Wokka Wokka Wokka* - UH-1 part 3

The Hueys are now finished, so I took the opportunity offered by a brief burst of summer to photograph them in the Vietnamese jungle which passes for my lawn.
I went for an early sixties look in overall drab with white lettering and a gloss finish.  The glazing was painted in pale blue.  They certainly match my image of Hueys of that era.

* or as some would have us believe "chukka chukka chukka"   But that's just wrong.

Are you planning a Vietnam style version of LCW?

Tim Gow said...

Thanks for your kind words.

If I do so I'll be calling it 'Kinch don't surf...'

I hear the "Ride of the Valkyries" coming through my boxes when I see these pictures! Looks great Tim!

Great work Tim. They will of course need suitable musical accompaniment.

Excellent finish Tim. I like the overall effect, so well done.

Need more?

Quite right too!

Do you have a bottomless box of helicopter kits?

Stephen Beat
Very tuneful. You can see why the Fuhrer liked it so much.

HAHAHA...yes. I could be convinced of my error re. Huey sounds.

They do look fantastic in those pics of course.
