It is a small big helicopter that has gobs of power just waiting to come alive. Carrying that water aint no joke. They really got that pop.... one of my favorites

Got a cool picture of me on the flight line co-pilot spooled up in the renegade (tv show) 212. It has Marines marking,s gray and dirty, I'll look for it

Can't wait to hear her spool up

Thanks for the wildcat links, big company

Windows and front doors dremeled out, and front formers glued together, will treat the woodwork so it will sand smooth ready to be painted before it is bonded in place.

Cletus, this bird can be built with a detatchable boom, one big twist fitting locks it on solidly, OR, build it as one lump, and put it in a van to get to the field

Which way are you going to do it Sats?

Removable boom or fixed?

Sats,
Been thinking about that big build of yours and thought I would mention that I bought a DeLight lighting kit, which I originally intended for my Bell 222 but ended up using it on my Intrepid Turbine instead. You may want to consider it for your build, it's fully programmable and surely can duplicate scale lighting, without requiring a separate channel.
I programmed mine to actuate various sequences and effects depending on throttle/collective position (Low-stick/Low-Trim: Port and Stbd lights act as independent, mechanical rotating beacons and strobes off ...Ground-Idle: Port and Stbd lights steady-on, strobes sequentially triple flash). Quite happy with it and the price is reasonable I think http://www.dimensionengineering.com/...tarterKit.html

Will most likely build it in one piece i think, Cletus, thanks for the link, looks great, yes, i was going to do lights anyway, but this system looks terrific.
That little fuzzy dog is a pest, he he he, but we love her

Just realised thats not a nice introduction from me Satsu. This is not the first build of you that I'm following, you're doing a great job and you're one of the people that always make me doubt about what scaler to get myself.

Default paint schemes

I used to fight Wild Fires in Alberta...this was the A Star for a company called Pheonix Helicopters.....different machine...but great paint job!! This is a before and after shot....and an action shot doing some back burning just south of Fort McMurray. I believe Paul (owner) has newer machines with even better paint jobs.
