Nice job. Is the back scratch built or pieced from something else?

All the mods to the original Blackhawk are scratch built.

Thanks! That sounds like a big project. I'll paint the larger markings and get some decals printed for the smaller ones.

I still have a ton of putty and sanding work to do. Then scribe in panel detail and a bunch of rivets. I sprayed some primer on it to see all the problem areas. With the primer its starting to look the part. I'm really happy with how the back dated exhaust turned out.

To the un trained eye it is hard to see what was done . I noticed the door , interior ( of course ) and angle of the rear rotor.

Is it possible to see a before and after to appreciate what you have done ?

What I do see and notice you have done a great job.
