That is hilarious!  ;D
Does it work? I suppose you could hook it up to an air source and operate it with a remote switch. Would be a funny thing to do at a model show.  ;D
Cheers,

I am not sure: this is so much heretical that it could generate violence from other modellers feeling like insulted... ;)

The tank is great! You could add an "unused" party favor in the rear, where the external fuel tanks would go.

thanks all !

there is a slight trick actually : the rolled and the extended ones are two different ones I can fit on the tank : there is no air supply  ;)

I could really see that being set up on the edge of the Korean demilitarised zone and blowing every hour on the hour.

You could see them all parading past Kim Jong-Un with their commanders stood stright up in the hatches saluting while the tanks blow their blowers at the same time. The Supreme Leader would wait a moment, and then take the salute by quietly raising a hand-made gold and silk blower of his own and blowing it in a dignified and restrained way. The scheduled spontaneous applause would then commence....

That made me laugh so hard while wishing I could show it to my late uncle Doug. He was notorious in the family for drinking gallons of tea: you could imagine this thing hovering around after him with emergency tea for any occasion.

When Doug used to come to our house, mum would have a cup of tea ready for him. He'd drain it in one swig every time and say 'fill up Middy" to get a refill. One time, Mum managed to get a novelty huge teacup that held a whole pint of tea, so for a laugh, she waiting until he arrived, then put it on the doorstep for him. he drained it in one swig and said 'fill up Middy...."  ;D

Dear ericr, you should win a contract of € billion (from Aerospatiale, now EADS?) for having invented the best marketing toy/gift EVER! :-*
(if I were the top-manager of EADS, I would sign the bank-order immediately, and with much joy)

Wonderful new machine! :-*
But I did not know the word aerosled, and Google Translate failed to translate it in our French. Fortunately Google Search with Wikipedia explained me this is a snowmobile (no need of wheels nor wings all right!), and the French Wikipedia said this is aerosan in French (a word I had never heard). This is a double miracle, as so pleasant a silhouette and enriching my vocabulary. ;)

another helicopter submitted to this transformation
(my stash is getting smaller and smaller !  ;D )
is a bit more sturdy-looking, and of russian origin :
the Mi-2

as a flying teapot (with an Aladdin-like style)





and as an aerosled (with skis from a Twin Otter : my spares box is also getting smaller) :

Have the jet pipes been drilled out so the blowers are still operable?
