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) :

I have a stock of 1/72 PM Models F(S's and F5B/T38's, several tens, I got them for very cheap, and I distill them in various adventures ...

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

Thanks for considering models of military aircraft like funny toys, rather than killers reproduction... ;)

thanks all!

the idea of having an air supply is certainly excellent, but, as for the tank shown before in this thread, this is only a proptotype, not fully equipped : if anyone feels inspired by a "dynamic" version, please go ahead !  ;D

*chuckle* I keep seeing these as party favors for a party thrown by Northrop to celebrate a major sale.
