  1. Like many I suspect the COVID pandemic has given me a little time on the workbench. The interior is done with the exception of the the door mounted gun and .50 cal that can both be put in place at the end of the build. So, I turned my attention to the main rotor, which needs a lot a work. I feel the main rotor is a focal point of helicopter models since it's the first thing you see when you look down on it. Out of the box with work it might be okay, but I just couldn't live with it. Here is the real thing. Here is what the out of the box gives you. And here is what I have so far. I still have a ways to go, but the Starflex hub turned out a lot better than I thought it would. I think the upper and lower sleeves (think that's what they are called) need to be thinned a little. I also need to confirm my plan to attached the rotor blades will work. Thanks for dropping by and hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Todd
  2. Outstanding in any scale, but 1/72...just wow! Thanks for sharing.
  3. I'm all in with this. Hope they can pull it off.
  4. There's more lumps and bumps on that thing than a...I better censor that. But I like it.
  5. I think we all get this all too well. I still can't believe I started this build four years ago. Although, with the interior done and the doors just needing paint, I'm hoping the rest will go a little quicker. At this rate, I'll have to live until I'm 180 to finish just half of my stash.
  6. Thanks Spirit, I was hoping you would chime in with the correct information. Did you finish you build?
  7. Congratulations Oliver and thanks for allowing us to follow along. It's been a fantastic show. Can't wait to see the next project. Todd
  8. What else can be said about this. I'm at the just sit and drool stage. Thanks for sharing.
  9. Fireball Modelworks (Joseph Osborn) did both the resin and decals for the 1/48 kit. He is no longer offering the set. Caracel Models offers a decal sheet for the 1/35 kit that is excellent.
  10. Nice work Hajo. Looking forward to more pictures. Where did you get the weapons. They look aftermarket.
  11. If you are referring to the window on the co-pilot side just in front of the cockpit. Best I can tell on the C model they turned the front half of the window into a battery compartment door. Not sure if they relocated the batteries, or just added the door for easier access. On the A and B models they had to open the radome to access the batteries.
  12. It's an air sensor that was removed somewhere between the C and D upgrades. All the A's and B's have them, some of the C's and none of the D's. All the C's eventually have them removed. I going to include it on mine, just because I think it looks cool.
  13. HAJO, I recently stumbled upon this website with several impressive walkarounds on it. There are three of the MH-65, two of the Charlie and one of the Delta. There are several of the search light. http://svsm.org/gallery/mh65c
  14. I can't believe the pods were used much. Great concept, but functionally and operationally not very useful. But I it would make a cool build for the office, with a row of pods. One for trauma patients, one for cardiac patients and one for pediatrics. Didn't one of the pilots sit facing the rear and could fly the helicopter when picking up sling loads?
