Hmmm, I have a Bell 47 in the stash.  I never thought of building a Batcopter.

Stealthy, cool, and even has side-by-side seating so you can have dramatic scenes in the cockpit.

If you want to westernize it, go to a single rotor and have TWO fenestrons instead of the tailplanes.

I've got a couple of those R-22 kits. You wouldn't BELIEVE how small it is!  :o

And how big a box they put it in, but all the Pavla kits of that series are in the same size boxes I guess.

Interesting article on the R44 in Junes SAM along with a load of profiles and drawings. I never realised just how many had been built.
