15-Piece Vehicle Challenge: Sikorsky Skycrane
A fifteen piece model of the popular entry item called a helicopter. For Sam the First's 15PVC.
About this creation
This is my entry to Sam the First's 15 piece vehicle challenge! : 2015. I have been continually impressed by the quality of entries, not to mention the sheer number of participants. Thank you, Sam!










Well, I had a lot of fun with this one. Not realizing how prestigious this contest was, I invited myself. I am sure my actions will be justly reflected, as I witness the fantastic submissions made by others. I hope you like what I did!

Here is the Sikorsky flying with its belly container attached (this is an accessory).


Another, this time hauling logs <(accessory).
Spoiler Alert, I used some handy virtual glue for this one.



This is my Coast Guard variant of the same vehicle rescuing an accessory catamaran.


And the compulsory image of the 15 pieces I used. The accessories are shown at the bottom, along with my handy virtual glue.


Slightly less compulsory accessory disclaimer

Please leave a comment if you enjoy it! Thanks for taking a look!

Quoting Lego Jim ..... Hey. This is pretty cool. The shape of the vehicle is perfect. Awesome job. Did you get your parts for your other project yet?
Actually, no. I had to do a two-part order because of the specific parts. The first (and smaller) batch arrived several days ago, but I'm still waiting for the second order to ship. It's unfortunate, since now I'll miss the MOCathalon deadline, but I'll be sure to put it all together and let you know when it gets here. Thanks for the comment. Cheers, friend!

No problem at all, though that's really thoughtful of you to do. Thank you for your appreciation! It still amazes me at times that this is my most popular creation.

Quoting Henrik Jensen Excellent entry to the 15PVC! I think you nailed the look of the Skycrane with you microversion, except for the nosewhell :-) ,and I really like your Pictures!
Arrghhrr, you don't know how many brain cells I killed trying to fit that front wheel in. I finally decided to omit it in favor of other things. Thanks for taking a look!

Quoting Lo var Lachland Awesome job. But how do you squeeze the glue out of the bottle? With digital hands? ;)
Surely. And I use a virtual magnifying glass to apply it with perfect precision. Virtual napkins to clean up the mess... You get the gist. Thanks for the compliments!

Quoting eric s very clever! that raft is awesome! and how in the world did you get the rotors to look like they're rotating!?
Thank you; I'm glad you like the raft! Here's how I made the blades spinning: the rotor I used is three-pronged, which means 1 blade every 120°, so I made a total of 12 renders, each turned at a 10° angle. Then I made each render slightly more transparent than the previous one. After that, I stacked them all up and overlayed it onto the main image. Hope that makes sense!
