Thanks for that.

The UH-1 is all Brent's fault. We were discussing the identities of two helicopters in a photo, one parked in front of the other. I thought both were Vipers because on the background aircraft, only the tail boom, engine housing and rotors were visible. Brent however pointed out the small ball on top of the rotor head on the rear one, which identified it as a Venom. He confirmed to me that the Viper and Venom both use the same boom, engine housing and rotors.

Since I didn't have to make those parts again, I thought naively, that it wouldn't be too difficult to make the cabin. The modelling was fine. What really threw me was the width. The plans I used were just not consistent in the 3 views. It took several references to head on photos and models and a re-size/re-map to get it right. I'm glad I did it though, it's quite an attractive and iconic model.

Forgive me if I've missed something but is there a paintkit for these birds?

No, not yet Dale. I just want to see that everything settles down before I upload one.

Just finished installing the Venoms and Vipers along with Camp Pendleton and everything looks incredible. Thanks for all the work that went into creating the Venoms and Vipers along with the Camp Pendleton scenery. It is an outstanding piece of work and thanks for sharing with the MAIW community, much appreciated.
