Bell UH-1C in 1/35th Scale

February 19, 2022 · in Aviation · · 6 · 2.6K

This is the version of this iconic helicopter. An easy build with no real problems although a bit fiddley in places. The Rotor head and engine were given a black pin wash whilst the fuselage was weathered solely with pastels. The base is a landscape picture frame with my own design and 3d printed PSP.
