Fantastic.  I've been wanting to build a combat tilt fan out of a chopper but lack any suitable fans.  Now i'm going to have a rummage through the Lego box. ;D

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

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

That is really cool, I have a few dead helicopters that would make good donors for some of those for S.H.A.D.O.  :thumbsup:
