"By itself" could have many definitions and specifications.

Are we talking Structure and Skin ONLY;
Structure, Skin, Tail Rotor Drive Components;
Structure, Skin, Aft Wire Harness and Electrical Components (Light, etc.);
or other combinations and mutations.

I'm reminded of the movie PHENOMENON....

Oh, I almost forgot the Access Covers and Panels and their attaching hardware - Installed or Removed, Bob?

Like mentioned, what do you mean “by itself”?
Vertical Fin and Horizontal stabilizers?
Gearboxes?
T/R Driveshaft?
Control tubes?
Wiring?
Etc........

Look in the -10
It should be in there.
Might not break it down as far as you need it, but will give you a starting point.

I haven’t hardly looked at the UH-1H -10 since flight school.

Just curious... Is that a USGI Standard "Two Guys" or South Vietnamese Standard ... They are like comparing apples to apricots.

Just saying... The typical American GI draftee in VN was a 19 year old, 120-pound kid with minimal body fat and typically pretty durable.

But the TWO GUY standard really doesn't define the tail boom weight (whose actual description is still pretty blurry).
