Thanks guys

Just at the moment I have a friend making me up some teeny tiny cockpit stenciling and placards. Once I get them and on the centre consul I will post pics.

Cheers guys

Hi Niek, yes mate I am! But the weather is nice and I have been busy working down at the hangar on my Auster T7. It has been perfect weather for spraypainting the 2 pack paint I am using and don't want to miss such good opportunities.

The BK is back off the shelf of doom and I did some more on her last month. Got some black/grey sprayed on some parts and got the stenciling on the centre consul.

Not much but I plan on only working on stalled projects this year! I hope........

Cheers

You have no idea how happy I am to see you back here! Hope all goes well with your side project, let me know when you've got it in flying condition ;)

How did you add all the switches to your instrument panel and consoles?

Oh wow, thanks guys!!!

I appreciate all of your comments, it truly means a lot from each one of you.

Niek the switches were done with stretched sprue and some are in the 'on' and some 'off' position as per pics.

Like I say, I am busy at the hangar whilst the weather is playing ball, but rest assured the BK is getting some love again!

Cheers and thanks again guys

Anthony

They just took delivery of their new H-145!! (photo courtesy of the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust Facebook page)

So I went and brought one of these...

Hmmm, I think I might have gotten the drive finally to work on this Bk-117 again!

Thanks very much, it's nice to know this build was missed!  That in itself spurs me on

 

Cheers Anthony

Ah great, welcome back Anthony! Can't wait to see the build continue!

Tricky question: have you got the H145 build planned already?

:cheers:
