This heli is meant to be stationed at the heli-platform on the "Calypso". the famous ocean explorer vessel of Jacques Cousteau. I started building it without creating it first in Ldraw, so I just discovered that it is just a litle too big for the ship. So I made an Ldraw version of it that is just a bit smaller.

here is a photo of the helicopter

and this will be the ship it is meant for. ( i still have to finish it in ldraw, before I start building it for real)

hope you will like it.

Awesome helicopter, I love all the small details. I can't wait to see the ship brick built.

I like the chopper. I LOVE the ship. You really are the master of sea-going creations. Really looking forward to the brick-built version of this.

Thanks everyone, for those who can't wait (like myself) for the "Calypso" to be finished in real bricks, here is a render:

Of coure the ship will be breathtaking as well when build in bricks. A lot of details there.

That ship is amazing, how long did it take to design it? Does it have an interior? I would love to have that in my yet to be added harbour. The helicopter fits in perfectly with the ship.

The helicopter is great, but that ship is truly amazing! I'm absolutely awestruck and I'm extremely exited to see this in real bricks.

Awesome job!

and here is the start of the Calypso. Still need so many bricks to finish the complete ship. I will first finish the complete front section and then start to build the back section of the ship.
The two parts will then be connected with technic pins

I agree. I'd love to get a chance to view some of your ships up close some day.
