  3. Hi everyone, This is my P-51 Mustang Racing MOC. It is made out of 401 official LEGO pieces. Blue Bull is 28.7 centimeters long (11.3 inches), its wingspan is 30.7 centimeters (12.1 inches), it weighs 263 grams (9.3 ounces) and its top speed is just over 400 km/h (over 250 mph)! A single pilot can sit in the comfortable cockpit and take control of the plane any time. Although Blue Bull has an aerodynamic design, its mainframe’s strength is not compromised! The model is designed with agility, durability and playability in mind, so in case of an accident, the plane is sturdy enough to withstand any drop from the height of up to 30 centimeters (12 inches), without any part breaking off. The model can be easily and carelessly swooshed by holding any part – main body, nose, wings, tail or even the propeller. Plane’s nose, wings and tail are connected at a slight angle. Sideways and top-down building techniques are implemented to achieve the appropriate design of the nose and tail. Nose has a smooth narrowing shape towards the propeller, while tail also narrows towards the endpoint. Main wings also have a slanted design – rear line of the main wings is angled in two points, contributing to the overall appealing shape and leaving enough room for the front landing gear. Front landing gear can be deployed or retracted, but rear landing gear is fixed. If you like the plane and would like to see more photos, visit my Flickr album. And if you especially like the model, consider supporting it on Ideas, under a title "Blue Bull"!
  4. The aircraft Completing its maiden flight on February 9th, 1969 the Boeing 747 went into production in 1970 and has been so for more than 50 years. Over the course of time many different variants of the airliner were produced. Aside from its major use in passenger transport it was used to carry the Space Shuttle, used as an airborne telescope and most recently used to launch rockets into orbit. Its iconic shape with the distinctive hump that accommodates the cockpit and the raised passenger deck has become a classic symbol for all jumbo jets and airborne passenger transport alike. With the aircraft retiring from service soon I thought it would be a great chance to submit this project as a tribute to this iconic airliner. The model While not being based on a specific variant of the 747 this model is meant to be a general tribute to this awesome marvel of engineering. The creation is built out of 603 parts (including stand) and the aircraft measures approximately 37 cm L x 33 cm W x 10.5 cm H (14.6" L x 13" W x 4.1" H). It includes many details such as printed decals representing the passenger windows and the doors, the four turbofan engines, removable landing gear and a sleek stand for dynamic display. In combination with the size, the stand and the stylish red and orange livery would make it a great swooshable desk display-piece for any fan of LEGO and aviation. This creation was built using Mecabricks and rendered in Blender but all building techniques have been tested with real bricks as well. Feel free to check out this 3D-view of the creation on Mecabricks and the high resolution images on flickr. If you like what you see then please consider heading over to LEGO Ideas and supporting. With your help this could become an official LEGO set!
  5. Few months have gone since I built my last alternative model from set 42106 and I got desire to build another one. The first model was Pullback Racer that I built for TC18 contest - more about it is here. Then I built Pullback Plane - more about it is here. And finally now I've built Pullback Helicopter. I planned to build it even before plane but I rejected it because I didn't see the way how to connect both rotor blades with pullback motor and landing gear. Set 42106 contains only 5 bevel gears and I usually use 6 for helicopter (three pairs). Later I find solution for problem with missing gear - I saved one bevel gear by connecting axle for tail rotor blade to another pair of bevel gears that transmit motion from horizontal axle to vertical. The only con of this solution is low possition of axle for tail rotor - see picture of mechanism. The last issue, I had to solve, was possition of center of gravity - it was too close to tail so helicopter made wheelies. I prevent them by adding structure under tail rotor blade. Do you think it was all for now? No, it wasn't. I've got one more idea, much crazier idea - I wanna build Pullback Steam Engine! I focused more to functionality than its look so proportions are not correct but it really works. Pullback motor is connected to rear axle and it drives also middle axle thanks to piston-rods. Front axle with small wheels works just like stabilizer (I had to move driven axles too far to rear behind center of gravity and whole vehicle would fall on its front without small wheels). Finally I added optional flame on chimney (smoke would be better but I didn't find any in donor set). I plan to make video of steam engine in action but it will not be anytime soon. Any comments and criticism are welcomed.

    FS200 Skybird/Seabird

    A while ago I created a small minifigure scale plane inspired by the classic Cessna 172. I built an ordinary version as well as a seaplane. You can check out a 3D-view on Mecabricks and I also created custom instructions which you can find on Rebrickable.
  9. This is a continuation of this project, which seemed to be quite thoroughly shelved, but recently got some new traction. Well, it's been a while... Since then I've changed few jobs, moved to another country and managed to bring the whole thing with me not losing any significant bits, except, maybe, LiPo charger. A lot of information is given in original post, but the short recap - this is an attempt to make a flying machine with 99% LEGO airframe. The powertrain and control system are, of course, totally non-LEGO, but, you know, the goal justifies the means... Though actual flying is not very likely, I did everything in my power to make it as close to the real flying thing as possible. At least, it should spectacularly burst into bricks :) Anyway, people call me crazy for this, but I don't mind. Let's have fun together :) Ah, yes, in order to keep the bricks together, almost everything is glued, except various fairings, access hatches and so on. Wing, tail fin, nose are also detachable. Since the restart, I reworked the flaps and literally a week ago I've found those Lego-compatible servo motors (like those used in this nice walking robot) Before that I planned to use micro motors with separate potentiometer, standard servo controller and H-bridge for higher Lego motor voltage. This even worked, but the torque of the micro motor is really tiny (about 1.5 N*cm) and that bothered me. New servos are sporting more comfortable 5 N*cm and also making the whole contraption a little simpler, also allowing for bigger ailerons. Anyway, the flaps are still operated by pair of micro motors with the same setup - potentiometer, servo controller, H-bridge. They drive the linear actuator via simple reduction gear and flap position should be read directly from the flap. Also, the Lego-compatible servo comes with the short axle and doesn't really fit. Would be much better if they make a axle hole instead... Next thing that got love and attention was the pneumatic system for the landing gear. While it is not complete, the pipes were installed and valves tested. Later it should be controlled by Arduino with few pressure sensors and more H-bridges, just because of complexity and small space available. Thing that I personally like and proud of is that all the machinery is hidden under the floor :) Few more shots of the wings - Next big thing will be finalizing the motor/propeller combo. I've made a thrust measuring rig fir this :) To actually start selecting the motors and propellers I need the battery charger instead of the one that was lost, so, now I'm waiting for it to arrive as well as for some electronic components for Arduino and another Lego-compatible servo, this time with 20 N*cm torque which will control the elevator. Having such big servo also allows making a bigger elevator which seems rather important. I've made a great progress during the Christmas holidays, I had a two week vacation and with the city in the lockdown it was really enjoyable way to spend the time. Now the holidays are over and despite the missing pieces, parts and components are about to arrive, I expect the building pace to slow down. Expect few videos of working components. Thanks for your attention and keep calling me crazy :)

    [MOC] Air Canada 737 MAX

    I recently finished building a LEGO City/Minifig scale plane that offers more details than your usual airliner. I have submitted my creation on LEGO Ideas. See more pictures and vote for it here! My model also has its own display stand which can also be used to display the minifigs. This plane is built using brick-built solutions instead of relying too much on pre-fabricated plane pieces. This plane has quite a nice cabin on the inside and can accommodate many minifigures. To see pictures of the Economy AND Business class cabins, please see my LEGO IDEAS project page.

  13. I was looking for LEGO Concorde designs but not very much came up in such a small scale so I thought I might as well give it a try. It comes complete with bendable nose cone, retractable landing gears (front and back), moveable back wing flaps (thanks again, mini fig pants...!) and the optional flame FX for... historical accuracy... . . .!? And as always you can find more pics here and if interested in a cutesy little Concorde to swoosh around the full set & instructions are available here. I hope you like my small sized interpretation of one of aviation history's most iconic aircraft. Thanks & have fun! (And many thanks to ukbajadave for explaining to a noob how to implement more pics here!)
  14. I created a little plane for the Johnny Thunder CMF. It's actually a revamp of set 5911. I hope you like it!
  15. Hi, It has been a while since I posted a MOC, but I have not been sitting idle. Here is my latest creation, a LEGO Technic replica of the infamous F14A Tomcat: It is as densily packed as I possibly could with features. It has seven electrified functions (driven by one M-motor), six pneumatic functions and four manual functions. Driven by one M-motor and using a manual gearbox the following functions are electrified: - The engine turbines (directly coupled to the M-motor) - The rotating Gatling gun on the port side - A small pneumatic pump - The canopy - The landing gear - The eight landing gear bay doors - The main adjustable wings (in the picture above they are in the low speed, extended position) Next to that there are six pneumatic valves controlling the following functions: - Switch between the internal small vacuum pump and the external large vacuum pump - The bleed doors in the air-intakes of the engines - The delta wings at the side of the air-intakes - The arresting hook - The front and rear flaps on the main wings - The two air brakes on the main wings and the three air brakes at the end of the fuselage The plane also features a couple of manual functions: - A knob to control the pitch of the aircraft. The rear horizontal wings and the joystick are controlled with this knob. - A knob to control the roll & jaw of the aircraft. The rear horizontal wing, the vertical control surfaces and the joystick are controlled with this knob. If the landing gear is down, the front landing gear is steered with this knob as well. A special differential control mechanism is used to combine both pitch and roll control and feed only one signal to each wing. - The nacelles that contain the turbo engines can be opened and the engines can be taken out. - A double lever to activate the ejection seats. The canopy is ejected at the same time as well. This model is available as a limited edition exclusive set on my website. Finally some fun facts: The model weighs around 4 kilograms and is just shy of 4000 parts It is 87 cm long, 101 / 66 cm wide (main wings open / swept back) and 33.5 cm high when put on its stand It has ten small pneumatic cylinders and nine shock absorbers It has 549 axles, 110 gears and 111 panels Most of the functions are color coded so that you can distinguish them during the building process Comments and questions are welcome as always. Leg godt, Jeroen Ottens
  16. Two years ago I built freight helicopter out of set 42074 and few weeks ago I built another alternative model from this set - propeller plane. When you are moving it around it whirls its propeller. I enjoyed building it very much - it took me just three nights to build it and I like its bright color scheme. Building instructions are available at buildinst. Any comments are welcomed.

    Help with a Lego build

    I’m in the plane stage of a lego project I have the blueprint to make a RC scale model of German Horton 229 from WWII. I thought it be cool to make it out Lego bricks (after seeing someone a very large replica of Air Force One ). The only problem I’m having is how the engine are designed into the plane. I want to be authentic on my design. I’m hoping not to ruffle any feather by asking for help with project. I just think it’s a pretty cool plane. I attached some pics of the real Horton 229 as it sit in the Smithsonian to be restored for the museum.. again I hope it ok to post these considering it still has all the original marking on the plane. I got those off the google to show the design of the engines. again I apologize if I offended anyone
  18. After watching the 2019 "Midway" movie, I tried to build a technic version of SBD Dauntless. I wanted this project to be a light and quick one, so I decided not to build the plane from scratch, instead, I wanted to mod from some exist MOCs. Then I found this master piece plane MOC on RB: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/150206-aircraft-fighter-bomber-mkii-lego-technic/&tab=comments#comment-2791893 https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-9602/NikolayZubov/aircraft-fighter-bomber-mkii-lego-technic/#comments It's @Nikolay's wonderful fighter bomber MK II, a beautiful fictional plane packed with tons of features. This MOC has more than enough features I want to add to my SBD, so I removed some of them and adjusted the shape of the plane to make it look like a SBD of course, and here is the result: Featurewise it has(left over from original): Control surfaces controlled from cockpit: Ailerons Flaps (Unfortunately, it doesn't have any of the SBD's famous giant speed brakes) Elevators Rudder, connected directly to the tail wheel Other functions: Retractable landing gear; Wing folding mechanism, I know real SBD can't fold its wings, I keep this function to save space.... Rear machine gun Central retractable bomb pylon Sliding openable cockpit Some details: The olive green parts introduced by 42110 fits very well as the interior color here. The white belly: A closer look at the bomb: For paintjob , I chose the SBD-5's typical paintjob instead of the SBD-3 which appears in the movie. Some comparison with real SBDs: In memory of the already dissembled prototype: More pictures Thanks for watching, hope you like it. Many thanks again to the original MOC author: @Nikolay
  19. I’ve been wondering for a while what on earth Creator Expert 10269 is going to be, and as I could find barely anything about it, I thought this thread would be the way to find out more. 10269 (Vehicle D2C Set) is described on Brickset simply as that, with absolutely nothing else to tell us what it is. Does anybody know anything about it at all, apart from ‘vehicle’ and ‘creator expert’? It could be a train, a car (though unlikely as the Ford Mustang has just been released), a plane, a ship, a shuttle or something completely new. The only thing I can possibly think of is an Emerald Night 10th anniversary rerelease, though I can’t see why they would do that. Please share your thoughts on this set below. UPDATE: LEGO has revealed the Creator Expert vehicles range, 10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy! 1023 pieces US $99.99 – CA $139.99 – DE €89.99 – UK £84.99 – FR €94.99 – DK 799DKK – AUS $159.99 AUD Available on the 1st of August, with VIP early access from the 17th of July.

  20. Here's my entry to the polybag contest - Jai's Water Plane: Kai's Water Plane is based on the City Police Water Plane (30359), which was released in 2018 as part of the Mountain Police sub theme. In addition to the colour changes, I've added about 20 parts to the original parts count of 48. The main changes were to the floats and the wings. The swords ended up being in a precarious position, but I couldn't not include them. Kai will just have be careful when he's getting in and out of the seat! Hope you like it!

    60177 Airshow jet + F 16

    I started triying to build an F 16 but it didnt come out as I expected, however it provided simple ideas that, scaled down could be aplied to a little set I had laying arround, a colorfull little plane that was about to be dismantled but with these improvements it turned into a silly cute and sort of <insert that tiresome argument> version of its otherwise agresive counterpart. 1 by Nom Carver, en Flickr 3 by Nom Carver, en Flickr 5 by Nom Carver, en Flickr 7 by Nom Carver, en Flickr Here is my first faild atempt: 56606385_378741259637065_6522137649791107072_n by Nom Carver, en Flickr 56618794_378741346303723_4619562833829429248_n by Nom Carver, en Flickr And the set I started with: JET1 by Nom Carver, en Flickr

    [MOC] Kestrel - SkyFi Plane

    The Kestrel is another of the Goodbury Mechanical's faster planes. A jet-propeller hybrid created by the engineers and innovators on the path to a true jet plane. Goodbury are leading the way on development of super fast and manoeuvrable planes and one day hope to create a true Jet Plane. This is one of my "classic" builds: Create a whacking great engine/motive element and then strap the other bits to it. I love playing with the more metallic parts for building a super powerful looking motor. With that built, I added in somewhere for a pilot to sit and some wings so it would go in the sky. This top view shows the propeller and motor through to the back jet, the whole construction is virtually a cylinder from end to end. The wings, cockpit and canopy were added a while after I had built the engine, so I chose a good colour contrast for the more brooding metallics and blacks and a canopy that added another splash. The wings were set up to match the brutal look of the engine. I hope you enjoy this SkyFy build of mine.
  23. Hi, this is my creation :) I have other pictures, but I have used all 100kb for that image, what should I do to add other files? Thanks if you answer me :)
  24. Hi
  25. The De Havilland DHC-2 often called Beaver is probably the most famous and beloved bush plane ever built. With its distinct look, flight characteristics and sound it's instantly recognizable. It was produced from 1947 to 1967 by De Havilland Canada. Despite being out of production for many years now a lot of planes are still in use. If you want to find out more about the real plane click here. With the help of gabriele.zannotti I built the DHC-2 out of Lego. Features: True to original plane with details such as exhaust, floats, decorated cockpit, nice looking and fresh colour scheme, window prints on the fuselage, radial engine print, antennas and lights on the wings Retractable landing gear that folds into the floats Accessories namely first aid kit, a mail package, a letter ,a fuel canister, a safety buoy and a rope to tie up the plane A small piece of land with a wooden dock, a fir tree and an air sock 2 minifigures, a pilot and a hermit who lives in the wilderness with his dog So what are you waiting for? Support this project on Lego Ideas and with some luck you can soon take your plane and deliver the hermit's mail into the wilderness! This model was built in mecabricks and rendered using blender. Special thanks to gabriele.zannotti for making the awesome pictures! It doesn't only need a good model to make a great project but also a cool way of presenting it. Make sure to check out his flickr account for more amazing images! Thanks for checking out our article. Make sure to support, comment and share! This is a collaboration between gabriele.zannotti and saabfan.
