With my compliments to Jim for the inspiration, here are the work-in-progress pics of the Gyrocopter I made for Action Man day last November:

Take a busted up pursuit craft and chop it up even more:


stick on some wood, plastic and car body filler


Prime and sand


coat of Rover Graphite Grey


Print out some homemade stickers and here's the Gyrocopter. Still needs weapon pods on the wings

There are brass barrels to go in the nose gun holes and brass rocket tubes to go tin the wings!
