I haet splel chock!
So, I decided that it needs to have cable cutters on it. Someone said that “Styrene is the greatest modeling material known to man” so I picked up a sheet of 2mm to play around with. This is cool stuff, I found a web site that has all different sizes and shapes hmmm.

Well, after a lot of fidgeting and dry clamping, I finally glued the windscreen in. Need to work on the center section but, I am very happy with the fit being that the glass is from a different mfg.

This styrene stuff is pretty cool and easy to work with.
It is starting to look good now as the nose never did fit right from the beginning. The cross bracing had to be cut out and remade as it was too long with the stock windscreen. It shortened up a little with the Roban glass. Drip rails over the doors turned out good.

Got my 4 blade tail unit and couldn't resist a mock up. The rest of the parts for the main rotor showed up today so time to get the mechanics ready.
