Thanks Giorgio, Adrian, Roger, Bill and Steve - kind of you all :) 

 

In the RFI now:

 

More cursing this morning fitting the final PE - the main step:

Pilot's step and pitot:

Note the tiny whisker above the pitot.

Can you see it?

I know…

 

During the RFI shots she developed a blade droop.

hendie was right - even the Araldite wasn't enough.

My bodge is to support the droopy blades and squidge some CA in the rotor head:

Will that work?

Hopefully, fingers crossed :fingerscrossed:

Beautiful finish.

Hope you get the droop sorted.

The CA world, thankfully.

Now in the cabinet with the other choppers:

Looking forward to big beasts getting built!

 

this looks fantastic, a really nice finish, and that rotor head looks the business.

Not on the ceiling, taking space in the cabinet and all 'interesting' builds.

We all know who to blame don't we :D

Thanks Rob :)

I blame you, partly, for making me envious with your great build of the Airfix kit. I hope I can get close to your great result.

 

 

Thanks to everyone as usual for their support, wisdom and companionship during this one.

 

On to the next:

TWO Revell Fortresses.

Oh joy…

Terrific build, Ced.  Really enjoyed following this and the result is a tribute to your perseverance.

Thanks Andy :) 

Perseverance or stubbornness, not sure which!

The printer acquisition has brought the restart of my Sea King infinitesimally closer, since I think it’s the most likely solution to the rotor head challenge.  But don’t get excited yet; 2 P-51s, a P-38 and an aircraft carrier to do first...

I simply cannot imagine why...

Thanks chaps! :) 

 

Crisp do let us know how you're getting on with the printer.

If the software and design process is within the capabilities of normal man I may be further tempted…

No worries John, I just assumed that was the problem - or that your vocabulary was wider than mine! :D
