Skull Fighter

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 of a Tim Burton film!

The Thunderbird Bolts into Action

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 coloring.

Karibachi San Zero sky-fi fighter with bonus mini-mecha

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.

Welcome, there is one point left on your license

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 to a door with a hinge on top.

Nolnet’s Wadenbeißer will chomp your squadrons to bits

Moritz Nolting (nolnet) puts the dragon’s head from the new NinjaGo set 2509 Earth Dragon Defenseicon 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 flying the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, but the addition of troll arms makes this a hilariously whimsical aircraft.

Laputa Skyyards E-73 Wyvern fighter by JonHall18

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:

Sand Baron sky-fi flying wing by Chrispockst

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.
