About this creation
One of America's classic twin boom aircraft from the 1960's, a light attack and observation turboprop. A few words about my design: The wings and central nacelle of the actual aircraft are squarish and simple, but the pilot's plexiglass canopy seems to bulge up and out; in my model the central nacelle is 4 studs wide but I used Lego part 50986 (6-studs-wide) as the windscreen to capture (and exaggerate) the effect. It took me awhile to figure out how to cant the windscreen downward in the front and to use the Lego curved slope part 85970 turned horizontally in order to have an underlay for the windscreen's sides. I highly favor using one-piece Lego windscreens (in contrast to building the shape from multiple transparent parts) as it adds greatly to realism. Not shown from this angle: the opening at the rear of the central nacelle; in my model I have a mini-fig sitting facing the tail through the open doorway. Two other mini-figs sit in-line under the windscreen.
The struts for the rear wheels of the actual plane are devilishly simple, too, being a pole coming straight down from each tail boom ending in a wheel. I used Lego part 53586 (technic axle and pin connector with extension) to replicate that simplicity because the bar extension runs to 5 studs.
The model as shown is 235 Lego elements. Dynamic elements: rolling wheels, spinning propellers, and a series of movable flaps on the wings and tail.
