Really nice mate. The eyelets on the tarp make a huge difference. Love the rotor tie-down too

If possible, can you move the rear tie down?
Usually they go directly down and around the tail boom, rather than on the angle that you've got, just a suggestion
Looks awesome Gary, looking forward to seeing it at AiC

In the build:
3x 1/24 Subaru rally cars
1/35 AH-6J Little bird

You mean this? The red outline is the tie down

Its up to you how you do it but most heli's go directly down and around, like below, only trying to help/make a suggestion

I wasn't being defensive, in the photo it looks to me to be tied down exactly where I've tied it down. I really don't think that 6 inches either way would really make that big a deal (I'm sure you hear that a lot haha ).
