Having finally got hold of a SARO Skeeter kit, many thanks to John at Aeroclub and some further info regarding 814, thanks Aeronut, I can start contemplating building.

However this has given me the KUTA to finish the D&T Sioux seen on the right of the photo.

so there might be a bit of a gap to the first update.

If you need any info I've got a copy of the manual for the Skeeter.

Thats great news. Any drawings of the engine bay framework would be brilliant.

I'm determined to finish the Sioux before starting the Skeeter, but I am already starting to plan what plastic to cut and what bits to make.

I've a couple of unbuilt Aeroclub Skeeters and I've always fancied building a 35th Skeeter as part of a diorama but no found a round toit yet, anyway heres the drawings.

All the best

Thanks for that Steve. The info is great, a good starting point for working out the build.

I'm looking to do a large scale version as a first full scratch build in the future.

It makes a nice little kit. It's worth removing the engine grill and scratching the gearbox and struts as the grills seem to have been removed in service. I found the decals a bit tricky to use so it may be best to use aftermarket.

thanks, You made a very nice model. I intend to scratch top and bottom of the engine bay. AAC versions did not have covers on. The belts on the side were the main drive from the engine to the main rotor gearbox.
