Thanks gentlemen,

and yes it's a lot of rotor for such a medium sized helicopter. I've put an H-19/S-55 next to it and even a Kaman Huskie ( the mach 2 one, haven't had the guts yet to build it..) still it is a lot of rotor. Hence it'll probably have a lot of liftpower. I wasn't actually planning on a flying crane, was actually thinking about rescue or utility roles.
In utility role I guess it could be able to lift 10 soldiers and three crew plus underslung cargo (a Jeep or Weapon Carrier perhaps?).

Thanks Tophe!

Oh, by the way the project in the back is the Rockwell FAR-X still not finished for the flying machines of the unconventional means GB. All it need now is some painting. and final assembly.

SAR is a good mission for a craft with a lot of power.  :)
I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

GOOD thinking, my thoughts about match yours exactly.  :thumbsup:

Next up is spraying the check finish (Gloss Black), maybe do some PSR (again) and rattlecan in Tamiya PS-12.

Enjoy your modelling!

Hmmmmmm, with those big engines and the overall caricaturesque design this is making me think of something one would see in a Despicable Me movie flying at speed with massive amounts of black smoke pouring from the exhausts.  I love it.

Delightful! Weirdier than a Kamov.

I was thinking of Mickey Mouse




And I'm reminded a lot of the Kamov Ka-26, too:



I like it a lot  :wub:
Whatever.

I have to find some suitable gears so I can copy your design build something similar.

That reminds me of driving to Berlin in the mid-80s and having one of them do a low pass directly over me on the autobahn! That view in the pic is pretty well exactly what I could see too! Pretty scary.  :o
