Here I'd like to show you two airplanes that were already on display at the exhibitions Bricking Bavaria in Germany and Mondesee in Austria. Both planes were also available as official sets in large scale in 2001 and 2002 – I had now tried to construct them in minifigure size. Sopwith F.1 Camel Fokker Dr.I Hope you like them - please let me know in the comments :) Best Johannes
Two Days ago i bought the DC Super Heroes Set 76075 with Wonder Woman,a large buildable Ares and a neat looking WWI Plane. I bought it for the Plane but on further Inspection of the finished Set i thought about changing a couple of Things on the Plane to make it look more like the one used in the recent Wonder Woman Movie,the Fokker E III. I replaced the large sloped Wedges with Plates.Unfortunetly the Plates weren`t available in dark Tan so i used grey ones and also changed every other tan Piece into grey. I also modified the Wings into a Shape closer to the Fokker and changed the rear Wings a bit to fit in. As you can see a round 2x2 Tile covers the Area where the Tail Fin is clipped in to give it a cleaner Look.The round Tile allows the Fin to move to both Sides for steering. Another Detail that bugged me was the oversized and clunky Landing Gear Area. I aimed for something more delicate and used a black Laser Sword Blade,some Clips and a Plate with horizontal Clips to build something that looks more like the Landing Gear of WWI Era Planes. It is surprisingly sturdy,but of course a rough Landing might still damage it (just like in real Life). The last Thing i changed was the Cockpit and of course the Weaponry. Those Stud Shooters and Flickfire Missiles were dumped and i mounted a WWI Style "Nutcracker" Cannon on the Plane (just google for "Fokker-Leimberger).I also added a Control Stick to the Cockpit. 20170706_153911 20170706_153948 20170706_153957 20170706_154009 20170706_154016 20170706_154026 20170706_154033 20170706_154043 20170706_154052 20170706_154100 20170706_154137 As you can see,i pretty much changed everything from the original Set.All in all i relplaced most of the Parts and added more Details. So,what do you think of my newest Moc.....or is it still a Mod? Hope you like it,Comments are always welcome. P.S.:This was my first ever designed Plane
