Hello,

I have a Kavan Jet Ranger want to add the engine cowl vents/screen. The Kavan fuselage doesn't have it. So does anyone have a template that would work on this fuse? or make a copy for me? Not sure how to go about this.

Thank you.

Dan

Hi Dan
My wife bought me a Kavan Jet Ranger back in 1983.
What I did back then before we had this awesome resource called the Internet was I mailed Bell Helicopters a request for documentation.
They sent me a big packet with a lot of pictures and diagrams.
I then used this as a reference to draw in the vents etc on the fuse then cut them out and used door screen for the vents.
Today we have so many resources that provide closeup pics to use s reference.
In my gallery towards the back there is a pic of my then 8 year old son holding my Kavan after it as painted.

Good luck with your project!

Went to the hobby show at Perry, GA this weekend.
I have never seen so many helicopters, including scale, at this show in the past.

Lucky me, I found a Kavan Jet Ranger fuselage for $20.00. most of the mechs were missing, but I will install modern electric mechs in it.
I can now build another Kavan JR but this one will be much more detailed than my last one.

So Dan I will be shadowing your build
