The pilot would feel uneasy to go into its cockpit (or "a little dangerous" if the propeller is turning)... :D

You only start the props after you're in the cockpit and wait until they stop before exiting.

That cross with the P.11 is the prettiest one, yet, of a gorgeous set.

Yup, hard to go wrong with a PZL  :)

those PZL wings are great indeed : I nearly used those of a Loire 46, but that will come later  ;)

The 6-pieces collection is VERY wonderful! :-*
I just wonder 2 little détails:
- 3 of them seem to have no propeller/jet, are they sailplanes? :)
- for the PZL, could you tell us more about rear passengers going Inside the cabin? because pylons are joining the door and the wing (is this a folding wing?) ;)

propulsion is indeed by sailing and by mental energy  ;)
and access is still possible through the front door, like in a coupé :
in whiff world it remains comfortable  ;D

These nose-sitters greatly enrich the world of VTOL (why were there only tail-sitters with too much simple transition to horizontal flight?) ;) :-* :icon_music:

nose sitters, that is an invention indeed, I am lucky that you are making me aware of it ;-)

The Huey looks like a helicopter version of the Stipa-Caproni (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stipa-Caproni)
