    Excellent build, as always! If all those models in the last photo are the same scale then a Huey is a pretty large helicopter! I look forward to your next project.

    Simply marverlous FLU! You've done it again! It was really interesting seeing a chopper thread - I've never seen one built. Thanks!

    What makes this build so marvelous to me is my own familiarity with the Huey. Your modeling and photography skills combined create magic. To rephrase something said earlier, you could do a completely understandable build thread with just pictures. Halinski - hire this guy, quick!!

    You outdid yourself on this one FLU. What on earth do you have planned next?

    Most respectfully,

    Elliott

    You are a true modeller; par excellence. You do not shrink from problems: you solve them and move on. You are a true master of mixed media. You do not shrink from challenges. You get'er done as we say in Canada.

    Write a book, sez I !!

    If you ever want to do some bird or fish carving, look me up!

    Sincerely
    Jim

    I have this model on my wish to build list, but I'm not sure if I dare to even try after seeing what you have done!

    ....so much praise..........

    Hi friends,

    such a lot of kind words........I´m surprised.

    But, thank´s a lot to all of you !!

    Yes, the overall impression of the Huey is great, it looks realy good. I made a weathering with watercolors with green and brown, so the Huey looks like often used .............O.K. that´s it so far.

    Now I think about my next model :-D :roll:

    best regards FLU
