The UH-1 Iroquois "Huey" Helicopter has become synonymous with American's involvement in the Vietnam War, with thousands being used by American and South Vietnamese armed forces for the duration of the conflict. Originally designated as a general purpose utility helicopter, variations served in medivac, troop transport and gunship roles. The most common variant was the UH-1H model, with its elongated body and powerful 1400shp engine. The UH-1H could be configured to carry 15 combat troops, six stretchers, or wide array of rockets and guns.

This model is built for use with LEGO minifigs and includes seats for pilot and co-pilot.

The kit includes 309 new-condition LEGO elements plus printed building instructions and is shipped unassembled.
This kit is designed to be durable enough for reasonably active children's play.
This kit is designed to be modified. Check out the UH-1 Mods Gallery for ideas and hints!
