Felix Troschier Robertas, What do you think about dimensions/shape/proportions?

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.

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!

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.

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...

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!

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

Glenn . 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???
