Alternate from Creator set 6745 'Propellor Power'. After my 2 plane alternatives it's a helicopter this time, mainly inspired by the Denel AH-2 Rooivalk attack helicopter. To get the shape convincing was much harder than with the planes and needed some unusual building solutions.
About this creation
Sideview. It was difficult to get a color scheme with nice lines here.
Topview, which has a characteristic shape. You can rotate the blades.
Fly by, ready for combat.
...and gone again.
This set has a lot of potential for MOCs, but with the parts available it's definitely better for creating planes than helicopters.
I had a great time the other night using my copy of this set to build this helicopter. Nathanael has challenged anyone who attempts to make this model to do some creative thinking. In the end, the result is very satisfying. Go ahead...give it a try!
This is another nice alternate Nathanael. You are showing us all some really creative uses of the available parts on this one. I wonder if it can be duplicated from using only the images you have provided. I'll have to give it a shot. Will anybody else take up the challenge?
I like it
