"Better Than Any B-Huey from 40 Years Ago"
I was using a Monogram B-Huey to make a Navy trainer, and not loving the results, when I took note of the recently released Hobby Boss UH-1C. Close to 40 years newer than any 1/48 little Huey model, it's substantially nicer. Big surprise. The HB Huey-C's best feature--I'm viewing this kit as ready to make a Huey- A, -B, -C, -F or TH-1L--is its windshield casting, that comprises the overhead lights and the pilot door windows, correcting a vexing arrangement in the side windows of the old Monogram model. Other pluses in this 30-part kit: a) the price; b) the main rotor, molded in one piece; c) one-piece landing rail casting; d) apparently superb fit. Minuses, correctable if you cannibalize a Monogram Huey (cheap and plentiful), are lack of collectives and rudder pedals, and the molded-closed cabin doors. You could use the Monogram crew figures, too, as they're fairly nice. And you could weaponize the Huey. As kitted, the HB Huey is a slick in either Army or Marine livery.

"Great kit"
For the price, this kit is in great shape. Didn’t have any issues.

"Good little kit"
Simple construction, lacks a bit of detail, mainly armament which is near impossible to come by. Will be in my stash until I can discover an available set to make the Sharks version more accurate

"Huey C Model -- A Must Have for Your Helicopter Collection"
JRB (Burleson, Texas)
I thoroughly enjoyed this simple kit. I was so happy to get a C Model Huey. They were not as good or as powerful as some of the later Ds but they were tough birds. This model is good for any skill builder. Though I think older guys who know Hueys will enjoy it more. The only recommendation I can give is to weight the front end to keep it level on the shelf. It is definitely worth the time and money. Reminds me of a time we really dont want to remember but have to so as not to repeat it. Hueys, what else needs said. See my photos.
