Boredom + a lot of spare plates = Blackbird
About this creation
The other day I noticed I had a rather large amount of black plates lying around. Then the idea of building this came into my head!

Obviously this isn't the best Lego Blackbird around, but I quite like it in its own rather studdy way... I know that not everyone is a fan of the studs (I'm not, usually!) but I think it adds a bit of character. Plus I always enjoy MortalSwordsman's studded creations! It was built entirely from memory, too, so the shaping is not perfect either.









Thanks for viewing!

Quoting XY EZ Perfect shape! 5/5 8-)
...Actually, it isn't - I built it from memory, and the shape is wrong. But I'm glad it appears right ;) Thank you!

Quoting Alexander Paschoaletto great bird, man! even without smooth plates you make magic with bricks. I really like this, and thanks for telling me about my award on TLCB. But I have to say that it should be you, and not me, on that list. Your creations smashes any of mine!
Thank you very much Alexander! And your welcome, but don't under estimate yourself!

Quoting sam the first cool bananas , man! i'd love to see a larger scale blackbird!
Thanks! A larger scale Blackbird - not likely. A more detailed one at this scale - possible.

Quoting Nils O. I don't know what's happening, the censorship filter is "eating" my comments ;-)) OK then ... Yeah, the black beast! It might be a little "studdy" for my taste, but shaping is cool, especially considering the rather small scale. Well done! :-))
Thanks Nils! Nothing wrong with a few studs ;) Thanks again!

Quoting Stephen Barnes Very good and very recognisable. I'd have smoothed it out with tiles, rather than studs and maybe used some round engines from a Star Wars kit.
Thanks Stephen. If I was going to build it properly then I would make it smooth and sort out the shaping issues.

Quoting Ape Fight Nice use of some leftover black parts. Perhaps not as detailed as it could be if you'd decided to build one using all your bricks (e.g the twin rear fins aren't angled, jets are pretty square etc.) but still a solid 3/5.
Thanks Ape - you are absolutely right. If I was to build it properly those are two details that would be corrected.

Quoting Ryan Link Ah, the Blackbird! Always a classic, and you've done it justice. The shaping looks about right from my memory too; it's always challenging to build something like this without a visual reference, nicely done!
Thanks a lot Ryan. Its lucky I was building a Jet with such a distinctive and memorable shape! Thanks again!

Quoting Joao Campos You captured very well the general shape and proportions. I also think that it's a bit too studdy, but I guess in this scale it would be nearly impossible to do better. All in all, well done!
Thanks a lot! Like I said I know not everyone likes studs showing. If I was to do it properly, it would most likely be smooth. Thanks again!

Quoting Achintya Prasad Not too bad, not too bad. I tried something like this, years ago, but my collection of black plates wasn't large then. I would try to make the engine more round, but still, a good 5/5.
Thanks! I made it very quickly and almost entirely out of basic plates, so I wasn't so bothered about the imperfections. Thanks again!
