Looks good. Let him know to move the skids forward when time comes to secure them so that the rear tips maybe about 3/8 to 1/2" behind the skid. I see a large number of MD500's that have the skids placed back that far because the builders think they need it that far behind for balance. There's lots of skid behind the CG and if there is a real concern, a set of bearpaws added will get the additional surface behind the gear leg and add a really nice custom touch to it. ProHeli and Vario make those for skids of many sizes. He will really like the quality of the Century body. Take care.
