This project has just come into my hanger, and the new owner (Neill) has asked if I would document it here so he can watch the progress.

That is because we are going to use the HKH 500 mechanics in it, which is a reasonable clone of the Trex/Align 500 helicopter. Below is a picture of it in front of ano0ther project I am working on, an AH-1 TOW Cobra. It was in fact this picture that made the new owner ask me for it.


The HKH500 (HobbyKing Helicopters) came to me as a Pod and Boom Helicopter, and I bought the fuselage separately to put those mechanics into as the two of them make a nice scale helicopter at a reasonable price.

As you can see by the picture above, the fuselage already had the guns fitted, but the mechanics were simply "sitting inside it" when this photo was taken, as it was being used to compare the sizes of the AH-1 to the Airwolf.

Neill wants lighting added to the Airwolf, and I have therefore fitted Port and Starboard Navigation lights to the sponsons inboard of the guns, high intensity white strobes on top of the heli just behind the main mast and underneath between the body area and the tail fins.  A red static warning light is going on top of the vertical tail surface and to complete it, a pair of blue fixed lights will be positioned  either side of the nose area for use at night.
