Ever since I bought 6862 Superman vs Power Armour Lex, I wonder if it would be possible to build an invisible plane for Wonder Woman with a Pick a Brick wall cup of 1x2 transclear plates and what little other transclear parts I had.  I started snapping 1x2 plates together one November evening and an all transclear invisible jet plane appeared.  Now she has something to evade/attack Power Armour Lex with instead of being in his grasp like a damsel in distress.

Ha ha, couldn't resist. Your MOC is cool, thanks for sharing.

^I cant see yours. ^^ I like it but it stops a little abruptly at the front.

That's the point. :laugh:

Nice work, Spock! Do you have any more clear cheese slopes to smooth out the angles of the wings? I think you can get them from Pick-a-Brick as well.

That looks neat! Isn't there a MOC of one in one of those LEGO idea books or the new Batman encyclopedia?

Either way, it looks great! Keep up the good work. I wish the pick a brick near here had 1x2 clear plates.

Thanks.  I could raid my Boeing 777 Dreamliner for clear cheese.

Yup, yours is definitely better.  It is amazing that it is really invisible.  Where did you find the invisible Lego.  Gotta get me some.  :laugh:

Thanks.  I don't know if there is a MOC of one in the idea books or Batman encyclopedia.   I don't have those books but it would be cool to see it.

I'll see if I can make the front pointy with either 1x2 plates and/or 1x1 cheese.

This is great.  The best wonderwoman plane I've seen yet.  You've inspired me to finally go looking through my own trans clear box to see if I can build my own.  Well done.

Really nice, Lego would (probably) never make it as a set though, but isn't that what MOC's are for? Great job. :classic:

I'm not ecstatic about the cockpit, but a fun build nonetheless.

I like your concave wings.  They look good.   Interesting use of 2x4x2 windscreens for the cockpit.  I would never have thought of using them like that.  :classic:

Thanks. I like the shape they give me. I just don't love the obstructed view of the cockpit that this build gives. Trying to come up with something better, but my limited supply of trans clear is making that tough.

Awesome. I was trolling bricklink for pieces to make the invisible jet, but so cool to see what you made with "normal" bricks. Well done.

Wonder Woman's invisible plane looks great. I think the wings look quite well-detailed. :sweet:

Spock and Wonderpuddle, I love both of those. I'm working on one as a gift for a friend, but I'm throwing in a few white pieces here and there. It's a big cheat, but time is running out. :)

I do hope LEGO makes an official set someday, but I won't hold my breath.

I have a big old tub of invisible LEGO, most of us do.  Only one little problem, I can't see them to build anything, so they just sit, gathering invisible dust.

BTW: The airplane is really good! Just A few more cheese slopes and it will be great!

Just build more is my plan for 2014! (Good luck with that!)
