Those big parts are just ugly... where is the creation? The imagination? I saw so many good helicopters MOC's without that kind of parts...

Now come on 'Ezechielle' there is only 3 larger pieces and a stack of slopes, plates and bricks to make up the rest, well I guess not everyone is always pleased - of course they are only my thoughts and you have yours - no problem.
How about someone tries to MOC one of these in pure brick/plate form and we could then compere which way might be the better.
What does everyone think ?

Looks better than box picture.  :thumbup:
When your halfway into the building of the heli before the engines and rotor, it looks like a ship or submarine.

Thanks for the review, good work!  :thumbup:

I don't really 'get' helicopters, though I liked the one with the transporter.  This one is a bit large, and having no great forest to speak of I have no forest fires to worry about.  Ignoring the fire logo, it is a nice helicopter that could be adapted as a search-and-rescue or passenger chopper, perhaps if it weren't so red.

I do love the 4x4:  the Range Rover that came with the horse box is one of my favorite vehicles, and I might just have to get this for the truck.

If anybody is interested, my local Tesco store is selling these for £19.97......

£10 cheaper than TRU

I now own this nice chopper and have to say that I got over the big nose part!  Very nice set and it is close to the real deal...  The 2010 lineup is good after all!

Cool Review DS!  :thumbup:

The Fire Helicopter is ok, I still prefer 7739 Coast Guard Helicopter and the 2010 Blue Helicopter with Limo
I like the bucket attachment, nice detail.

The best part of this set has to be the fire truck  :oh:  Really well built!
It is a  good thing that we have online instructions, so now I can easily  make my own, not only as a Fire Truck but it also will look nice as a civilian truck.

Not really a must buy, the truck can easily be recreated.
