Fantastic build so far ! I am always pleased when I see someone building

Helos , especially the uncommon types .

Yes , the wrong shaped nose and the non bulged ( and tinted ) windows are a problem .

But unfortunately also the whole belly , which is (seen from front) V-shaped on the model .

The real thing has a flat underside . I noticed that when I extended my Jet Ranger into a

Long Ranger . But I see you are on a good way man !

Greetings

Stefan

Yes Stefan, you're right for the flat belly :)

There is so much work to do the accurate shape from this kit :)

Small update for today - scratch the "front" lights under the front part of the dash board and correct the rear seats with some tamiya tape:

Also made the dash-board decals:

How did you make those decals?
If I give you a pic of my panel, could you possibly make me a decal of it?

Hi Tim, I made them using CorelDraw X3. If you send me a pic of your panel I'll try to re-draw at vectors, save it for you at

.pdf file and give it back to you and you can print the file over decal paper :)

Oh and of course you must give me the sizes at 1/35-32 scale. No problem my friend.

 

Well Joel we've got only six of this birds painted white and blue and if I had six revel kits I would build all of them :)

But we've got and a great MI-24 that I have plans to build in the near future ;)

Thanks buddy :)

Sir, do you have access to the real aircraft?  something isnt sitting right with me and those seats....ours were more basic.  Pilots seat was a nomex mesh stretched tight on a removable (designed to crumple in a crash) seat frame.  back seats were nothing more than an OD green nomex cushion......Ill look for pictures if you want.....other than that, its fantastic!

I quickly looked up the seat for 206 on Google and was able to find at least 5 different styles. Excellent work Chavdar.

Thank you Shawn :) give my best :)

 

Hi Dan :) yep this photos are from our 01 Bell 206, and I try to replicate the texture of those seats :)

Those seats are the same, just like Martin's first picture at his post :)

Maybe when I paint them they will look like as the real things :)

 

Once again thank you friends and your comments are always welcome :)

Here's a TH-67 cockpit. It's the US Army's version of the Bell Jet Ranger.
