str8den you may be right
Now then My first thought was to scale my SE but pity to hide all the bling, so will look out for an XL and then you will most likely be right as I can buy the fuz in England. If her indoors unlocks the purse strings I,ll have a Hughes 500. Trouble not many good second hand Rexes around .Explains why I think their the best heli around.Watch the East coast winds and keep the faith M

SH, Great video it does fly well.. Are you guys building your own head assembly, If so what are you using and how is it done. I would be interested in building a 4 blade head assembly for my Hughes 500E

Yeah, I've seen some of SH's threads on other forums. He's got some amazing heli's joined at the boom like a push-me/pull-you, others with no flybars, others with multi-rotors. Pretty incredible work.

The photo u see above (TRex fleet) was taken at Nov 13, 2006.

Before that (I think it is Oct 19, 2006), the Tandem Trex was in 2 bladed flybarless per head.

Here is the video taken during that nite funfly by w_kby again:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10M4...related&search=

That video u can see the 4 bladed TRex (the right hand side from the above fleet photo) as well.

For the left hand side 4 bladed TRex, it is upgraded to 4 rotor tail blades with similar configuration with Apache Longbow.

Here is the photo taken during Nov 19, 2006 funfly showing the 4 bladed tail rotor in successful flights:



Now, what I need is a AH-64 Apache Longbow scale body for it.

Super-Hornet has some the most ingeniously modified helis i have ever seen; 4 bladed rexes; tandem rex (now with 3 blade heads), elevated tail rotors - now with 4 bladed t-rotors!! don't forget flybarless too in conjunction with one or more of his modifications means that there seems to be no end to this guys abilities to build whatever he wants.
a new thread will have to be started to nominate ones favourite builder/tinkerer; SH definately gets my vote for top genious at the present time! be even more interesting to know what (or lack of!) specialist tools are used - like to chime-in again there Super-Hornet and let us know what your most essential piece of equipment is?
just incase i haven't mentioned it; imho SH is a GENIOUS.

Oh... Gee! Thanks str8den. U make me feel like almost blushing!

Thanks slider46 for the good comment.

Yes, I hand build all those rotor heads and the elevated tail. All parts are build out from off the self available parts.

As for the Apache scale body by Darth, last time I heard it is still under development stage and not available for sales.

Alot of people asking me why I do not build the scale body myself and so I might decided to build the Apache Longbow scale body instead. I know I lack of "Arts Creativity" but I try my best and see how.

If you buy the plastic model you can use that for a reference to your building... There is someone in the scale section that is building the Apache or cobra from balsa wood....

Yes, I was thinking of building it using balsa wood or Styrofoam

As for the BBI 1:18 Scale Apache... I can't find it in Singapore. The 21th Century Toys UH-1C that I bought and use it for my scale are the only piece left in the Static Model shop.

If I online order from States, they quote me for the shipment itself will cost me roughly the same amount as the scale.

There is a site that has very nice detail pictures of miltary helis, maybe that would give you the details that you would need? I will see if I can find the link for you..
I would really like to see a scale body on the twin rotor heli you built... like the Chinook

I too wanted to build Chinook scale for my tandem trex as well. I think Chinook body is easier to build than apache longbow.

Here is a link to the heli pics, maybe this will help you out with ideas.....http://www1.airliners.net/search/ph...arch=HELICOPTER
Both helis would be pretty easy to build with balsa wood
