Straightening bananas
« on: March 19, 2019, 12:49:24 pm »
FIRST: the compulsory date shot (I hope the newspaper date is readable)


Having, i don't know why, 2 H-21 from Hobbycraft, I decided to do something useful with one of them, giving it a more logical and rational shape.
I have to say that the parts fit is NOT the best, and, as always, I made an error. Should have glued front and rear parts of ONE side on a flat surface. It would have been much easier checking for alignment.Anyway this is the start of the glorious Flying Cucumber.



1) YES; I know I will have to raise the rear rotor.
2) I hope my mojo will not desert me

I have one of these in the stash. I always imagined building some sort of space pod type of thing. Iíll be watching with great interest.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

I've seen two of these used in a U-shaped spaceship some time ago. The donors were hard to recognize, looked rather outlandish!

My build is slowly advancing, I prefer to leave ample time for glue or putty to dry before touching anything.
Here is the situation, rotors just posed on top:



Hmmm. One of the fį*# blades is distorted. Will have to do something about it.
