As the title says, here you can see my version of the most beautiful vehicle of the entire Indy series: the Flying Wing.

Here is a pic, that links to the gallery (when public):

I know there are many versions of this plane, not last the Official LEGO Indiana Jones one. I just wanted to try and build it the way I see it.
I had some reference pic from the net, and many of them changed in some particoular: one had 6 blades in the propellers, one had 4 propellers, one had the propellers to the front and most to the back... , and so on. This is as near to the Raiders of the Lost Ark I could get, considering the pieces I have, and the small features I wanted to stress (like the working landing gear).

I hope you like it :blush: .

Awesome job on that  :classic: I love that vehicle. It's one of my all-time favorite scenes in the movie. Just add the German Mechanic, and you're good to go :wink:

I like it! Though I feel kinda sadd that the gun turret is missing or I can't see ut. I really like the cabin, though tis a bit too modern, but all in all, a nice model. :thumbup:

I'll tell you what George's problem was when writing this film. He was so preoccupied with whether or not he could…he didn’t stop to think if he should. That’s…that’s chaos.

Quote

The moral of Indy is... "Don't get in a swordfight with a Russian chick while hightailing it through the South African jungle while your mom is driving the truck because she will look away from the nonexistent road to criticize your footwork and accidentally cause some oddly bulbous jungle flora to whack you repeatedly right in the junk."

Apparently Rachel Dawes was also using cheap parlor tricks to hide her true identity in Batman Begins.

Do you mean that blocky thing in the rear of the middle section with two bars/barrels srouting from it :look: ? 'Cause, you know, I seem to see it... :wink:


As for the German mechanic, unfortunately I lack a plain flesh torso to apply my own custom decal on :hmpf_bad: .

I'm not too sure about the cockpit, though I'm not sure I can think of a better solution. Beyond that it looks pretty good.

Thanks Athos. Yes, the cockpit had to be a compromise solution, since I couldn't find a better one.

Yes, there is red on the fins, as background to the nazi symbols:

awesome! :classic: i was going to make this with the crappy wing piece from the CITY passenger plane along with a camp and the fight and the trucks, but theres a lot of things i say i do... im a lazy MOCer... :tongue:

anyways, the cockpit is very accurate. maybe in the future you could add some gunner bubbles.  :classic:  also, i think a fight with Indy and the boxer guy would be cool.  :thumbup:

First of all, Welcome to EB :thumbup:  (I always forget to pass in the 'My name is' forum :look: ).
It took me about 2 hours from the first mouse click of the reference images research to the completed model.

Well done! The Flying Wing is a vehicle I've never perfectly seen replicated in Lego, but you've done a fine job. The cockpit choice piece is great I think, not entirely accurate but one of the best I've seen. The red at the tail is a good touch, and everything seems to be in good proportion too. If there was one thing to change is that I would bulk it up a bit, that way you get a bigger plane and an easier way to make a proper turret too. Other than that, great work and thanks for sharing!

I'm waiting to get my hands on Peril in Peru, to have more wing pieces to bulk it up :wink:

Yeah!! Looks great!  :wub: I have wondered why TLC didn't make their own Flying Wing, but it seems they have, or? But since TLC sets use to be a bit 'bulky' I think your Flying Wing looks way better. I like the cockpit but I can't see the MG Turret  :sceptic:  well well nothing to bother about! Well done!!   :sweet:

Great piece of work, LuxorV  :thumbup:

I love it very much. IMO, there is nothing wrong this set, and I think you have done a very great job.  :sweet:
The plane is crafted in a very smart way, and from that picture, I can see it looks pretty big.

Furthermore, in order to illustrate a parking lot for this baby, you inverted the old curve road baseplates. I think this is a very smart move. Now, it's time to bring in Marion and the German Boxer.  :tongue:

As long as I know, the only 'official' LEGO version for now is the one in the Indiana Jones Original Adventures. But I wouldn't be surprised to see it released next year: like SW, they already have the models ready (as they built them for the game), and they'll probably release them as actual sets. Fingers crossed :classic: .

if you have the game and a bunch of spare parts, do what i do.

turn the game on, and just build by what you see.

it helps that you can rotate the plane on the game and see it from different angles.

If you make an account on www.bricklink.com, then you can buy a bunch of parts from your country, usually for a low price.

That's another thing I do, or try to trade bricks with friends.

I still hope they make it a set.
