Bell UH-1D "Huey" & H-13 Helicopters - By Chester Fesmire

From Chester Fesmire comes this pair of Bell helicoptors. The larger helicopter is a Bell UH-1D better known as the Huey, from Roco. Chester opened the starboard side door and changed the mount on the minigun, added a metal deck inside and put some seats in also. The smaller helicopter is familiar as the one used in "MASH." It is a Bell H-13 from Corgi Fire Heroes series. Chester changed the top of the lattice boom from a solid one and added a stick, foot pedals and exhaust as well as the entire trap rotor, actuator and rotor blade.
