Finished with a little CAREP for Don

Ended up flinging a tiny piece across the room with the tweezers. No eye balls were harmed but never found the piece. Also, if you bend the joints too many times while trying to fit up they fall off.



Tools needed for job.



Ta Da!!

Fewer pieces than a life sized chopper means it will be more reliable, right?

Have you tried adding rocket propellant?

Where would you like it moved to?

Give me coffee for the things I can change and Bourbon for the things I cannot!

I would have to find some pretty light tanks for rocket propellant.  :facepalm:

Anywhere that is appropriate. Or you can let it die here.. I just thought it was a funny "build" since I don't do any builds.  :grin:

this is a neat little project.  I have actually seen those before and thought they were pretty cool.
