  1. Originally the same color green as the Canadian Starfighters, later some color they found in a paint store in town... no lies!

    1/48 X-29 from Freedom model F-20

    Find a Kinetic F-5A, and work from there, so front end from the F-5, arse from the F-20, and landing gear from an F-16?. My math isn't woking but you could cheat... lol Cheers H.

    WANTED: 1/48 UH-1D Main Rotor shaft/blades.

    AirMedical (Hey, you a pilot? EC145??) Anyway, I have a UH-1D kit, Italeri that I won't finish, it has the rotor in it, But I am in Canada, and at work, so won't be able to send after 1 May, but you can have it for the shipping cost, If I can find it. Cheers Harald (EC135P2+ guy)
  6. So, I like the Flory Videos, but I cringe at the technical knowledge. Being a pilot of whirly-choppers it's hard to hear terms like "foot-Window" or crash seat, particularly when it's interspersed with "Swash Plate" etc... kinda funny. I'd be happy to give a course in nomenclature... On the other hand, what a stunner of a kit... I have a few of the KH models, and now I want more!! Cheers H.

  8. Th 300 CB had the same small triangular fin. The main rotor lead/lag dampeners were stacked bent washers, but was changed to an elastomeric dampener in the 300 CB, and those were retrofitted around the fleet. I have almost 1900 hours in the 300 series...
  9. I'm an idiont... Never mind.

    500 Robertson MH-012 "T" Tank"

    That "T" tank with seats... the back of a 500 is not a comfortable ride on any given day, but on THAT thing?? lol even worse. You can LEGALLY fit 7 (SEVEN) people in the the 500C, I doubt it'd get off the ground, but legally you could. 4 in the back, head to head, 2 forwards and 2 backwards. and also squeeze in 3 in the front, hence the left side PIC. And the max weight is 200 less than the 206A...
  12. I'd throw a "like" on your comment, but there is none, so... "Like!" lol. Cheers Harald
  13. @BillS top notch info! One of my top peeves is the seatbelts displayed all dragged out. Inertia reels are real! lol. Those Fine Molds belts though... Oh they are nice.
  14. Hi there! This is an image I found at the Ejectionsite, it shows the strap quite dark, but it is there. Northrop Norair seat As far as intakes, I DO believe Phasehangar resin are doing some. I could be mistaken.
  15. And with regards to the seat, if I may? The seat has a strap that runs in the middle of the back, it is known as a "Seat Kicker" or Seat/Man sepparator, and it is green. Any type of olive drab/green works. It goes into a Y but that is below the seat pan. Regards Harald
