Zac - HPG is one I used to go flying in when I was younger with Joe Keeley. In fact I was staying at his house in Acacia Bay, Taupo with him and Rosie Westerman up until the Thursday and they were killed on the weekend. I have over 120 still left to do for the poster so will post each new one here as its done.
I quite liked the Joe Keeley's machine ZK-HPG , immortalized in Rex Forresters book 'The Chopper boys'. The earlier version of his 500 had the 'V' of the NZ Forestry service modified to show a two fingered salute. Great artist work. Please don't start on art work of Bell 206 in N.Z . We'll never hear the end of it from Zac!

Wow great stuff that image of the red and black Mt Hutt 500 made me do a double take! Did a number of flights in her as a passenger for some work I did in the 90's, sadly lost in an accident. I remember she had a side ways aerofoil shaped pod which stuck out one side for taking injured patients out of the mountains.
Such fond memories of a magnificent machine the Hughes 500!
Poor quality, copy of a slide.
