RN Commando JunglieIn that case I'll have to do it as one in the Andrew, rotor blades "out" takes up a crazy amount of wasted space, so either do a crashed one or rotor blades folded on, have decals for both, so there we are. I'm beginning to remember why I don't do Wirly Birds very often.

I was there a few weeks back with @History_Man.I did motorcycle training on the remains of the airfield there, before they dug it all up.
The museum was great. I've not been back in (harrumph cough) years ..
now that is what I call evidence, nice one, I might even make another like that pic rotors and tail folded. CheersThe rotor blades on the RAF's HC.2's did fold up; Aircraft Photo of XV720 | Westland WS-58 Wessex HC.2 | UK - Air Force | AirHistory.net #176618
Did you fab those blade holders yourself Sprockers?the rotor blade holder.

two blades to port two blades to starboard, how they should look, now I can make the finer details like the ratchet strap and lower clamps.

there's only one way for something like that where the weight of the whole model rests on a thin scale structure, early fit, before any paint goes on, bare plastic welds together really well with liquid glue, early on in the build, well before the instructions suggest. even before the fuselage halves go together maybe.Getting helicopter undercarriage to do its thing is a mystery to me. I fail 90% of the time. Perhaps there is some special glue out there.
