AS350 Weapon Coming Soon 3D Printed

This prototype of AS350 weapon set is going to be printed by 3D printer. This one is the latest scale accessories which I am drawing recently except the whole set of Harrier cockpit.

Not related to the AS350 but would something like the belwo be viable to be 3D printed?

It's too bad that the AS350 body kit I have has two different doors on it. I have seen the weapons system mounted only on the short door and not through the long sliding door even though mounting it fixes the door in place on the full size helicopter. The mounting system on the Century TOW missile and rocket launcher would make it possible to change systems for different looks and allow mixed weapons systems to be carried. See if you can do that as I would get my distributor to look into bringing a rocket tube system in for my 600 TOW Defender. Future release would be just fine. The TOW sight that I just got in will be installed over the next month or so just in time for Helicopter Scale Masters in Sacramento, CA. Take care.

PS: I just noticed on that picture that the Fennec has two sliding doors and not the short rear doors. I guess that once you decide to mount the system, it matters little what doors are in place as you must cut the holes anyway and that fixes the doors in place. There is also a weapon sight system that would be a nice add-on to help convert the machinegun version to a Hellfire missile carrying version. More food for thought.

You are right that Century Tow has more choices but for AS350, it has limitations. It need some work if want to install the missile and rocket, it is my test product and I am thinking of making it for 600 size and 700 size fuses. I will see what I can do when the first 3D printed products are done.
