I have it. it is a manufacturer's design prototype model of a flying scout variant of our beloved outlaw jeep, the M151. The model is about a foot long.
It is in the brown box in rear of photo
I tried to find some more photos but don't have them with me.
I posted some pics on the G838 via but they went bust and the images are lost {imageposter- not the G}
BTW the info sheet inside the wooden crate indicates the proposal was developed by Nortronics-Systems Support,
flight time 153 seconds
The large tank is for compressed air that drives the rotors, The air pressure is built using a small turbine engine, under the air tank.weight 4,000 lbs.
I have a massive collection of aircraft models, original issue not the new stuff and toys, not the kits but metal toys like Dinky etc. and about 1000 government issue identification models from WW2 and the Cold War.
