Military Mahogany is proud to offer this UH-1Y Huey wooden model helicopter to our series of beautiful hand crafted models. We went to great lengths to insure this model was made as accurately as possible and think we can pretty darn close. We challenge you to find a better more detailed model than this...NO ONE comes close.

The UH-1Y variant modernizes the UH-1 design. Its most noticeable upgrade, as compared to previous variants, is a four-bladed, all-composite rotor system designed to withstand ballistics up to 23 mm. A 21-inch (530 mm) insert just forward of the main door has been installed for more capacity. The UH-1Y has upgraded engines and transmission, 170% increased payload over UH-1N, almost 50% greater range and maximum speed, a digital cockpit with flat panel multifunctional displays, and an 84% parts commonality with the AH-1Z.

On 8 August 2008, the Marine Corps certified the UH-1Y as operationally capable and was deployed for the first time in January 2009 as part of the aviation combat element of the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit. The Marine Corps plans to eventually buy 123 of the Y-model Hueys to replace their inventory of N-models, with delivery of all aircraft to be complete by 2016.

The only operator of the UH-1Y is the United States Marine Corps.

This is not some cheap wood toy, each model takes an average of 18 hrs to complete and is coated with 3 coats of polyurethane for a super high gloss finish. You will not find a better more detailed model than this.
