Hello, LEGOŽ fans! On my homepage, I stated that one of my past hobbies was making model airplanes. I am really happy to have built one of my favorite WWII airplanes in LEGOŽ. Ever since I saw a B-17 in person, and got to go inside of it, I always thought how cool it would be to make one... Well, I did!
About this creation


The crew welcomes you aboard, "The Goliath."




Basic overview.




On many planes, pilots, gunners, and mechanics would inscribe their signatures on the plane. Can you spot Captain BrickBuilder7622's signature?




Since this plane was so big, I decided to entitle it, "The Goliath."




"No Step," was a common decal on many planes, used as a cautionary warning for an unsafe area on the plane.




Random letter identification code and American aircraft symbol.




On some B-17s, the tail fin would consist of a large letter and numbers as a way of identification.




The top turret.




The main entrance/exit of the plane. There is also a M-2 Browning machine that fits through the glass.




"Geronimo!"




The belly-turret.




The side view.



The back tire of the plane.




The two front tires of the plane. It was extremely hard to get the tires to support the heavy weight of this plane.




An overhead shot.




A front-diagonal view.




Another front-diagonal shot.




A classic photo.




A semi-overhead diagonal view.




A close-up of the cockpit.




The front view.




The back view.




In this photo, you can see the thread I used as the communication wire. The communication wire was attached to one side of the craft as depicted here.




Another side shot.




Another classic view.




Yet another very classic shot.




The right wing.




A side overhead view.




A distant overhead view.




The back portion of the plane.




An interesting shot of the wing.




A nice overlook of the cockpit.




A close-up of the thread attachment.




The bottom of the plane.




Close-up of the bomb compartment.




Another shot of the belly-turret (it is upside-down).




The bottom of the left wing.




Close-up of the wheel supports.


The Interior:





The back portion of the plane; note the fire extinguisher.




The controls to the belly-turret.




The inside of the bomb compartment.




This is the top portion of the plane; inside of it are the pilots' seats and the controls...




...and here they are.




This is the inside of the control area.




An inside view of the front turret.


The Building Process:





The picture of the outside of the B-17 was printed off Wikipedia. I used this diagram and a few other pictures to design this plane.


























And, as a final touch...



...a nice finishing photo.


Though it was hard to build, I had a lot of fun making this plane!

HAPPY BUILDING, HAVE A GREAT DAY, AND GOD BLESS! :)

Quoting Stephan N A really cool airplane. I think it's good that the whole building was also an attached survey. The stickers are really good and give the whole a very nice touch. The weapons are very well done and look very real. A truly unique work.
Whoa, thanks for such a nice comment, Stephan! I really appreciate it! :-)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 first I must admit I love your dog!...
Thanks! Lucky is such a GREAT dog! The landing gear was the hardest part to design, and while I wish they could have folded into the fuselage, I am just happy they can support the weight of the plane! :) Also, I have found a way to improve the look of the decals and will try that on my next MOC. Thanks again! God bless!

first I must admit I love your dog! just one look at this pic makes you want to take him home, xd, for the plane well, it s your first attempt, as such, it s fairly good, the landing gear is often the most difficult part to do right, especially if you want it to fold, in my last space ship, I started by the landing gear, I love the crew you designed, the proportions, and turrets, the papers however, hurt it a bit in my opinion, if you ve seen the other planes like it on the pages, you will understand why I can t say better things about it, as, it would nt be fair to their creators, but, as a model maker, you show good promise of making a great plane, as you have a good eye for detail, I can t wait to see more from you!

Quoting omega (rich) wow. that's a great plane! however the tail does need some work, the lower fines need to come down lower to match the same lowering angle as middle wing. other than that its looks great, i like how you put interior details as well as your own custom decals on the outside. 5/5 -omega
Thanks! Yeah, I know what you mean about the tail fins. I was originally going to add a tail gunner area, but I couldn't figure out how to attach it to the fuselage properly. Thanks again! :)

Quoting Isaiah Marc Wow! This creation was well worth the wait and great job on the plane, even I couldn't build as 1/2 as good as you did, also wish me luck because I am making a really large project that could be finished and posted by the end of December.
Thank you very much! I can't wait to see your MOC at the end of Dec.! :)

Quoting Alex Sonny A very nice plane! The amount of detail is very good, I really like how you made the underside wheels. All the turrets are placed perfectly, although missing firepower (the bubble canopy is hard to use anyway). amazing!
Thank you very much! :)

Quoting clayton Marchetti Capt Brickbuilder 7622 your cleared for take off! God speed. You did a fantastic job with the shaping . I love all the machine gun placements. The cockpit looks great and I love the bombardiers position great part pick for the bomb sight. I really like the decals too. I built one years ago but never posted it. Anyway you did a excellent job on the B-17.
Thank you so much! I really appreciate your comments! You are very kind! God bless! :)
