This most likely will be a Malaysian bird with floats if I am in the mood to scratch build it. If not it will be with its gear.

Thanks n happy Modelling

Cheers Martin....but most likely it will be on its gear.....for now....

I made a start........done some work on the rear bulkhead sanded off the molded seats and put plastic card ....same with the bench seat......

Also did some generic details on the side walls of the side doors.....

A little bit of fine sanding and then a lick of paint. Started on the front seats.....I am going to modify and use some resin ones which I did not use in my Pilatus pc-7

Then the roof work.....

Happy Modelling Folks

Thanks a lot for the nice comments guys....much obliged

Got some work done....The current state of affairs

I changed the stick and pedal layout....due to this picture

The control activity looks centered around the middle seat

Drilled out the panels....now to find a fine enough file to smooth it all off

Overhead panel all done and dry brushed

Test fitting makes it look busy as what I wanted to achieve just need to trim the wires

Next will be the panel and maybe can close it up by weekends

Happy Modelling

Thanks a lot for the motivation guys

But disaster struck ! Big time.....unable to selvage it and lost motivation.....thus with a heavy heart I am withdrawing from this build form the group build.

The last bit after the clamps cracked the joints while putting the roof on

If I can find another chopper which I like to build now...I'll restart....

Sorry folks

I tried....but it's a lost cause....it's gone to helicopter heaven....via the trash can.....the roof, top windows and side just did not mate up well.....

First kit binned after many many years.

Am out...no more selvage as it is ripped to pieces
