About the V-22 Osprey project in Wikipedia
USMC variant, the MV-22B, is an assault transport for troops, equipment and supplies, capable of operating from ships or from expeditionary airfields ashore. It is replacing the Marine Corps' CH-46E and CH-53D. The V-22 will fly twice as fast, several times further, and with a heavier payload than the helicopters it replaces.
Here comes my inspiration for the craft.
In my Lego world this particular CV-22 is made from surplus parts in an remote Mediterranean island to be used by mercenaries operating in African region. The whole project is managed by John Frederick "The Footballer" from Marko Bay town. Initially I had CV-22 in Merc 2000 RPG back in 90s as main transport for our crew of mercenaries.
This is WIP but I decided to share with you what I have until now. There are to be replaced some white color bricks to new light grey. Maybe I also change bricks to panels for the hull. Back wings are missing and interior has not been done to the full operations specs. This is my first MOC post here and first plane MOC.
I stay waiting for critiques and suggestions.
It can take in a car developed specially for the plane.
Flying low with regular plane mode.
I have also some pics about the real plane from US Navy website but probably I should not post them here.
