Default Scale Metal Retracts and Guns for Airwolf NEW PHOTOS AND VIDEO!!!

Hi folks,

A few days ago I started to make some metal scale parts for an Airwolf...first was the retractable landing gear, very scale, even with a dummy breake system that some guys ask me if are functionall rsrsr!.

This are made 100% handwork in my workshop, I used high quality aluminium, I made even the wheels.
The gun system I used Aluminium, brass and wood.

A few photos of both projects finished...later I will post photos during the building...

Looks very good Manuel. It will be very interesting to see a nose retract light fitted as well.
Keep up the good work and will look forward to seeing the updated vids.

I can't wait to see the upgraded spec retracts Manuel.

The original set that you made was excellent so the improved version will be well worth waiting for.....

Great work Manuel.

Iam looking forward to receiving my set of scale retracts and getting them fitted to my Airwolf.
You certainly will be getting excellent feedback from myself and quite a few more orders I should imagine from my friends and probably their heli friends also.

Have a well deserved rest my friend.....

Hey how you doing. I have been looking for this quite a while now. Don't remember the company i purchased these from but when the package came all i had was two in it instead of three. I got the two that were housed with the machine guns but not the one that goes in the nose. I have a Trex 500 can you make or sell the set. Hope to hear from you soon. Project is incomplete with out these. Thanks
