Introducing the newest and most advanced aircraft family I have ever created.
About this creation
As Swiss Global Airlines is about to introduce the CS100 in its fleet in the coming months, I decided to recreate the aircraft in lego. Using LDD I designed what I believe to be the best aircraft I've ever made. The plane features 4 opening doors, retractable landing gear, large windows and a brand new design that bids farewell to the blocky look for this new realistic look.
The new nose, the picture makes it look more blocky than it actually is. But it looks great from all angles
A global view of the aircraft
This view really shows how realistic looking the aircraft can look.
This view shows the front door and the general view one could see when boarding an aircraft.
Here it is with the door open, and the roof removed. This is easily done and the design isn't too fragile.
The interior isn't really done yet, but with standard Swiss seating, will look something like this.
Here is the undercarriage, which shows the landing gear system, as well as the cargo door.
And here is the landing gear system in flight mode.
The Swiss tail for now, having a hard time getting hold of the lego cross plate part so until then this is the system I'm using.
This view shows the front of the aircraft which is also very nice, and shows the realism of the aircraft.
The aircraft at take off.
And another view of the nose which shows, I hope, how realistic this design is.
NOVA AIRLINES CS300
Nova airlines will also be operating the aircraft, but the longer configuration, the CS300 which is 4 studs longer. Stay tuned for more updates on the interior.
I hope you like this aircraft. Feel free to comment. I'm also considering launching a Lego Ideas campaign, so feel free to let me know if you think this is a good idea or not
