Hey Guys ,

I think that I may have tackled the one thing I have been worrying about since I have started this project.

The main rotor hub.

I know that the resin that I use would not be strong enough to hold the blades up . So I have been working on a skeleton that would.

I have no skills at all soldering so I have used an epoxy to hold the parts together . FAILER.

Then I used thick super glue with the blades inserted . It held for about 6 months until I dropped something on the hub by accident. FAILER .

Then I saw this and watched the video .

Resistance Soldering Unit

So I paid the $130 and had it shipped. I used it Saturday and what a complete success.

Insert releasing doves here !!!

I will do my best to try another photo carrier and post some pics.

Once again , Photo bucket must die !!!

Thanks Digler,

I will look into that .

This is a call out to all of you Russian experts.

I am trying to get my order of paint in for the full builds .

So I need to know the exact paint colors that I will need.

I know Ammo of Mig has the cockpit colors kit and I will be using that.

They also have modern helo paint colors but I am not sure what modern helos they go to.

I need a color call out for Model Masters enamel and if not Tamiya Arylic

1. Afganny War Dark brown on tan over sky blue
2. Cold War Green on tan over sky blue
3. Modern Green on light gray over sky blue.

I need help on this ASAP so I can get my order in.

Model Masters paint may be discontinued in the near future .

Lots of Hind pictures.

It looks like MM 1701 (Military brown) is recommended for the Afghan war scheme. I'm not familiar with Afghan Livery so I don't know how close the two are and which would be closest to the *actual* color.

Since I rely on Model Master Acryl for my customs this concerned me greatly...I did some googling and seems it is only the enamel line - some 133 colors mostly the military ones that are going away. Sorry for model builders - but happy I don't have to switch paints...I have not been happy with any other brand really...

I had to remake this piece . In actuality it was a fence to protect the radio gear behind the pilots seat. It was put there on the Static display Hind.

When I made it I was unhappy but figured will is almost out of sight .



Well I remade it and here is the new radio panel.



Here is the real thing.



All of the large molds are made. I split all of the parts and took all of the med. to large parts and sent all of the tiny parts to Daremo . But unfortunately I have not heard from him in 2 weeks. I hope he is well and is making parts or molds.

I will start production of the big parts this weekend.

The new resin that I am using takes 4 hours to cure so I will finish the conformal fuel tanks this weekend as well as start remolding the 222 and making the 223 parts. I will be busy this weekend. :shock:[/quote]

OK all of the big molds are made .

I finally got hold of Daremo and he is back in the sadle .

There is a slight issue with the main fuselage and or turtle deck .

They are off by about 1/18th of an inch in width off.

I am not sure if it is the main fuse of turtle deck.

Doug ( Daremo) will be sending me a copy of the canopy frame to see what the issue is.

Once I find out what the problem and I will fix it before the parts go out

Everything else seems to be working out fine .

I will be using Trumpeter's directions modified to suit this build.

I have had online directions on other builds but because of Photobucket they are in limbo .

Better to have them in hand for a build anyway.

Dare I say that the kits will ship this month ?

Looks sold! Good job!

Are you going to number these anywhere? Would be kind of cool to have it numbered since you only made 40. Like behind a little flap or something.

Except when trying to find something .


Here is the rear rotor skeleton . Just enough to keep the blades from snapping. Probably would not need it if handled correctly . But just in case
I also started doing this for my Huey rotor copies . Those had a tendency to warp and after placing a wire in the mold that tendency stopped .



Here is the heavy brass skel for the main rotor.
