I wanted a heli transport for my 28mm Cobra forces and loved the skycranes they used in the comics so I decided to build one.
I could not find any 1/48 scale choppers to build from so I used a Disney Windlifter toy that is based of off the Sikorsky skycrane.
Using a dremel I removed pieces I didn't need and created openings for the chin turret and rear fin. The troop compartment is based off a staples container with plasticard for details. I lined the tail of the chopper with metal bases and glued a rare earth magnet in the compartment so it could be attached and removed at will.
More to come,
