M88 Eaglet
This is my smallest (intelligent looking) minifig scale aircraft. It was a fun challenge, and presented me with a variety of techniques that are completely foreign to me. Enjoy!
About this creation

The smallest interceptor in service with the 18th, these things are extremely nimble and quick. They are said to be able to outfly a guided missile, as they better be able to, since anti-missile duty is part of their job.

Never alone, they attack in formations of at least four and up to eight on any one target.

These pilots are some of the most accurate in the galaxy, considering they only have 304 rounds to play around with. 300 for the two 20mm guns and exactly one round per cannon.

Able to operate in or out of an atmosphere, they must be launched in one environment or the other since they do not have the power to escape a gravity field, nor the facilities to withstand reentry.

I like how the angled pieces in the back filled it in at the back. That was tricky, but not overly complicated.

Yes, definitely the smallest yet for me.



Credits, yes. Goes to '2 much caffeine' on Flickr for overall inspiration.

It's rather kind of a cute looking ship. I can just imagjne this ship flying with a war music remix of Nyan Cat music playing... I got to stop watching so much YouTube.

Well, if that isn't the cutest thing! These are cheap and effective. Surely mass-produced by the thousands! Great work, 5/5.

If I were an enemy pilot I'd probably be busy laughing at the prospect of that tiny thing coming at me. I guess to die laughing is as good a way to go as any.

I love the look of it, though from the side the wings look a little too far down (the front view is much more flattering). Though I don't paticularly care for the cones on the circular brick, maybe fix it up with some better armaments?

I get the first comment! Very detailed, especially for such a small model. I like the SNOT nose.

Look a little big to outrun a missile, unless the missile is like, really big. This still has a lot more mass than most missiles.
