Yellow Cog - alternate model (set 5866)
Posted 03 October 2010 - 08:22 AM
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.
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!

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.
