What is Vietnam wargaming without the iconic helicopters the US forces were using there. After painting up some Marines and NVA, VC figures I thought it would be time to build some choppers. The Marines used the UH-1C and the Sikorsky H34 during the first years of the conflict . I start with the UH-1C.
As I got two 3d printers a resin and a filament printer I tried to print a Huey on both of them and wanted to find out which printer would do the better job.
Here are pictures of the filament printed Huey:
As you can see you can see the printing lines quite clearly. I didn’t like that very much and they would have shown after painting even more. So I printed one in resin:
I like that one much more. So I will work with the resin printed ones. I started printing a second one and built a flight stand out of an old car antenna:
The chopper will be attached with a magnet.
