MOC: SkyFy Sparrowhawk

Recommended Posts

Goodbury Mechanicals is proud to present the Sparrowhawk, a new aeroplane utilising Jet-Propulsion! Designed with the aim to break the sound barrier, hopefully the first to do so. The plane has been put through its paces and will be ready to try for the speed record soon, our brave pilot is ready to take off. 

It has been a while since I built Sky-Fi, or added anything to the Goodbury product line. So here is the Sparrowhawk, I love to use dark tan and metallic shades. The speed champion hubcaps look great for vents and I used binoculars to create the pew-pews.

Top View, shows off the angles I used in construction, it is also useful to show off the printed/stickered tiles I used for flare.

Side view, shows off the sides of the jet engine. Unusually for me, I built this plane fuselage first. I most often create the engine/propulsion unit and put the wings and cockpit around it. It took me ages to decide the best engine type to use for the fuselage I had created. The "egg" parts make for a super mean looking engine that could power a plane to unknowable speeds.

The rear view of the jets. I love using the ninjago spinner crowns for planes, they just look so cool! 

I hope you enjoy my SkyFi MOC, it is a genre I love and one I have not shared a pane from in a long while. Comments etc are welcome. :classic:

That's a fierce little Sky-Fi build there! I really dig all those angular touches, and the usage of those metallic Elves' dragon eggs for the engines add a whole "Wunderwaffen" vibe to the build! Plus, those Speed Champions rims make for some sweet-looking turbines! :thumbup: :smug:

Great build.  Nice use of the Ninjago egg pieces and the spinner piece on the back work really well here.  The overall design is very interesting, from above kind of looks like a star.  The choice of tan I think is a really good idea as its not to bright but has enough color to not be boring either.

Thanks guys :grin: 

This MOC hung around for ages as I had a plan on the for the wings and the cockpit but without any ideas for the engine it just sat in a box with the parts I liked the look of until I got the eureka moment. Good job it came out how I (and you) like it.

Well, I do hope to see more Sky-Fi builds from you in the near future, as the genre really could use a revival amongst the fan community big time!!! :grin:
