The Stinger is a small VTOL ground support and attack aircraft.
About this creation
Thank you for checking out my Lego creation! The Stinger a small, one-person military aircraft with VTOL capability (vertical take-off and landing) that serves in ground support and attack roles. This build is a slight departure from the usual sci-fi spacecraft that I like to create. However, it still fits within the futuristic vein of most of my Lego creations.

The central piece to this build that spawned the rest of the model was the dark gray bi-level wing piece with the circular engine intakes. The idea was to design a futuristic yet realistic attack aircraft that could fly and hover like a helicopter. Certain mecha inspired elements, such as the rocket launcher pods, helped add a gritty, utilitarian flair to an otherwise elegantly shaped airframe.



Head-on view of the Stinger. The dual pulse laser cannon is slung below the nose with the red targeting scanner just above it.



A semi-profile view. The wings serve as fixed landing struts as well as weapons pylons.



This view from slightly above shows the main powerplant for the Stinger. The central mounted turbofan engine can rotate 90 degrees up and down for flight and take-off and landing or hovering. Two smaller jet engines alongside the cockpit provide additional lift.

Nice build. Not sure how I feel about the top mounted missile pods though.

A nice looking VTOL gunship. The thing that stands out to me is the stores. I like how you've use the different engine pods to give curved bodies to the weapons. My favorites are the wing-tip missiles, with their coke-bottle shaping. Great work!

This thing looks fierce. Kinda reminds me of the Orca from C&C crossed with the dropship from Aliens. Nice work!
