There's been a lot going on. But I'm finally back at the bench with the Mi-8.
Pretty neat stuff, this. Find it at your local fishing store, in the fly tying section. Dozens of colors.
Moving along with the transmission.
The transmission will be open and visible. So I need to cut some doors. (Drag the tip of the blade backward along the cut line and let it gouge out a thin ribbon of plastic with each pass. Brass sheet is a flexible guide edge.)
I also produced my first casting of a passenger seat. The mold turned out better than expected. This seat is a single piece of resin.
Cockpit detail ahead. Stay tuned!
If praise and ridicule did not exist, who would you be?
Was really impressed with your wiring/plumbing, then comes along your seat? How'd you get the resin to pour into everything....did you use one of those vacuum things? Wonder if this helicopter is the same type as yours.
