I am looking for either a 3 view of a Bell 206 Jetranger (Kiowa) or the Huey 212n. Instead of building a fixed wing I thought I would have a go at a Heli type for the winter. I believe I have the numbers right but being in the senior category I may be off. Both aircraft where used by the Cdn. Forces in the 70's and as I have lots of hours on them I would prefer to build them.
Thanks in advance,

Thanks, will have a boo at the site for the info.
Hope these help. There not very large but if you needed bigger I could email some.

Hi John: Seems three views for helis are just about impossible to find. Tried to find 3 views for a Sikorski Dragonfly but all I could find were good photos. So I drew up as best I could, copied to some pink foam and carved to shape. Hollowed out the inside with the soldering gun with copper wire trick. Looks sort of way off scale but whose going to complain without 3 views:mrgreen: At least it looks better than the eggs they call canopies. This is on the weeny Walkera 4#3B Turned out very well and doesn't weigh anything.

Thanks for your help. I am realizing that 3 views are not very plentiful for helis but it was worth it to ask. I am going to make a cnc cutter and it would be a good project when done (if it gets done) to cut one out of foam for a shell.

What do you want exactly, stations with butt and water lines?

That would be a big help but you don't see much of anything like that. I think I will try after I get caught up a bit taking a picture and converting it to cad and then try a hand at cutting it out of foam with my cnc foamcutter. At least this way I can get the outlines close.

Vulcan, now there is a bizzare place... do they still hold the Star Trek yearly worldwide thingy there?

Where do you think I got my pointy ears. Not from this planet.

3 view of KIOWA CH136 ACFT with several coloured and B/W pictures will be mailed later this morning.

As always you come through with things for me. It is very much appreciatted.

That would be a big help but you don't see much of anything like that.
All you have to do is ask, PM me your e-mail and I'll send off some 206 technical drawings.
Here's a links to a scale build:
It's a project requiring time and effort very different from buying off the shelf items with assembly like an expensive lego-toy. My feeling is you can either throw money at a project, time and skill or a balance of the two. Both are fun, but I have to tell you this guy George is a real modeler. You may want to PM him for help. I don't know the guy but he appears approachable.

Thanks for the drawings that where sent by email. May be a little difficult for size but workable for a start.
On another note. What is the most common scale factor for a 60 size machine. Either that or would making the fuse to fit the mechanics be better. The more I look at the drawings I might be better off starting with some older mechanics and do some modifications to match the scale outlines. For instance the Huey has an elevated tail rotor which is not common for a model.
At the moment it is a toss up which one to start with but I think it will be the 212 as the fuse has a larger body for hiding the electronics. I know I am also going to build the Kiowa
(Jet Ranger) but that will have to wait.
If anybody has some crashed/wrecked mechanics for a 50/60 size I would be interested. It does not matter what make they are as I will use them for a rebuild for the project. I am willing to pay if that helps.

Received your package today and I do not know how to thank you. For anybody's interest he brought back some old memories which brought a tear when I showed them to my wife. Along with the official NDHQ 3 views for painting he also included some pictures of my regiment (RCD's) in Europe. One picture has in field a Leopard with the Kiowa above it in southern Germany. The other 3 are on the ground and one is with the crew dismounted. I will see if I can get them scanned properly as mine does not do them justice.
Donovan I think the one in field has the gun kit mounted. We where not allowed to mount them here but mine had the search light on the right hand side if needed. It was for riot control for a place in Sask. and for practice I used to light up the Eskimo's football stadium. It was limited on swing by my joystick so you could not point it at the fuselage or it would burn a hole in the side. I qualified on the gun at the primrose range which was a lot of fun.
Now I have my mind made up for which one to make right up to the armoured seats and the official colours when I find what colour the numbers are.

I also wanted to ask if anybody is familiar with the mechanic's package from Century? From what I can see it is for building scale models as they have other packages to fit like multi blade rotor heads. I have one offer so far but it is a complete package which I am not familiar with and maybe to much for what I want or need.
