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.
