Hello Gino!

Thanks a lot! I've been looking for those a really long time! Now I know what's supposed to be there!

By the way - like I wrote - most scale models of the Huey (all that I have seen) - don't have this important detail.

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day!

Looking down the hell hole onto the ground.  Parts hanging down the middle is the cargo hook.

 

 UH-1C hell hole from below, also showing the underside you were looking for.

Looking up inside toward the tail.

Oh yeah, Gino - lots of work, lots of knowledge and very useful, too!

So how about that hell hole? I mean the large circular opening in the belly of that chopper?

Thanks a lot and have a nice day

If you rearrange it and identify the helicopter model and user country, it is more useful.

US Army Vietnam-era UH-1D/Hs.

 

German Army 1970s UH-1D w/grey cockpit and interior.

German Army 1980s -'90s UH-1D w/wire strike kit and NVG-compatible (blacked-out) cockpit.

US Army 1980's UH-1H painted to look like Vietnam-era UH-1H.  The indicators of a later UH-1H include an NVG-compatible black cockpit, wire strike kit (wire cutters above and below the nose and wire guards around wiper arms), APR-139 blisters on nose, and modern digital instruments added to the IP.

 

US Army 1980's - '90s UH-1H.  Blacked-out cockpit and cabin metal pieces, wire strike kit, APR-139 blisters on nose, whip FM antenna on roof.

Australian Army 1990s UH-1H.  Of note the extended headrests on pilots' seats, handrails on the cabin roof, blacked-out cockpit, and yellow outlined emergency exit windows.

Armored pilot seats.        

Intercom control boxes, usually located in the side recesses in the cabin ceiling, facing in from the sides.

Cabin light control box.  Usually located in the center recessed ceiling opening, facing the rear.

Noted..... Thank you sir.... Just thought it a good place to dump images as so many people build these birds... But yes I can see where some of the images could lead to confusion..... I'll edit the original text in the first post....

Be cautioned!! Some of the pictures you have shown are foreign, esp. West German, Hueys, which are very different.  The black/green camo, glossy dark green one, and the three-tone camo ones are not US Army Hueys.  They have a bunch of features that US Hueys did not have.  For example, the red pilot seats with extended head rests are totally different from any US Huey.  Also, foreign Hueys had a bunch of different antennas and the German ones have different vent setups for the intakes around the turbines as well.  You really have to know what you are looking at to make sure you are building it correctly.

Hello!

Those photos are very nice, and also hard to find elsewhere on the net - so thanks a lot for sharing. What I would like to see in addition would be a shot of the underside - which I'd say is wrong in every scale model of the Huey - and the insides of the so-called hell-hole, I always woder what's in there and how to show it in a model.

Thanks again and have a nice day

Oh just an FYI... ( I have contacted Joseph at Fireball) Fireballs decals are fantastic... But I noticed in my research on 117th " Annie Fannies"  that tail markings and tail rotor paint instructions are off ... In this picture the tail markings are 2 red diamonds - 2 white diamonds and the tail rotor is red & white stripes...

 

EDIT: Fireball just got back to me.... The instructions and decals on their set are for post 70 Insignia....

HUEY IMAGE DUMP.... (reference photos of UH1)
Posted by BEDLAM on Sunday, May 08, 2016 11:52 AM

I'm hoping this will be useful for Huey builders of all scales.... these are a few images I have collected during my research over the last few months.... Mainly Uh 1d/h... Please feel free to add your reference photos..... I think this will save a lot of going backwards and forwards on the internet for builders.... ( photo credits to Grubbyfingers and Grapeman for some not all images)

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME OF THESE ARE NOT VIETNAM ERA BIRDS.... SOME ARE LATER OR EUROPE CONFIGURATIONS.... ALL IMAGES ARE FOR ROUGH REFFERENCE ONLY...
