HELP !!!! I NEED HELP !!!!!!!

Stuart just sent me 2 excellent pics of the Hind . Looking at them I discovered a MAJOR FLAW in the Trumpeter kit . In the real Hind the intake cowlings are shaved in the middle and are touching. The Trumpeters are totally separate . This just messes everything up . Looks like it is redo time. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Damn you Trumpeter or You Stuart ???? :?

Unless this is a later model . There is a secondary lip on the cowling that is really pronounced ( mine does not have it ) and I see in some pics it looks just like what I have.

Anybody in the know about this design feature because I really do not want to redo it if it is not needed !!!!!!!!

I think these are different variants and your fine. The Hind is 45+ years old and there been a ton of variants.

I understand how you feel Pick. But at the end of the day, you have produced the most detailed 1/18th Hind in history. Don't worry bout the separation.

Nobody on earth is making this, its a work of ART, and it looks perfect to me, I don't think a redo is necessary, the picture you have is a modern version, they slimmed the design for weight and aerodynamics. Don't change it !

Well , I changed it . I am not quite done with it.

I spliced the two collar rings together and fan cut the cowling so they can crimp together adjusting to the inward move.

I have the first application of putty on it and will probably have to sand and repeat at least a couple of times .

This just slows everything down .

Progress is not moving forward but sideways .

OK Guys ,

This is it . I have 29 sets sold and one more to hit 30 .

So the count down starts today and will run till next Monday.

The presale is at $300 and $700 for a full build now , plus shipping .

After next Monday the Price will be $400 and full builds will be $800 .

$100 locks you into a kit $200 locks you into a full build at the presale price.

The count down starts now.

ASAP

I have enlisted Daremo to come in on this project.

His casting abilities are excellent and he will be casting the smaller pieces.

This will cut the work load in half .

Well I fixed the intake issue . I just need to tweak the crease between the nacels right at the rings and it is fixed .



I also cut down the filters. Jay copied the filter just as Trumpeter had it.
They made it more like a light bulb.
It needed to be more like a mushroom.
Cut down version is on the left.


This is my old vacuum plate.
The vent allowed too much air and was about 6x6 usable and was heated by a waffle maker .




Here is my new and improved vacuum machine.
Powered by a pizza baker .
After 3-4 mins worth of warm up it will heat the plastic in 1-1/2 mins !!!!!!!!



I also got some new vacuum plastic and it works great !!
I fabbed the wiper blades and front probe.
CAREFUL.... YOU CAN POKE YOUR EYE OUT.





I am not 100% certain but I am dangerously close for the final mockup.
I need to look things over tomorrow and if everything checks out I will be posting final staging pics .
Then it is time to break her down and the mold making process will begin.

!!!! WARNING !!!

MONDAY IS APPROACHING QUICKLY GUYS.
