As Ed Diment works on his minifig-scale USS Intrepid aircraft carrier, Ralph Savelsberg (Mad Physicist) has been contributing World War II era fighter aircraft.
Ralph’s latest plane is the Imperial Japanese Naval Air Service’s Mitsubishi A6M3 “Zero” carrier-based fighter, or 零式艦上戦闘機 as I grew up knowing it. Long before I fell in love with the Corsair, the Zero captured my imagination, and Ralph’s LEGO version captures it accurately in brick.
A couple weeks ago, Ralph also posted a new pair of US Navy fighters, the F4U Corsair and TBF Avenger:
The F4U Corsair is one of my favourite WWII aircraft, now someone just needs to make a deHavilland Mosquito which is by far my favourite plane.
^glad you like it and nice to see it get blogged. I built a Mosquito little more than a year ago and it too was blogged here on TBB.
Awesome looking planes.
