Awesome that you will leave the cockpit fully open for details. I struggled a long time to get that in my build but IT IS WORTH IT....

I am looking forward to seeing how you'll make this happen as the seer prophecized that a "large huey is in my future"....

Hey Barry, wow, with your feet in the picture it really gives it a better perspective on how big it is going to be.

I didn't crash. I just ran out of airspeed, altitude, and ideas all at the same time!

Peter: That fuse looks pretty darn big... I'd like to see it out of the box and mocked up with the tail taped in place. That would give us all a good idea of the true size. What scale is it?

Klem: I'll be modifying the mechs side frames soon. I'll post up after I get that mod sorted out.

Ron: Yeah, this fuse is a good size. I'll be able to do a full cabin.

In the meantime, I made a little progress. The front wood kit is fitted, it took a bit of work up in the nose, but it fits nice and snug. I'm working on the wood for the rear of the fuse at the moment.

Out of the box

Barry, as a comparison the Vario R22 is the same size as yours
I think the Huey was listed as 3m length

Here's the latest progress. I've been fitting up the rear woodwork lately. I like the way vario has tied the mechs into the wood framework, it should be quite stout. All of the woodwork is just temporarily bonded with hobby epoxy. After everything is final fitted, I'll bond it with Hysol. Just a heads up to anyone who's building this kit. DO NOT bond the rear wood kit in until you can check the fitment to the mechs. It doesn't fit exactly the way Vario depicts it in the blue prints. You need to fasten the top wood "U" channel brace to the top of the mechs, then move the bulkhead wood around and fit it to match the location of the mechs.

Looking good Barry!! Brings back memories of building.Whats the scheme going to be? Are you planning on cutting the support between the small and big door? I did on the two I built with no support issues.

Thanks guys

Taylor: I'm thinking about these 3 choices for a paint scheme, but I'm open to any suggestions. These 3 are all out of BC Canada, so I'll probably have to ask a friend up there to provide pics. But I'll scour the net first. I'm looking for something colorful (easy to see) and hopefully with plenty of available pics.

So, I'm back from a work trip and I got started back up on this heli. This fuse kit was originally designed around Turbine mechs. Vario gives you a 3.5 lb steel weight to go in the nose for balance. Since I'm going electric with this build, I decided to machine an aluminum plate to replace the steel version, cutting 2/3 of the weight. I'm putting the lipos under the floor in front of the main shaft, so I should have more than enough balance weight. But... just in case it's not enough, I drilled and tapped the aluminum plate so that I can add additional (bolt in) weight in the nose if needed.

I also built up the 50 degree gearbox. It's a nice piece and should work quite well.
