  • helios16v changed the title to TH-55a/Hughes 300 Eggcopter

Mock up.  Now to work on masking off the eggpit.  This is definitely one of the trickier eggplanes I've built.  I think I'm going to call it for the night so I can let the cockpit floor dry fully.  I'd hate to shake it loose and have to split the egg open again to fix it.

How did you do in the race, Chris? 

 

30 minute race, not so great finished 22nd, started 21st.  Ran out of gas coming off the last corner.  Ended up losing a spot as it sputtered across the line.  60 minute race I actually moved forward a bit.  Dodged some carnage and picked my way up to 17th at the end.  There are some seriously fast guys running in that league.

And done.  Opted not to use the decals...we'll just call it a civilian chopper.  All the military ones of these were trainers...so would've been painted in brighter colors...probably more like what's on the box top.
