Here are the first photos of the model presently at the modeling bench.
This last photo shows the tail rotor included in the kit (on the right) and the one I've detailed, scratch-building the central hub and using the blades of the 6 bladed rotor (also included in the kit).
The exhausts were also made out of brass tubing.
I hope to post more soon.
That's some mighty fine scratch building, especially for the scale. I look forward to seeing your progress on this one.
