Thanks Mark, I hope it turns out the way I see it in my head :angry-steamingears:

I asked Casper has I don't think I would have enough time to finish it, got this week off but house work needs doing and as I didn't have much Christmas time I'm trying to catch up with mates. There's only a come weekends left so I thought it would be a push to finish it in time.

So I've managed to do a bit more today, but first I forgot to show that I had added the drive shafts that run inside the exhaust system.
Image

I've had a bit of a day with this broke one of the undercharge systems :angry-banghead: so replaced with some brass rods.
Image

Also managed to break off two main blades while I was trying to work out the rear holding arms, so out with the :superlglue: and refit them :angry-banghead:

So this is how she looks at the moment.
Image

The side doors and front canopy where just laid in place to check the weight, as this is now tail heavy with all the extra bits.

The supports are as close as I'm going to get them, there not correct but this was my third attempt at trying to make them.
Image

Drilled out some of the holes on the side and will be adding some mesh to the cut out on the tail section just below the blades.

Oh yes the cut line in the front engine case is because once these are lowered into the open position they will have a slight angle, the little bit at the bottom sits against the helicopters body while the rest of the cover comes out at a 90deg angle.

So I've cut a groove into the front in order to allow me to bend them. Hope that make sense :think:

Cheers Mark, I'm not 100% sure about the white piece on the support beams.

Might have to have a re :think: about them.

So I've redone them.

Here's some more photos, all I can say is if it's not grey it's been added. ;)

Added some brass to the rear.
Image

The brass pin will be for the ariel system, the one lower down is a pipe. The white piece no idea.
Image

Same as above.
Image

Added a little piece to the top of the fin.
Image

Just to show its still a 1/72 model. ;)
Image

Think I need to go to the asylum now ;)

Thanks Steve.

Done all the upgrades I can think of.

Added a unit to the rear.
Image

A small shark fin, this was a fin of a missile in my spare's box.
Image

Front ariel system. This was made from a piece of plastic sprue.
Image

I've removed the two upright ariel until I've painted the model.

So with all that done, onto the last bits like adding the windows and doors.

The first side fitted fine :) but the second one well :angry-banghead:
Image

So while trying to sort this out I had a bit of a :o :o :angry-banghead: :angry-banghead: while trying to sort the door and roof section I managed to do this :( :(
Image

Ripped all the roof section off :oops: :oops:

Image

The door was then sorted, the filler looks bad but it's been sanded and redone so all is ok.
Image

Then I had to refit all the parts I ripped off.
Image

The next update will be once it's been painted.

My daughter has just pointed out to me that you have pulled this build from the comp and move it. It is a shame, but I do fully agree that you should not rush it if you feel that you need more time to build it. What I can see, so far you have done an excellent job and I must remember to follow this build.

If by any means you do happen to finish the build by the end of the month, I sure that it will be OK for you to still enter it in the comp. You've certainly raised the bar this year with this build.

Hi Roy thanks for the nice comments ;)

I asked for it to removed as I wasn't sure about the time it would take to complete, but I've managed to get most of this completed in the last couple of days. It's all primer'd and awaiting a top coat of orange the main rotor system is done and painted.

If I manage to get this completed before the time runs out then yes I will re-enter it, I only ask for it to moved as I now Mark locks the builds off. And if I hadn't finished in time I would be able to update the diary, but I'm sure Mark would have sorted something out ;)

So thank you for allowing me to re-enter this if I can complete it in time ;)

So I've primer'd the model and started painting, simple colour scheme white underneath and orange top.

Image

Another small mod I've done was to add some detail to the inside of the engine covers. I've only given it a light coat to see what the colour would look like, I'm happy with the colour so another coat tomorrow.

This build is awesome and I'm please to hear that there might be a possibility that you might just finish it in time to enter it into the comp.
