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 explain my choice of pilot. Combine that with a World War II technology vibe, I was thinking of a motorcycle, and you have The Magpie. The introduction of official LEGO RAF stickers was the final bit of inspiration I needed to get building.
