Bell UH-1D Iroquois

Bell UH-1D Iroquois

This kit is a boyhood model, which was buried under tons of stuff at my parent’s attic floor. It popped to the surface when they decided to do some conversions at that garret. My mother put it aside and presented that Huey to me on one of my rare visits at home. Well, nice memories, but what shall I do now with that bird? Finally I decided to restore it, but where to start? So without a good plan it went on the shelf again for quite a long time. It was after the visit of a model show, when I was rather impressed by all the high-quality dioramas presented there. I was interested in trying a diorama by myself. So what you see here is a mixture of a “first try” diorama and a chopper from a “Rookie” skilled modeller. I choose to crash the helicopter, because I wanted to hide some of those greenhorn mistakes, like silvering of decals, fogging of windscreens, ugly butt joints, etc... It was real fun building that scene and it turned out quite good. I hope you like it too. Enjoy!
