This Awesome Model Helicarrier From The Avengers Actually Flies

By Tom Pritchard on at

We saw the flying delorean back in March, but now Russian model maker extraordinaire, Native118, is back with a vengeance with a scale model of the S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier from superhero team up blockbuster the Avengers.

Back in July, Wired worked out that the actual helicarrier wouldn't be able to fly with such small rotors, but the same can't be said about this incredible little model. The video shows it whizzing through the air like a scene from the all time classic Thunderbirds. But most importantly is that smidgen of realism (as much realism as a flying aircraft carrier can have) -- this thing also floats.

Unfortunately, this is a custom made model and not available in shops, but, dammit, I'd buy one if it was. [YouTube via i09]

Plus to keep you entertained a little while longer, here's a working model of the Hunter Killer Drone from the Terminator series in action too.
