blue thunder model at sonyblue-thunderRC_BT_SonyI present the model Blue Thunder used in the 1983 film Blue Thunder - Imgur(1)Further to the last post regarding the fate of the Blue Thunder R/C helicopters – here are a few images culled from Google (apologies for the quality) showing an alternative model currently on display in the Sony offices.  Notable differences between this and the Planet Hollywood version are the stabilizing paddles for the rotors, missing rung on the left hand skid and the addition of a Murphy pilot figure. (all of which leads me to believe it was used in the final Cochrane confrontation scenes).  One sad parallel is the treatment of the cannon, although the salvation in this instance is that at least its still present.
