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

Here's another look at Chester Fesmire's 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. Also shown in Photo Gallery 220.
