  1. This is another excellent build Allan !!!! You are a helicopter building machine…………… 🙂

    “liked”

  2. I agree with Louis’ assessment entirely…………… 🙂

  3. Wow – that is a lovely whirlybird! I’m not a rotor-top guy, but that’s one of my favorite builds of your recent accomplishments. It just looks excellent.

  4. Wow, that looks great, Allan! It looks very real.

    Question: do the blades droop naturally due to their weight – like the real ones – or do you make them droop? If so, how do you make them look so even?

    Bravo!

  5. I like this a lot. Really nice work on this.

  6. Almost missed this one, great job, nice scheme!

  7. Hello Allan,
    Your Cyprus Wessex looks great.
    Regards, Dirk

  8. I’ve gone on about your work for this GB a lot recently, Allan. Your posts are always modest and your builds are always just top notch. I look through the builds of those of the RAF100 mob who have put in multiple subjects and I try to pick a favourite. Of your builds in the ‘previous’ section the B29 always makes me smile. When, in the final presentation I look back I know this is going to be a favourite of mine – not just for your haul, but across the whole group. For me it is really special model. There are three or four iModelers that have totally owned this GB – you are one of them – thanks so much, Allan!

  9. My thanks to you Paul for your work on this GB, it’s nice to have a couple of helicopters here !!
