I have been working on the HobbyBoss easy built Huey for a while and decided to finish it. here it is so far, simple but pretty good overall and it is the only 1/48 scale short body Huey with scribed panel lines.




the pilots are converted from the Monogram Huey, still the best figures in my mind.

crew also converted from Monogram Huey figures, one is wearing the cold weather suit to jump in and perform rescues. also I have made a rescue sled to hang on the back wall along with the medical apparatus in the center of the cabin.




I am going to paint it in the markings of the Aussi Navy

Looking good so far. The figures are looking great, as usual.

a little more paint on the Huey, the blue looks darker than it really is.

Coming along nicely. Good job w/the white. I know white is a b!t@h to get on nicely with no bleeds or smudges.

I was browsing this post, looking at the images, not really reading the words or who was posting what, but then while I was admiring the work on the figures, I knew I recognized the style and sure enough it was Doug. So you've got a very recognizable style there Doug, in case you didn't know already...
Very nice btw.

regards.

X2 on what Willard said. Your painting style reminds me a lot of Shepard Paine's work Doug. Really beautiful tonal modeling sir!
