LSP TIGERMEET-GB : FINISHED

Recommended Posts

Hy mates,

while the "Rhino" is in the spraybooth I decided to start another Tigermeet-bird which was already planned when I sorted the storage over the x-mas days. Did´nt know that I have an ol Revell SA330 Puma "German Border Patrol" and when I found this beast I decided to give it one of the nice "Tigermeet"-cammos of the british Sqadron. Will have to do the tiger-paintjob by hand but this should not be a real problem.

I always wanted to do a bige Heli ( and this thing is BIG!), not at least for stepping into the challenge to give it a full set of working rotors and lights :(

 

Here is the real one, work will start next week......

 

enjoy

 

cheers

tailsection...............to prevent from extensive mechanical constructions and eventual mailfunctions I decided to give her seperate motors for main and tail-rotor, here is the tailrotor ( tiny motor from a scrapped handy which is used usually as motor for the vibration function)

:) You are a crazy man...ripping plastic from birth no doubt. I love what you're doing...now...where's that 24V 12 plate truck battery eh? Lets get them blades sharpened up and whooshing when any old codgers lean anywhere near your Corsair.

 

Great stuff Chris..Matty

Nice :lol: Question begs to be asked " But will it fly?? and will you be able to duck fast enough when you start it up??" :P :P

 

Always love to see your work Chris keep them flying

Hy mates, here´s a short update of the "lady in black":

 

paintjob done , I used only the Tigers-head from the kits decals, to prevent from having troubles placing the stripe-decals around the back fuselage I prefered to do them by hand.

 

Another layer of gloss, then she´ll get her decals
