That's an impressive list John.  I'll check when I get home.  Might be able to help you out with the 135, just can't remember what I have left.

Hi John

 

Might be able to help you out mate.  Let me take a look when I get home.  Perfect timing as I have my BK on the bench at the moment making some snow shoes/plates for the rear of the skids out of allu sheet. As well as fixing a floor issue that was paralyzing my build.

 

Those Hueys look nice, especially the 412, I still hope to convert the Revell kit into one of those one day.

 

Thanks for the inspiration of your marvelous builds!

 

Cheers

Anthony

Hi Anthony,

 

So good to hear from you. Hope all is well down under. 

The Huey's require a lot of work especially detailing and having to scratch build the skids.  The models where rather plain when they made them.  The fuselage is the same and the canopy/nose and doghouse/blades are different for the desired model.  So you have to do some detailing not to mention masking of the canopies.  I did a Huey for a friend some years back.  Totally revamped the interior.

The medevac Huey I did.

I'll try and post pics of the original models what they looked like.

 

Thanks for the help!!!

Yep all Good down here in this part of the world.  Apart from a few more earthquakes!

 

I have some bits for you I think you will like. Will try to get them away before the weekend, but will be Monday (your Sunday) latest next week.

 

I am intrigued by the 412 kit, what scale are they? And yes I would love to see more pics. Especially your Huey build

 

Cheers

Anthony

Here's a 412 and 206L.  The 206 models were made from a Jet Ranger fuselage with a 6L exhaust. The Bell's were 1/30th scale. Old model companies that made these were Topping Models, Rolen Plastics and Precise Models all in Ohio all out of business (OOB).  I was a personal friend of the owner of Precise Models which is how I got my hands on the models.  Back in the day (80's) you could buy a finished display model for like $70-$80. Bell sold them for $400 via. Louis Bull PR (OOB) out of Fort Worth, TX. I kick myself for not buying some back in the day.

Awesome work John, and even better subjects! Great to see these among the endless rows of Blackhawks, Cobra's and Hueys that fill these forums!

The detailing on the BK117, Dauphin and JetRanger cockpits is superb! You're lucky to have the Heller 360. That is a kit I can kick myself for not buying a pile of them when they were stille widely available...:crying:

I see you use the Trumpeter 1:48 AS365N- kit. Have you tried the KH kit yet?

:cheers:

Hi Gertjan

 

So good to hear from you! It's been a while.

Thank you for the kind words.  I scored my Heller 360 Dauphins off of ebay.  Was lucky enough to get it at a real good deal.  There are a lot of kits I wish I would have bought back in the day.  Oh yah. I feel your pain.

 

I've seen the KH Dauphin and it looks far nicer than the (over rated) Trumpeter.  Quite pricey but I hate to say I'm eying the 1/35th Trumpeter.  It too is pricey.  One of these days.

 

Cheers

John

Hi John, finally ready to send your bits, sorry for the delay.  I have included one of my EC-135 blades converted into a more accurate BK-117 blade in case you might want to cast it for future builds.

 

Cheers

John, Great builds as always!  Been away from building rotorcraft for a while.  Just jumped back on the forum here.  Fantastic progress!  One of these days I'll drag my projects out and get something done!  Oh look, a squirrel! :rolleyes:
