And pretty old indeed...Definitely one of the best planes ever built (if not the best). When I built my Tomcat 4.5 years ago, I only had  three Technic sets and the functionality is really terrible compared to this one.

I know the pieces fit.

Wow...that is awesome!  I love aviation themed builds.  

I like all the small pneumatic cylinders too.  :thumbup:

Is there any video of the functions?

Instantly recognizable. The lines & shapes are very realistic.

Hi,

Thanks for all the kind comments. It has been quite some time since I finished this model, but I lost my original Flickr account so that's why I posted it again recently.

Oh My God!  My flabber is well and truly gasted. Where on earth do you start when building something this complex.

We mere mortals can only sit back and look in awe at what you've achieved and can only aspire to be this good.

AMAZING, TRULY AMAZING!!!

The long answer to your question where to start is:
I wanted to build this plane when I was 16, but at that time I simply didn't have enough lego.
After my dark ages I started to collect in earnest and I tried to build it again. I finished a black version that was a lot smaller than this one. It was not looking that pretty though. It did get me a job at Lego as a designer :)
There I learned the fine details of building with Lego, so after I quit I built this version in my home. In the end it has taken me more than 10 years to complete the model...

My short answer would be: It starts with pursueing your dreams
