DoubleBU posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingI 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!)
Hi folks. I wasn't sure where to post this - I didnt put it in Lego town because its not minifigure scale (I wish)! Anyway - here's my attempt at the beautiful, enigmatic and sadly missed Concorde. https://www.flickr.c...57648909864872/ For anyone interested in the finer technical points of this model, I would point out 3 features. 1. Smooth surfaces on ALL sides of the engine pods 2. Strong accurate scale wing composition and shape 3. Round Fuselage This was achieved by building these substructures in 3 separate dimensions. 1. Engine pods, from the fuselage outwards (X axis) 2. Wings, nose and tail from ground up (Y axis) 3. Main fuselage from rear to front (Z axis) Seamlessly melding these substructures was overshadowed in complexity only by designing the nose and tail to form asymmetrical cones from a cylinder. Comments and questions welcome.
