Well the doing the flying bits for the Man with golden gun car looks quite do-able, using a cessna skymaster kit as the donor for the conversion.
Now look what you're done.......started ideas :laughing-rolling:

Now the trick would be to make Chitty a flying model - all that weight on those stumpy little wings and tiny little rotors! :think:

Pack number 2 has arrived :-)

Which means more mods!

First up for experimenting is the rib bracing.

I grabbed my trusty Dremel and a diamond cutting wheel:http://www.dremel.com/en-us/Accessories/Pages/ProductDetail.aspx?pid=545
The cutting wheels can be obtained from evilbay.
I marked out the fine tubing with length and two marks for the end slots:
Image

I then cut the tubing lengths, using a medium speed setting on the Dremel.
Image

The ends of the tubing was then carefully notched:
Image

Once the tubing was in place on the rib, I crimped the ends with pliers:
Image

Nano dabs of Pauls favourite :superlglue: was applied to secure the bracing:
Image

I did the same for the U shaped bracing as well, but being thinner metal, I dialled the speed down on the Dremel:
Image
Image

Now for the detachable spinner:

2 x 3mm neo magnets were :superlglue: to the spinner parts:
Image

Image

Even with a few mm of alloy in the way, two pairs of magnets still grip tight:
Image

Image
Image

I'll put in a third pair for symmetry once some new stocks have arrived from evilbay.

top notch bracing morrigan - mucho better than the suggested attachment from one side (and of course more prototypical as well!!)

You must have the patience of a saint to slot all those tiny bits of tube, to say nothing of a steady had :o

It Growed!

All the ribs supplied so far have been slotted in place:

I've used the supplied screws for now , I'll use bolts once everything is in its final place as they won't as easy to undo and replace as the screws.
