    Product Description
    The Bell 206B-1 Kiowa was derived from the OH-58A, which in turn had been the product of a re-worked design that was originally rejected. Launched onto the civil market as the JetRanger, it proved to be so popular that military interest was re-kindled and the US Army and Navy purchased large numbers. Australia was looking to replace its Sioux helicopters with a more modern and capable machine. However, the US Congress did not approve the sale and Australia entered into a private contract with Bell, giving rise to the 206B-1 Kiowa.

    This Red Roo Models book covers the development, history and service use of the Bell 206B-1 Kiowa. Australian operation of the OH-58A Kiowa in Vietnam is covered, as well as a background brief history of Australian Army aviation. The Kiowa's structure is probed in depth and the major colour schemes, including experimental schemes, applied to the Kiowa by the Australian Defence Forces are explored in detail. A list of paints and authentic paint chips are included. Over 150 photographs, some not previously published, are included, with four pages of colour photographs. Specially commissioned artwork profiles the Kiowa's colours and a complete fleet list rounds out the topic. Australian Army pilots discuss what it's like to fly the Kiowa. This 140 page book explores the quiet hero of the battlefield and will satisfy modellers and enthusiasts alike.
