TF/SmartModel "500" size EC-145 grey from France

Hello,

Here is a post about the EC-145 for 500 size. Yes my dream comes true now.... i mean in few hours !!!
It is an Eurocopter-Kawasaki EC-145 (BK-117C-2)
Here is some pics about the big real one:




And here is mine out of the box from www.heli-scale.com in france (Smartmodel dealer), I will put a T-rex 500 inside.



First step: Painting inside the fuse for being more realistic at the end:



Build of the landing gear:


First build with fuse and landing gear (not fix at this moment) only for the pics....







to be continued...

I like that paint scheme, it's gonna be a beauty. I think I took a ride in that model heli once (memory lost to say for sure it was a BK, but that's what was buzzing the hospital all the time). Popular medivac chopper around here.

Thanks Minibichus...
here is next steps :


epoxy, wait, epoxy, wait...epoxy...tap tap tap...


Glue of the main frame for meca..




A small thing, I changed the colors delivered in black for Aluminium ( scratching the paint) because the original got a grey landing skid and not a black.


The upper fuse part for the swashplate



It's nice , I like it !

Epoxy , wait, epoxy, wait ..

Epoxy , wait, epoxy, wait ..


Ah Ahhhhhhh.... buiolding the main former frame...and Epoxy , wait, epoxy, wait ..
...









Here is the result.... muhmmmm looks good no ??

See you

seb, your landing gear struts are reversed. The shorter strut goes aft and the longer one goes forward. The EC-145 sits nose high and tail down. I believe it was designed this way to make loading and unloading stretchers and cargo easier.


Your "Silver Bullet" is looking fine.
