It does look good and very realistic when photographed against the skylines. What it needs now is a couple of seats, the instrument panel, and a civilian pilot figure in there to complete the illusion. I am still stuck without being able to work on a thing as my renovation is still an ongoing concern, sigh. Take care.

Yep, some cockpit details and pilot would be the icing on the cake. However I've found this to be a very tail heavy model and it needs the batts upfront in order to balance.... Maybe a future upgrade to 12s will help

What's with the renovations Don?

The bathroom is getting a long overdue make-over that was brought on by the ceiling falling in because of someone not putting the right tub in upstairs and then trying to jury rig it. What a mess. It is a gut right down to the bare studs and then more were added to properly tie in the structure. This was a case of the installers using as few studs as they could in order to maximize profit. I just found out that it will be at least a week and a half before it is finally done as the marble counter has yet to be measured and we have to choose the section of slab it will be cut from. Also, our sink faucet is still not in, sigh. Once done, it will be worthy of Better Homes and Gardens, lol.

I am reading the forums most every day and a couple of times for some. I was talking with GyroMan about the posts in the MH-68A thread and I remarked about the surprise I had seeing both those helicopters used less than 6s for battery power. I also discovered what may be a much better way to mount the T-Rex 600 into the Airwolf that will allow access to install the battery on a platform just ahead of the chassis. Even the chassis will be moved about a half inch or so back to gain more room and it will be raised so that the former does not need to be cut. It should be interesting. Take care.

Hey justy... have you though of putting the cable cutter on your model for that realistic look, the front on pics just look a little bit bare (imo). Otherwise a nice looking fuse, hope mine looks similar when i get to building it. And shouldn't there be an undercarriage landing light?

Cheers

The full size version doesn't have cable cutters...the landing light is working and fitted to the nose, see post #50

Thanks for all the positive comments
