  1. Dear all, It seems as if I'm growing fond of designing and building aircraft models... So here's my latest one: Antonov An-2TP, CCCP-41301, built by PZL Mielec (Poland) in 1965. The prototype First flown in 1947 and originally designed as a crop-spraying plane, the Antonov An-2 soon proved itself as a highly versatile aircraft for a wide range of both military and civilian purposes. The seemingly old-fashioned biplane layout, high-lift devices (automatic leading edge slats) and quick acceleration thanks to its monstrous 1,000 hp radial engine gave the plane phenomenal STOL abilities. In addition to that, the slow-flying qualities are almost legendary, too: The aircraft has no official stall speed, and there are reports of pilots flying the An-2 in full control at only 30 mph. More than 18,000 An-2 were produced over a period of more than five decades (first in the Soviet Union, later in Poland and China, too) and became widespread over all countries of the former Eastern Bloc. A large number of them still exists today, and many have found a new home in Western countries, where they are used for sightseeing flights or as parachute drop aircraft. The model My model of the An-2 is held in 1/70 scale, thus almost matching my Tu-144 (an identical 1/80 scale was impossible to achieve, the An-2 would have become too small to get the proportions right, let alone to replicate any detail). It consists of ca. 370 parts. The propeller can spin freely; however, I wasn’t able to implement any other movable parts in this small scale. And just because the sound of the mighty 9-cylinder engine is so awesome: Instructions for this model are available for free on Rebrickable. Thanks for stopping by! Best regards, Sven
  2. Hi all, (I don't really know where to put this - "Special Themes" or "Scale Modeling" - so if it's wrong here, please let me know... ) LEGO’s new Concorde is a fine set overall, but it has, in my opinion, some flaws which compromise its looks.So I had to decide whether to modify it or to build something different… and, as I prefer the more "brutal" appearance of the Concorde’s Soviet counterpart anyway, I chose the latter. The prototype The Tu-144 was the first commercial supersonic aircraft, its maiden flight taking place two months before the Concorde took off. Nevertheless, the Tu-144 is often regarded as much inferior to the Concorde, but that’s not the full story. Commercial passenger flights were only offered for a few months, that's true, but it was due to changing political circumstances rather than for technical reasons that the Tu-144 was finally withdrawn from passenger service. Indeed there were some technical issues (as perhaps with every completely new aircraft), but they most probably would have been solved had not the Soviet authorities lost interest in supersonic commercial aviation and thus ordered not only commercial flights, but the whole development programme to be terminated in 1983. And yet, while the first production variant Tu-144S was hampered by its inefficient Kuznetsov engines, the improved Tu-144D version (with Kolesov engines) had performance figures almost on par with the Concorde. Consequently, it was a Tu-144D (CCCP-77114, disguised as "aircraft 101" for unclear reasons) that set 13 official world records for speed and altitude with given payloads in July 1983, just after the cancellation of the Tu-144 programme had been announced. (For those of you who have a deeper interest in this matter: Yefim Gordon, Dimitriy Komissarov, Vladimir Rigmant - Tupolev Tu-144, The Soviet Supersonic Airliner. A very good reading about the Tu-114’s design, development and the political affairs behind it) The model To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its above-mentioned flights, my model bears the registration and "101" titles of the world record plane. I was originally motivated to design it by ungern 666’s Tu-144 sketch on Rebrickable, but, apart from some inspirations I took regarding the tail section, it has evolved into a completely different scale model. The plane consists of approx. 1900 parts an weighs ca. 1.3 kg. The "droop nose“, canards, rudders (yes, two) and elevons are moveable. While the landing gear is not retractable (I prefer a true-to-scale look over functions), it can be replaced with parts for the closed landing gear bay doors. Also, the tail cone can be replaced with a sub-model assembly showing the deployed brake parachutes. Unfortunately, at the moment there's only one photo of the completed model, which has a crudely photoshopped grey background. More pictures will follow as soon as I have found a sufficiently large, neutral, real background... Thanks for stopping by! Kind regards, Sven
  3. On the desert outskirts of the city where Johnny Thunder lives, there is an old airstrip where Johnny's old friend Harry Cane lives. In his little rundown hangar, the ace pilot maintains his biplane and prepares for the gang's next adventure. The old tin roof has patches of rust on it. The doors can be opened and closed as seen in this animation. On one side of the hangar there is a pile of crates, Harry's motorcycle, and a palm tree. On the other side of the hangar there is an old power generator. The steam powered generator chugs along, providing electricity to the building. Let's take a closer look inside the hangar. The roof can easily be removed to access the interior. This is where Harry's office desk is located. It is cluttered with a radio, maps, bills, booze, and navigation equipment. Next to it is a filing cabinet with a fan and a little easter egg. There's also a pile of cargo crates with adventuring gear, a brass fire extinguisher (the old kind which has a little rubber hose dangling from the top and which you simply tilt upside down to use), and a wall telephone. On this side there is a pinboard with a picture of Harry's friends Johnny Thunder and Dr. Kilroy, and various maps, including ones from the 2 previous adventures that Harry accompanied Johnny on. There is also Harry's workbench and tanks of oil and gas. Here is a closer look at Harry's biplane which he used during the war. The rudder can be adjusted. A small car that Harry uses to get to and from the hangar. It is designed in the style of the little impulse sets and polybags that were common for the Adventurers theme. It has a small baggage area in the back and the classic license plate with his initials. I hope you like this entry. I will leave you with a photo of Harry in front of his plane.
  4. Continuing the line of strange looking airplanes... This alternate from the set 60064 Arctic Supply Plane has been inspired by the asymmetrical reconnaissance aircraft from the german manufacturer Blohm und Voss. Now this is what "eurotrash" mentioned in my earlier post. Blohm&Voss BV 141 (60064 alternate) by Plastic.Ati, on Flickr This time it was very hard to regenerate the shape, as the cockpit panels were way too big, and there were not enough rounded or slope bricks. Starting from this point I tried to find the right measures for the wings (which were bent up at the ends, making some headache for me). I used THIS drawing for verifying the proportions, but I had to change several points because of the part availability. Blohm&Voss BV 141 (60064 alternate) by Plastic.Ati, on Flickr I ended up with a minifig-compatible, very swooshable model, which was not a copy of the original, but easily recognisable due to its distinct shape. Blohm&Voss BV 141 (60064 alternate) by Plastic.Ati, on Flickr Blohm&Voss BV 141 (60064 alternate) by Plastic.Ati, on Flickr After finishing the body it took me a while to find a solution for the foldable wheels on the wings, and I can say that it can hold the whole weight of the plane, but you should not push it too hard as it is the week point. During flight they can be folded up to the wings. Blohm&Voss BV 141 (60064 alternate) by Plastic.Ati, on Flickr Blohm&Voss BV 141 (60064 alternate) by Plastic.Ati, on Flickr Now I am working on the instructions so once it is ready, I will put the link here. Until that Finally the instructions are ready, and can be found on my Rebrickable page along with some other pics. C&C are welcome. Below you can check my other alternates for this set:
  5. Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr This small scenery depicts a typical German Ju-87 R/2 (tropical version) in the Tmimi airfield in Libya during summer 1941. Historical photos show that at least 2 planes from the II/St.G 2 unit received this very particular paint scheme and only during summer (and maybe fall) of 1941. Reasons for this paint scheme remain unknown but it appears on multiple photos with 2 different plane markings for sure. I've built this for the "1941" contest of BrickMania. Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr The model - Junkers Ju-87 Stuka The Stuka is based on BrickMania JU-87 G-2 with quite a lot of modifications: The paint scheme is changed from DBG to tan and dark green. (and believe me, this can be tricky and costly) The nose and propeller are significantly different. The wings angle is slightly higher on my model to match with the real one. The landing gear has been changed (after 20 different trials, at least) Armament has been converted to a 500Kg bomb + fuel tanks under the wings (the bomb drop system is fully functional) Wing tips are different Tail and rear fuselage underwent significant changes to accommodate the paint scheme (and available bricks) The canopy is quite different Markings comes from various 1/32 scale models The bomb loader is custom and looks quite well like the original tool developed specifically for the Stuka The engine crane is classic. A few accessories are spread around, depicting typical working conditions in North-Africa. The Stuka was quite a challenging build, particularly given the limited available parts in tan and dark green. In the end, I like the results even if I think a couple of areas could still be improved. All bricks are 100% Lego except a couple accessories (some crates and 2 machine guns). The Stuka antenna is just a non-Lego black wire. Zoom on the bomb loading tool, developed specifically for the Stuka. Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr Note: I have also designed a DBG + yellow tail variant of the Stuka that served on the Bulgarian front in 1941 but the model is not yet built. Note 2; No photoshopping was involved. The pictures with the desert background were taken in front of a PC screen with a desert wallpaper being displayed. The desert is actually from Libya of course.
  6. Hello to the community. Below you see a render of a digital MOC I've realized beginning of the year. The MOC shows the former Luxembourg Airport Findel as it locked in the 50s, late 60s. Reference Images: The final MOC: Lego MOC Luxembourg Airport Findel by legolux1973, on Flickr Credits go to De Marco Bricks and Wheels, building instructions for the tractor and the tank truck I found on his Youtube Chanel. Maybe you like the MOC. Regards, legolux1973
  7. Hi, Happy new year! Calling for Lego airplane fans, especially jet plane fans. I tried to build some jet plane for years. But could not find a suitable part for jet plane nose. I tried some ways, but neither looks great. Any one has the same trouble? And any one has any solution? I have something like this And something like this And something like this And something like this But, non of them looks good and can universal.
  8. Hi all, I'm happy to present my newest MOC, a propeller plane with realistic controls. This is the list of functions: Working rudder Working ailerons Working elevator Openable canopy Freely spinning propeller Steering rear wheel It is a medium sized build at 707 parts. The dimensions are as follows: length: 30 cm / 11" width: 33 cm / 13" height: 10 cm / 4" The working controls are the main part of the plane. This is an overview of the mechanisms: Propeller plane controls by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr The yellow parts control the elevator, the yellow the ailerons and the magenta parts are for the rudder. The way the ailerons and elevator work are not too complex. By moving the yoke forwards and backwards, the rearmost connector also moves. This connector is connected to the elevator. The ailerons are connected to the yoke via a set of gears. The most interesting part of these 2 mechanisms, is the CV joint. This joint allows the axle to move in and out easily, while transferring the rotation to the gears. The way the rudder works is a bit more complex. Here is a render showing the different parts of that mechanism: details pedals by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr The yellow parts are the pedals. When you push a pedal forwards, it also pushes a purple liftarm forwards. To this liftarm a rubber band is attached at the bushes. The rubber band makes the rudder return to centre. The purple liftarm is blocked from moving backwards (towards the seat) by the dark green parts. This is done to make sure that both rubber bands don't cancel each other out. The movement from the pedals is transferred to the light blue liftarms. These are in turn attached to the lime parts. The lime 3L liftarm rotates about the pin in the middle. It is also the link between both pedals. The lime green thin liftarms are connected to an axle which finally rotates the rudder. Renders showing the mechanisms in action can be seen at 1:19 in the video. If you are interested in building it for yourself, here you can find free instructions: ReBrickable It is also on Lego Ideas, any support will be highly appreciated: Lego Ideas Finally, here are some more images showing the plane: Propeller plane rear side 2 by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr Propeller plane front 2 by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr Propeller plane top by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr Propeller plane front by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr
  9. 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"!
  10. Thanks for checking out my latest topic. I finally bought the pieces to build my Boeing 747 irl. Feel free to support this project on LEGO Ideas if you want to see it become an official set. 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 would make it a great swooshable desk display-piece for any fan of LEGO and aviation. Feel free to check out this 3D-view of the creation on Mecabricks and the high resolution images on flickr. Improved display stand: Than you for your attention.

    Talespin Seaduck

    Hello, Last month I created a moc of the Sunchaser from Ducktales and I got a number of requests to build the Seaduck from Talespin this is my latest moc built using Talespin was a great Disney cartoon. This is a Lego version of the Seaduck piloted by Baloo being chased by Don Karnage that I designed. The Seaduck has a 64 stud wingspan, 3 doors, removable seating, and attachment point for Kit to cloud surf from. The Tri-wing Terror is 32 studs wide and has a compartment to store pirate treasure. more images here are some mashup pictures to compare the size of the Seaduck with the Sunchaser. Thanks for visiting! If you like what you see please consider supporting this on Lego Ideas. Seaduck Sunchaser
  12. "Life is like a hurricane, here in Duck Burg Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes, it's a duck blur Might solve a mystery, or rewrite history Duck Tales (woo oo)” I built the Sunchaser in the style of the 2017 Duck Tales reboot series which is currently on its 3rd season. This Sunchaser moc is comprised of approximately 1400 pieces, and has a wingspan of 64 studs, a length of 63 studs, and a height of 34 bricks. It is minifigure scale, and has seats for 8 in the cockpit deck, which is above the massive cargo bay that comes with a black sedan, further room for minifigures is found in the hidden lounge in the nose of the plane. The back end opens up giving access to the cargo bay and cockpit deck above. The black sedan is 14 studs long and sits 2 minifigures. Thanks for stopping by! I will keep you updated if it is a go ahead to be voted on Lego Ideas

    [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.
  14. Hi, all my friends here! I just posted a contribution on Lego Ideas. That's a cute and creative Lego jet- plane set. Check it out! If you like it, please support it on the official Lego Ideas website to help me make it real. For getting this set actually into the Lego market, I need to gather at least 10,000 supports. Thank you for your interest and support, and don't forget to share it to your friends!
  15. Hi! every one! Have a long time haven't log in, then saw plenty of impressive stuff. I went to another State and worked for months, and had some ideas come out during that period. Here is what I got. Thank you for your attention!

    Jon Hall's Airplane

    Hi! every one here. First, happy Thanks Giving! Second, is Jon Hall here? Or is any body know Jon Hall? I am one of his/her follower. Here are some of his/her works, there are really fantastic!
  19. Dan Journman is a world famous traveling freelance LEGO reporter, specialized in engineering and technology. If Eurobricks agrees, I will post here excerpts from Dan's travel stories. His accounts have typically 4 parts: A description of his experiences, historical background from local sources, technical details, and his personal final comments. Some years ago, Dan visited a distant small mining facility with innovative water powered generators. But that's another story. This topic is from an intermediate stop during his journey, at a small regional airport. Dan's Story The morning flight from the SW capital was uneventful. It lasted a while as it was on the edge of the range for our small airplane, but it was still rather pleasant. The old but well maintained and clean aircraft was an LTR-24, seating 25 passengers, 1 cabin and 2 flight deck crew members. The three-bladed propellers revealed that this particular airplane was a quite old version of the popular regional turboprop; though with upgraded avionics and FMC. The LTR-24 is the smallest of the LTR range that has included the LTR-32, LTR-40 and SLTR-44. Based on the real world Aerospatiale/Alenia ATR series, passengers board through a rear located door and cargo is loaded through the large cargo door in the front, behind flightdeck. The first thing I noticed when we landed was the size of the airport building. I was surprised to find that there were only two daily flights connecting with bigger towns, in addition to some local flights to nearby sites, including the mining town I was about to visit. As I had some time to spare before my next flight, I had the opportunity to talk with the airport manager who was very helpful in providing information and he even gave me some pictures taken by drone, showing a similar aircraft (LTR-24) parked at the apron. The manager explained me that the airport building was an ambitious attempt to establish a secondary regional hub in the NW territory, to serve the few small northernmost towns of the region. Pressure from local politicians and overoptimistic hopes for rapid development of the region dictated the construction of a relatively large terminal with 5 gates, including 2 air-bridges. The two-level building has the capacity to serve several simultaneous flights. However, by the time the terminal was inaugurated and for the years to come, the passenger volume remained low and the largest airplane ever connecting the city to the main NW hub was the humble LTR-24 with a twice-daily service frequency. Two or three smaller SWTL-16 based at the airport connect the nearby towns. The irony in the pictures is obvious; the air-bridges are out of service since the LTR-24 (as well as the smaller commuter planes) cannot use an air-bridge and passengers board from one of the 3 ground gates. In fact, only a fraction of the terminal facilities has ever been used. Local press has often cited the airport expansion as a scandal, perhaps not without a reason. Some technical details about the Terminal The airport terminal of this small hub has a departures hall with check-in kiosks and desks, baggage drop-off and ticketing services. In the secured area, the main hall (mostly empty space) has only a small cafe selling also some souvenirs. Passengers board the planes through two air-bridges or ground level gates. A dedicated hallway allows any gate to be used for arrivals as well. The arrivals hall has two baggage claim belts and a car rental desk. The footprint area of the terminal is 6912 square studs (0.44 square meters, 4.8 square feet) and the volume is approximately 138000 cubic studs (0.08 cubic meters, 2.8 cubic feet). Final Comment from Dan A typical waste of taxpayers money. Spend too much, build too big, leave things unfinished and ugly looking. Low quality construction with limited use and functionality. Photo 1 (from drone) Baggage loading and passengers boarding. Loaders are placing the baggage into the forward cargo hold. Photo 2 (from drone) Passengers exiting the terminal building through ground gate B2. We used the exact same gate. Photo 3 (from drone) Another view of the flight preparations. Notice the First Officer standing next to the number 1 engine while doing the pre-flight check. Photo 4 Upgraded flightdeck of the old LTR-24 commuter turboprop; photo taken from behind First Officer's seat.
  20. I want to recreate the mechanic in this video, starting at 1:14, in the smallest scale possible. Is there a way to do this without gears? Is this even possible with Lego? Ideas will be much appreciated.
  21. OK, I'll play too. I am excited about any reason to build an aircraft, but these last couple of days have been rough. I have drafted four ideas (F-86, TA-183, Air Racer, and DH Mosquito), and I didn't like were any of them were going. Getting the nose right is so tricky. Or I am too picky. So, here is the fifth idea, and we will see what can happen with this. It's not very ambitious, but I'll be able to get it done in time. And it fits with what I like to do, mid sized, no PF, and packed full of features. Dual Rotors Front and Rear Collective control Retractable landing gear Opening side door Rear ramp Which It's not much to start, but I have drafted some of the mechanics off to the side. I'll update again tomorrow. I am stuck on colors right now. Yellow and red is overdone, and I do not want too much white, so I welcome votes.

  22. Hi, I would like to present my next C-MODEL model. This time it is made from 42025 (cargo plane) SAILPLANE GLIDER Designed completely computer-free method. Just building, un-building, rebuilding. It took me over the year. But I had few periods when I did not touch it for several months or many weeks. For now, there is only very few pictures, you can call it a teaser. Video showing details and functions, complete description, and many pictures will come soon. Features: COMPLETE FLIGHT CONTROLS -working ailerons (controlled by the stick in the cockpit) -working elevators (controlled by the stick in the cockpit) -working rudder (controlled by the working pedals in the cockpit) -working flaps (controlled by the lever in the cockpit) -fully retractable landing gear (1 central wheel) (controlled by the knob on the side) -fully open-able and close-able landing gear bay (controlled by the lever under the fuselage) -open-able canopy (controlled by the lever on the side under the wings) - correct T shape tail - only 7 studs wide fuselage! - only 2 studs thick wings! - winglets - tail wheel. - structurally sound and rigid, wings are somewhat flexible (but still very playable) but I guess it is only accurate: No motorized functions - I thought it would be odd to put motor into something that is by definition motor/engineless - (I know there are self propelled sailplanes, but this one is not it) It is totally full, very packed and dense MOC. It is not a simple build. It assumes the builder is experienced technicman/technicwoman. It is huge - see with 42055 as reference: I hope you like it. More to come "hopefully" soon. _________________ edit 2: Video: _________________ edit 1: Photos added: leftover parts: February 2017 state: ______________________________ I hope you like it. Thank you for your time seeing the pictures.
  23. So, it's already been three days since the contest was announced, and I still haven't built anything yet... It's probably time to get started then! The Inspiration: The idea for my entry comes from the main model of set 8485 - a set I'm still yet to build despite owning most of the parts... The Goal: My plan for this build is basically a modern version of the above model, but with a plane replacing the helicopter, and including the following features: Movable ailerons and elevators Lifting, rolling, and pitching of the plane Full manual control - no remote control. (hopefully) Possibly something else... The First Prototype: Rather than spending an extra day building a working prototype, I decided to just quickly build the basic idea in LDD, as I know from experience that I rarely end up using anything from the first prototype... Anyway, that's all for now, I hope to have something functional built either tomorrow or the next day...
  24. Hello all, I’m new and it’s been a while since I last purchased a LEGO set. I love airliners such as commercial ones, jets, any modern airplane really... I purchased the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (10177) however, this seems to be the only set that’s actually decently sized, and not a MOC. I’ve tried googling and all forums to see if I could find others but to no avail and MOCs of aircraft I do find, either have no instructions or very small/basic construction... so if anyone can show me the right place to find decent well made models instructions or even alternative builds ? It would be amazing,
  25. I just picked up the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (10177-1) and the Silver Champion (8458) and was wondering how I can go about adding my own livery to each of them? or if at all possible? Such as getting custom stickers created? is there a website or program that would be helpful in creating custom stickers for these sets? **UPDATE COMPARISON BETWEEN SILVER CHAMPION 8458 AND MCLAREN MP4/14, MERCEDES MGP W01, F1 CARS** LEGO F1 SILVER CHAMPION 8458 1999 MCLAREN MERCEDES F1 MP4/14 2010 MERCEDES-PETRONAS F1 MGP W01
