you should try to make a joint in the propellers that would allow them to fold down to the sides, it would make the mech look much better then it already does, not trying to say it looks bad or anything but that would make it look better
I had trouble deciding which one of Your large mechs was better- Dragonfly or Bulldog, but in the end Dragonfly won. I love the Heli/Walker combo (I'm currently working on something similar- Jet/Walker combo). Legs fit nicely in the back and don't disrupt the overall design, which is a big plus.
So, I was browsing the internet looking for a tutorial on how to make lego trench coats, I found your page. I was instantly impressed by your amazing models and funny themes. It was nice to see another CFOL (and TFOL) making such amazing models. Well, first I want to complement you on this amazing model. Great idea making a mech helicopter, I like smart ideas like that. And secondly I want to let you know that you are my newest favorite builder, congrats! I hope to be seeing more of your models soon!

That's amazing! Do you have any tips for me because I want to try my hand at building a helicopter.
Well, all I can say is to look at helicopters made by other builders for inspiration(usually hepls me a lot) and also if what you build isn't to your liking don't be afraid to tear it apart and start over. Hope some of this helps!
Man,your mocs are wicked,they have a unique design.Check out my mocs,if you can.

This is excellent! The half walker half helicopter is a really neat idea. I hope you don't mind that I borrowed your rotor design for one of my own helicopters seen here http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/141096
Nice, reminds me of a Transformer. Did you ever mess around with the idea of folding the rotors and tail boom up when it's in walk mode? Excellent job on getting the legs to fold up so well in the flight mode.
This is a godly creation, and i hope to one day be a shadow of this greatness. (on another note, this pales in consideration to the awesomeness that is Keith. oh well, you tried)
Keep it up, man, great work.
Terrifying and terrific all in one package! I'm a little peeved though. Why you ask? Well, I ordered a bulk order of 200 units just for the free pens and when they finally shipped (three weeks after the mechs themselves!), there were no ink cartridges!?! So I called customer service and the Indian guy was like, "De ink cartridges cost 1500 dolla extra. Cash or credit?" Need I say more? No? Okay, good. Seriously though, great work. And thanks for the great review. I have made a racing variant of the Rapier but haven't posted. I can email you a picture if you want. Again, great work! Peace - Patrick
Ummm, wait, let me do the math... So that is about 24 rockets, right? Okay, that's not that bad. But from looking at it, I would only say there are 4. Are the others BEHIND the first, or something? Oh, well, I still love the concept. Great work, my friend.
hey matt, i just posted a third variation of my liberty gundam. please comment on it. ps: nice job, but it looks like it should lean a bit more to the vehicle section since you can't see that it has legs very well due to their size.
Awesom!! Totally amazing!! This is one the best helis I've seen. I love the weapons, and especially the machine gun, but you should add some gattling. You know, some small machine guns, a turret, maybe another missile launcher, etc. Overall... One of the best helis out there.
METAL! Nice work man. Have to agree with Rathe: looks awesome but if the rotors could fold it would be perfect. Folders rotors troubled me alot when I tried to do a M.A.S.K. Switchblade-they're hard man!
Wow, it looks great! I love the legs (if you the the legs wrong on a mech, the whole thing is trash in my opinion). It also looks GREAT in heli mode, especially the back end. I might have to copy that cockpit idea (I have been working on something like that), and the chain gun looks great! My only complaint is that, come on, one gun and four missiles?!?! That thing needs a few gatlings, and some of those 5 pack rockets that are very popular on MOCPages! Get real! ;)
me likey!! i love the concept, and you've executed it perfectly. the machine gun belt looks terrific (although the rest of the model does too). the only thing that bothers me is the dual tail rotor arrangement, which in real life wouldn't work very well. but that's minor, really. the rest's very good, so 5/5.
