  1. It's not electric trim, it's done by the flight control comuter, and your only input is to lock them by turning the system off. So whether you want it to be or not, it is FLY BY WIRE, now as I said before it's not an entire system, it's the horizontal stab only. but again it IS FBW. modest as it is. and though I don't have 35 years, I got 23, so I should be ok, 4 years on the 214ST, a few on the 212, some on the 135 . The 214ST is THE smoothest helicopter I've flown, and it'd cruise 5 kts below VNe all day long. 155KIAS.
  2. Still it's considered FBW. It controls the pitch to maintain a level cabin at all speeds and all CG's, works real well. Obviously when you flare etc the nose will pitch up and down. I flew it for years.
  3. the Bell 214ST had Fly By Wire too, not the entire control system, but partially. it worked very well. And was at least 10 years before the NH-90... Also the NH-90 is WILDLY unavailable to most if not all users...
  4. The blades are manufactured by Sikorsky, or a sub-contractor. The most popular aftermarket blades for S-61 Helicopters are made by Carson, but they are recognized by downswept tips and red and white paint on top. Obviously not available for the H-60 series.
  5. the rear landing gear bays are incorrect, and I've heard that the some of the weapons are incorrect, but I don't know that for a fact.
  6. via Gmail, and it is actually 4 different sets, nigelsmodellingbench @ gmail.com (remove the spaces) Cheers H.
  7. You CAN assemble both levels, but tough to see behind the Radar Nav console... I have it, and I have started cleaning up the resin. Lots of resin... I too wish there was some form of fuselage section for it. It's unbelievably huge! Oh and it'd be a stretch to model Slim Pickens' plane. This is a fairly recent mod H, with Gunner controls removed, but prior to the latest modernizations, Possibly somewhere in the early 2000's is where this kit is. Superb details, Anyz could make it even better!
  8. Hope someone will help edit the Imgur link, Obviosuly I've become old, as I can't seem to figure that out. It doesn't work as before.
  9. So Model Collect's research team seem to have been not paying attention in class leading to a couple of small errors, that if not corrected will leave some fairly visible errors if you will. There are 3 glaring errors and 8 smaller errors that these particular sets will correct. The first problem we encounter, it the nose shape. There is a fairly large thread on here that discusses this issue, and this correction was a direct result of that. I wasn't originally going to get it, as I had convinced myself that it was "good enough" as it was corrected by MC. I changed my m
  10. Double article, please delete
  11. I wish someone would come out with AGM 28 Pylons and missiles...
  12. if you look on the videos, his email is posted
  13. I'd put a like on your pictures, but there is no like... so """"LIKE""""
  14. rotor goes the wrong way, otherwise a superb rendition of an H-19A
  15. Very nice representation of a super difficult model!
