Since I am a glutten for punishment, I have gotten myself into another "pickle" , but am hopeful, that I can find a way out.
I am playing around with the RC Aerodyne Bell 206 (BJR) fuselage in 450 scale. Since I can't leave well enough alone, I decided to cut out the chin bubbles, as in this fuse they are just kinda forgotten about and are part of the fiberglass fuse.. Well that just wouldn't do for me, as the outline of her looks pretty decent (much better than the Heliartist one)...
Looks decent enough..a little farme work..some glue.. well you know..
Here's my problem, I was going to use my cutout fiberglass pieces as a psitive mold to make some new vac chins, but alas one one mine decided to eat itself in my Dremel upon extraction from the fuse.
Ok, "no biggie" I said. Darth makes a 206 in 450 and in clear, buy it and gut the nose for the chin..problem solved... WELL..in talking to Darth, his fuse is smaller than the fiber one, so the bubble won't work out..well MAYBE..but most likely not. I am not looking forward to spending 60 bucks just to find out either...
However, I can go BIGGER in search for a replacement. I know that Vario does a Glazing (Windows) set (I just looked at it on the East Coast Page), but the set is 30 bucks, and to be honest I only need two parts (the bubbles) from it anyway to trim down for my need.
What I am hoping to find is either :
A. Somebody who bought the Vario glazing(windows)set and never used the chins, and who could possibly sell, give, beqweath them to me..
B. Somebody's "epiphony" on how do fix this some other way.. (I'm open) however do to the curves on the chin area it won't be easy unless you capture the complex cuves of the nose to make it look correct.
Many Thanks for reading this. I GREATLY APPRECIATE any ideas, assitance, hopes and prayers, ect...
I used to be normal, but then I started flying heli's....
