Autogyro-C4

Thumbnail
The failures of Cierva's previous designs, the C.2 and C.3, had led him to understand that he needed to overcome the problem of dissymmetry of lift in order to get an autogyro to fly without rolling over. He noted that the problems that he was experiencing with his full-size aircraft were not found in the models that he had successfully flown.

Autogyro-W2

Thumbnail
The Cierva C.2 was an experimental autogyro built by Juan de la Cierva in Spain in 1921-22. Following the failure of the C.1 the previous year, la Cierva started again from scratch, this time taking the fuselage from a Hanriot biplane and adding a five-bladed single rotor to it.

Bell-H13-Sioux

Thumbnail
This was the most popular Bell helicopter of all due to its important role on the TV program MASH. You are going to enjoy fitting in a burned out light bulb for the canopy.

DaVinci-Airscrew

Thumbnail
Though the first actual helicopter wasn’t built until the 1940s, it is believed that Leo's sketches from the late fifteenth century were the predecessor to the modern day flying machine. As with many DaVinci’s ideas, he never actually built and tested it – but his notes and drawings mapped out exactly how the device would operate.. Perfect 'A' magnet school project !!

Flettner-282

Thumbnail
In Germany, Anton Flettner developed a series of helicopters using counter-rotating intermeshing rotors. In 1942, the two seat Fl 282 Kolibri ("Humming Bird") became the first helicopter anywhere to enter operational military service. It was the most advanced helicopter developed during WWII. Thanks to Aaron for distilling this pretty complex piece of machinery into a relatively easy cardmodel.

Flying-Humvee

Thumbnail
The US Military has come up with more than 50,000,000 exploratory bucks for this Humvee Transformer (TX) program calling for a ‘robust ground vehicle’ that can quickly transform into a vertical-takeoff-and-landing (VTOL. It'll have a 1,000 pound payload and a flying range of 300 miles. Yeah right !! When pigs fly.. The FG Flying Humvee is easy to build and with moving parts like a proper transformer. Large and regular versions PLUS the BumbleVee fun version- Sorry, no BW version for this model due to budget cutback.

FockeAchgelis Fa-61

Thumbnail
Prof. Heinrich Focke had come to the conclusion that the inadequacies and limited serviceability of autogyros could only be eliminated by a real helicopter. A free-flying model, built in 1934, propelled by a small two-stroke engine brought the promise of success.

Hiller Hornet

Thumbnail
The Hiller YH-32 Hornet (company designation HJ-1) was an American ultralight helicopter built by Hiller Aircraft in the early 1950s. It was a small and unique design because it was powered by two Hiller 8RJ2B ramjet engines mounted on the rotor blade tips. Versions of the HJ-1 Hornet were built for the United States Army and the United States Navy in the early 1950s. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

HillerCopter-XH44

Thumbnail
The XH-44 was the first Hiller Helicopter, like MOST Hillers, had a coaxial rotor blade system. It is the smallest model in the Fiddlers Green Helicopter Collection. Looks kinda like a giant bug..Probably sounded like one too. The 44 was the year it flew.

The helicopter had come of age. Igor Sikorsky and his merry band of engineers developed a powerful and stable all weather helicopter and there was only better to come..The S-51 was long and lovely as is this cardmodel.. Two sizes and several versions.. Two are the red and blue company versions.

Sikorsky S-55

Thumbnail
The first BIG helicopter Sikorsky built and the first one tailored utility as well as for war. It could easily carry 10 soldiers to combat and transport 6 returning stretchers of wounded.

Sikorsky S-64 Sky Crane

Thumbnail
The Sky Crane is a fire fighting marvel seen all over the world in the news. Comes with a couple water containers and a EVEN a HOUSE to lug around.
