This feels like a never ending project
still so much left to be added to the exterior. the last few nights after work have been spent making and installing stuff for the exterior. the sliding door rails turned out ok till I had a closer look at things, they will have to be modified just a little. wiring the lights took about three hours worth of work but no cussing. working on the landing lights and rescue winch/hoist, painting the main rotorblades this weekend and hope to start on the cockpit by next week but not till all the exterior stuff is done. I picked up the markings for the Lakota yesterday so I will be working on that too, oics to come over there on that thread soon. still don't know what I am gonna do for pilots for my 407, haven't been seeing many figures the right size at my usual sources. I am getting it back to flying status for a possible demo tomorrow involving a B17

Hey Emile, looks really cool bud. I like the way you included the bend in the LG (between the 2 rear mounting points). Like they say, "the Devil's in the details".

I know exactly what you are talking about, Emile. Every time I look at my CH-139, I see a bunch of items that I need to make up to finish it off (are they ever really finished???). Yours is really starting to look like a 407 hit with a shrink ray. Take care.

Hi Edward,

That rectangular scoop you mentioned is for air conditioner?
But I see it is not placed on every Bell 407.

Perhaps I could add it to my Bell 407?

Cheers,
George

Still a lot to be done to mine including the AC condenser cooler. Got the rescue hoist, the slung load hook, windows, flir mount, drain plungers n much much more. :-) I won't be cutting a hole for my scoop either Ed.
Chopper kid, welcome! It's up to u what you want to add or not, detailing gets addictive though, it's difficult to stop :-)

Thanks Guys,
I just start adding details for my 407...its a long way to go.
I've done some corrections and improved the engine grille.

Is the AC scoop moveable piece? some picture shows it extended down
during flight.
maybe I try making the scoop works on my bird.
Pictures here shows the 407 bottom, one of it has a round shape opening..and do not have the AC Scoop.

Next job here for me is to cut out the top and bottom vent....

Cheers.
George

Yes, those do look good. An old friend of mine would describe that as a lean, mean, gutter snipe. I am also very much in favour of low gear as they are so seldom seen and that is why I want to get them right on my CH-139. Keep the pics coming, George.

Rich, I didn't actally cut the boom down, just added a shim cut with a slight angle made from wood..:-)
