  1. You might try the hot water, form and cold water immersion option to bring it back into alignment. But I don't think it would make the issue of too short to be solved. Jager
  2. No sarcasm intended. The link was to the history of Ovation Guitars. Ovation Guitars was a company that Charles Kaman started and was involved in the design and manufacture of a fine instrument. I had no knowledge of your personal losses but I extend my condolences to you for them. Jager

E- Pasch,AEMAN. Sept 1960 page6 Rotor Tips This is my Dad. He was one of the first employees. Was a blade technician, advancing up through the company.
  4. Oliver, You should also consider putting an Ovation guitar in the aft cabin. https://www.worldmusicsupply.com/blog/ovation-guitars-history.html Humor gets us through each day. Jager
  5. Oliver, When I was building my Huskie a few years ago I found technical info was hard to find. I contacted the New England Air Museum in Connecticut. They are located very close to the Kaman factory. The gentleman I talked to was very helpful and supplied me T.O.'s. The T.O.'s were very helpful in gleaning structure and equipment details. I believe there is a stepped aft cabin floor, just inside the clam shells on your build. My Dad was a senior blade tech at Kaman from the HOK days through the early Seasprite days. He had passed away before I built my Huskie....bad timing on my part. Unt
  6. Hello Aftermarket, give us an accurate interior for the Hawk/Testors H43B Huskie. In the 1950's, early 60's, my Dad was a rotor blade technician for Kaman. He worked on the HOK/HUK /Huskie series, Seasprite (blasphemy, no intermeshing rotors) and the rotor-chute programs. I am a bit slow and did not realize, until 20 years ago, that Anton Flettner was the Chief Design Engineer for Kaman Aircraft during that era. I believe Kaman produced the First turbine powered helicopter in the very early 50's. Also Bill Murray, their chief test pilot held the 3rd helicopter license issued, I believe. (http
  7. I have the Schiffer Book, Kaman H43 by Wayne Mutza. Nice find on the Topping Huskie. Dad had aTopping Seasprite that has disappeared. Keep up the continued 'Finder's Luck".
  8. Unfortunately I missed out years ago to get that interior. I believe that is what forced me to fabricate an interior based on T.O.'s the New England Air Museum was gracious enough to send me a copy.

  10. These are my new go to favorites for my old eyes:
  11. Charlie you build looks great. The tail rotor issue is a Revell issue. Our Oklahoma Air Guard unit flies the Lakota. A friend got us a tour and that is where I saw the tail rotor issue with the model. I did a what-if and converted the Lakota to a replacement for the Kiowa. I dubbed it the AH-72 Lakota Warrior. I had a very ill fitting canopy. It was approx. 1.5-2.0mm wide. So I requested a replacement part from Revell, which the supplied in quick fashion, but to too was a bit wide and required some rework to get marginally decent fit. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this
  12. RIP Bob Hoover you were one of the best! Saw Bob many a time starting in the mid-sixty's. His "energy management' demo with the Aero Commander was always good, especially at the bottom of the loop. Found this on You Tube, thought you would enjoy it. Jager
  13. Well Eastern, Your build on the Kiowa has been daily required reading over the past few years. I will use it, on my current and future builds, as a standard which I aspire to build too. I guess the big question now is what is your next build going to be? Rotary wing? Fixed wing? Or are you going rogue and do Sci-Fi? Once again thanks for sharing, in detail, your build on this OH-58.

  14. Thanks for posting this up 11BEE. We need more Real-reality television programs and movies about true heroes. The contrived reality programs are numbing the minds of the viewers. Thanks again for the post. Jager
