Hi Guys,


I'm slowly dawdling along with this project but progressing slowly.  I decided to crew the cabin to liven it up, so I'm into figure building as well.  The seat framing was fun and I just need to add the webbing now.  I made Israeli style FN machinegun mounts and have crew members for both sides.  All the cabin needs to be complete before closing the fuselage halves.

I had some time to look over the rotor head/mast this weekend and (of course) the detailing was way too simplified to to leave it, as is.  So after hours of staring at diagrams and photos, I began to whack away with Dremel tool and hobby knife.  Pulled my collection of styrene strip and brass tubing out and gave it some details.  I'm not a rotary wing guy by any means, but like most scale model builds, you can learn alot while doing the research.  Anyway, here's the result....

I made a little progress and got the fuselage together without any problem.  One long seam to fill and almost ready for paint.  I also mounted the rotor gearbox to the vertical tail (not in this photo.  Everything is coming along nicely.  I'll update with more as I start to paint.  

Thanks for your kind words !!
