Announced on Werner's Wings Facebook page -

"Werner's Wings is pleased to officially announce that Kitty Hawk will release a 1/35th scale UH-1D/H. The first issue will be a Vietnam era version. Future releases will include post-Vietnam and foreign Hueys.

Ray Wilhite and myself have been instrumental in the development of the CAD artwork.

What you see here is an early version CAD. Changes have been made. We are almost there."




They are expected to be ready in the winter/spring of '17. I am really looking forward to these as Kitty Hawk's 1/48 UH-1Y and AH-1Z are awesome kits. These should be too.

This looks very promising

When Floyd Werner is in for this project I think this UH-1 will be absoulutely accurate.

I am already dreaming of an early 80īs Luftwaffe UH-1 D in LTG 61 markings... but this is just my humble dream...

Regards,

Sebastian

Soooo many companies making kits of subjects we've really been missing!
