Wanted to make this as authentic as I could. Fits two minifigs, gun rotates, wings and tail flaps move and of course blades spin. Since all of the weight is in the front I couldn’t get it to balance (need hydraulics, but not at this scale) without a little stand on the front, which acts as a vent when folded upwards. The challenge was getting the wings merged with the engines, which took me several attempts. I also wanted to do the canopies differently, but the minifigs insertions made that too difficult.

I like how sleek this is, like it could take on a slow-moving enemy aircraft (like a cargo plane or fuel tanker) in air-to-air combat and routinely does so, but still manages to look armored enough to take on tanks.
Edit: just realized this is based on something, and having looked it up, it's a great recreation!
Stunning work here, James! Phenomenal job with the engines and the whole rotor mechanism, it's all very well proportioned. And sheesh, that's a ton of sloped pieces, kinda wish I had that many ;) I'll bet that main gun packs a punch as well... God bless and keep right on brickin'! ~Promar~
