      Here is a scratch built H-13D, mostly brass. The main rotor turns the engine cooling fan and tail rotor through bevel gears in the transmission, with a working universal joint and worm gears in the tail rotor shaft. I put here because there is no section for Helicopters.



      Here is a right side shot a little closer. The top side of the gas tank is hammered copper to get the compound surfaces in one piece.


      Closeup of cabin area. I thermoformed the bubble using PETE to keep it thin and strong.



      Here is the transmission that the bevel gears are in that drive the pulley and rear driveshaft.



      Engine and transmission assembly.


      This shows the worm gears that drive the tail rotor shaft.



      Working universal joint. 1/8th inch diameter

    What more can I say. This is the best I've ever seen. Hey Don, can you imagine a huge model of the Huey you flew?

    That's the stuff dreams are made of Jeff. It's easy to get lost in builds of this quality.

    Hey Ken, I'm still as blown away by your model as when I posted them on LSP some time ago. You should post your World War I planes as well, they are just simply amazing! If you ever want to do an old-time sprint car, I've got some good drawings, that model would just be something to drool over!

    Hey Mario, looks like I got some work to do. Here I go back into the basement for some more experimentation. I got my soldering act together. I gotta go get some more brass.

    Slingshot, MADD FABRICATOR here. Fill me in on those sprint car plans you've got. Like the scale are the drawings and whose chassis/design and era is it. Can I get a copy of the plans if they are something I don't already have?

    Great looking vertical bird !!!!! Somehow building in brass just lends a whole new perspective to model building. GREAT WORK, glad to see it posted here.

    Here's a link to where I got the plans, scroll down about halfway down the page and each page of the article is posted. The guy who put up the pages of the article (including the drawings) built a real car from them for his dad that was in the recent Street Rodder, the article made it sound like the car was for this street as well. The link has a lot of pages to it with some great sprint car photos.

    Slingshot, Many Thanks for the link to the plans. Looks like a good home for the TDR OFFY engine. It should be a neat 1/8th scale project.
