Boomer686 How was the kit quality?
13. January at 23:15:09
Jon Fincher The kit quality was great, and everything fit well. It comes with masks for the canopy, which made painting very easy. It was my first try at a freehand camo paint job, and the size made it fun to do. It's an impressive model when it's done - it's half a meter long when done, and the rotor is 10 cm longer (about 18-20 inches)

There were three issues I had: The interior is a little sparse for the scale - if you display it with the aft cargo doors open, you'll want to add something else. The pilot/co-pilot fans on the instrument panel were a little finicky to create - the photo-etch blades needed to be twisted, and I wound up shooting one somewhere in my workspace (I never did find it).

The worst for me, however, were the rotor blades - at 30cm long, they are waaaay too heavy for the mounting hardware. After they broke for the umpteenth time, I wound up flooding the joint between each blade and the rotor housing with 5-minute epoxy. It helped for a while, but they still broke when I moved the model.

In the end, after displaying it at a few shows, losing pitot tubes and other greeblies from the moves, and constantly broken rotor blades, I had enough. It was too big for my display space, and taking up storage space in my workshop, so I finally (gasp!) binned it.
