The Bell UH-1 Iroquois flying range could be extended by fitting extra fuel bladders into the rear cabin well area on each side of the rotor gearbox housing.  I think that these bladders are spare main rubber fuel tank bladders that would normally be fitted to the UH-1.  The tanks normally are held in place by a series of tie down straps that fix the bladder to the rear bulkhead. 

Werner’s Wings provides the choice of three sets of fuel bladders as follows:

  • 35-04 UH-1 LH Side Fuel Bladder Full

  • 35-05 UH-1 LH Side Fuel Bladder ¾ Full

  • 35-06 UH-1 LH and RH Side Fuel Bladder ½ Full

The conversion sets are designed to be used with the Dragon/Panda 1/35 Bell UH-1D/H/N Iroquois Helicopter.  The tanks are moulded in light grey resin and are very crisply moulded and nicely done.  The tie down straps are very crisp in the moulding and stand out prominently and will be easy to paint.  There is a moulding block that needs to be removed by careful sanding.

 

 

The masters for the mouldings were done by Jurgen Dietz and he is to be applauded for the level of detail and the realism achieved.

 

 

No modification of the kit parts is required to install these parts.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Werner's Wings for the review sample
