This Project is quite different to many others I get asked to do, because this helicopter has been stored away in it's owners loft for over 5 years, and was probably around unused for another 5 years prior to that, so you can imagine that it is in what might be termed "somewhat unloved" condition.

That said, pretty well everything is there, so it is really a matter of tearing it all apart first of all to see exactly what condition the mechanics and fuselage are really in.

Here she is as received by me. The fuselage has some damage around the nose that needs repairing, but other than that, and the fact that the paint job is "not of the best", It is definitely recoverable with lots of TLC.  The inside of the fuselage is really dirty, which is not unexpected, and two of the side windows are missing, and one of the front screens has a bit missing down at the lower left corner.

The picture above shows the overall appearance of the helicopter as received from the right hand side

And this is the state of the nose area before recovery. It definitely needs some TLC here...
