Spent 5 1/2 hours working on the build today. I got two little pieces completed and got the Turbo Shaft Engines partially done. The Shaft Engines are ridiculous to make. It took quite some time over the past few weeks to think about how I was going to go about it and most of the day to execute it and get the pieces as far as I did. I'm hoping to get them finished tomorrow and get them mounted on the helicopter. I guess we will see how that goes.

I have to say that these Turbo Shaft Engines are the most complex and thought provoking pieces I have ever made for a model. I worked another 8 hours on the build today. I managed to get the TSE's made and installed. I got the rear wheel made and installed. I also got the wing marker lights installed as well as the nose of the helicopter completed. It was a very productive day.

After a total of 75 hours on this build, the Apache is done. Today I managed to get the main rotor hub constructed as well as the rotor blades. This build was a ton of fun and there was plenty of challenges along the way. 75 hours well spent.

very nicely done, Ken !!
did you have any plans or examples to go by ?
my father was Blessed with the trait that he could go to a hobby store
and look at a model airplane and memorize the details. buy a pack
of balsa wood and go home and build an actual working scale model
of a Piper J3 Cub from scratch. he was extremely gifted in that area.
as for me, I couldn't pour water out of paper bag with the directions on the bottom.
excellent job !!!

.

I am a painter: that's what I do, I like to paint things.

I did make this model from a set of plans John. I normally add my own details to the models and change things as I go and I did that in a few areas here. So a little of their design and a little of mine. I try to work from plans when I can because someone (and I won't mention any names) has a bad habit of over engineering things that he designs. LOL. Thanks for the kind words.
