Build Pics for Bell 412 Skid Set
I have completed the drawings for a new Skid Set I am fabricating.. I'll produce some build pic as I go along this time.

This Bell 412 gives an idea of the final skid set.

This scale is 1/8, but the last couple of skids I did were 1/4 for a Jetranger...

Scorpion..

I build each of these to scale for the machine they need to fit. The ones above are for 1/8 scale.. The Vario is closer to 1/7 I believe. I can't quote you a price here as it depends on the level of Scale detail you need me to include.. I'll PM you over the weekend to find out what you are looking for.

A little more progress after quite a bit of work.

I have redrawn the whole Skid Set to incorporate my new step mounts.

A prototype of the step mount.

and a set of part completed steps. The flat step platform still needs to go on!!

With one thing and another, progress up to now has been painfully slow but I should start to make more progress now hopefully

The final 'mod' on the Cross tubes and the Skid set is nearly ready for paint.

I have to finish the tops for the steps and attach to the mounts.. A job for tomorrow :-)

Thanks Steve.. I'd like to be able to replicate some of what you do !!! (I was kicking myself as I couldn't get the 4 screws in each side of the step clamp like on the full size!!)

The bracket that holds the step (with the 4 bolts), did you mill that from a solid piece or how did you do that, if you don't mind me asking?
