Also...E6000 will become brittle and peel off over time. I Too, used to think PFM/E6000 were the same...they are NOT! ( I learned the hard way..)Home of the "Sea Cobra".....

Agree.. I have used them all in my quest to avoid epoxy.. E6000, Goop, Shoe goo.. all not meeting my requirement. Shoe goo is about the best of the three... but they all shrink..

E6000 is NOT the same as PFM. It has a solvent which is carcinogenic and stinks. It can take upto 72 hours to dry. PFM has no smell and will set in 8 hours.
I stand corrected. Apologies for the misinformation. I would have bet a buck or two that PFM was relabeled E6000. Learn something new from the Master (Peter) all the time!

back on track, the seats Vario have supplied are for the Allouette 2. As it happens, early Lamas used the same seats so their wire frame could be correct depending on which machine you are basing your model.

I have had to fire up the 3D printer to make the IP so I figured I would make some wire frames on the printer while i had it running. So, it will take a while. I am just going to do the base, not the back.

Meanwhile I must look at their turbine and see how it needs painting. It will probably be an airbrush job.

I actually did on the Nats model, but this one is only a toy so I'll use Varios seats as they come.

For the wire base they supply a piece of 3mm steel wire and tell you to bend it to shape. Trying to bend 4 of them exactly the same was too much like hard work so I printed something a little more accurate up. The design took me less than an hour. Much more fun than bending steel wire.

Over the weekend between flying, fixing my RV and cleaning the house and shop, I made some parts on my 3D printer. The first parts out of the printer were the instrument panels which I had already designed for the Alouette 2

Vario have changed the molding for the instrument binnacle a little so a bit of sanding is needed but when fitted it looks like this

Then I started designing the seat mount. I was just going to do the base, on the full size there is a support for the back as well but as Vario have supplied some nice fiberglass seats, there is no need for the back. This is what they look like before painting and mounting

And this is what they look like on the seats

A 12" pilot is just about the right size for this model, maybe a tad too tall. I dressed her in some civilian clothes, but they are too big as they were made for a muscular GI-Joe figure. She will just have to look baggy

I'm having second thoughts about her, maybe it will be a dude next time you see it.

Thanks guys. Marcus has not tried it yet, he is a little daunted by it. He had a hover on my 407 and liked that even though he was a bit nervous of it. I told him the Lama was even nicer so next time he comes out, I will get him on the sticks.

He prefers smaller helis and is working on stuffing a Goblin 500 into a Marvelcraft Huey. Whatever keeps his interest is good by me.

The thing is, he is flying on a Spektrum DX7 so all his helis have Spektrum Rx's. I have switched to a Jeti tray radio which is a bit big for him as he insists on flying thumbs despite my objections.

Little does he know that a Jeti non tray radio is coming for Christmas so we will be able to switch pilots fairly quickly with a quick rebind, but don't tell him
