I'm not sure if this project belongs here or not but you gotta admit it's cool as all get out, defiantly going on my future projects list. I see a motorized rotor blade in 1/25 scale with figures just like in the picture.

YES! very cool build project indeed. There is probably more similar parts available in 1/35 for a design like this though

Not really relevant tgo a model project, but the whole concept for that vehicle is flawed, IMHO. It needs to be lightweight to fly, which makes for a poor combat vehicle. Unarmored HUMVEES were poorly suited for conditions in Iraq, and those things are already heavy. Something rugged enough to carry armor and drive over rough terrain will be too heavy for an aircraft. If someone were to suggest using it in rear areas that are "safe", I'd say we already have vehicles for that.
