For understandable real-world reasons, last week was a bit of a slow LEGO week, so I’m not surprised Keith didn’t get a chance to do a second “Friday Night Fight.” When I got caught up on LEGO and encountered this sky-fi fighter, I thought to myself, “Ah, excellent — Jon Hall has built another gorgeous Continue reading →
LEGO Sky-Fi models on The Brothers Brick
I was looking through flickr user’s Sydag’s new aircraft models earlier, and was shocked to discover that we’ve never featured any of his stunning airplanes here before. Sydag has been building some of the best small aircraft to be found, including this latest pair of Hawker Sea Furies, decked out for the Reno Air Races. Continue reading →
In the spirit of highlighting original Cuusoo Projects, also check out Rong Yiren’s chibitastic Desktop Series: Fighters. Cute, swooshable and very original.
Well this has to be one of the most unique things that I have seen in a long time! But really can we expect anything less from Bartosz Kacprzyk (oneman)??? That skull is so whimsical, and combined with the checker pattern on the fuselage…just absolutely lovely!!! I can totally picture this buzzing around the screen Continue reading →
Jon Hall’s latest Sky-fi fighterplane is quite electrifying, employing a concept that’s rather brilliant and makes me wish I’d thought of it. Rigged with a pair of giant tesla coils, it can zap its targets at the speed of light. Beyond a terrific premise, though, Hall’s work is outstanding as always, with great shaping and Continue reading →
We’ve gone far too long without featuring a lovely sky-fi fighter by Fredo (Fredoichi). Fredo’s Karibachi San Zero incorporates minifig legs in some really interesting ways. And since we didn’t feature them while he was building these mecha back in September, here’s a roundup of four awesome variations on a theme.
You can get your mind out of the gutter now. With a little help from his girlfriend, Nathaniel Brill (Shuppiluliumas) has taken LEGO Friends and given it a Flash Gordon remake. Yea-ahhhh! She’ll save every one of us.
Jon Hall is at it again, posting awesome sky-fi fighters. His latest airplane combines masterful sticker usage with a unique design. Since the last time we highlighted one of Jon’s fighters, he’s posted a few other beauties, not least of which is the fierce-looking “Viper”:
Jean-Phillippe Lajoie Dorval (zwiti) was inspired to build this can by the comic book “Les cercles du pouvoir,” which also inspired the film, The Fifth Element. It looks like they didn’t change the style much for the movie, because this is a great likeness of the cabs in the movie. It looks accurate right down Continue reading →
Nathaniel Brill (aka Shuppiluliumas) puts the new Friends line to great use with his delightfully retro scouting plane for Mia, complete with nose art and an adorable sidekick aviator hedgehog. The plane itself is quite a nice build, and the concept is great fun.
Moritz Nolting (nolnet) puts the dragon’s head from the new NinjaGo set 2509 Earth Dragon Defense to excellent use with this funny-looking fighter plane — an entry in Dan’s Put Your Brick Where Your Mouth Is contest. The toothy grin on the nose is evocative of paint schemes sported by Allied World War II squadrons Continue reading →
Jon Hall combines a fairly massive amount of “official” chrome LEGO bricks with a handful of elements from Chrome Bricks to achieve this wonderfully shiny sky-fighter reminiscent of the P-38 Lightning from World War II. And since we missed his previous two models, here’s a pair of his sky pirates:
What I like the most about Chrispockst’s Sand Baron flying wing is that he went out of his way to use all kinds of what he calls “un-useful/unusual parts” that work well together to make this thing look like a chunky behemoth. I especially love the huge off-angle engines around the low sleek cockpit.
Adrian Florea integrates “useless” parts like Rahkshi back covers and aircraft doors in a beautifully sculpted ski-fi flyer called the Honeybadger.
I’ve long been a fan of the Sky-Fi genre (or as we called it years ago, Crimson Skies). However, I’ve never quite managed to build anything in that vein. That is, until now, with this little flying scout. I think I may have been a little bit inspired by Kiki’s Delivery service, it would certainly Continue reading →
