I plan on a little diorama depicting the helo just about to lift off after dropping off some SF guys, like this:
First order of business then is the cockpit, this is where I am up to so far. A little creative wiring in the back and swapping out some of the kit parts with the Black Ops parts. I need to get the cockpit quickly to a stage where I can get the pilots in place, this will be the most time consuming part of the build and the helo can't progress too much until the crew is finished.
This is where I am at so far with the vest, the original kit part is there to show how much I have removed.
I've also made a start on the left arm
So this is a quick mock-up of the pilot in place, I need to drop the left shoulder and turn the head a little more left. The helmet and NVG are from Live Resin
Little bit more progress here, the figure has been re-scribed ready for adding the putty details back in. Still need to sort out that left shoulder.
So that is it for the moment, strap in and enjoy the ride !
