The first PCU helicopter made in Colombia the MTH-2 was developed in 2035 for the Invasion of Venezuela, where it proved to be quite efficient at picking off ground units and dropping off important cargo and squads. Perhaps it's only drawback was it's cockpit, as only one pilot is able to man the controls, although easy acces to the cabn made it less of a problem. It has been nicknamed "Chulo" (a vulgar way to say vulture for Colombians) for a very common mission given to these, to finish mopping up after a bombardment or simply search for survivors.
Menacing front view.
Side view, this is my longest MOC yet, at least 48 studs long not counting the rotors.
Back view, feel free to make pew pew sounds here.
Top backish sort of view....
In case you were wondering if troops could be carried, 4 can be seated comfortably and 7 uncomfortably. Oh and these aren't Great Colombian troops, the real GC troops are waiting for parts and stuff.
Cargo area, for carrying stophz.
THIS! IS! CHIBCHOMBIAAA!!!!!
Flare launcher, for pesky heat seeking missiles.
Big missiles. 'Nuff said.
Gatling gun, desingn stolen borriwed from Nannan Z., but I'm sure you already knew that.
Shot of the rotor, fairly simple.
And an overhead shot to close things. Man this looks like a shark, almost all my aeral vehicles end up looking like fish....
Did you know that...
...this is the only MOC I consider my best that is not a diorama?
...I got lazy for about a week and left the tail gathering dust?
...I hate that cockpit?
...I'm surprised the troop area can actually hold more than 4 troops?
...my next MOC might be Star Wars?
...I ask a lot of retorical questions?
I am writing this message to anyone who wasn't active in the 'TFOL Private Club' group as its admin: You've been inactive, and if you'll remain inactive until next week, you'll be kicked out from the group.
This is really just an awesome piece of work! I've tried a chopper once with... let's just say... not the best results. You've put a LOT of detail and greebling in this and your work paid off! I'm really drawn to the wing design as well. I know it's a "simple" technique but it just polishes off the overall build. Can't think of anything on this that I would (or COULD) do better! ~ Chris.
As I said before the tiny wings are my faves. The shape is a little odd, though: too long, not high enough and far away from being minifig-scale. However cool helicopter, nice to see some more vehicles from you!
