  1. You betcha. Some of my models fly like raw eggs.
  2. Thank you very much, sir. I consider this comment of two such model making champions as accolade.😊
  3. My Skycrane was shown in scale 1:32 at the ROTOR live 2019:
  4. On the left, the plate is cut and fitted over the pipes.
  5. The missing supports are attached to the engines and the housing.
  6. The handles are attached. Only here errors are noticed, which are corrected again. So change the drawing and print it again.

    Italian Forestale Firefighter, Skycrane.

    Ian, the shapes aren't good enough on the surface. Much too much streaks on it. And the proportions of your 3 windows on top of each other at the back are not right. The corners are round everywhere.
  8. I would like to post much more flight pictures and videos. But I always need others who can do that! I am a model builder, I can fly my helicopters. But in both areas (photo + video) I am not good.
  9. Ian, the "good" pictures come later. Yes, I am happy about the result, also that it is finished and will fly. Without your suggestion I would have built this model if not never, then at least much later. Thanks for that. It has become a piece of jewellery.
  10. The mechanics have flown in. The trainer flew with 640 g take-off weight, the complete Skycrane will reach 600 to 620 g depending on the battery. There are still small problems at the rear, but they can be solved. The final assembly has begun. Here first picture:
  11. I imitated the attachments at the front of the engines with a decal. It looks much more professional with Wafu. But our models also serve a different purpose. Here's the other side.
  12. A few more details finished. The tail rotor got color. The oil cooler still got the filter as a decal in the back.
  13. The shorter leaves have now acquired colour.
  14. Ian, it's the home stretch. The mechanics are also ready to fly (there were some problems), after their installation the last details will be added. On 09. and 10.03.19 you can see my Skycrane at the ROTOR 2019 in Iffezheim!
