Nice project, Nils! I will follow this one closely: I have a pile of Ecureuils/ A- Stars that I would love to build into twin stars. Too bad there is no aftermarket option for this.

Robertas, What do you think about dimensions/shape/proportions?
8. July 2015, 11:10
Glenn .
Felix, It's O.K. but just! the Clear parts are rough (Hey Mach 2 Guys can you please POLISH YOUR DIE/MOULD better before shooting plastic through them!) the rotor head is basic. The Landing skids look a bit too thick. Overall it's Mach 2's usual standard. I wish Italeri or Revell would do one. Everything Mach 2 do looks like rough resin and needs cleaning up and clear parts need polishing or replacing. But it does look like a Squirrel. Having said that they do do some interesting subjects that other companies have overlooked! :)

Robertas Vasiliauskas
Yes, Glenn is right.. Very small chance what Pavla, or other maker, make new vacu clear part.
8. July 2015, 12:00
Glenn .
Robertas, I brought the Aussie Navy one. I hope i can make a decent model out of it. I also have a couple of resin ones but i see problems with those too! :( Good Luck with yours!
8. July 2015, 12:41
Robertas Vasiliauskas
All three models, inside have same details and extra big water tank (for next AS.350 Bombardeur kit ?). Also I have Miku kits, this problematic too.
8. July 2015, 12:51
Felix Troschier
thx for your comments. The first sprue shots I saw at Jadar Hobby reminded me somehow of the messed up dimensions and shape of ther Ecureuil-like caricature done once by Miku...
8. July 2015, 17:02
Glenn .
Felix, I'd say the profile of the Mach 2 kit looks a little better, But it will be a lot of work to make it look really good. I'm thinking i might use parts of the Miku kit and combine the best of both kits but, it's a long way down my bucket list.
Robertas is right if Pavla could make vac form windscreens that would help fix it a lot!

Boys, I have AS.350/355 drawings for Aviation News 03/1991 (Warpaint). I can send scan.

Thanks Robertas, I'm pretty sure i have them too, In my large pile of aircraft mags stashed away. I never throw away any aircraft mags i buy. But i think this kit will sit on the pile for a very long time... Maybe someone else will do a better one one day???

Yes!!, it's very realistic job, in civil aviation I didn't saw something similar. Very accurate work!

Yep, the paint sheme is very atractive.
Some close up pictures would be great.
From distance it looks good so far!

Have a look here :

Rather a functional toy than a model. Defenitely not related to Heller

As stated on the IPMS- review, the kit is based on the earlier Ecureuil versions of Heller. Careful study of the sprues reveal some surprises though, the main one being the fact that Heller actually changed the fuselage halves. They added an extra dorsal part to the tail bumper but also changed the surface structure on the engine compartment. The horizontal protrusions that were there on the earlier versions are gone and the overall shape of the engine compartment above the exhaust is changed too. Extra parts on the sprue are the long extra steps for on the landing gear. Heller instructs the modeller to glue these to the gear that's supplied in the box but that is wrong: the real life- landing gear with the extra step is substantially higher than the gear that's in the kit. The gear in the kit though is similar to the (probably due to weight considerations very basic) landing gear on the record breaking Ecureuil, so no worries there.
Other extras are parts that make up a 350B3- type exhaust.
The basic rotor head, the basic interior and the wrong instrument console have stayed and imho that's a missed chance for Heller.

Update: just discovered that the still current Heller Bombardier d'eau- AS350 now also has the updated fuselage halves.

Ecureuil? 1:72? Heller? Never heard of this one! Could this be a typo?
