A little time was set aside to work on the Hind. Put Dr. Dremel to work opening two holes in the turbine cover for exhaust pipes that will be scratch built. I also reworked the main landing gear struts as the springs were too robust to compress at all with the weight of the completed model. I removed the springs and inserted a short piece of styrene rod the allows the LG to compress and leave the model with the toe out look that the full size Hind displays. Just a personal preference item for me.

Cheers - Boyd

Hi Fabien,

Of course, I want to see the 5-bladed version!
