Here's a picture of mine with the NYPD paint scheme. Pretty easy build - not much on insturctions, but okay! I used landing gear instead of the wheels and made my skids out of aluminum tubes (to make the bends without it kinking I filled them with wet sand and packed really tight then bent them in the angle that I liked). Just use zip ties to secure the TREX frame to the wooden frame of the fuselage. For the tail, I just took the screw out of the pivot point from the control arm and took the side off where the set pin is on the pinion and took the whole tail shaft and tail rotor out all assembled - so that when you put it through the body all you have to do is slide the tail shaft back in and put the set pin in the pinion, put the 3 screws back in the tail assembly and then put the screw back in the pivot point. I switched the tail pulley b/c the old one had set screws and I had to tighten them a 1/4 turn at a time! To put the front of the fuselage and windshield on I put 3 screws on both sides for a total of 6. One set went at the top by the tail numbers, the others by the top window and the last set through the windsheild. I used screws from the inside out of the fuselage with washers on the them and then small nuts and then the threads on the screws pointing outward are enought to keep the front piece on or you can put another nut over the top if it if needed to really secure it!
