Put Santa and Rudolf to flight


I started this build in another thread, but it wasn't my thread and the guy that started it never did post after his first post. I got worried about the situation and moved my build here.

This is what I am shooting for. I have had one person offer to help with the build. I welcome any advice or other participation. Make your children's or grandchildren's or just the neighborhood kid's Christmas a little special. Time is running out.

Here is some progress on my build.

I still need a Santa to drive the sleigh. Looking for a golly old elf with sleigh flying experience. If someone has a pic of a potential pilot for this sleigh please post.

It will, how far I don't know.

Here is a Santa I like. I would make his hand holding the reins and his hat blowing back.

I had a feeling he was one of us.

Good looking Santa... I think that may work.

I know, you're going to say that's Dalton in the green elf suit. I might as well get the jump on you.

Way to go Larry. Lookin good so far.

I am not sure what you are planning with the sleigh but it would
look good with just the sleigh structure on either side as you have it,
and then a single Santa in the middle with perhaps his large bag of
goodies hanging out the back as the rudder.

Also you definitely need one red LED on Rudolph's nose.
