Like a plank i didn't prepare the surface of the main fuselage before i fitted the windows, now i have to mask them somehow before i give it the bird-grit method. ... they look like this anyway:smiling3:

This instrument panel is attached to the inside of the rear cabin.

Thanks chaps.

the next few steps in the instructions deal mainly with the body and the whole model makes a big jump into looking like the end result.

The interior was a bit of a struggle to fit in body shell so a little trimming was required, the body shell fits reasonably well but will need a bit of filling and sanding along the seams (tippex will do nicely), the kit has a fair bit of rasied detail so a little "after care" might be required to put the detail back in.

this is where i'm at

thanks for the comments chaps.

Had to scratch a few items like antenna and the Wire Strike assemblies as the kit parts were a little too mis-moulded to salvage.

Got the base coat on and have all the doors etc attached, have given it a drybrush of gunmetal and dark brown to simulate a tough mission, but not too much as to make it look like its been battered about.

Have reclaimed an old diorama base and tidied it up to make it suitable for this chopper to sit on... it'll be sitting there doors open with some apparatus on the tarmac ready to be loaded on board.

View attachment 61924

Am scratching a few extra bits for the diorama .. wheelchair, rescue-board etc.

There seemed to be lots of bits for this kit but when you get down to building it there are lots of parts that aren't used (in fact one sprue with over 60 parts has only three bits used in this model).

The good thing is there'll be loads for the spares box and there's stuff such as gas bottles etc that i can use in this build.

Thanks chaps, getting close to the finish line now and i'm quite enjoying it, my experience of helicopters runs to failed attempts when young (one of which that i was pleased with ... i sat on like a idiot :smiling3: ), the revel Huey Hog (a nightmare to build) and a Blackhawk which i melted and mutilated to form the "blackhawk down" diorama.

I took the basic size from the originals and did some t'intergoogling to see what improvements i could attempt.

I think i just got a dodgy sprue (It was sort of "twisted" mid point so only half of it was moulded "offset" and the other bits were either OK or not needed in the build)
