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.

Cheers

That's some mighty fine scratch building, especially for the scale. I look forward to seeing your progress on this one.

Here's a quick update!

The photo shows the upgraded landing gear and the stock part on the right.



The wheels are the kit parts after being turned in order to make them circular and concentric with the hub. Most of the main gear was built from plastic card and plastic rod.
I'll try to post a step-by-step of its construction on my blog during this weekend.

Cheers
