How much is too much or when out of the box is out of the question.

June 7, 2010

I am going to start building a couple of AH-1Fs.  That can’t be bad right?  I’m not so sure.  If you are familiar with Werner’s Wings then you know many of my items are for the Cobra including the decals.  The reason behind this is I’ve always loved the Cobra but I also flew it for 10 year including during Desert Storm.  It is my first love.  If the Army still had them I would still be in.  I was a test pilot on it.  I was intimately familiar with all aspects of the helicopter. 

So now that I’ve decided to start the models, what do I do to it?  I may have so much information that I think the hardest part will be when do I stop.  I was thinking of opening the engine and transmission cowlings on one kit.  Maybe that is too much work.  Maybe not.  Spending years working on these machines I have bukku information.  So there isn’t a lot that I don’t have on it.  When do you stop?   Out of the box is out of the question.

I think the only thing to do is to start them and see how it goes.  My problem will be when to stop and wanting everything to be perfect.  We’ll see how it goes.  Wish me luck.
