. LINK Cheers, Joe

This is really good news and I anticipate that it will be a superb kit. Floyd Werner helped with the research and CAD-work. It was going to be 1/35th but on the news post on Cybermodeler I read that Kitty Hawk said they'd read too many forum posts where people said they preferred a 1/48th scale kit. Meanwhile there's a 12-page thread full of high anticipation on the forthcoming Kitty Hawk 1/35th Huey. LINK Those guys were really drooling for a really good, new large-scale Huey... They are going to be soooooo disappointed. I am too but, you know, having three or four top-quality 1/48th Huey kits (and the space to display them) will probably help me get over it. Grtz, Marc

There is talk this will jump to 32-scale eventually....

As Marc said above, it was originally planned in 1/35 (not 1/32), but Kitty Hawk changed their minds and it will now be in 1/48. They are going to focus on 1/48 helos for now. Hopefully they will eventually revisit 1/35 scale. By the way, why isn't this posted in the Rotary Wing forum???

Gino, my bad. I will be more observant in the future. Sorry.

Good news for the 48th builder, as I will not be getting this one. I bought my last 48th Kitty Hawk...the UH-1Y Venom. It's a great kit but I was hoping for 35th as mentioned in the earlier announcements.
