Hi Oliver, 

Just tell me, how could we miss that topic? 

That's about your exhaust supports. There is nice pics with detailed mount scheme. Still hope you will remake it, if you find that your scheme is wrong of course.

Painted the tail red on my test helo. Too overpowering so keep grey and look a cool decal. Remaking Flir and adding clear resin for glass.

Isn't there one paint scheme that has a blue tail?  I think that would look great with this.

Do a search for HSC-23 Wild Cards or HSC-26 Chargers.  Both had a few blue tails.

Thanks Tgoetz for the info on the tail.

Heres the finished Flir.

I used clear resin to simulate the glass.

Yeah i agree its cool looking but who makes the decals for it? I am also concerned that blue is too dark and create a dark spot when looking at the dio.

HI Oliver, 

Why don't you made a decal yourself? If you need I can draw It in coreldraw for you. I'm sure, there is some guys California who can print it on decal paper with ALPS printer that can print white color. I've made all decals by myself for my uh-1.

I don't like the red cowling cover on the front.  Other than that I think it would look great.

i am about to glue the clear parts and I see that the front windshield is not a super fit. I know some of you already have built  the Hawk with the same windshield so my question is" bottom side windows first or windshield first. ?  thanks

windshield first, you will need to force a little the alignment (do not forget to future it before)
