"I was very disappointed with this model."
cvanzant86
This model requires a lot of extra effort to make it look decent. First off, the instructions call for building the helicopter essentially from the top down causing the propeller blades to be constructed in one of the first steps. This means there is nothing to support the model while it is being constructed and you have to contend with helicopter blades perpetually getting in the way while working on it. I wish this was constructed from the bottom up and I would advise attaching the landing skids as soon as possible. I would also recommend attaching the tail rotor last as it will certainly break during construction. Helicopter modes, and Revel models in particular, are notorious for having parts that's do not fit together flush. This one is no exception. Most pieces of the cockpit are VERY difficult to assemble due to poor fitting. This requires a great deal of sanding and contour putty to correct. Additionally, the many clear plastic windows complicate the matter as they cannot be painted, sanded, or contoured over. Originally, I painted this model Olive Drab but was very disappointed. It looked cartoonish and unprofessional. While constructing this model I became very frustrated with it and decided to use it to practice some airbrushing techniques rather than finish it. In doing so I found that painting it Dark Green instead of Olive Drab made it look a lot better so I decided to salvage the model. I cleaned the windows as much as I could but they are still cloudy. If you really want a Huey Hog, as I did, to add to your collection, be prepared to put a lot more work into this than you might think. Use dark green rather olive drab, and I would recommend leaving the side doors open so you get a better view of the inside. Also, you might want to skip around the steps in the instructions in order to prevent breakage during construction and to make the model more stable.

"Huey Hog"
skippykeesler (Wood River Ill)
Although a rather dated offering from Revell, this model does build up into a nice representation of the UH-1B/C Huey Gunship wich serve so well in the early days of the Vietnam war prior to the arrival of the AH-1 cobra. The decal sheet offers a interesting subject. My kit had only minor flash,maybe from an earlier production run. But none the less the modle goes toghether quite nicely and offers a nice weapons load.All in all still a nice model which should not be difficult to build for any modeler.And you can not beat the price. Recommended.

 
"GREAT VIETNAM CHOPPER MODEL"
fredfredburger
This was my first 1:48 scale helicopter. It was not hard, but still offered a challenge. The rotors were very fragile and needed patience for painting & gluing. The landing gear or the feet of the a/c were also fragile and had to be glued on right. The interior is nice and there are many details to do such as painting pilot and co-pilot, machine guns, ammo, grenade launcher...Do take your time, I learned that helicopters are harder than WWII monoplanes. The fuselage of the body was a little mismatched and had to be sanded down and adjusted to get it straight, and the interior cockpit didn't fit 100% into the body. Overall nice package, next on my list is apache and hind

 
"Nice kit overall"
jeremy.s.michels1
For the age of this kit, it is pretty nice. Some of the pieces were warped and there was plenty of flash to clean up, but that is to be expected. The instructions were easy to follow and after lots of clean up the parts went together pretty well. Some of the pieces are pretty fragile. I would recommend this kit to anyone, as it can be a nice easy build, but it is also pretty cheap allowing modelers to practice new techniques without breaking the bank.
