Just a very small update tonight. I got the pedals installed so that I could actually show off the heli at a couple of local shops. I was out today to get some paints or tape so I could mark out the head like its full size counterpart. They are colour coded for assembly and adjustments so nothing like taking a page out of their book. I used the same code as one I found (E model refurbished head) but since this does not rotate counterclockwise, I reversed the order of the coding so that what ever the master blade colour is, the next one is the right one. I could not get over the fact that three shops (and a fourth that is mostly for cars) had no green pinstripe tape!! What's with that??? Oh well, Humbrol, Testors, and Tamiya to the rescue. Take care.


PS: The blades are coded to the grip they are set in and the crew is screwed in place. Not pretty, LOL.
