If you have even a fraction of the stubbornness and determination of not letting something beat me that I have then I just know you'll win over this project CMDR.

I start quite complicated, here is a saying that says "persevere and you will succeed." Good luck with it.

thanks for encouragement... any hows here are things that did build well, the rotors fit perfectly, of course they needed a little detailing, the tail stabilizer and the tail rotor. On the first prelim build, the cabin aft section to the tapered portion of the tail and the tail to that section fit really well...

I did steal some parts from the larger GPM kit; The torpedoes and their fin- lets, the little sensors, radar/sonar pods, a such, you can see some of this stuff in the backround. this stuff was build earlier waitin' for the main fuselage to be completed.

This to me is a perfect illustration of the adaptability of Bruno's designs. Enjoying this immensely. Any plans of using your basic improvements of this Navy version to other variants?

almost there...

Gary After this if it goes off well I'll do the standard us army flying shuttle maybe a Pave hawk. there are enough coast guard versions out there that can be shrunk down. I still have a bunch more downsizing projects to do, the F20, a Grumman guardian from skyline, an a4, a mig 15 in Korean markings, a couple WW1 birds and 2 or 3 that I lost the larger versions to kids or other.
Here are a few correcting tweaks that need finishing touches. the issue I'm having is the one piece nose section that ends up squeezing the front cockpit section and bulges out the windscreen and then pulls apart and show huge unsightly gaps.

finally have it manageable. the best solution that I came up with is splitting the nose piece into 3 sections. they are more easily formed and cause little to no distortion of the main fuselage/cabin. onwards...

Reworked the tail and rudder, makes for a smoother transition and the original designed tail rotor housing fits well. now to attack the main engine housing...
