Winnie Posted June 22, 2021 Share Posted June 22, 2021 I received a box, with the word "FRAGILE" on it, I thought maybe it was a major award? Anyway, FedEx did their best to destroy it, the Box was practically round, and the tracking said it followed the routing of ROME-PARIS-NEW YORK-PARIS-MEMPHIS-WINNIPEG... I don't know why. but it certainly did a world tour! These parts are extremely well researched, and well printed. I have gotten several other parts from Shapeways, these were cheaper, and the plastic look different, but once I get into it I may do a comparison. Hendie (from Britmodeller) who made the other parts also did a lot of research and the parts look good too. Adriatic packed the box well, all the parts were in blister packs and taped down with strong double sided tape. makes it tough to remove the parts but hey, they ain't going anywhere on their own! (Free mask included, to keep us all safe a little longer). I ordered everything that was available for the Wessex HU.5, there are a couple pieces particular to the HC.2 that I did not order. First up, there were a LOT of packages First up, internal rib detail There is enough for both sides with pieces to spare as well as connectors, including the frame surround of the sliding door. the detail is very nice, and includes the details for the emergency exit opening. Rotor head, and tail pylon detail, includes the fold with bulkheads as well as the intermediate gear box Inside the air intake is next, with the classic frame included. you have to source mesh on your own, and I do have some ideas, there are 2 parts so if you mess up, you should be able to recover! This covers important details that FLY did not include at all. To place IN the intake well are 2 Rolls Royce Gnome H-1400 fronts, included are 2 separate styles of starter bullet, and also the variable guide vanes are visible on the engine sides Next up, bulkheads to move the cabin ceiling up a little. This will fix the transmission deck floor to the proper height, it includes corrected and refined detail Engine exhausts and exhaust door, contains 2 different style exhausts, both for floats and without floats, Cockpit details, just sublime. Some parts broke off the carrier, but as far as I can see no parts broken, it was supposed to include cyclic stick grips, but none was present, but I got 4 collective sticks. the details are incredible, and will replace parts that were broken in the Fly kit. Next up Transmission deck details and transmission. This includes everything needed, such as rotor brake, hydraulic pumps, oil cooler, transmission, drive shaft and various other bits. It also came with a length of wire to liven the area up. The professionals on here will certainly be able to build a masterpiece, I hope to be able to clap something together that does it a little justice. In addition I ordered an H-34 rotor head to supplement the one I broke for my MRC kit... I forgot to grab a picture of the heater duct, but I may grab a picture of it tomorrow! Hope you guys enjoy the pictures! 4 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
