The tail is shown with ply for fit to frame.

The tail seciton, a pain in the arse, with cover now installed. I did not convert it to 4 blade yet, I will do this at the VERY last. The mechanics with the supplied CF frame from JFRUGE, and CNC motor mount. Notice the brackets I had made for the very bottom, those hold the assembley to the heli.

In the picure with the shaft, you see how I reinforced the shaft with epoxy coated wood. This was VERY ahrd to do, as the space is VERY limited.

The last pic should be the mid section of the connection between tail housing and main housing of the Century body. I used a little Bondo to make this perfect, or as close as my patience would allow, not to bad.

I am painting tongiht, so pics tomora of the pianted body.
I reluctantly went with US Coast Guard theme, per the wife...=). I couldn't fint myself to paint this beautiful heli a lame flat black, or borring sea king/navy grey.
