The tilt-rotor is the main attraction with rotors that tilt (obviously!), a working winch with a hook and a small rear hatch under the tailplane that opens into a small cargo hold. It is a fairly straightforward build with the trickiest part securing the string for the winch which, with my ham fists is a bit of a struggle! It's a nice design and sturdy enough to take a bit of a bashing from small hands. The only little problem is my usual moan of too many stickers!

The logging equipment is simple but looks good with a log storage crate and a log gripper for use when chopping the logs with either the circular saw or the chainsaw. 40 brown round 2 x 2 bricks are used as the logs which I think is the most of that particular part ever used in a city set. This means the logs can be 'cut' down to any length.

The other is having a coffee and waiting for his new quad
to be delivered!
|Ahh, here it is, right on time!|
|I may have my quad but I still haven't finished my coffee!!|
The pilot's torso is only found in this set and the Cargo Terminal with most of the rest of the pieces being fairly common, the exception being the aircraft front and windscreen which are only found in the Coast Guard helicopter (Set 60013)
Overall a very nice set with good playability and not too bad price wise.
