Nice.  Looks like Italeri does a pretty good 1/72 Huey...do they have the Vietnam Gunship version???

Hello!

They even have two of them: UH-1B and UH-1C. In the UH-1C you'd probably want to replace the rotor, though, as it isn't the correct "wide blade" 540 type.

Have a nice day

Looks like it is coming along nicely.  One note though.  In the configuration you have it; with the blade antenna and the pitot on the roof, it is an H model, not a D.  Also, if you still have the "Danger" arrow for the tail, you can use some PVA (white school) glue to affix it with.  The PVA dries clear and will not affect the decal.  Keep up the good work.

thanks for the info, the ''D'' comes with the discription of the model from the maker but will change once the model is finish and presents in a different thread.
