Ralph Savelsberg‘s latest helicopter can fly higher and carry more cargo than any of his previous helicopters. In contrast to some of his earlier work, the cockpit glass is entirely brick-built — and built well indeed! Here’s Ralph’s Chinook side by side with his earlier CH-46E Sea Knight:

Heavy helicopters seem to be popular lately — you know, those big ones that go whup, whup, whup. McZargåld of CATpit Construction treats us to a tiny little helicopter named “Aggresseur” that I suspect makes an adorable little buzzing noise. Vive la France!
Perhaps it’s the very uniformity and consistency of RAMM LEGO creations that define the good ones. But occasionally, someone posts a creation that’s fundamentally different from the rest, making it great. Tim “Spook” Zarki takes RAMM in a new direction with this fantastic helicopter: Spatzenfalke may mean “sparrow hawk”, but the nose and tail remind Continue reading →
Peter Edwards was commissioned to build a Eurocopter Tiger ARH for Australian Aerospace, the company building the real thing. As you can see from the minifig in the photo, the LEGO Eurocopter is absolutely huge. It’s over 51″ (130 cm) long, with a rotor span of more than 44″ (113 cm). Peter designed the helicopter Continue reading →
Mike Psiaki joins the RAMM fun with a brachiosaurus in RAMM livery: And a bonus Jurassic Park helicopter:
Brian Kescenovitz (Mondaynoodle) modeled the Apache Longbow helicopter in an accurate and detailed miniature creation. Check out the accurate resemblance to the real life model. To be able to craft this 1:64 scale model truely reflects proficient skills with the brick.
I think it’s come up a couple times. Ralph Savelsberg continues to amaze the world not just with the quality of his creations but the sheer quantity. The kicker is obvious from the picture above. He keeps many of them built! His latest aircraft include an AH-1W SuperCobra and F-5E Tiger: US Navy Sea King Continue reading →
Doctor Sinister‘s “Tabletown Army” is a formidable force, matched only by Magnus Lauglo’s armor or Ralph Savelsberg’s overwhelming air superiority. Dr. S goes studless in his latest project — applying an unstudded sheen to the entire Tabletown Army: Okay, that’s more adorable than formidable, but it was my favorite of the bunch. If you’re looking Continue reading →
Magnus Lauglo adds some serious hardware to his semi-futuristic military with a pair of Jaguar A1 main battle tanks (above — love the arctic camo!) and Dragon helicopter gunship (below).
Constructed for a competition on the Russian-language LEGO fan site DoubleBrick.ru, Brickshelfer ZED‘s Ka-50 “Black Shark” helicopter transforms into a “Night Hunter” Autobot: Decorated in Ukrainian livery, ZED’s Autobot looks ready to leap into action and protect humanity.
Ralph Savelsberg latest military vehicles are a pair of helicopters — a CH-46 Sea Knight (above) and a Mi-24 “Hind”. Click the pics to check them out on Flickr.

In the wake of the Transformers movie (and games), we see quite a few lego iterations of the robots. Adrian Drake’s Blackout is certainly one of the better. It looks great in both helicopter mode and bot mode: Read about it on Adrian’s brickfrenzy.com or comment it on his flickr stream.
