Huey

I’ve had the intention for many years now to make a helicopter sculpture.  It wasn’t until finding the reciprocating mechanism from a large scroll saw that I actually found the inspiration to attempt it.  Some model airplane propellors at a flea market sealed the deal.  The little pilot is made from a garlic press and part of the coolant system from a refrigerator.

 

Materials:

Vacuum cleaner attachment, street sign mount, model plane propellors, garlic press, refrigerator parts, sliding door handles, radio equipment case, scroll saw mechanism, lamp globe, motors, LEDs, timer.
