8844 Helicopter


Okay, so it's a helicopter. It has a main rotor and a tail rotor. It can raise/lower it's landing gears (very Helicoptrish I think ,).

This is a set that I either bought or traded in some deal with my brother before my dark ages. He's six years older then me and was much more interested in my money or a model sailplane I got as a gift from a neighbor that moved... Anyway..

Year 1981, 301 pieces.

Sorry for the quality on these images, I have to rebuild this one day to produce better images :)

And then...

Done! These landing gears are retractable. Now that's a common feature on heli's!

Chainlinks :)

Up we go...


Alternative model #1

Close up.

This steering stick actually moves the rudder.

This rudder that is.

Alternative model #2.

Alternative model #3.

Seen Britney Spears video where she tries to look sexy with a chair? This is the very chair used.

Just kidding, they used a designer chair from France made out of stainless steel originally design to withstand the demands of the US Navy.

This is the alternative model #4

Alternative model #5

Britney Spears... nah.

This is a model of the retractable landing gears.

Great pieces
