https://flic.kr/s/aHskMiaLsj This was a really fun build. Added detail in the cockpit, and crew compartment. Also added detail to the main rotor head, and tail rotor. This model currently resides at the maintenance facility for the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment at Ft. Campbell Kentucky (Thanks to a very good friend and modeler).
https://flic.kr/s/aHskMiakey. This is the project that is currently on my build table. She's a doozy to. I've made quite a few corrections. Corrections made so far: Main rotor head, Tie downs on the tip of each rotor blade, 90 degree gearbox oil filler cap, new drive shaft for tail rotor, corrected tail stinger, corrected anti collision light, corrected FM antenna mount, Added tube framing on 2.75" rocket holder, added detail to cockpit hood, corrected both collectives (added switches), Added attachment points to the landing skids Added drive shaft to main transmission for tail rotor, Added brass screen to the engine cowling, added walls inside engine cowling. I would love for Kitty Hawk to come out with a 1/32nd scale kit of this helicopter.
The Matho Models Doors Set includes one photoetch fret about 4 x 6", with seven doors. The fret also includes some miscellaneous hardware including latches, escutcheon plates, door knockers, key holes, and two flower designs for one of the doors. The doors are all different wood door styles and several sizes as follows:
Colonial 2-11 x 6-11
Half-glazed panel 2-11 x 6-11
Glazed lite 3-1 x 6-11
Panel door 3-1 x 6-11
Arched top panel door 3-1 x 6-11
Solid door with vision lite 3-6 x 7-0
8 Pane stile & rail 3-4 x 6-11
The door hardware is very small and difficult to work with. I couldn't get the flower designs off the sprue without crumpling them. The door knockers are also very thin, and I mangled one so bad it was unusable. Matho Models provides door hinges as separate sets for mounting the doors.
