I did use Tamiya for the CH-139 but there was an in-compatibility with the primer. I am going with custom automotive paint that will be put in a rattle can this time around and then using a flat clear for the MH-6 and a semi-gloss for the new CH-139. Good luck with yours.

Here is where I am now. Wondering about running the light to the top of the vertical tail and being able to keep the wire hidden

You need to be very careful when installing the wires. Your best plan of attack is to feed a set of wires down from the top to a hole made in the area that will be covered by the tail cone area. It is balsa under the layer of glass so be careful when doing final installation as to not crush the wood. It will take a lot of patience to feed the wires but you can do it. I used a 5mm red LED that I attached to the wires after feeding. I have the crimper and wire tools to make new ends so I did that after getting the wire and LED in place. Use canopy glue to hold the LED in place which will make future work a lot easier. Also use the same glue to fix the red lens to the top of the tail. If the pictures are not in this thread, they are in the original Jet Ranger build I did. Have fun.

PS: You can see the various landing gear that I had JestRR make for these projects of mine. He can rarely be found outside the ScaleRCHelis.com forum but it is worth popping on there and looking him up as he makes them around this time of the year. He didn't make the full length steel skids for my CH-139, I did, but if you are thinking about those, he might be coerced into make them, lol.
