Yellow Cog - alternate model (set 5866)

Hello everybody!

Today, let's have some fun with another littel Creator set. It's Creator 5866 - Rotor Rescue. It contains 149 pieces and is available for a relatively cheap price (9.99 EUR / 9.99 GBP / 12.99 USD). The parts variety is only moderately well, as it features many big 2 x 10 plates which make alternate building difficult.

So I was thinking what to do with all these long plates, and suddenly thought of the stripes of a sail ship. Then I built the small yellow cog ship presented below. It uses 124 of the 149 available pieces. :classic:

That's it for now. These little sets are always fun once you got inspired, and a great creativity challenge.

I wish you good inspiration and happy building!

Yours Christopher.

I didn't find a review of this set but my 3 year old just rebuilt the helicopter to the plane.

The color variation and slightly larger parts will at make it pedagogic and a bit more stable.

It is very odd that you can fit in much more bits (leaving less than 10) and getting a slightly

longer plane fitting a minifigure with post bags. It makes you think the designer didn't care very much.

You only need two technic rod to pin parts to fit the helicopter turbines to a dual propeller plane.

Then I got picky and fitted all parts but four, you need to remove the side windows to fit a minifig.
