Thanks. That really helps.

This[^] is a review of what you get when you buy this model 'ready to use'. Just note the almost complete lack of details and many inaccuracies that are only there to make that thing cheaper. The landing skids, for example, belong to a totally different model and don't look like those of a Huey at all. Or look at the nose and the front windows! Side windows were not included at all.

This kit from Revell[^] did not help at all. It's really supposed to be the same helicopter, down to the serial number. While they got the paint scheme right, judging by that single original photo that I found, the kit itself can't decide if it's a UH-1B or a UH-1C and mixes features from both, while passing itself off as a UH-1E. About the underside of a UH-1E obviously less is known than about the dark side of the moon. The kit simply has no details there whatsoever, not even the large 'hell hole' for the cargo hook that all Hueys have.

So I started researching and modifying that boring detailless thing. This is a picture I posted here some time last year, when the underside was still mostly unknown territory but the rest was slowly taking shape:
Prototypes for the weapons[^]
Weapons mounted[^]

And now the underside is also done at last, after finding a detailed plan from some other modeller who claims to actually have seen the underside of a UH1-E.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
