Helicopters and fire engines?
 
Any ideas for tutorials on these?

I did some fire engines, don't know about helicopters.

There is a hose curled up on the other side. I had best luck with the ladder when I encased grey with clear, then cut little pieces for the "rungs" (the far right one was done that way.)

Thanks Eileen, Looks like fun. I'll give it a try. Still mulling over helicopters, thinking maybe I could do the propellor with a wire fitting made seperately. These are not for Beads of Courage, but as possible fundraiser items for my DIL who is a volunteer fire fighter who gets dropped in by helicopter.

A rotating blade could be a clear disk with the blades inside it.

You might have to go all the way to encasing the whole helicopter in clear to safe guard the thin blades.

Just a thought.

I would love to see what you come up with.

Wow, good for her and the other volunteers!
If you wanted to wire them up maybe the blades could be a part of the wiring?

Show us what you come up with!
