I bought this Williams Bros pilot many years ago but he just wasn't good looking enough for me to stick him in a plane. I didn't like the helmet or the whole look. But after looking at some pics I think I can use him in the 119. I also ordered some more, at $2.65 each it's hard to go wrong. He needs some work but at this 1/12th scale he might look OK.
I'll be finishing the cockpit AFTER painting. I think that is a first for me. But the whole canopy coming off lends itself to that.
The antennas are finished. It has one going to each vertical and then a short one along the top of the fuse. It seems that each different gunship I look at had different antenna arrays. They all retract into the fuse for transport.
Next I have to work on the wing saddle and then it's ready to be sanded down for paint.
