From the first time I saw the theme for this Lego Technic contest, I was intrigued by it and wanted to give it a try, but it had to be a biplane. I have a soft spot for these aircrafts, after seeing them in many documentaries and old Hollywood movies. And after some time on the world wide web, I was hooked on the striking blue/yellow color combination on the Boeing Stearman Model 75. It's basically a military trainer aircraft built starting from 1934, in the United States. More than 10k were built until 1940, and after the WWII, they were sold to civilians. This was a great move, cause they were used as crop dusters, then as sport and acrobatic planes used in air shows. Around 1500 are still in use today, and many are at display in museums around the world. But enough of this, you can read more about it and see real photos on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing-Stearman_Model_75 I tried my best to replicate the sleek lines of this marvelous biplane, while including relevant functions, such as: Functions: - motorized rotor - working ailerons (front) - working elevators (back) - functional tail rudder Technical Specs: Scale: 1:19 Weight: 956g Lenght: 46cm Wing span: 52cm Height: 18cm As the model is finished, see some representative photos here: So guys, I managed to get the stickers on, so here is the final model: See more detailed photos on my Flickr account: https://www.flickr.com/photos/braker23/albums/72157705259798851/with/46179286365/ Video is done and online, let me know what you think about functions: Thank you all for your time!
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,
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
