the other half of the Tomcat, with rubber bat wings (I have now a few others in my stash), and the original kit's Airfix stand





with the red thread from the rubber bat, it can be attached to the ceiling

Great thinking eric and seeing those rubber bat wings again really took me back!

Indeed!  any of those could loose a most deadly (or at least smelly) unguided missile.  OTOH, might be a great way to spread fertilizer over a field if you could keep them within the boundaries.

but then what happened with the rests of the helicopters?

they started new lives with bits of airplanes (guess which?  ;) ) :

a propeller transport :






a twin boom :






and a jet plane :

Beautiful conversions.  Pray tell, what went into each besides the obvious helicopter parts?  I can guess some, but there are some bits that puzzle me.

Using helicopters as airplane fuselages is some incredibly inspired thinking, eric!

Not only that but you did so in your wonderful and inimitable style.

Some of your best yet!
