Looks like a Vietnam era Huey -

It would be nice to see a VN vintage AH-1G Cobra at some point.

A big disappointment! I'm not opposed to 1/48th-but this one cries out for 1/35th! I'm still hoping for a 35th CH-53 eventually! From what I heard it came very close to happening some years back.

on the scale. So for now they will be doing a 1/48th scale kit of the Vietnam era UH-1D/H. Hopefully we'll see the larger one with good sales of this one.

One can only hope a 1/48 UH-1B or C is in the pipeline.

Bo would be pleased.

I just passed on 3 different 1/35 MRC/Academy Hueys at the Keller swap meet yesterday because I thought a new tool kit was coming. Maybe they got cold feet because somebody else is coming out with one? Tamiya? One can dream.

Glen from Kitty Hawk has posted on ARC that the 1/35th version of the UH-1D will be coming along with new 1/35 Cobras. Here is a link to the thread on the relevant page. You may want to browse the whole thread to get the full story.

Also, Floyd was one of the consultants on the design of the kit so we know that the info Kitty Hawk got is good.

Even though I am a 1/48th builder even I am interested after building the Revell kit so long ago. I also know that helicopters are a hard sell for some reason and I applaud Kitty Hawk for venturing down this alley. They already have several helicopters in their 1/48th line up and I have most of them.

Although having said that it does seem that Italeri ignores that and keeps issuing them both in 1/72nd and 1/48.

Cheers
Chris
