More parts have been added from the scrap pile, the engines are starting to take shape.

I found the rotors from the 1/72 Mil-26 Halo,so I will be using these but cut down to size. I'll try and give this build a suitable name.

Good! Is this the Zvezda model?
What use will be made of the rest (of the Mi-26)? Is this in another topic around here?
Good, this is pretty intersting invention :thumbsup:

No it's the 1/72 Italerii C-130H model, as to the Mil-26 Halo, I don't have all the parts nor any glazing for it. I 've always thought that it would make a great STOL fixed wing aircraft. Perhaps a kitbash using my remaining spare parts.
Thanks  :thumbsup:

Yes, this is the drawback of whifing so high... Congratulations for daring so much.
I hope you can afford more putty, otherwise we may try to help you all together, to buy a million lb of putty ;)

Thanks, I might be able to hide some of the holes with lumps & bumps from the Mil-26 Halo kit.
