Show your SCALE Trex

I'm contemplating getting another heli (Trex or Swift) and would like to stay scale with it. I've been looking at Darth's bodies and really like the final products, as I used his jetranger on my corona shown below.

Please post your Trex with scale bodies, along with the details of your setup or tips for fitting the bodies that you have come across.

Much appreciated.

Darth's bodies...I wasn't going to post this until it was a finished product...but since you have asked , this is where I am at on a 206b jetranger from Darth for the Trex...the Trex started out as an XL/CDE ,, I have since gone to the aluminum frame and all grey metal head and tail parts...tail case included...As I finish test fitting and making dry runs , I will post how it is mounted and how I work through the finish ...Tom

Fantastic Guys,... just what I was hoping to see.

Darth,.. looked at your website just the other day, as the corona body was an excellent product, and I am sure to purchase a body from you again if I go the T-rex route. (most likely will, swift is looking to expensive) I really like the military scheme, but just as before, it's always neat to do a news chopper or civilian scheme too.

Username: Very nice work!

Too Tall: Looks good,... please post more when you get closer to finishing. I appreciate the "Sneak Peak"

Sweet,.. very creative approach. I like the elevated tail drive system and the multi-bladed head,...

You should look at darth's website for some bodies, his are nicely formed plastic shells that you can really deck out with detail....

Here's his website,.. notice,.. no www in the front.

Thanks Rob Schaffer for the URL. I'm aware of Darkdrk working. I saw it the workpieace in person also (Jet Ranger). I was thinking of getting Blackhawk/pavehawk/jayhawk/seahawk for my 4 rotor blades and maybe AS-350 or maybe Schweizer 300C for the 3 bladed TRex.

I was thinking of using BBI blackhawk or apache but then I can't find those in Singapore. I might decide to get darkdrk's scale...provided he can quote me a good price! (hehe!)
