A hurried Hind

I forget where I picked up this old Esci kit but it's been 'in stock' for a couple of years.  As I'll soon have work for such a big chopper I decided to throw it together last weekend.
The parts all looked crisp enough.
It went together easily enough - helped by my usual disdain for internal detail which left many fiddly parts still on the sprue!
There were a fair few explody things to attach - I built these as separate sub-assemblies.

Lining up the rotor blades was an adventure.  I wonder how long they'll last.
So far so good.  I'm hoping to get it painted by the end of the year!

I simplified the rotor head construction on my Hind and attached the rotors with a pair of rare earth magnets. I reckon removable rotors will be easier to transport or store safely.

I'm only building this because some fool sent me a LCW scenario which needs two Hinds...

Removable is definitely where it's at.
