    thanks for the link chris, but i already have those instructions, but they are not understandable... i mean the parts for the cockpit are too many and the instructions are too much specific and one really cant make anything out of it... i dont know y the designer left the cockpit instructions, otherwise this model wd have been one of the best i suppose....

    It's a nice build from what I can see. I am a stickler for details and if something has a cockpit, i'd be pleased as punch to build it but ... Airwolf is meant to be menacing and building the interior would only give away some of the menacing look. As for the shiney paper, I like it but I am not 100% on this. Being a stealthy, black, cloak and dagger operator that Airwolf is supposed to be ... not having the matte appearance kind of detracts from this image.

    I can say that if it is possible. If you do build the interior and put in the windows ... get some window tint for the canopy so that you can still see inside but from a distance it's menacing look of 'WHO'S FLYING THAT THING!?!' remains. =)

    Again... nice build. My printed copy sits in a folder at the top of my build list.

    Willja67 did a great design of this helo and you did it justice so far. [​IMG]

    Your model looks really good atamjeet! As far as the cockpit goes I never test built it and I don't know if the parts work or not. In any case the parts would have to have been installed before the fuselage skin was wrapped around it. A few months ago I started refining the model and have quite a bit of the cockpit section done but not finished or test built.

    If you have any questions let me know.

    PS it's good to see that someone finally built it (other than my testbuilders)
