Nex is a vicious long range fighter plane from the Empire of the Lion. The “seven-league” class planes are new development for the planned conquest of the Free State Islands. Unlike the mostly lumbering drones, this plane has a human pilot. The red and black colour scheme was her own idea.
Major Agatha Myriad-Brant is one of the top aces of the SPQR (The classified Air Force service section known only for those four letters). Leader of the Shark Squadron. Her mission logos proudly displayed beneath the cockpit.

So I finally got to build another plane. Having made quite a collection of books about aircraft I was just itching to go and build something.

Very nice work- the shape is a good balance between a plausible aircraft and a menacing sci-fi thing.  What element is the cockpit windshield?

It is this one. Certainly not my favourite kind, but it looked good on this build.

Impressive and cool plane design 'Peppermint', nice guns on the wings and that colour arrangement - red and black - nice and evil looking  ! :grin:

It's definitely a weird piece with limited use, but it's a perfect fit with the overall shape of this craft.  Great work!

Hello!

Another great plane from the Queen of Sky-Fi! The wing constructions is very interesting where you used the wedge curved car canopys on the outer ends. I also think you have made the perfect minifigure pilot for this plane. Looks a perfect unit of machine and pilot. :classic:

And furthermore, the Aquashark tail is a great theme cross-over. :classic:

Cheers,

~ Chris
