Size as requested by customer


"The Bell 206B-3 Kiowa was the Australian Army's primary Light Observation Helicopter. First operated by the Australian Army Aviation Corps in Vietnam (where they used leased OH-58As from the US Army), the Bell 206B-3 was produced in Australia with high skids and various role equipment. Its primary role was as the eyes of the ground commander in gathering intelligence on the battlefield, calling in artillery missions or close air support and various other utility roles. As a reconnaissance platform, it was replaced by the ARH Tiger and was then relegated to training duties.

"The prints shown at left are examples of different configurations for different units and uses. A customer may order a particular version of a print and request a specific tail number or configuration and may ask for different crests or images to be included.
