EVERYTHING is top secret!! LOL!

I use standard Formula 560 canopy glue. Purchased from my local Hobby Town.

Dont tell anyone though - it's top secret!!

Bird is going to look real nice once you complete those "FEW" details!!
Thanks for prodding me along Stan. You were right, didnt take long at all to add a few details and she will look much, much better because of it. You old guys are A-OK in my book!

Managed to get some time with the Bolkow today.

"Joe" needs a place to sit and some instruments to look at.....
20171216_165142 by Steve Smith, on Flickr

So grabbed some styrene and started making some seats and an instrument panel. First cardstock templates were made and then parts and pieces were cut......
20171209_125525 by Steve Smith, on Flickr

All assembled and ready for some primer....
20171216_113534 by Steve Smith, on Flickr

First coat of primer on and some imperfections filled and now ready for some paint. But I dont have any paint, DOH!!! So I will need to go shopping before I can finish them up. Still need to make some cushions for the seats. Everything will be held in place in the cockpit by magnets. Will document that once I get some paint LOL!

Well it's been a long time. Too long.

Finished up the fun scale instrument panel. No, it is not even close to a true scale BO-105 instrument panel, but it looks like an instrument panel, and being fun scale I am OK with it.

After a quick coat of primer and some minor touch ups here and there, based it in flat black.....

Then added color and switches and dials OH MY!!.....


And finished the seats. Forgot to take progress pics while working on these (SORRY - I'm a bit rusty!). Frames are made from various bits of styrene. Seat cushions are balsa blocks sanded to shape. Sealed them with thin CA. Then flocked them to give them a velour/suede/sheepskin kinda look. Make no mind of the seat cushion color, it will make sense when the fuse gets painted (trust me!)...

Just gotta wait it out now and hope the warmer weather arrives soon so we can paint the fuse!!

Holy crap today was a day. Painted for for almost 12 hours. But we got some stuff done. So for the big reveal....everyone is familiar with the Red Bull BO-105. Well I didn't want to do a Red Bull BO-105, BUT I wanted to keep the same spirit of the Red Bull BO-105. I decided to do a competitor to Red Bull....Monster Energy. On top of that, I wanted to make it as difficult for me as possible and decided to airbrush everything. No decals or stickers on this heli. I think it turned out OK............























I shot the clearcote after these pics taken. Next step....tint the clear glazing and fit the glazing - HAPPY! HAPPY! JOY! JOY!

I'll give you two guesses.....

I freehanded everything with a #11 x-acto; 'cause I'm awesome like that.

OR

Paint masks were provided by Callie Graphics. She is THE ONLY ONE when it comes to custom vinyl graphics and paint masks.

Cockpit finished......


Gear painted and installed. Covers set in place to give the overall look. Kinda looks like a helicopter. Hoping the tinted glazing will give it that "cool" look.....
