WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE FIRST LIFE-SIZE - SCRATCH-BUILT - SUPERSONIC STEALTH-HELICOPTER, WHICH IS WELL KNOWN BY THE NAME "LADY."
GET TO THE DIFFERENT PARTS OF THIS PROJECT THROUGH THESE QUICK-LINKS OR SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE "BATTLE-PLAN," WHICH WILL BE UPDATED WHEN THERE IS SOMETHING NEW.
This is the world's first and - to this date - only replica of the Lady's EDCC.
The project is divided into three main parts:
Fuselage & Defense Systems
EDCC & Front Cockpit
I´m going to build the front part of the fuselage (from nose to the back of the EDCC) from scratch, for flight-simming, as a piece of art, and for creating a suitable home for my EDCC and front cockpit area. The whole artwork will be more than 4,5 meters in length and more than 2,3 meters high.
My replica will be built as SR56-7W, as if A56-7W was just a cover-up for the real top-secret helicopter - called "SR56-7W." Therefore, I will call the Lady "SR56-7W" and I am going to change things slightly, supplement other things, make the EDCC more durable, and fill in the logical gaps that existed within the TV series. As such, my EDCC won't be a replica per definition (exact copy of an original with all details, including imperfections.)
SR56-7W will be able to explain how:
the ADFS (ADF-Pod) gets reloaded
missiles can fit into the small tubes of the ADFS
why there is always shown a glowing "fire-missile" in the TV-Show
how the guns can be retracted into the wings
and some more...
This is a long-term project, for sure, but I'm on it...
In the meantime, you will get to see photos of my unfinished work. When it's finished, I'll show photos of the finished project, of course.
Below this text, you will see the single stages of my project:
If the text is red, it has to be done.
If the text is blue, I'm working on it.
If the text is grey, it's finished or it´s a random text.
If the text is black and bold, and you can see some smoke, I blew up that whole thing.
Please note: I am the sole creator of this project. It has no relation to other Airwolf-related replicas, except for the ones I made and that are shown on this website.
Building Process in %
Overview of the parts planned to build
Retractable /extendable wing mounted guns (WMG2050)
Openable missile bays (starboard / port) with dummy-missile
Openable defensive pod
Extendable / retractable ADFS / ADF-Pod (All Direction Firing System) including loading system and missile rack.
Front cockpit (TFMC / Tactical Flight Management Center) with futuristic dashboard.
Retractable / extendable directed energy weapon (with real laser to pop air-ballons)
Full scale fuselage (inside & outside) - mainly made of epoxy resin, glass fiber fabric & carbon fiber and perhaps some hidden cameras.
Full scale replica of the EDCC (Electronic Data Command Center)
Electronics bay & radar
Camera cluster (starboard / port) (perhaps with functioning surveillance camera)
Openable doors with vomit bags.
Extendable / retractable stubwing-tips
The "Battle Plan"
ADFS & Other
Some people think my EDCC replica is just CGI or even a scale model in 1/48, that's why I took some photos for evidence. I still think it's funny to assume, my EDCC is 1/48 scale.
I would be a true 1/48 scale master and could get very rich with my talent. Unfortunately, it's all in 1/1 scale, as you can see above. The scale model is from Aoshima and 1/48.
