UH-1 Huey History:
The Bell UH-1 Iroquois (nicknamed “Huey”) is a utility military helicopter powered by a single turboshaft engine, with two-bladed main and tail rotors. The first member of the prolific Huey family, it was developed by Bell Helicopter to meet a 1952 US Army requirement for a medical evacuation and utility helicopter, and first flew in 1956. The UH-1 was the first turbine-powered helicopter produced for the United States military, and more than 16,000 have been built since 1960.
The Iroquois was originally designated HU-1, hence the Huey nickname, which has remained in common use, despite the official redesignation to UH-1 in 1962. The UH-1 first saw service in combat operations during the Vietnam War, with around 7,000 helicopters deployed. The Bell 204 and 205 are Iroquois versions developed for the civil market.
The Warbricks Team’s Dad has flown in UH-1 Huey Block II or Super Huey and its his favorite helicopter to fly around with the door open on.

It’s a good set, but a little more fragile than the previous version. It does however make up for that as it looks a lot better.

I love the look of this set. Really happy with the finished product. I will say it is a bit fragile but that should not keep you from buying.

Every Cobi set I’ve had has been great and this one is no different.
I got the executive gunship edition and it has pretty high fidelity detailing for a brick-built model. It scales fairly well with the mini-figures and is a great display set!
I say display because certain parts of the set are fragile and fall off easily during play/manipulation. These parts are mostly the side mounted weapons racks and the antenna pieces above the cockpit. They are easy to reattach, but as a play-set they are definitely a vulnerability.
It’s a decently large and heavy model. I worry about the post it attaches to on the display stand because the weight of the model does flex this post when the whole thing is moved about. So far no issues though.
It took me about 5 hours to build the set, but I was taking my time and enjoying the process.
P.s. I will add that War Bricks reached out to me before shipping my purchase to let me know that they had received the model from the manufacturer with damage to its box. They refunded me $10 for the inconvenience. I got the box with some small hole in one corner, but all the parts bags and pieces were accounted for. This is a fantastic distributor, and I’ll def be ordering from them again!

Set is pretty solid. I would definitely like to see dual molded parts with clear windows similar to Lego in the future though. As for the Warbricks end excellent packing and the box was not beat to hell when it got here!!
