1/32 UH-1D troop seats?

Does anyone make troop seats for the cabin of the 1/32 Revell UH-1D kit?  

 

I have the current release of the gunship, but I want to build a slick. 

 

Wasn't there a release in the past that had the troop seats?  Anyone have those floating around in their parts bin maybe?

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

if you can find the right release of the kit, that's your best bet. Even then, it's some shady looking stuff. All the aftermarket stuff I've run across is for the 1/35 Panda/Dragon kit or the 1/48 KH kit...

 

Here's how I started tackling it this spring 1/32 UH-1D Huey in-flight scene (20 May: Seats) - Works in Progress - Large Scale Planes

Fairly easy in all honesty. Don't know how I'll tackle the nose issue yet, but will get back to it once I get the Prowler done.

Have you tried to track the Panda / Dragon version down at all? I think its fairly rare now, but you do see it on E-Bay every now and then. I have a feeling it's 1/35th scale, though. 

 

Cheers.

No, I haven't and I'm not really interested in buying another kit.  If I can't find the specific parts for the Revell seats, I'll probaby just try and scratchbuild something that will resemble them and close the doors.

I haven't seen the slick version of that kit in forever.  The parts may be "shady-looking", but if I close the doors it should be OK through the windows.

The eBay listing I referred to does have Revell's version of bench seats. The image of the Revell of Germany kit sprues you linked are more clear though.
