All that armour & fire-power & what does it take to stop it? ???

Soft ground !

And, with all that weight, a paved highway probably classifies as "soft ground". ;D

Is inspiring  ---  With 1/32-1/35 rotor blades can build a super lift tri-rotor 1/72 helicopter.

I also like this helo. Start with 2 CH-47s kits, scratch build the extensions, add some Agusta Westland AW101 or CH-53 blades and you have a close approximation.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Got some 1/32 rotor blades from a CH-47 to do just that, only they're for a 1/72 C-130 sized Rotordyne

Not sure if this is appropriate here, but I can't remember if I ever posted these I drew quite a few years ago (read: pre-computer days)

Thanks TC,

Just so you can imagine the size of them, the car in the drawings is of a '78 Camaro (my wife was driving one at the time so I measured it up). IIRC, the blade chords are about 5 feet, I had calculated the wing area of a C-130 then worked out from there how big (and how many) the rotor blades would have to be.
