A very simple kit, but should be a fun build.

The fuselage is now buttoned up. The cockpit is simple to say the least.

Well, the forward landing gear was very interesting indeed. I'm not sure how, but I managed it. Excluding the clear wind screens, and decals, this is the entire kit. Now to choose a paint scheme and go forward. The rotary wing appears enormous. The Fine Molds design did not provide for drooping rotors.

I like it, it's so different but one would have to be brave to fly it.

I manage to droop rotors by holding them tightly between finger and thumb and drawing them along the blade from hub to tip and at the same time flexing down, by doing this a few times the warmth from the fingers helps to impart a curve.

Cheers for the advice Del. It would appear more realistic with drooping rotors.

You're very welcome Blaine and I hope I've still got the knack and it works on my Mi-2 'cos they are as flat as a pancake.

Cheers gents. The decals for the fuselage are quite simple. The rotors also received decals; an interesting 1,2, and 3 stripe arrangement. Now for some weathering and final touches.
