I've finally finished my little project of creating a tuned-up version of the 42057 set an here it is complete with building instructions for your pleasure: https://myleniumsbrickcorner.wordpress.com/2018/06/10/final-surprise-42057-moc-finished/ Let me know if you have questions! Enjoy! Mylenium
After watching Mad Max; Road Warrior, I felt compelled to build an autogyro. The models features are; Fully articulated rotor head, controlled from the stick in the cabin Functioning rudders and turning front wheel, connected to the rudder pedals Four cylinder horizontally opposed aviation engine, connected to the propeller Working doors Highly detailed engine compartment Removable engine and main rotor assembly Working lights Removable side panels, for showing off the engine details I find it hard to believe how easily this model came together. All of the components just flowed together during the build. As you can probably tell my autogyro model looks quite a bit different than the autogyro in Mad Max. Initially I wanted to build an open framed model, as the build progressed it became apparent that it would be easier to incorporate all of the mechanisms into a full bodied model, and here is the result. I tried to keep the level of details high, and I think that I succeeded. For ease of operation (read, play ability), the propeller, engine and, main rotor are all connected together. There is also the option to insert a crank into the starboard side of the model, to spin all three at the same time. If there is enough interest I can film a video of the models functions. I hope that you enjoyed looking at my model. ~John P.S. I am sorry about the fuzziness in some of the photo's. My computer isn't back up to full speed yet, so I can't use it as a remote control for my camera.
