Soda Can Exhaust
My last post for today. I think these cans are going to work. They are just taped in now but after they are glued I think they will be just fine. I punched hole on the joints and ran a small piece of solder threw them and heated the ends to swell. Then I tapped them flat like a small rivet made of no lead solder.I don't think they have to be all that strong. They are not sanded or finished I just hit them with some flat black to see what they looked like. Sweet now they look like Exhaust Pipes.

Fuel Door
Well I played around at work a little and made this fuel door. It is raw not finished but it looks a lot like the one on the Fun-Key fus. I will paint the inside red and the outer bezel silver or the color of the fus. what ever color that turns out to be.

Paint fuel door
OK I painted the door and added some detail cut hinge ( not really) and put a pin threw it, but I just looked on the other side but lower and it looks like another fuel door. I guess they have two fuel doors? Now I have to make another one. Wish I would have looked closer.

Gauge panel
Thanks Roy I would like to have a 90 size hehe that would be cool.

I found a picture of the gauges in a Bell 222 and printed them. Hard to find good, correct pictures for free. I guess they don't have to be correct it's just for fun. Here are some pics. don't be too hard on me, kind of rough.

Thanks Hoverup for the encouragement, found it hard and very slow. This heli isn't really scale the lines on the front don't line up with the gauges they, the gauges seem big and not to straight lol hard to cut all the circles in all the right sizes and places or gluing all the layers together without making to big of mess.
Something else to look at, hinges do I make the back doors open or the front doors open? That is the question, the only problem is the front left door was cut on the door line. These are so cool they're from Airstar International.
