EC145

The EC-145 is an helicopter I have yet to decide about.  A bigger type than the EC-135, I am not sure it carries the extra size as gracefully as it could.  It has a slightly bug-like look to it I think.  The most recent updates have added a Fenestron to replace the tail rotor.  That can sometimes be a good thing but on this type it seems like they have picked a slightly larger unit from the parts bin by mistake.  The fin section seems pretty large.  Even so, I am not totally against it.  It certainly seems smooth and quiet as it flies by.  This one did look kind of cool…
