Looks awesome! Have you tried a brighter light for your images? They seem a tad on the dark side.  More detail will show if you use a brighter light.

Love the little headsets, my guess is they don't come with the kit.

OhO!

       When I was growing up, before my turn at a uniform I used to go to " GrandMothers"( You didn't call her Granma) house. We went past a section of the Bell Aircraft factory there in Niagara Falls, N.Y. and they would be lined up in large numbers, with the markings of all three services and the Coast Guard too!

       I was so fasscinated with them I remember buying a Hawk or Aurora kit of one almost a foot or more long .The Canopy Bubble was molded in one piece and they didn't include door decals! Plus you could build the Medi-Vac or the one equipped with floats! The Canopy Bubble was so thick everything inside was all distorted!

Everything  is fine, just busy. Summer is a busy yardwork  time for me so I don't get a lot of bench time.
