Narrow-body Jetliner P-1 "Falcon"
My first commercial airliner, the P-1 "Falcon" narrow-body jetliner. Due to its large wings, it has long-range capacities, but is primarily used on short-haul and medium-long flight routes. The title picture shows the boarding of a P-1 "Falcon" aircraft.

About this creation
While building this, I thought a lot of my friend Stephen Abbott, another aviation fan here on MOCpages with a focus on commercial aviation.
And then, some people have been asking me if I could build a passenger aircraft. Well, this is my first one. :)


The Falcon's side profile


Esthetics and functionality were important to me while building the Falcon.


Working control surfaces all over the aircraft: wing flaps, rudder of altitude and side rudder - everything functions!


If this was a car, I would say it has a pretty nice chassis:) - I like that tail...


Lower fuselage, wing underside and landing gear displayed


Main gear details


Main gear retracted


Front gear retracted


Extendable emergency stairs right at the root of the wing body


Baggage handling dudes:)...





Spread your wings and fly? Along the Falcon's leading edge.


Very SWOOOSHABLE:)


















Nose & tail design











The Falcon as seen from the rear-top perspective







Space for a pilot and co-pilot: the cockpit interior. Sorry for the poor quality, it was very hard to phohotgraph!


The entire fuselage can be opened easily like this, or by opening the two seperate opening flaps for the cabin and the cockpit. As you can see here, I had to use two boat/train weights to keep the nose down (the Falcon is a little tail-heavy). So I lost two seats for passengers in the cab - oh well! :)










Finally, a line-up of KAAI's most recently produced aircraft - from left to right:
1. MH-81 "Bear" Transport Helicopter & Gunship 2. P-1 "Falcon" Jetliner 3. CH-93 "Sparrow" Utility & Stunt Helicopter





Feel free to rate and comment. I am always thankful for constructive criticism!

Hey Boris, thank you very much! I am afraid I cannot hand you any LDD drawings, as I don´t work with that at all. I just build with real bricks out of my imagination. Just love to make up a great concept for an aircraft and realizing it with what I have, using my hands and all... I´m sorry! :(

I love your airliner models.They are the best i've seen,and probably the best there's going to be.Do you think you might be able to make your airliner models on ldd and send them to me?It's okay if you can't,but if you can,that would be nice.

Nice man! I love the sleek lines and the angled wings. If it haad a swing wing design and a little different paint job, this could pass of as the Carridas 160 off of the Tintin comic, Flight 714!

Wow this is fantastic! I'm blow away by the amount of details you put in this plane. I really like your round edge wings on the front of the plane. Great job!

awesome! Nice aircraft, just the tail is a little bit to big , but an awesome MOC anyway!

Great stuff! I am always impressed by your technique for gradually forming the nose/tail with stepping the blocks like that. Worlds better than the preform noses and tails Lego has on their new airliner kits. Now I'm inspired to go rebuild my airliner ;) Thanks!

Great jet. I especially like the front landing gear details. Have you ever thought of doing a model of an AWACS? The curves for the dome could be interesting.

I agree with Maxim, I don't any skill in building these kinds of planes. Awesome job, Steffen

Excellent work on the wings. Its very original. Also your engines are a masterpiece themselves. Keep up the good work!

A very good first attempt at a jetliner.You should try improving the vertical tailfin.And the windows also.

This is your first try? I guess I better get to looking at your next ones. Very nice mix of looks and functions. I like the contouring of the fuselage, including the nose.

Hey, thank you so much for those kind words, Sithan, Marc and Jake! To the big tail: I guess I have a "weakness" for big, mighty T-tails...:) One leading edge of the tail is 12,8 cm long, one leading edge of the wing 31,5 cm. A bit more than a third (relation 1:3, roughly - a tad bigger). But looking at some real "T-tailed" airliners like the Russian Tu-134 shows that they actually do get kind of big sometimes: http://www.suchoj.com/andere/index.htm?http://www.suchoj.com/andere/Tu-134/home.shtml I have only noticed that on T-tails, which is why I tend to make them quite big. Best regards, Steffen

Well done indeed mate! As the man below me said, I really like your style, you use a lot of creative design to make a plane that looks truly excellent! Well done, and keep bricking.

What a great plane, I really love your style. The mix of studed and studless areas is very nice. I dont know what I like most about it: the coulour scheme, the sleek lines, or the working functions, giving it such awesome playability!? It must be the whole package! My only point of criticism would be that the T-tail seems a little bit too big when compared to the rest of the plane, but thats no big deal! ~Cheers, Marc

In my opinion, your best MOC to date. Great lines on this one - looks very much like the Russian built Tupulev TU-134. Nice job!

Thanks a lot everyone:)! @ Family Vuurzoon: Like all my other aircraft so far, the P-1, just as the company KAAI, is made-up. Just an invention to make it sound real. KAAI=Kasteleiner Aircraft & Aerospace Industries. :) But Im glad you like it and thought it was real - cause its supposed to come across as realistic as possible. Steffen

Wow Steffen! This is great, it's a very cool looking plane, not to mention I just love the color scheme. You can chalk this one up as a win my friend! ~T

Hi Steffen, Excellent jetliner! Altough I am not a plane expert, it looks very realistic. And the details like the emergency stairs are super! Suggestion: maybe you can add a picture of the real P-1?

Dadgum, you seriously make me ashamed of myself, Steffen! But in a very good way! ;) I love how you never fail to bring out the best using any Lego element imaginable. Your designs are so amazingly realistic and detailed yet you refrain from over-indulging and using too many pieces. I keep having to remind myself that better doesn't always mean bigger, and this is a very fine example. I love what you do; thanks for your continual inspiration! I can't wait to get back to my home where my Legos are . . . it'll be another three weeks, but I look foward to getting back into the groove. You really are a great friend. ~ Stephen

I just love your planes, they are always worth the wait. They look great, but are also so true to the Legoland look of old, nad so playable. Love your work...

Hey, thanks Rafael! I tried to go for a different way to make the nose cone, and half stud off-sets seemed to be the right thing for the nose section here. Also, the nose cone piece flows very well with the decreasing rest of the nose, I thought. The C-3 - oh well - I still havnt continued it yet. I have something else that has priority right now - at least one or two more creations, and then Ill get back to the C-3 - and partly redesign certain features before actually continue building it.
