Hi Kin,

OK I will let go the flex cable and will make a bell crank to overcome the 70 degree angle and I will need that left hand pitch control arm than from you.

I will contact you when all your products are ready.

And as you may understand I put the hole belt option on stop.

Maybe I will be the first In Holland who use your new tail gear concept.

I will mail you,

Regards,

Jan,

Hello all,

Kin I keep some space in the cockpit.

I put the tail build aside and wend further with some teeth for my Apache.

I have purchased the Hellfire kit from smart models and its a great adon for this baby.


Assembling the rockets gos fast but gluing the tiny front wings with CA glue are tricky because I have several times glued my fingers to the rocket instead of the fin ..

But they are nice and it gives a impression how big this Apache are.



Here the painted Rocket and Hellfire pods, I have added some details (not true scale) just looking good.


Here the Gun and its components,



All coming together nice,

By the way how do you guys like my workbench,



This always the case when I'm going for it, and still able to find my tools also (at least most of the time)

Will be back,

Kind regards,

Jan,

Hi All,

Screwing the tail with just a few screws don't feel well so I reinforced the tail and ad two M3 nuts you use in the firewall of a model air plane to hold your engine,



And I have ad e wooden support in the tail to support the stabiliser wing,



And Kin,

There a lot of room here for your pilots



Making a cockpit will be a lot of work but will add very much to the Apache

Regards,

Jan,

Hello,

This build report was not visible anymore it was moved below page 2
Besides that.

I put in the thin plastic sheets for the cockpit widows and it look nice now.

And I start to dismantle my already installed wooden support frame because I want to use the new direct tail driven unit from Kin and then I'm also able to bank the mechanics 4 degree forwards to meet a more scale look and behavior in flight. Doing this, then I need a new support frame.

Regards,

Jan,

Hello Kiwi1,

The Kit comes from Smartmodel but now days sold by TFmodels and the light set comes from Hobbyking.

I have added the night vision Gun sight etc and air intake filters for the engine's,





The Cockpit,






And the air intake's filters,






Its a little work but it pays off a lot

Hello all,

I'm considering to put in my bird a four bladed head and I'm stumbling to this one, its not that expensive and on stock.



Its a Copter X head but I can not find for so far any reviews of it.
So my question are will it perform well or not.

My intentian are to run it with a Skookum 360 first and go later to a Skookum 720 or Helicommand Rigid when the Apache are finished because of there bailout functions what the 360 not have. (I have a 360 already)

I want to fly the mechanics first without the body with the new tail driven unit from Kin and after thats works OK I want to go for the fourblades head and tail.
So I'm orientating what to do.

So I can use some advise with this one

Kind regards,

Jan,
