Hi guys

Interesting Group Build, fits perfectly with my problems, because it doubles parts to build Helicopter. Double seat, double remote control, collective double, double landing skid and often twin-engine, twin rudder, two doors on each side, are almost always well ...

I want to realize my crazy idea of ​​having a Military Helo every American country and if possible without repeating the model! ... already finished my first, a 1/32 HH-43 Huskie Testors USAF.



and now is the turn to a second model, I would like to participate with the 1/32 Revell 04402 Bk-117,


The model:




teh sprues:



After considering several options, I decided to build the MBB-117 kit that militarized American countries Helo I know this only two Colombia and Chile, My decision made ​​quickly for their showy: the Colombian Helo





This model has a few in my view detail, and with a little scratch to see who did it.

So let's start ...
model does not come with the doors open, with fine knife # 11, patience and a bit of force, start the cuts. The drivers door was more delicate, the front post is too thin. If problems resulted.




Interested adjust the profile of the nose, so we removed the same way



This image corresponds to the cuts.



Then I make holes to the cabinet control panel



and by the time it's all folks .. success with their projects

A) I put poles reinforcements and air intake duct

C) space was left for the gate guides
D) undercover adjusted the outer frame

You are doing an inspiring job, and I am in awe of your work.  You want to check out ARC, Niek (Seaking Pilot) is building a Revell 32nd BK as well and is top stuff.  You might want to check his out as well.  Let me know if I can offer any help

Now, a small advance



inner panels to fit windows 


in this kit, once you open doors, you'll see that the deck does not fit to the inside panels, you need to add 3.5mm styrene.

the door is already aligned to the pillar and slide smoothly



making panels for pillars.


by the time it's all folks,, seems little ... :rolleyes:  ...
