Set alternative of 5762. It only comes with 52 pieces (plus spares). With the remaining 8 pieces I made the weird glider thingy. I know it's not my best work and the blades too small, but it's just a bit of fun as I struggle for inspiration with my Moc Olympics R3 entry (help - I am up against Leda Kat!!)
I think I make a mehari. Scrap for non carlovers, and a truly classic for others. I'm not sure yet, I first need to try out a few ideas... the unimog doesn't go into pieces for me either, just to good... much greetings!
Today I bought my own 5762 set and started building the models in the bag. I also built a version of your Chinook without the 8x2 plate (which wasn't in the bag). It was a lot of fun to build that one! :-)) Take look here, if you want: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/291813
This is a pretty brilliant alternate!It's instantly recognizable and that's quite a feat with such a small amount of bricks. Best of luck to you in this round of the MO! In case you might get eliminated (which is really no shame considering your opponent) then at least you have all the time to yourself again to build whatever you want...

I built this quickly at home and it is nice in the real life too.
Thanks Gabor. You have made this? That is so cool :) As you can see the two trans red cheese slopes are used on the other side. I know the blades are too small but it is fun to play with.
@ Joost - Thanks man :). I think my MO story is almost over. I will have to do some thing very special to compete with very talented Leda Kat. Oh well here goes nothing.
Nice job with such limited parts - I can't really give it above a 3/5 though (otherwise your 4 and 5 star cars would be meaningless!) Best of luck in Round 3 of the MOClympics. No comments from me for a bit as I'm away for a while, but when I'm back hopefully your Western lego Show MOC will be up! : )
Hi! I have already tried to build a chinook for this set, but the result wasn't too good. It was very bed... But yours is smart and fantastic! I built this quickly at home and it is nice in the real life too.
