YF-1415 "Supercat"
An imaginary fighter jetplane of my own.
About this creation
Features:

Retractable landing gear fully escamotable,
dorsal air brake,
functionnal horizontal stabilizers,
variable geometry wing,
missiles and external fuel tank.
Includes Pilot and Radar Intercept Officer minifigs.


30% smaller than a Tomcat (minifig scale).
The shape is a mix between a Grumman F-14, McDonnel Douglas F-15 and also Su-27 and Mig-29 (there are my favorite modern jetfighters).
The 4953 set was a good foundation to work on it but according to me,
the original plane made by Lego was too ugly. So I decided to improve it.
I'm very hard to please with airplanes you know :-)
(I did the same with the Megabloks P-51 Mustang set).
I have kept only the wings and the engines for my moc, all the rest is new or modified.
I think it's far better and more realistic like this, but maybe I'm wrong,
so please let me know if you like it.

Quoting Ralph Savelsberg that the original 4953 left a few things to be desired. It's a nice set, but the forward fuselage on it looked a bit odd. Your rebuild is very original, but it too looks a bit oddly proportioned. It would probably look better if the whole nose-section were mounted lower and had a nose that pointed downwards slightly. I too am hard to please when it comes to aircraft ;-). Still, a nice MOC. Cheers, Ralph
Your wish has been granted with Mk III

I don't know about anyone else, but I prefer this to the newer version. It reminds me of a MIG.

Very MiG-29ish. I agree with the first reviewer, it should have a 2x2 cone for a nose, if you have the peice.

Haha-its a thunderbird (the squadron, not the TV show...)! or at first glance looks like one. The forward feusalage and nose are too fat for my liking and perhaps some Su-27 influence on the nose would look good, but would conflict with the cockpit. If you were to rebuild it, perhaps you could remove the second canopy and seat and replace it with something which tapers more softly into the wing area and also make the nose more cone shaped. But its already great, Alex.

Very good desighn, but if you could stretch it out to about 45-55 studs long and replace the 1/1 plate on the tip of the nose with a 2/2 cone I personaly think it would look better. ~ Jack P.S. There is no General Dynamics F-15. There are the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon and Boeing (formerly McDonnel Douglas) F-15 Eagle.
