Here are some pictures of the basic shape of a fighter jet in minifig scale that I want to build. The wings might become movable; Iīm also planning on constructing retractable landing gears. Middle wing construction, 4 side engines + 1 (central) or 2 side jet intake(s)+ a giant afterburner/rocket-like turbo boost& the tail unit similar to the one of an F-18 Hornet will constitute the basic shape of a small, old-school, fictitious interceptor.
Since Iīm not a huge fan of playing with military, this plane is going to become rather a part of an air show team or of a private little airport accumulating older planes or something similar. Letīs see what comes out of it:)

About this creation
I donīt know yet when this plane will be finished. Iīm living in a small apartment right now, not having enough space for all of my LEGOS. Almost all of my LEGOS are at my parentsī home, and constantly disappearing down there in the basement in order to build isnīt quite nice when you can only see them every 5-6 weeks. My guess is itīll be towards may or june that I will be able to stay there a little longer and do some "construction work" again... :) But yeah, just thinking about it makes me be so excited...
A lot of things might still be changed and adapted, though. I was thinking of making the fuselage a little wider after the cockpitīs canope (for instance a change from 4 to 6 studs, effected by a transition part of those elements I used to create my C-1īs nose & tale or so, then I might prolong the fuselage as well as increasing the wingspan and width of the wings, etc. So nothingīs definitive yet; and what you see on these pictures is just the first outwork of an idea I had while building my Cargo Jet.
Concerning the color schemes, I might go for white&red patterns again, similar to the ones of the Biplane: on the level of the wings, there might either be a white stripe turning into more white at the back unit of the aircraft; or the only red part will be the entire fuselage until the beginning of the wings. Iīll find out while building and realizing what parts will still be available:)...
Comparing its size to my C-1 Stratohauler...

Steffen this looks good but i dont really like the canopy and i think the nose is a little to pointy but everything else is great i cant wait to see it finished-----David

shape looks good, but fighters don't have engines on the wings. it limits manouverability so you might want to eliminate the engines on the wings and replece them with a fuel drop tank on each wing. good start though
