I came across a 450 sport frame in the case that I bought for my 450 pro. So I decided to make it a scale bird. So now I have my 450 pro, 450 scale and my 600E.

Nice fuselage. If you want to get creative, find some 6mm brake line at your local auto store, a cheap tubing bender from Harbor Freight, and make some nice scale-looking gear...

Below are before and after pics of my 450 sized UH-1D.

After bending, the tubing was soldered using StayBrite silver bearing solder.

I have been debating on how scale I want to get with it. I was originally going to go for the real scale and put the tail blades on the correct side and switch the rotor direction. If I was to do this over again, I would have done this with a 450 pro with the torque tube. I am not looking fwd to having to adjust or change the belt. I did find some pics on the net of the outside looking in. So I matched it with the heli and taped it inside. Not perfect, but looks better than looking at wires and frame.

Thanks. If you look at the front cockpit, it kind of looks like the inside is detailed. I sort of cheated and found a front view and a side cockpit view on the internet. I then matched the size of the pics and printed them. I then taped the shots to the inside. I figured it looks better than seeing a battery and wires. As far as flying it, it flies great and I was quite shocked on how well it does.
