Don't know if this is quite what you had in mind but these are what I've been playing about with.
If you want details, just ask.

Oh, I thought he just wanted micro models, since that's the forum it's in. Similarly, I thought they needed to be electric since that's what the forum is about.

Not at all mate. I just thought maybe I'd got the wrong end of the stick. No doubt someone will clarify the point. I too have other model photos, but only posted the micro ones.

For those interested, the details are as follows:-
The two profile models are depron with printed tissue decoration. Radio gear is from a Mini Aviator, motor is ex IR heli and the 'prop' is an IR heli tail rotor. Weights are around 12 grams and 10 grams. They flew okay but had too wide a turning circle for our indoor site. As evidenced by the slightly crumpled nose on the shoulder wing job.
The rubber style model is my solution to the limited flying area. At 17" span and using all Mini Aviator gear it weighs 7.9 grams. Covering is Mylar film and it's great fun to fly. From a hand launch it will circle nicely within the confines of our hall at little more than walking pace. If it starts getting too close to an obstacle, letting off the rudder on the away leg lets it fly straight for a while and then I just start circling again. If I get it wrong, shut throttle and allow it to drift to the floor before starting the whole process again.
The heli is the Micro X Apache, one of the easiest to fly 4 channel helicopters I've flown. As proof of this, the photo was taken by me, while I was flying the heli in a roughly 12x12 room - a double glazing showroom. No, I'm not a glazing salesman, the model shop I work in is situated above the glazing firm's office. Since my boss owns both, no-one objects when I 'test' the products.

Skunky,
Sorry, didn't realise it was 2009 where you live

3D,
Thanks mate, it's awful being all alone in a thread. I know from some I've started.

Actually, according to your avatar, you're from a long time ago (and a galaxy far, far away)

I only have one bird, Ester.
