A little progress here are the completed pilot and WSO .

The legs have been worked on allowing them to sit in the seat right.

WSO




Here is the pilot . I reworked his arm as well. A little tweaking on his arm join and he will be ready for casting.

Will the pilots come painted? Or only with the $700 version?

The cockpit is done !!!!

The grill behind the pilots seat is a little wanky but you almost will not see it. You get just a glimpse of it looking through the crew cab. I did not want to leave that are and across to the port side open . So I put the protective grid ( in front of the radio ) and the port side tube stiffeners.

I need to tweak out the walls in the crew cab and I am ready to move out to the exterior .[/quote]

This project is 2 YEARS IN THE MAKING !!

I have completed the interior and have started I the final exterior.

I have come up with the final tail securing method.

I have 2 long screws that hold the main fuselage halves together internally and have a single screw pinning the tail to the main fuse.

The tail is a TIGHT fit but I think the 2 main parts should be screwed together for safeties sake.

No need for pics at this time.

Finalization is getting short guys !!!

Getting close guys .

Here is about 2 hours of work laying out the lines. Another 3 hours to finish then about 6 hours to actually scribe the lines.

I hope to have the panel lines done this week .

Dare I say molding will start hopefully next week ?

Once the mold making starts the production price will be in effect.

$375-$425 I will be asking .

So get in while the getting is good.

Yes I do take lay aways . :wink:

Have you ever tried selling your finished designs to mass production companies?

The problem of doing this is the construction . It would have to be built in an injection molded fashion .

So it would have to be totally redone.

Thanks AJ .

Damn..

I know if I put $$$ down for the kit, it'd stay a kit and I'd never get it properly assembled. The finished one seems like the better bet for me.. but where am I going to find $700?

I should have registered for a Hind for my wedding

Good question .

The wings will be removable along with the tail boom.

I will probably take off the landing gear ( I designed them to be screw mounted ) and the top turtle deck is removable .

The main rotor hub will probably have a cotter pin holding it on and the blades are a tube sliding in a tube .

OK sounds good !!

There could be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Scribing and panel raising about 90%

In some cases yes I use thin styrene. In the case of the raised panels on the air intakes . I use 2 layers of tape and used the 2 part Bondo glazing compound to fill in the taped area and after hard come back and lightly sand .

The port side came out great using this method. But the starboard needs a little work.

I also need to raise the parallelogram-ish patch behind the exaust on both sides.

Well shoot.. the dark brown on tan is so iconic.. but the green on gray looks unique (and I guess modern).

Hmmm!

What the heck.. green/gray!
