Vario Bell 412 Not a complete build, but a project still of interest and a first for us,  fitting a set of Goblin mechanics into a Vario fuselage designed for Skyfox mechanics.
The mechanics fitted with the East Coast Vario drop down gearbox.
Early stages of lining up the mechanics just to see how everything will fit and to check clearances.
The original woodwork for the Skyfox mechanics was already in place and so this was utilised to mount the drop down gearbox.
With the mechanics mounted and a cabin floor in place it makes a large area for adding a scale interior.
The next stage was to fit a slightly longer main shaft, four blade head and upgrade to all metal gearing.
Trim and fit the front doors and fit a rear bulkhead at the back of the cabin.
The owner is going to add a weapons system and other scale detailing, so as far as we are concerned for this build
