    1/35 UH-1A

    Hello Chris, OOOOOOOOOOh,so you have already done this conversion?!, Very interesting! Have you published an article on the forum, and if so do you have a link? I will be very interested to see pictures of your work. I agree with you, the Seminar seats are ridiculous and had to be rebuilt in scratch. The conversion seems feasible but four points worry me: The rotor head To reduce the "pre-coning" I see no other way than incise the hub and reduce the angle but I'm afraid of weakening the rotor head and it can no longer resist to the weight of blades The blades of the main rotor. Except error on my part, on the UH-1A, the chord of the blades is 15 in or, 30.1 cm = 1.08 cm in 1/35 ...... the blades of the kit have a chord of 18.2mm ! if I reduce the blades of the kit I will lose all the reinforcements engraved on the blades and I do not know how to reproduce them. The right lower aft compartment door (just in front of the tailboom) is louvered How to reproduce these slots? In 1:35 you can not just engraved them, you have to really open the slots and cross the fuselage, how did you reproduce that? The seats Their shape seems easy to reproduce but I have no dimension and I'm afraid to be wrong in simply estimating their size after a photo I am very interested to know what solutions you have found to these problems In advance, thank you for your help Patrick PS : Sorry for my poor English, I hope you can understand me................

    1/35 UH-1A

    Hello friends, Huey specialist I need your help ... Ray are you there? I have in my stash a kit of the 1/35 Seminar UH-1C. As everyone knows, Seminar did not do his homework well and this kit is unusable to represent a C The rotor of the kit is a UH-1B rotor and although a new vertical stabilizer with wide chord is provided in the kit, it does not have the cambered profile of the UH-1C. Of course, I will not throw this kit in the trash bin but I plan to to convert it to a UH-1A ambulance in 1962 in Vietnam I already know that it will be necessary to modify : Use the empennage of the UH-1B fortunately still present on the sprues of the kit Shorten the length of the main rotor mast Reduce the chord of the main rotor blades (15 in) Correct the length of the blades to respect the diameter of the rotor (43ft 9in) Move the counterweights under the rotor head at the axis of the rotor blades Redo the weights on the stabilizer bar different on an A Ammo falls exited forward fuselage instead of the rear like B and C models Install the pitot tube on the nose Install FM antennas on the nose Install unarmored seats Scratch build stretcher and medical equipment The fuel tank cap is already engraved on the right side of the fuselage What have I forgot? Any help and advice will be greatly appreciated thank you in advance Patrick

    What are your top 5 dream model kits?

    Hello friends, Here is a totally different proposition: bush planes equipped with bush wheels, vortex generators and other accessories 1) Maule M7 2) Cessna 185 3) Cessna 172 4) Carbon Cub 5) PZL Draco. A heavily modified Wilga build by Mike Patey. I fell in love at first sight with this aircraft Infinite possibilities of dioramas on the tarmac, on the sand, on the snow, on the grass, on the water, opportunities iiiiiifinie possibilities

    What are your top 5 dream model kits?

    Hi Bo, No, I never flew on these helicopters. I have a PPL license but I only flew on planes. At fifteen I made my first solo on a Piper Cub J3, then I flew on Jodel 112, Jodel 120, and Morane Rallye. Flying on helicopters has always been a dream for me but it was far too expensive. I flew twice as a squirrel passenger, an hour on an MD500E and, my best flight, half an hour over New York on the front left seat on a Long Ranger So I flew RC helicopters. My first was the Schluter DS22 inspired by an Enstromm helicopter Sorry for my poor english Greetings from France and by the way, Happy New Year !!!!!!!
