Bell 206B-1 Kiowa A17-017

The Australian Army Kiowas are licence-built Bell 206B airframes constructed by Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation and designated 206B-1. They differ from military OH-58 airframes in detail, including a lack of any weapons capability. The CAC built 206B-1 Kiowas are unique in having a double hinged rear port cabin door and a removable door pillar, allowing the loading and carrying of stretcher-bound casualties. In 1971 56 Kiowas were ordered for the Australian defence forces. The first twelve were manufactured in the USA and then re-assembled in Australia with the balance being of Australian construction. Although in common use, the name “Kiowa” does not appear in any official Australian documentation for the aircraft. A17-017 is shown here as it appeared in 2009 at Brisbane airport. It carries the standard wrap-around 3-colour camouflage scheme.

The Prints

Grubby Fingers profile prints are detailed, accurate, high quality and long lasting. The attention to detail in the illustrations and the quality of the print materials mean you will have an image of aviation history to enjoy for years to come. They make outstanding and appreciated aviation gifts for enthusiasts and pilots. Grubby Fingers aircraft prints are printed in-house at Grubby Fingers. Each print is checked for quality.

The Artwork

Each Grubby Fingers profile is meticulously researched. Many reference images are collected and, where feasible, I study an actual prototype. I talk to aviation historians, manufacturers, operators and relevant organisations. All gathered information is compiled and compared against written references to verify details. Many hours of work are done before I draw the first line and I check each part of the drawing against reference photos as I progress.

The illustrations are high resolution and very detailed. Each illustration is a result of hours of painstaking research and attention to detail.
