Beautifully executed, I was thinking the door gunners would benefit with the addition of bungee cords to their M60s. But really nice work on an old kit.

I agree and am planning on doing that but want to make some ammo boxes and ammo belts first. Stay tuned

Awesome work Doug. It's nice to see the old kit get some love. I have one still sealed in my stash and hope to build it someday. Your figures are very very nice. Might have to consider them. To bad, Monogram/Revell didn't produce different variations of the Huey in this scale. It would have been cool to see Delta/Hotel/November.

Oh well, great build all around
