There is always someone who has a bigger chopper than you..

This full size jetranger dwarfed by this MI26, how about that as a scale project.

Was emailed this, could not believe the size difference.

Great Photo....

That is an amazing shot... you just do not think about how big/or small some of these machines really are..
THe first time I got up close to a Jet Ranger, it was in a museum and it was on the short skids.. I found myself looking through the top window into the cockpit without having to strech out!!!!!
Thanks for sharing..

Thanks for the comments.

I was sent it in email and as I am a fan of the jetranger/Longranger I could not beleive how small compared the huge machine.

I am amazed at that cockpit, it is massive, thanks for posting that Brokenlink.

I wonder if there is any scale fuse available of that ? That would be a massive scale model.

Matt a 1/4 scale would be 33ft long hehe that is huge, so 1/8 about 16 1/2ft , 1/16 about 8ft 4" on a 2M ish rotor disc ,but that wound not sound saying its 1/16 scale people would think it was trex 450 size , but when they see it it would be huge

You looking forward to work Tom ? Have a good day and take it easy

Chat soon.

what are these helies used for ? Passenger/Cargo ?
I had never seen one until i was sent, I have seen some big helies from Russia but never as big as this.

The downdraft must be immense.

Hi Matt....great picture

That will carry about 20 tonne of cargo or circa 80 troops. But now I'm wondering how many 206's it would carry

Check out this video

Watch at YouTube
