Focke Wulf 190 meeting up with another German classic.
About this creation
The Focke Wulf 190 is probably my favorite WW2 plane. I've always liked the robust and compact look of it with the radial engine out front. After trying out some techniques with the sports plane, I figured I could give the 190 a try. So here it is.
I've kept the wings in snot to allow for the retractable landing gear. A minifig fits inside and there's a control stick as well.
Cool! Some great techniques on this one, especially on the landing gear. Great work on the shape too, and nice use of parts for the engine :-) I have to admit though, the Porsche steals the show for me.. I started work on a red version of it, but i lack the parts to finish it - and i am stuck trying to figure a way to lower the height of the sides by one plate. But maybe i should forget that! After all, your Porsche-design looks great as it is :-)
Even if the wings are a bit short, I love the SNOT technique which makes them SMOOTH! None of that studdy mess to cause 'drag' ;) and like Seaman SPb said, it's playable! The underside is nice too (as are all the smooth surfaces on the entire plane)
2 iconic German masterpieces masterfully recreated with the brick! Great headlight brick choice on the 911! The plane wings look so clean, and while I am no expert on airplanes, considering the choice of slopes you had to choose from in this color, I am sure you nailed the shape!
