Tense tail

Next the Sioux, quite a complex build up at this early, pre-paint, stage

The cockpit is moulded in three pieces

annoying as it leaves me a prominent seam to dress

I have decided it is safe to add in the cockpit floor at this stage

the tail boom is a very complex structure

and a tricky devil to align

with vague placement on some of the internal details

Then the top struts go on, again fiddly to align

the tailplane is also unnecessarily complex in My view

and has taken an age to get the end plates aligned, and then into position

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

two sets of fuel tanks are included, I have built up both, as I have not yet determined which I should be using

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the rotor mount is in two parts

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

again, fiddly to align

and a final test fit of the tail boom onto the cockpit assembly
