    You could allways leave out the cockpit and leave it to the constuctive people, kind of like the same concept as the fidlersgreen models and the cub and what not. Its an idea but I understand your waning. Its been a long project for ya :)

    I'm glad the model seems to meet the approval of all the beta builders I've heard from. One of the reasons I haven't finished yet is that I have been improving the model in various ways. One example is the stub wings. On the one I sent to the beta builders the trailing edge corner was square on the new design that corner has been rounded off like the real thing and it gives it a much more finished look to the model. I've also added a couple of other slight detail improvements that only the beta builders will recognize but hopefully everybody will appreciate.

    This is still technically a beta build since I'm seeing if it all works out okay and I didn't want to start a new thread. Just thought I'd give a preview of what's coming.

    You'll note if you look carefully that the glare on the windscreen (my one contribution to the paint job) doesn't match with the glare on the other windows. That has been corrected and I've found a few other minor problems that need to be fixed and I'm sure I'll find a few more before I'm done but here she is. Kudos to Alex aka Modelincard for a very nice paint job.

    You'll note I tried to use a sharpie to cover the seems, it didn't work to well.

    This thread lives again!

    Hi Willja,
    Glad to see this project and thread going again! :)
    I had given up on it since the last post, before today, was in 2005.
    That's one sharp looking model so far!
    Can't wait to see the finished product!

    All good things come to those who wait!:grin:

    No the project was never dead just in the hands of busy people who did their best to get it done with limited time. I hope the finished product turns out okay cause if there's a weak link it's me.

    Here is some more progress. There are more pics that I'm sure you would like to see but I can't get my computer to work, so here is the one I did manage to get right.

    Just thought I'd let you all know what scale the model is, right now it's about1/32.6. I just scaled it to the size I thought would fit best on letter sized paper so I guess I did pretty good as 1/33 seems to be the standard large scale in card modeling. The fuselage is approx. 15.5 in. in length and I haven't measured the rotor yet. These pics are from last night but I thought they might be of interest.

    The gun cover is held by three rods the biggest is just a carrythrough from the main gear and the smaller two I haven't put in just cause I didn't want to.

    I plan on devoting a couple hours tonight to the project so maybe more pics tommorrow but I'm a slow builder mostly due to a mild case of A.D.D.

    Aaaahhhh, she' a real beauty to behold Willja!

    Those smooth, flowing, graceful curves! I can't wait to get my hands on her!

    Whooaa, down boy! Down! Control yourself!

    She looks sweeter every time you show a little more of her!

    This looks better and better.

    Really a great work. I'm a newbie but the models looks great.
