F117A Nighthawk Stealth Plane
The F117A Stealth Attack Plane.
About this creation
The scale is 1:72 and the proportions can be compared with the bought die-cast model pictured. The height is exaggerated to accomodate a seated mini-figure as required by the "Jet Fighter Competition" rules, but a brick layer could be removed if the figure was not required. This would give a more realistic profile. Although given the prefix designation "F", the F-117 is really a bomber, but multi-role versions were proposed with wing hardpoints and air-to-air missiles.

The BLU-109 improved performance 2,000 pound bomb was developed in 1985 under the project name HAVE VOID. The BLU-109 is designed for use against hardened structures and features a high-strength forged steel case and a new delayed-action tail fuse. It carries 550 pounds of high explosives and can penetrate more than six feet of reinforced concrete. GBU-31(V)3/B JDAM-equipped bombs are guided by an integrated inertial guidance system coupled to a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, giving them a published range of up to 15 nautical miles (28 km). The guidance system was developed by the United States Air Force and United States Navy, hence the "joint" in JDAM. The JDAM was meant to improve upon laser-guided bomb and imaging infrared technology which can be hindered by bad ground and weather conditions. Laser designators are now being fitted to some JDAMs.

Quoting clayton Marchetti I really like how you tackled the really tough angles around the nose and cockpit. I love how you achieved wing angles. Excellent work!
Thanks again, Clayton!

Quoting Lego 4 Life Very impressive! I tried many times making aircrafts on LDD but failed.
Thank you for the comment. Sorry half the photographs have not been put back on yet. Your LDDs are all excellent, so don't put yourself down! I have never attempted to make a virtual creation. Perhaps I should? I think it is wonderful how the world has moved on enough for us all to have put the tragedy of the past behind us. I wish your country a very bright future.

Quoting Jay Rhum Your creations deserve more than a poor 7!
Thanks for the very kind remarks! I take more notice of the number of hits than the "Like this" scores as people often do not have the time (or inclination) to leave a comment.

That's what I don't like on MOCpages. Your vehicle is great, but no one notice you! It take ages to have votes and comments! To be honnest, I had to present lots of time my Titan to builders! In order to be noticed... :-)

Quoting ccy 8086 A 1:72 LEGO F117?! Well done!
Thanks for the kind comment. The Lego tailplane pieces just seemed to fit that scale nicely and I worked from there.

A very accurate shaping of the main fuselage. Good detail work and use of older slope bricks which fit with the (tri)angular nature of the source aircraft. Well done.
