Thank you very much for the splendid build of this bird! A very good friend of mine was a SAR crewman in Fallon in these last Huey holdouts while I was stationed there. He would later go 'Blue to Green' and become a Kiowa pilot. Sadly, he would be one of those to fall in Iraq in 2004.

Thank you Calvin!

It was a pleasure to pay tribute to these unsung Heros. I'll admit to having at least one sleepless night trying to decide if the tone should be more clean. Finally, with knowing how hard these professionals worked decided to give the aircraft's look as hard working.
