I wanted to model the Airborne Laser Tracker on my Cobra...felt pretty ambitious tonight so here I go! Here's a shot of the real deal at the front of the rotor housing:

Here's the sweet part, it's left overs from your build!

Use 4 of the "punch outs" from the 1/4" balsa tail rotor pushrod support.

Glue them together in a stack with thin CA.

Start a notch at the proper angle on the back side of the block.

I took a piece of sandpaper and wrapped it around the fairing and used that to sand the fairing mating side of the ALT to a perfect fit!

Smooth up the ALT with sandpaper and round it off to your liking.

Glue that puppy on!

It took me longer to edit the photos and type this up than it did to do it. Enjoy!
