    ok, that last one is a CSAR/Dustoff slogan

    to me it would sound like that you are going to build one of two helicopters

    Dr. Zarkov's CH-34 Choctaw helicopter
    or Nobi's UH-1 Huey

    Ahhh...now you are entering my area of knowledge. "That Others May Live" is the motto of a unit I worked for several times during my Air Force career.

    But I still have not clue what is being said. hehe

    Well, Rick hit it on the head. While it is not exactly correct, (UH-1N vs UH-1D) I liked the paint scheme. So here is the first page of the repaint. Trust me, it looks much better at larger resolutions.

    Gotta be afk for a few weeks, so updates may be a little sparse.

    Ya'll take care

    Here are a few quick shots of the repainted Huey. It comes out
    to 3.5 inches nose to tail, with a rotor span of 4 inches.

    And now, we have the aft fuselage and tail boom installed. The framework
    for the engine bay is in work.

    So, there's the problem. If you upload your pic to insert into your
    post, you can only put one picture per post. Using a third party
    host, you can input the thumbnails and have them open to a seperate
    window.

    Hi, Ray! :smile:

    She's looking great! Keep those updates coming.

    I found posting photos to be a bit different with this server. You have to watch the number of images in each post, and it now includes such things as the smilies in the image count, so even with a third party host the smilies and such limit you per post image count.
    I use imageshack and found they give you a few options of the type of link you can use, either a thumbnail or the image itself. I started using the thumbnail image links but then I recently opted for the image itself to skip the need to click on the thumbnail link only to have another window open with the picture...that's just my preference and it seems to work alright doing it that way too.

    Looking forward to more updates and photos as you continue!

    Cheers!
