Just scallop the rotor blade trailing edges ...  ;)

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

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

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.

Neo: Even false things?

Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Keeping it in line with the Bell 47 of the Adam West TV series:

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.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

I would, we have them overhead on a daily basis, also R44s.  ;D ;D

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.
