The 6th Day's Whispercraft™ 'Double X Charter'

Ask me what's my favorite imaginary helo from the movies, and I'll say: Whispercraft in a heartbeat. Remember the movie The 6th Day, starring none other than an ex- California governor when he was still only a blockbuster household name... Well, the helo he was flying in the movies was called the Whispercraft. I've always found that design to be original, beautiful and quite convincing. See for yourselves!

I forgot about this one! I love this design, and I can't help but wonder what it would look like in military use. I think about that since the co.ckpit is shaped like that on most military tandem-seat helicopters.

Also that's a very informative webpage you have! Good job on it! thumbsup.gif

Thanks, Stingray! Just realized that the Fantastic Plastic model could be done in military colors. Here's the decal sheet for it...

Hmmm, sounds like a good 'What If?' opportunity.

NASA'S S-72 RSRA and DARPA's X Wing project spring to mind
