Description
Model Helicopter – This UH-1 Iroquois, aka the Huey, Model Helicopter is a scale model of the original UH-1D Iroquois helicopter. The UH-1 Huey Model Helicopter is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. The UH-1 Iroquois model helicopter arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand. Model scale is 1/32, with about an 18" span and 15 ¾" length.

The UH-1 Iroquois was manufactured by Bell Helicopter. The Iroquois is a multi-purpose military helicopter famous for its use in the Vietnam War. The original designation of HU-1 (helicopter utility) was developed in 1955 and led to the nickname Huey. The name became so popular that Bell put the Huey name on the anti-torque pedals. The military began using the helicopter in 1959 and over 16,000 were produced. Over 7,000 helicopters were used in Vietnam with approximately 2500 lost in combat or in operational accidents.

This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood aircraft sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.

Shipping weight is calculated at 6 lbs. per model ordered.
