Tis a peach of a heli to paint, but I sometimes want to use a rhyming word beginning with "b".

Individual screws are modelled and have their own (illogical) maps on the textures. Then there's the fact that the paintkit model and textures use some of these screws and other bits mirrored where they arbitrarily want. Without including a non mirroring UV map. So looking for these tiny, tiny, dots on the texture to be used in the repaint is something for Sisyphus!

Mind you, while I am fiddling and farse-arting around, I did reupholster the P1 and P2 seats.

Take a look at where I am going so far:

Pretty slick Chris. Very nice. Thank-you

Now just need to learn how to fly a helicopter ... (and good enough that I don't damage the new paint!)  :-\

Well, I do appreciate that the H145 costs a bunch of folding stuff, but it is worth it, even in its current prerelease version. I wouldn't normally buy a beta, but their H135 was pretty good, so if buying now helps the Hype Performance Group people then I am all for supporting them.

I bought it, once it was actually available. I passed on the pre-pay. It is a nice chopper.

 Thanks for the paint job.
