It is on my list to do and I would have to, I would be the only kid on my block with one.  Grin

Cheers, Ray K.

Hope you build it!  It'd be a real hoot!

Here is a sketch of what I am thinking might work.

Certain changes would have to be made so that it would fly, it would be a co-axle machine, other than that it would be very close to the original design and it would be fairly quick to build, a laminated eggbeater type of frame, rotor tube, top and bottom plugs, base and the caveman gearing assembly, the hardest part would be making the articulated Barney.

After doing a little research and some quick calculations I believe it is possible to make this into a rubber powered model including an articulated Barney that would actually work the hand and foot pedals. Question if done would this be considered a scale model?
