In mid-1964, prior to the massive buildup of US forces in Viet Nam, a small U.S. Army Bell Huey helicopter company was hurriedly organized to respond to a critical support need in the Mekong Delta region of South Viet Nam. The unit was activated and required to be in Viet Nam within 34 days! Personal affairs had to be arranged. Families were disrupted. Many of the members were young, between 19 and 22 years of age. The unit call sign was “Outlaw” and the nearest village was named Vinh Long.

The Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter, better known as the 'Huey', first started arriving in Vietnam in 1962. It was used in a variety of roles including Medevac and as a troop/material transport. The UH-1 “Huey” was also used for air assault and could be equipped with guns, grenade launchers and rockets. Introduced in 1959, over 16,000 Huey helicopters were built in different variants.

Air Force 1 Model Company is a leading manufacturer of high-quality, pre-built, diecast model airplanes. Every model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. They are built using precision-made diecast metal and plastic components.

This model of a UH-1 Huey helicopter features:

  • Die-cast metal body
  • Realistic panel lines
  • Detailed cockpit
  • Historically accurate printed markings
  • Turning rotor blades
  • Metal display stand


  • Category: Military Helicopter Models
