SR-79 Graybird. A stealth bomber, capable of space flight.
About this creation
Inspired by the design of the SR-71 Blackbird, the SB-79 Graybird is a smaller, faster version of the supersonic spy plane of the 1960's. Capable of carrying nuclear bombs and warheads, the SB-79 is a true stealth, invisible to radar. With a top speed approaching mach 9, the SB-79 is able to break earth's orbit, thus it is also classified as a space ship. Slow speed maneuverability was not compromised in the design, the SB-79 stall speed is 86 mph.
Nuclear power is the secret to the SB-79's speed. Advancements in technology have lead to the nuclear engine. Through a classified process the nuclear engines of the jet can develop 85,000 lbs. of thrust.
Because the SB-79 is nuclear, it is able to remain airborne for 72 hours. On one mission it may circle the earth 475 times, with each trip taking just over 6.5 hors. You don't want to know the secret to how the pilot remains airborne for 72 hours though...
Wow, a very nice stealth design you invented there! Iīm impressed by the nose section and the giant engines - they really give it a beast-like appearence. The underside fuselage parts look good here, but unfortunately donīt allow the builder to make retractable landing gear - something I think would look very cool on your fighter. Maybe you could rather build the fuselage out of smaller pieces, like inverted slopes? Cause stealth aircraft shouldnīt be to round anyways, I think. Either way, though: a fierce looking stealth design! Cheers, Steffen
Well done, Mr. Legoman. Nice commentary on a cool Lego aircraft. For 85,000 pounds of thrust, I'd expect a little more flame, though. Maybe the pilot is just trying to light the candles on the general's birthday cake. I'm glad you found a use for all those airplane bottoms. I have enough of those to build a fleet of SR-79 Graybirds. Thanks for sharing!
