Hey Rich, make that four who kept them alive. Steve who goes by heli_headcase has the Hicks 412 that was used in the scalehouse ads. He was selling it and wanted $1200 last time I saw him at Dalton. He converted it to electric and it is the best sounding cheap mans turbine.
Take a look at Steves gallery for pics of it. He also has a video on runryder.

Hi Rich,

Sorry no new pics. The last thing I did on it was the radome. Taking a short break and putting together another Hirobo Freya, then I will resume and update with pictures. Hope you had a nice Christmas and have a great New Year. Bill

Hi Bill
Any work or update on your 412?

I love the 412 but have one too many ongoing projects so I leap frogged to the end result.
Here are some pics and maybe they will motivate you to finish yours...

Nothing wrong with going straight to the end product. I've seen videos of that 412 flying and it sounds and looks nice. I'm glad you have it. Regarding mine, I'm embarrassed to say, no progress since my last post, but I need to get back to it. These emails help. Thanks, Bill

New shoes arrived for my 412.

If you followed the skid build by David Goss, the skids were for my 412. They arrived yesterday and fit beautifully. To say David is a craftsman is a true understatement. He was so meticulous in the build and details I couldn't be happier. Now I have to do the skids justice and finish the model with more detail. I also want to say thank you to Roy for assisting me with other 412 build information. Anyway, just wanted to share the photos.

Hi Roy, unfortunately no progress. Other than installing the landing gear DG made, I haven't had a chance to do a thing. Just very busy at work. I plan to retire next year and then I won't have any excuses, though I doubt it will take that long for my next update. BTW, Your 412 is looking great. Love the green upper windows!Bill

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the compliment! I'm slowly working on it but there's not a lot more I can do to it since it's a prepainted fuse. Biggest issue is matching the pant so I can do the landing gear finally.

I did the green windows with a clear green stick on light plastic film I ordered from Amazon. It's a med sized roll so if you want a piece to do your glass, PM me your mail addy and I will send it to you.
Take care!
