PZL P.11
Build in Mars 2009 for a WWII illustrated book that I'm working on.
About this creation
The PZL P.11 was a Polish fighter aircraft, designed in the early 1930s by PZL in Warsaw. The PZL P.11 served as Poland's primary fighter defence in the Polish campaign of 1939, but by that point was outdated due to rapid advances in aircraft design

Build in one week. The main difficulty was the landing gear. Very fun to build. Sorry no instruction.

Very nice P.11!!! How come you don't make more Polish stuff? Make more WW2 stuff, your Modern US stuff is great, but I want to see your WW2 building talent more!

Quoting Peter Nep No problem? Hint? I know it! It is Polish TKS, the best tank in the world! :D You know these TKS were rearmed with 27 mm guns in 1939, re-arming of the tankettes with 20 mm guns began, but only about 24 were completed before the outbreak of World War II.In WWII 20 mm gunned TKS commanded by sergeant Roman Orlik destroyed three German Panzerkampfwagen 35(t) tanks! When I got interested in Poland in WWII first thing i did was check TKS, and your creation came up (a year ago), I check then all your creations on brickshelf. I remember you made also a MOC of the Warsaw Uprising. You recaptured the photo of a German Tank captured by Poles in lego. :)
Hi Peter Ah! I'm glad you could identify my avatar, you really know well the Polish Army. Thanks for all the info on the TKS, I didn't know all of that. For the Warsaw Uprising MOC, sorry it's not mine; I think you make a mistake. Anyway thanks again for your comment it's really appreciated.

I hate to disagree with Peter Nap, but PZL P.11c was the main fighter of Poland in 1939, and there was only one flying prototype of PZL 50 produced. On the other hand, PZL P.11 was probably the best fighter in the world between 1933-35 and there were plans to replace it with PZL 50 and a few other great projects like PZL-48 (in 1941)or PZL-62 (1942/43) .Anyway, great moc, very smooth fuselage and great landing gear. So nice to see polish plane:)

Quoting Peter Nep Many wrote here that Poland was outdated. Well that is just a myth made by German Propagandists, these planes were being withdrawn from the Polish army and new fighter planes were put in like "P50A Jastrzab." P-50A as a main Polish fighter had much better maneuverability characteristics than British Hurricane or Spitfire and excellent visibility from highly placed cockpit. The only weakness was unsatisfactory maximum speed (too weak radial engine). P-50 from the beginning was design to use powerful polish engine PZL Waran or (1400-1600 hp) PZL Legwan. Poles also had in 1939 the most modern bomber the "PZL.37 Los." WWII started when Poland was in the stage of modernizing, but still Polish Pilots were better trained then German or Ally pilots. And I have to say that this is an exellent MOC! I have tried to do this plane aswell in lego, but I gave up because I had no idea what I can do with the landing gear. Nice work!
Wow nice comments many thanks !!! Can you identify my avatar? (Hint it's a Polish vehicule also)

Great build. A more obscure selection, but clearly shows how mismatched some of the countries were at the outbreak of the war. Keep us posted on your book progress, sounds interesting. I can help MLCAD some illustrations if needed.

I live in Poland, so this creation caught my eye. They have one of these at the local Air museum, a short walk from where I live. It's a pretty plane, but not an especially effective fighter in the end. This is a suburb model of it. A++ :)

A very nice rendition of an attractive aircraft, although both look a little old-fashioned. Ah well, that's the Second World War Poles for you.

For the bigger cowling, the part is the 30324 Wheel Hard with Treads or the 3739 Wheel Technic 24 x 43. It needs to change your design a lot : the fuselage behind the engine must be 5 studs wide. You have to use 1/2 stud device. It would ease for the windshield too. The new propeller : the 2 blade 9 diameter.

Quoting john lamarck Very good work and original subject but you should : - change the propeller - replace the cowling for a bigger one - lower the landing gear device - change the tail wheel - add a windscreen. Here's a link :http://www.aviastar.org/pictures/poland/pzl_p-11.gif
Hi John, thanks for your comments. Good catch for the windscreen, I forgot to put one - DUH !!! For your other comments, specialy for the landing gear, I think it's impossible to change my design, and if you look at the picture of the airplane, the one on the real model is also quite high. I think I will leave it like it is now. For the cowling (thank!!! I learn a new english word!!!). I don't know what piece to use, instead of the 41531 (Technic 4 x 4 Round Pin Connector Block with 3 Pin Holes), do you have a suggestion? It need to be bigger, but not longuer, or otherwise it will not fit.
