Hi Roy,

That'll be a nice big bird!

I am not an expert on copters but I recently built a Vietnam Cobra and researched the paint. I used FS 34087 for a faded OD. Some Hueys were glossier. Good article here:

Looking forward to your build Roy, are you making any improvements to the kit? You should be able to add plenty of detail at that scale.

The only AM I know for it is the Werner's Wings crew.



They were sculpted by our own Doug Cohen. He did an awesome build of the Monogram UH-1B here. There are lots of great tips and techniques in his build.

Good luck with yours.

Yes, the common decals and stenciling should be on your gunship.

For adding pics, they must first be hosted somewhere on the web either here at Armorama or at another site like PhotoBucket, Flicker, etc.

This post tells you how to put them into your threads.
