1/35 UH-1D Helicopter "Huey" w/ Four Crewmen ~ Nam Series
An enduring icon of the Vietnam War is the UH-1 Iroquois helicopter, commonly referred to as the “Huey” by troops. This utility helicopter, one of the world’s most recognizable designs, was widely used in Vietnam. In fact, around 7000 were deployed there (out of a total of 16,000 manufactured). Despite being a rugged design, approximately 2500 were lost to combat and accidents in Vietnam, and 2202 pilots were killed.

In an exciting development, Dragon has produced its first a “Nam” Huey in 1/35 scale! The larger scale allows enormous amounts of detail to be packed into this model of a UH-1D, an upgraded, stretched fuselage version introduced in 1963. The form and shape of the UH-1D has been accurately captured, and the detail is stunning. This model builds into a most impressive centerpiece, and could be added to an atmospheric Vietnam diorama. As a special bonus, the kit also includes a set of four crewmen. The crew includes two door gunners and two pilots, so the model can easily be shown in action during a combat mission.
