"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.

"the hog is a pain"
woofdogmeow
Well this is an old kit and it shows. MY problems started with the fuselage halves they were very badly warped especially in the tail boom. I needed to use clothes pins to hold it together while the glue set. The instructions told me to put the pilots in the wrong seats 1 pilot has his hands on the stick the other is reaching for the control panel if you put them in wrong the pilot will try to reach out the closed door window. The other major hassle is the nose it is seperate from the fuselage and will not fit well without a lot of trying to make it fit. The interior of the copter doesn't set well either. All the exterior slots for the landing skids and the gun mounts are too large for the parts and will not look good afterward until filled with puddy. the weapons go on easy once the gun mounts are set in place. The 40mm on the nose will swivel up and down and goes on well. The other annoyance was the windows especially the cockpit roof ones don't fit well at all. In the end I did tame this beast but it required a lot of paint and puddy to cover all the defects. once done it does look good at a distance.

 
"I was very disappointed with this model."

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.

It has been quite a while since I built my Huey model, but I remember that it was not hard to build. To my memory, the directions only had seven steps. Overall it was another very good Revell model kit. For making a Vietnam War helicopter at a cheap price, this kit is the way to go. Note: the plastic is molded in a brown/olive color.
