I have been working on this project for well over a year, an hour here, hour there. Well I must say that she has been through her flight trials and the Helicopter feels nice in the air. She is a bit heavy and the added weight take some time to get use to as the head speed is a a mere 1700rpm. I am also using wood blades, which for what they are actually flies very good. Just wanted to share some pics with you.

I still have a bit more weathering to do on the complete heli, as well as addition decals and some more work on the cockpit. I am also wondering where I would find a nice pilot for this bird? as the interior feel bare without one!

OOHHHH! Is that looking sweet or what!!! I like how you relocated the servos to allow cabin/cockpit detailing. I may try the same with mine over the winter.

I have the same that is powered by an OS46. It has always been one of my all time scale helis when it comes to its flight characteristics.

I loved the fact it came with a releative scale like hinging system for its opening and closing doors.

I really like the way you hid the lipos and RX batt on the litters. Now all you need to do is 86 the flybar Nice looking heli.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

Excellent Work!! Your weathering skills are great! My guess is that you've been building static models since you were young! Well done Jason.

Hey Red!

I have been a big fan of Static Models for years, but one day I said would it be great to see these things fly, and many years later here I am, never had to weather anything that big before, still in the process of getting it where I want it. It still need a wash, and and a light sanding on dirt to give it look!

Your rust spots are good! You can also take a graphite pencil or a silver/steel Berol Prismacolour pencil and rub the edges of areas that are metal. It gives the perfect illusion of worn paint and you can control it better than silver paint. Dust some shaved/sanded grey/black and brown charcoal in the recesses, it gives the area some depth. Spray the area with some flat, Clear Testor's lacquer paint to keep it from rubbing off as well. Keep the work coming!

That is very impressive indeed!!!

Here is a video of me having some fun with mine:

This has been one of my favorite scale helis to fly around with for many years now.

Looks like that Lycoming is burning a lot of oil though

Actually on the 15% fuel it can be set to smoke a lot less.
