This is the UH-1D Robert Mason, author of 'Chickenhawk"' flew during his tour of Vietnam in 1965-1966.

That sparks a memory or two. I have jumped out of those things, four men to a side. LOL. Nice work, Thanks.

Thanks guys. Great book. My first flight of any kind was in a Huey late in 1980 after I joined the NG.

pretty cool model, the interior in particular.  Compared to later attack copters it looks vulnerable and "under-weaponed".  I wish the model companies could come out with better clear plastic for the kits, but I suppose to them the added cost would only drive prices higher.  I thought with the small models, 1/43 they sometimes use a really thin "vacuuformed" clear plastic that would serve all models better, plus it's more flexible.
