Hi everyone.

 

I need feedback from you guys in order to move forward producing  this.

This is a conversion from the Wessex helicopter  from FLY Models in 1/32 that i am trying to make it with the help of someone else.  I am trying to decide on the cost and the interest of this conversion. 

I am either doing a single nose with the mesh or  a 2 door version with the engine backwall. I just found out that Vector resin has an engine for the H.34 in 1/32 scale. 

I know the H.34 only exists in 1/48 scale and this will be the only option in a larger scale. Please , let me hear your comments.

I am only doing the nose.

I’m not an SME, are there any other differences between these two versions?   I’d love an H-34 in 32nd.  Decals might be an issue....

One of the big ones is the exhaust, US H-34 only have one of two types on the port side only if looking top down. Windows can be another difference. Choice of landing gear for timeframe. Just off the top of my head.

Just the doors only won't cut it.  The whole nose needs to be redone from just below the middle of the pilots' doors.  The line forward of the door where the grey filler is present below.  Everything forward of this line needs to be redone to backdated it to an H-34.

The Fly Models Wessex nose is longer to accommodate the turbine engine.  Compare the pics above in Oliver's post to an actual H-34.

A. How much

B. What 1/32 kit is available?

Dont know price yet. Debating on two door unit or one single nose piece. It has to do with cost.
