Thanks Dan :) maybe I'll have some questions about exterior details :) I'll ask when start to build the fuselage :)

 

Now continue with control panels and the dashboard, because this in the kit is far far from truth :)

Hi Chavdar,

Very good work on the Jet Ranger.
Actually, the kit depicts the very first production version from the Sixties, hence the small instrument panel, streamlined skids, etc.
I started the kit 9 years ago, but it is on the SOD now, because the Revell colour scheme version demands 4 bulged side windows.
An I still have to make plunge moulde for them...
Anyway, I made a simple nose correction in my thread here om LSP. Maybe it helps you:

Keep up the good work!

Cheers,

Peter

Hi Peter :) yep you've done a great re-work at your bell 206 and I'll try to repeat your how-to at the nose :)

Thanks my friend :)

In fact your build is one of the reasons to starting mine ;)

Cheers Peter :)

Don't think I've seen one of these build before, an as I have one in the stash, will be taking notes. Nice start!


Exactly.

Here's another example of an aircraft that is literally everywhere and so common we don't even notice them much, and we have no decent kit of it.

Thanks friends :) give my best :)

Tim,  for the middle trim I've used 4 mm pvc sheet and cut up to shape of the front screen :)

And the pilot part of interior is almost done:

Pilot's cockpit section detailing is just plan fantastic. What a huge difference it makes.

Love it, Chavdar. The scratch work really adds a lot, I like it. Are you going to try to modify the nose?

Absolutely LOVE this build!

 

Thank you for the updates on your skills and workmanship.

 

Are you going to fix the shape of the nose/windscreen?

 

Thanks again, you are very talented

 

Cheers

Anthony
