On Saturday the 27th of June a few members of the Brickish association will be displaying LEGO models at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. The museum is currently celebrating the centenary of the first all-British flight, and because of this my good friend Ed Diment (Lego Monster on flickr) suggested that the two of us build an aircraft for each decade. I had many other things to build, but have so far managed to complete two aircraft.
A Sea Harrier representing the 'eighties
A Eurofighter Typhoon, representing the first decade of the 21st century
This shot shows the two of them together

I may have a reputation for building models of jets, but lately I have mainly been building helicopters and WW-II aircraft. The last time I actually built a jet before I started building these two is about 6 months ago and the last before that was in April 2008. I suspect I was actually getting a bit tired of building jets all the time, but this seemed like an excellent opportunity to have another go at it. Both of these jets have a quite distinctive look, which made them interesting to build. I'm quite happy with how they turned out and hope you'll like them to. If you're in the UK close to Manchester, you may want to drop in. Entrance to the museum is free!
