Monogram released this model in 1966. This is their Huey Armed Chopper version, a UH-1B with four M60 7.62 mm machine guns. It has fair exterior detail, little interior detail, and thick chunky parts. The profile looks pretty accurate. Clear parts are good. Fit is fair.

Here's a nice site with ideas about how to build an accurate version: NOTE: 1 August 2012: the link I originally posted now just directed me to some blocked German version of Scale Rotors. TAFFY3's quote below contains the 'bad' URL. Here's the article I referenced with a new URL.http://www.scale-rotors.com/kit/artikel.php?id=2509

Two completely different kits altogether. The "Huey Hog" in the link above is/was a newer kit and a lot more accurate than the first one. Al
