What things to choose?
Hi everybody!

I am a beginner in the scale heli modelling. I have T-rex 450 for flying but i felt that it`s not for me (for example i don`t like 3d flying). I decided to create a .50 size high detail heli model. I saw this model of Hughes 500D http://www.heli-world.com/detail.aspx?ID=2751 . Is this a good detailed model? Where can i see the military version? Can i use with this body Raptor 50 or Concept 46 VR ? Which is the best fit? Also please give me advice about other scale futures for this model, i.e. navigation lights, scale rotor hubs, scale exaust system, cockpit and etc.

With the best wishes,
Alex.

Scale Info....
Hi Alex,

If you go to this site, it will let you know what mechanics will fit the fuselages listed. http://www.centuryheli.com/products...l?currentid=156

From there you will have to pick and choose what you want to do, and how detailed you want to make your heli..
BUT, if your only experience is with a T-Rex, then I would suggest that you pick the mechanic's (50 sized at least) and learn to fly it in the pod and boom version first... not that you can't fly it after learning on a "rex",and it will most likely be a lot easier for you, BUT there are a lot of different things about a nitro machine that you will need to learn prior to "hiding" it in a fuselage..
The fuselage that you are looking at would make a very nice first scale machine, and you can fit it out as much as you like... but as you grow into scale, you may want to look at some as "fun scale" and then the "scale" birds....the difference is the detail that is on the machine when completed.. take a look at my gallery and you will see the Jet Ranger and the Augusta, which I consider "fun scale", then take a look at the Vario Jet Ranger and the Hughes 500... these would be considered "scale" (at least by me!!!) The Jet Ranger (blue) has the most detail and is copied from the full sized unit (first picture) as close as possible... these both have Vario Benzin mechanics with petrol engines, while my "fun scale" have the regular nitro burning engines....
Also a good site to help you choose a subject would be;
http://www.airliners.net/
Take your time and learn to fly the nitro birds, and while you are learning, pick the ship that you want to build in scale, then select the fuselage that fits your needs....
I hope this helps you out a little at least.... best of luck and let us know how and what you are doing... and welcome to the world of scale!!!! Stan
