This 412 has the low skids which are even lower due to a hard landing by the previous owner which flattened them out a bit. I will Be Meeting up with my friend and mentor copterdoctor tomorrow and try to build some high skids maybe with floats.

Details details, we're never done. The best part is watching it "come to life" as you add them.

Hi Marc
That is so true...
The devil is in the details
I’m with Emile today and he ended making a new main shaft to lower the rotorhead to the correct height as it was way too high.
In about five minutes he had a tall landing gear to install. Just need to finish mounting holes, etc...
Will post pics tonight

Yup, we spent much of today getting the rotorhead lowered, a new set of landing gear mounted and resetting the throttle and pitch curves. Fortunately i had a set of gear from my marvelcraft bell 407 originally that looked pretty good so we used them. They'll get painted later.

Thank you Klem for the LG details pic!! Much appreciated!!

Yes! Emile hooked me up with tall landing gear in a few minutes. When he pulled out his original MC 407 LG we both laughed because they fit and looked pretty much correct. Now I just need to make the steps and detail them before paint. We installed the LG then Emile made a new shorter main shaft to lower the rotorhead height. The old one was way too high for a proper scale look. This meant making new control rods and resetting everything which emile made short work of
I don’t know if emile knows just how much I appreciate his time and efforts but I could never show it enough. I don’t pay him for the chief test pilot duties cause he enjoys the flying too much
Now today I’m installing nav lights.

Figured I’d squeeze in one last little detail on the 412 before I hit the road for a few days. The 412 did not have any non-slip pad on the roof so after looking at some full scale pics, I added the pad. It’s just non-slip material skateboarders use and I paid $5 for a large sheet. It already has the glue back and it’s not coming off once it’s on.
