No need of engine: it is powered by The Force! (what-if...) ;D

But surely there is no need for the force? With three people in the aircraft pedaling REALLY quickly it can get airborne!

Maybe you are right, while... ahem,  the propeller has no ground clearance at all.
So The Force makes it jump into the sky then the propeller turns and it goes... Pedalling does not provide enough power for that, I fear.
But the model is finished:

Thanks a lot!

Well, I succeeded in transforming from computer (Corel Draw) into plastic solid, now I can transform this one into computer double (Corel PhotoPaint): ;D

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks!

And here is a sketch of the whole project adventures, that went up to plastic success! ;)
