Two Gyros Please

The two Fi 265 Gyros drying on the paint bottles.

I had to block off the paint bottles so they would not roll away.

I also used a bit of clay to hold up the models so the landing gear would not touch the ground.

Clean clay does not harden and it is very helpful for making tools to hold model parts in place. I keep a little ball of it in my model tool box all the time for just such projects.

I flexed the rotor blades so they would droop down. Then I turned them over and held them in place with the hub while I glued them. I used the weight of a couple knives to keep them in place.
