1/6th scale EC-130

this is my work in progress scratch build EC-130. i drew it up in solidworks and had the plug CNC cut. now i have the plug covered in Fiberglas and i am sanding it smooth. the heli will have custom mechanics and rotorhead so that the entire interior can be modeled.

Looks really nice! The 130/135 are among my favorite helicopters. For the tail rotor, will it be custom or one of the available models?

I will be watching with interest.

thanks, will probably be starting a build thread on here soon, i have one at scalerchelis.com already. the main rotor will be custom, but for the tail i have a vario unit that goes in it. i might try and build a custom unit but we will have to see.
