UH-1H Macedonian Air Force (FYROM)

Here is my latest kit finished just minutes ago.  The old italeri IH-1D converted into a UH-1H.  The model represents a Macedonian AF Huey during the war back in 2001.

I made new armored seats, seatbelts and a new detailed instrument panel and the middle consoles with instruments and switches.  Too bad that can't be seen trough the windows.  I made scratchbuilt wire cutters and several other details on the kit.  

The decals came from the Balkan models decal set featuring ex Yugoslav UH-1 family of helicopters.  The paints used are Revell and Tamiya and I barely managed to mix the right color.  The weathering is done by airbrush and enamel diluted grey paint.  

I hope you like my model .  :-)
