The hanger and ground are made from cardboard. It was painted in emulsion. The battery operated model helicopters are Sikorsky SH-3 Sea Kings and were made in the seventies by Dinky Toys. Dinky named the model, Sea King Helicopter number 724. When I bought the helicopters - from various sources - not one of them worked. I got them all back to working order. The U.F.O. is an old novelty fibre optic rotating light ornament - minus the fibre optics. I added helicopter sound effects. The little plastic military truck was pulled by a cotton thread. Also, the helicopter 'spotlight effect' was created using a torch (flashlight).

Awesome video! I had one of these Dinky copters in a lot a while ago, but I couldn't persuade the motor to work!
