Nice job on the Cessna, did you paint the insignias on the wings or are they a decal?


Well I'm back to work on another H-19, this one a USAF UH-19A rescue helicopter. It will be equipped wit "hot dog" floats.

i printed those on my printer, then covered them in clear packing tape and used super glue gel smeared over where they'd go on the wing. the ones on the right wing i printed on clear labels, because i couldn't get any red i printed to match up. thanks for the compliments guys. i just wish i could have done a little better on the red stripe, but it looks good from a distance :lol:

USCG Jetranger Updated photos 11/29

Postby hooknladderno1 on Sat Nov 28, 2009 2:30 pm

Well,
After several weeks on the "back burner", the Jetranger is back on the bench. I felt that the kit supplied main rotor mast was just too weak and spindly(is that a word)?
Image
I thought I would try my hand at making one out of brass and plastic.
Image
Although it lacks some of the detail of the original, it definitely is stronger, and fits into the hole in the top of the fuselage(since I glued it together prior to placing this piece - OOPS!). I painted it up, and attached it to the rotorhead. Glued the whole thing together - I was pretty excited to see my first helicopter model coming together!
Image
I also placed the regular skids underneath, just to see the difference from the floats. I may paint these up, and not glue either pair in. This would allow me to change the look as I wish. Still lots to do - touch up paint, re-glue tail to tailboom, etc. The Stars and Bars decals became worn from handling, despite Future(must have been too thin over that spot), so I will be replacing them. Hope to have this one wrapped up soon.

Always building the smaller scale helicopters, I never thought about the rotor head not being strong enough. I guess that could be a problem in a larger scale, but it looks like you took care of that problem.


Well I wrapped up the UH-19A the other day, so here it is.

Aaron,
She looks great! Another winner! As with all of your rotorcraft, cleanly built, and nicely finished. I am actually putting the finishing touches on my USCG Jetranger - worked on it last night. I am working the next three days(am there now), so won't get to do anything until next week. Planning the display base now...

Awesome Work Aaron!!
Unfortunatly Supply and Demand has sidelined my build for now...
My supply of propellant has been all used and SWMBO demands that the money be spent on other things right now! :cry:

More later....

Anther great bird for your nest Aaron

Hi Guys,
As we wrap up 2009, I am finally putting the finishing touches on this build. As you know this is my first helicopter project. Although it has not turned out quite as well as I had hoped, it was a great learning lesson, and will give me something to look towards improving on future projects. I still have place the pitot tube on the front, antenna on the roof, and engine exhausts on the cowling. I am also working on a wooden display base with helipad markings. Let me know what you think...
