I noticed that in the pic with Angelina sitting next to the EC-135, that the pink radome mysteriously disappeared. It's time for a coat of primer so that she may not notice, although my grand kids bust me every time I try something like this.

yes i have to keep it out of sight til' i disguise it
well it was all about the tail today. did some sanding on the fenny's housing and cut out the two recessed areas for what i assume is the hand grab for moving the heli around on the ground. this being the older vario fuse, it didnt come with the lower stabilizer fin molded in so i resorted to some well known materials for this and in an instant it was built. i then needed a cover for the fenny geabox and after about a 5 minute look around the house and out in the carport i came accross a likely candidate in the cap of an old spraycan of ????
construction paper made up the stator fins and i finally called it a day after finishing up a set of 30 size jetranger gear bound for the land of OZ

i did, it is all balsa and had a kalt enforcer in it years and years ago. it had retrax and a semi shrouded tail. it was FAAAAAAAAAST!
now retired it sits on the shelf full of memories
it is actually number two. the first one i built was taken from drawings of what the comanche was believed to be looking like since it wasnt actually built yet. then by the time it came off the drawing board, i had a crash mith my number one model (long story) then built number two from more acurate pictures.
prototype number one is the second foto.
now i am not saying there's a number three in the works, i am not saying

Now all you need is one of these to make the tail control all the more scale looking and bullet proof.

Wow, nice looking build Emile! Cute helper too.

Do you use a hot knife to cut the openings for the windows and doors?

Hey Larry!! thanks!
yeah a hot knife is the way to go. clean cut without much of a gap and it cuts thru the glasswork quite easily and most times quickly

got the tailboom mounted and the mechs mounted as well. the tailboom is mounted where it can be easily removed and the mechanics are mounted to a plywood base that has a built in slight forward tilt so give the fuselage that slight nose high attitude in the hover.

slight detour

had to put the EC135 on the nackburner for an evening to get some work done on the seaking. i had hoped to have it back in the air by this march atthe birmingham alabama fly in. last year it had a crash at that event. i made a few changes. i swapped mechanics, i am using a set of xcell mechs i had laying around and took the predator i had in it and am now using it for the ec. the vario bendix 5 bladed head now resides on a friend's 1/4 scale md500 and i got a century 5 bladed head to replace it. the retrax wilno longer be pneumatic, but mechanical instead. the toughest parts of the repair are done, patching all the holes and building new woodwork for the xcell mechs.
now i can finish it as i work on the ec as it willbe down hill form here

Just when I thought the seaking would be retired... I stand corrected. New mechs and some sheet metal work and its back in the air.
