Crashed my Hind D today. She went in nose first. You may ask why, well, I was comming out of a turn and that little piece of silicone tubing that holds the tailrotor on, well it must have slid off a little. Lost tail control and tried to level her out but didnt make it.
Im glad this is styrene. The fuselage is almost back like original. Im repairing it with some good ole Testors plastic model cement
And some would think I would have just made me another one.

It's been good to see you turn out a variety of fuselarge options recently .

The damage looks bad but its fully repaired looks just as good as new. All I have to do is some paint touch up.

I plan to start soon. I have quite a bit to get done. Also just lost my local plastic supplier(closed up local shop). Now I have to order out and my material cost has jumped about 40% to 80% depending on plastic material. Funny, Im ordering from the same company/manufacturer but from a different location and having to pay freight on top of that. (sorry but I had to vent a little)
