saabfan posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingThe 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!
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.
Due to financial restrictions, I can't build real models as of yet, so LDD will have to do, I've made several things in the past but this is the first time I decided to showcase a model online Being an aviation fan, I decided to build an airliner using a combination of the big '<insert that tiresome argument>' parts for the cockpit and tail-cone and smaller parts for the wings and tailplane. It contains more details than you would get in a typical CITY set, it has obvious cockpit and passenger seating put it also contains separate first and economy (known as coach class in America), folding seat for a flight attendant, fully featured galley and a bathroom in the tail-cone (not pictured). Also not pictured is inverted roof pieces used to represent overhead compartments (although these make it difficult for minifigs to fit in comfortably) and clocks hanging from the ceiling in the aisle Constructive criticism is encouraged and accepted. 717.lxf
Airbus A380 Micro Model The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by European aircraft company Airbus. It is the world's largest passenger airliner, and the airports at which it operates have upgraded facilities to accommodate it. It was initially named Airbus A3XX and designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market. The A380 made its first flight on 27 April 2005 and entered commercial service in October 2007 with Singapore Airlines. -Wikipedia Now I present to you the biggest passenger plane out of Lego! I tried to include as much details as possible at this small scale and I must say I'm quite pleased with the result. The project features: Detailed plane Decals Removable landing gear Display stand in various colors It's built out of 365 bricks which seems quite reasonable for a Lego Ideas set. Here're some more pics: Thanks a lot to Anduin1710 who made the beautiful renders. Make sure to check out his projects. Especially if you're a LotR or Hobbit fan! Do you like my MOC? Please consider supporting over at Lego Ideas to make it become a real set! Your help is greatly appreciated!
