Not bad on the design. The props look a bit big for the size of the plane, but they're just so clever. You really nailed the tail logo. Nice job there. I'm not sure what the official/brick link name of the piece is, but it starts as a 2x2 round piece and tapers up to a 1x1 stud. It's a cone piece, probably 3 height. It would be good for the nose.

I tried that piece, didn't look the best. the nose of the plane was by far the most difficult part of the build.
I was hoping someone would notice the tail, it's my first cheese slope design :sweet:

A real cutie! I like the classic feeling to it. And indeed, using those swords for rotor blades is a win!  :laugh:
