This is a modified version of the classic 1970s 852 Helicopter, just the right size for our Maxifig friend.
About this creation
Not 100 % MOC , just an update of an old favourite..
The 852 Helicopter was the first Technial set I had. Christmas 1978 I think. I loved it, and still do - but it can always be improved. By changing the design of the landing skids and adding a canopy it looks a bit more realistic. I fiddled with the gearing as well to make the rotors turn faster and smoother. The excellent mechanism to change the pitch of the rotors I left alone. These are adjusted by the levers between the pilot's legs.
Other cosmetic parts are just tweaked and smoothed off a bit. Here it is next to the original..

Bob the Maxifig is usually fussy about his transport - strictly hot rods and helicopters..
