A simple minifig-scale jet plane whipped up for an upcoming show at Denver Children's Hospital. Not that I'd ever actually play with it myself. Uh-uh. Ain't gonna happen.
About this creation
Please feel free to look over the images and skip the verbiage.

With our first-ever show at Denver Children's Hospital coming up later this month, I thought I'd step outside my technical LEGOŽ comfort zone and try something new.



The inspiration came by way of a large black SSST wing part (6219) found while rummaging in the basement. It was from the kids' 1995-vintage Shuttle Launch Pad set (6339).



Not much to the plane, really, but I think the younger kids might get a kick out of it.

Taxi

Of course, I'd never actually play with such a childish thing myself. No siree, Bob! Not me.








Take-off
Nothing like a near-vertical climb-out on full afterburner to get the juices flowing toward the spine!





I later came up with a much better stand.

In the air







Hmmm, better check the rinse aid in the dishwasher.

Being made of the same virtually indestructible plastic as his plane, our intrepid pilot decides to attempt the exceedingly dangerous post-stall Pugachev Cobra maneuver.

Reduce air speed to 400 knots.
Check.
Altitude 5,000 ft and steady.
Check.
Thrust vectoring engaged.
Check.
Afterburner on standby.
Check.
Stall alarm off.
Check.
Angle of attack limiter disengaged.
Check.
Nose up and over!

Coming in

Ha! Got away with another one! Time to go home.







As Kurt Wallenda might have said, life is on the wing. Everything else is waiting.

Nice! I like the shape and those jet nozzles Angelo also mentioned :-)

Quoting Angelo Filipelli Looks good just as a small moc. I like the usage of the tripod cockipit window and the log bricks as jet nozzles.
Thanks, Angelo!

Quoting James Y. Never played with it. Uh-huh. Sure. Anyway, assuming I believe that... Amusing little design. Reminds me of some of the older space sets that LEGO did mostly in the 1980s and 1990s.
Of course, I have no choice -- the plane needs its exercise. Wouln't be at all surprised to see earlier uses of the same basic design.

Quoting Oran Cruzen Hey Jeremy, do you have time to check out the invite I sent you about LEGO Slot Car?
Yes, I did, Oran. Didn't know that was you but should have guessed. Sorry, I declined it because I don't see myself branching out into slot cars in the foreseeable future. For one thing, I have no place to set up a track now that the wife's put her foot down about LEGO taking over the entire house. (She has a point, but I never said that.)

Quoting Jack Sparrow Haha this is great! You can deny it all you want, but you had a towel tied around our neck like a cape and were flying this around your house making jet noises. Very fun model!
Oh, I forgot: Takes one to know one.

OK, OK, you got me. But just for the record, it wasn't a Barney towel. It was a Transformer towel --you know, the one with Megan Fox under the hood.

Quoting JWG 258 This is a fun model. I might do a variant of it for the next kid build model for my son.
Not that I ever play with it myself.

Thanks, JWG. I'd love to see what you come up with. Just don't let him do any Pugachev Cobra maneuvers until he's thoroughly checked out in it -- =very= dangerous if you don't get the thrust vectoring just right, you know.
