8046 Twin Propeller Seaplane
Twin Propeller Seaplane, Alternate from parts of 8046 Helicopter
About this creation

I might have mentioned this before, but I'm a fan of LEGO Technic Helicopters ;-)
And so I bought myself the 8046 Helicopter. But don't worry, I'm not going to tell you now how much I like it.

After building the nice Seaplane B-Model, one thing came to my mind: it's a shame that it has got only one propeller, while there are gears and one rotor liftarm left. And that's why I went on to build a twin propeller seaplane form the parts of this set.



You will discover that I used many parts in the same way as they are used in the A- or B-model. But that's very likely concerning how few parts come with this set. Although the structure of my model had to be quite different because of the new functionality.



There's a knob on the back which rotates the two propellers in counter-rotation. However this could be changed easily to make them spin in the same direction. I also integrated the winch into this model.



If you want to build this Alternate model, take a look at some more pictures in my Brickshelf folder.

Quoting Halhi 141 I love helicopters too. I don't have any helicopter technic sets, and have made just one technic helicopter, but it is lots of fun. I can't bear to take it apart. Like all of your creations, this is better than even the official b model. I'm sad to see that you haven't posted anything for a year, does this mean you're not building anymore? Or does it just mean that you're working on something great...
Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately I haven't build anything recently. Maybe I'll buy the upcoming helicopter 9396. This might be the best official Technic helicopter till now. Although I think smaller sets are better for doing alternates.
