Bell D-292
Not sure how to categorize this helicopter, so I decided to use an experimental helicopter class. Of course it is a helicopter made by Bell, the same company that made the famous "huey". I feel like this is the cross-breed between the Venom and the Huey. Mainly because the Huey only has two main rotor blades, not four. You could google all of those model names to find out what those look like.
About this creation


Took a while to get the pieces together for this build. But, after tinkering on it for some week or so, I decided to post it.



This build is just a little longer than a foot (30.48cm for the rest of the world). Almost one and a half if you count how far the blades reach out in front.



The nose was the hardest to make. The telephone piece is a part of the HUD of the pilot. I would like to extend it out one more stud, but the pieces are nonexistent within my collection.



The cockpit comfortably fits two, which took some clever part usage, which we shall get to a little later.



You can see the pilots a little better in this picture.



The cargo area does not have the standard separation wall that is in most Bell transport helicopters.



It is rather spacious, which again, we will see more on later.



Better view on the area that would be useless, had the wall existed.



Now onto the canopy. The blade design was primarily taken from the Lego city set with the Chinook-esqe helicopter. It is sturdy and I couldn't help myself. Props goes to whoever designed that.



The blades themselves are also pretty long. Almost a foot here. Still, pretty extensive.



Only one engine on this helicopter. Should've gone with two engines, but that would almost entirely alter the canopy design, and if I've learned anything, I know not to try and retool a build once the fundamental design is finished. I tend to ruin builds that way.



The tail is pretty long. Found old parts from a B-wing I believe. Worked really well to smooth out the tail area.



The antenna is bent twice to support the weight of the back. Had this not been a really flat surface, it would be leaning back due to lack of support without that antenna.



Good top view here. You can really see the length here.



Now, onto that detail I mentioned earlier. The canopy comes off (not easily) and shows the insides of this build.



I replaced the key parts here with bright colored pieces to make them easy to see.



Without the chairs, you can clearly see how this works. It works really well for fitting two people into a small space.



Nice cockpit view.



As you can see, I've shoved as many 'figs as I could into the cargo area.



It fits six when fully packed. I got both of the mini-guns from Mystery packs (BrickArms).

EXTRA PHOTOS!




This is the lightbox that I mentioned in my Skid Loader build. Really big. It can pretty much fit all MOCs that I've ever made, and I feel that it looks professional and turned out great. I thought I would need another lamp, but the box amplifies the source intensely. The whole box just turns into a block of glowstone as soon as I turn on that light. It looks fantastic.



It's so big, I could fit the smaller box on top of it. Both work great. I would suggest getting some of these for taking pictures. If you would like to build your own, you could go to the link below, which is the instructions I followed to make mine.

Quoting Commander Knox Cool MOC! Congrats on getting it on the home page.
Funny, that actually tends to happen often to me. It does wonders for views so, I'm not complaining.

Quoting Christian Collins Pretty good job! My only complaint, the skids, they need to be larger.
Agreed. Don't believe I have the pieces though, but I'll work on it.
