So, without further ado, I present Johnny Thunder's flying jeep/truck. The jeep is basically the same as the one from 5978, with the obvious additions of the wings, tail and propellor.
The wings at the back open in two ways. The first allows access to the storage compartment.
The tail also makes a step to allow Thunder to reach into the storage area.
Inside the storage area there is a map, a red 'viking horn/tooth', a blue jewel, a pair of binoculars and Thunder's gun. Fixed on the sides of the jeep are a spade and an axe.
Now for the plane. The tail and propellor swing out from under the jeep after the wings have lifted it a short distance off the ground.
When in jeep mode, the tail and propellor sit neatly under the chassis.
Finally, all that remains is for me to point you towards the gallery (when public).
Comments, questions and criticisms welcome. :-)

As to the MOC, it is very well done. I like how the prop fits under the jeep (though wouldn't it get all banged up if you went off-roading?). I like how the back opens up.

Its quite obvious that youve taken the time to think about this moc even if it didnt take long to make.
And thanks everyone for the compliments. :-)

I could have made a modern car in this way, but the prop and tail would have had to actually fold into the base of the car, rather than just sit underneath. Here, the wheels can be placed in such a way that the car is high enough to not have the prop catch on the ground, and still look right.

Anyway, great work :-)

And the step up is 'too big' because it would be difficult to make it smaller without the tail suffering. It is a big reach though.
