I wish I'd been able to capture the colors of the paint and workmanship on this Bell H-13. It looks MUCH better in person than what I've captured of it here.

Here's a Youtube video of a Bell H-13 Helicopter with a bit of a bite! And a Youtube video of Bell 47, the civilian version of the H-13 helicopter lifting off, hovering and taking off. It is a bit jerky but it shows the Sioux off very well.
