I'm pretty sure Jim would have been proud to see his old models still going.

I'm building the Morley Lynx at Present, Mounted on Morley MXA Mechanics which is was designed for. I've still got a way to go yet with the detailing and rivets etc but it's getting there. I've modified it to move the front skid supports forward to the correct position and it looks a lot better.

Pic shows it awaiting the tailboom to be mounted. I'm currently in the process of joining the 2 boom halves together. I do also have the 4 blade tail rotor for this one.

I also have a Morley A109 in the queue waiting to be built.

Hi, thanks for showing us your pic. will be great to see it finished.
I'm still hunting some parts to get the Jet Ranger flying again. mainly the servo mounts, they seem to have been made for this heli only. Also great news that Pete Christy has now made some of the original vac form mouldings for the Bell 47G, incl. doors, tanks etc.

You have to keep smiling.

The Old Bell 47's certainly seem to be a popular model and there have been a few on ebay recently. There is a complete one on there now that looks quite tidy.

Nice to see that new canopies etc have also been sorted. The canopies always seem to be the one part that is missing or damaged, hardly surprising with the size of it I suppose.

I don't have the Bell 47 myself but I do have a soft spot for this machine as it is the first real Heli I ever flew in at Middle Wallop as my Father was an Army Air Corps Pilot. I also got the chance to fly in one again at 16 Flight Army Air Corps in Dhekelia, Cyprus when we were based there. Maybe when room allows, I will add one to my fleet.
