I have been looking for over 2 yrs for a 407 Fuse and no one seems to be making one, I'm converting a Long Ranger III into one. Its been done by a few people already and they look great.

Same here.... Nobody seems to be marketing one so I'm left to modify a 206L. Does anybody have any information regarding the difference between the 206L and 407 fuselage? Would be nice to have some 3 views to figure it out (ie. cowling, length/width, windows, etc..).

that guy has a very nice PHi paint job. I fly in the real 407's all the time and my father flew them for another offshore company called Air logistics. The one that the other man has in that pic seems to be more of the 206L model heli, it does not have the 4 bladed system nor the vibration cap on the top of the rotor head. The engine cowling is a little off also, but all in all that is a beatiful helicopter and would love to see it and get one. You would think since there was so many 206's out there that someone would be making a scale 407 body. One day hopefully!!!!!!!!!

Here is one I built that started as a Miniature Aircraft 206L. There small differances between the 407 and 206L.

Look here.

Jacksonville Sheriff's office just got one of those last year with a homeland security grant. They called it the Super Bowl Chopper. I've got some hangar pic's of it, that thing is SWEET.

No one makes a 407. So you have to resort to kit bashing!!!
Mine is the Funky 50 size longranger that i moded for ht e407 looks. Windows, fins, and Gear make it close. Lots of little details done with paint to bring out the latches and panel lines can make a heli go from good to GREAT!!

If you are thinking of doing a 407, start with the 60 size fuses. The booms and tails are more correct than the 50 sizes. And if you dont go overboard on the weight of the machine, then a 50 size set of mechanics will work fine!! I have the 60 size fuse with raptor 50 mechanics and its got all the power it needs.

the PHI 407 in the picture is over 11 lbs and when i put the water bucket under that, its another 2.5 lbs and the Thunder Tiger Pro 50 did better than i have ever expected!!! the extra weight makes it a smooth flyer too!!! It did have a 4 bladed head on it but it just wasnt as fun with all the headaches of a head that sucked up the extra power and didnt have any other way of calming down the flight charicteristics of the 4 blader, so it was back to the proven 2 blade head and more FUN!!!

If you want a large Bell 407 fuse then send an e-mail to Darrel Sprayberry at darrelluh1b@alltel.net. His company "Unique Aircraft" produces and sells a nice Huey fuse. He has plans to produce the Bell 407 which will be a large fuse say for a 90 size glow or gas engine.

that is a very beatiful heli. i have flown in a couple of the PHI 407's as well as the Air logistics. Which i think has a better paint job. LOL Thanks for letting me see the pics. I want to do a 407 to fly alittle but also more of a memory of my father that flew the first one for air logistics. But again thank you

P.S.
thanks Mike G for the info.....
