If it looks black in some light, then that is pretty accurate. Keep us updated

Paul, it's been a long road but I can relate. Tremendous job- the machine is a work of art.

Paul- I don't know this fuselage personally but I know of the heat issues inside from the turbine/exhaust from others who have built them.

So my question: would it not create more airflow and allow heat to escape if you cut out for the windows without putting the actual windows in the cutouts?

Sure you may have to add a layer of carbon to strengthen around the cut outs but would seem to help you achieve the look and solve some of the heat issues associated with the fuselage. Food for thought.

Looks fantastic! Well done indeed. Ray

Flying without side windows would look awful on such a scale masterpiece...

Matt- I'm referencing the rear windows that were in question not the side windows.

The turbine ducts on the doghouse allow airflow in and the rear windows if he chose to cut them out would provide a natural outlet for air/heat. You could put a screen of sorts over the cutouts to simulate the window color.

No matter, it was just a question to continue the discussion.

hi ray

thanks for the thoughts now the fuz is painted I think it will be a lot of messing to cut them out what i will do is see how it gos and if when its flying i have to much heat issue i might cut them out.

Its slow going but iv put on the downlink its not total scale but i think it looks ok for standoff scale,iv put a piv on of the full scale for your ref

Hi Paul....

Again, fantastic job on your helicopter! I think it looks very scale. Sure there is always more one can do but yours is at the upper end of detailing that I see.

I'm sure the heat will be fine and I agree if its already painted why fuss with it.

Please post a video of your first flight. Many thanks, Ray
