Entry to Jeffery Smith´s fighter jet contest: KAAI F-90 "Cyclone" (MOC Of The Day of July 17, 2010)
“No compromises” is the essence of KAAI´s most recent fighter project built in series, a large, massive multi-role delta-winged aircraft designated as “F-90”, code name “Cyclone”. Due to the delta wing body generating a maximum of lift in combination with the extremely steep wing sweep, the F-90 is able to fly at speeds lower than Mach 0.5 as well as speeds beyond Mach 3. Two giant jet intakes underneath the leading edges “feed” the enormous engines, which catapult the aircraft to the take-off speed of 320km/h within only 750 meters of runway. The standard armament consists of 6 to 10 laser- and heat-guided, multifunctional state-of-the-art missiles and two gatling canons underneath the leading edges. Up to 3 additional drop tanks can be mounted to the F-90, providing necessary long-range capacities without an earlier need of in-air refuelling. Instead of the drop tanks, 2 to 3 heavy, guided bombs or four more missiles can be fixed underneath the wings and the rear end of the fuselage. The F-90´s potential payload of weapons and the considerable speed range turn it into a very versatile aircraft: The “Cyclone” provides air superiority in dogfights; its speed capacities allow its role as an excellent state-of-the-art interceptor as well as the performance of air-to-ground attacks.
About this creation
Product fact file:

Product Name: KAAI F-90 "Cyclone"

Developer: Kasteleiner Aircraft & Aerospace Industries (KAAI)

Field of operations: Various: air superiority; intercepting; attack missions

Crew: 1 pilot

Dimensions: Total length: 59 studs (from nose stinger to the top of the empennage)
Lenght of fuselage: 48 studs (nose-to-engines)
Wingspan: 37 studs
Maximum Height: 16,5 bricks

Powerplant: 2 × Stratohunter SC 320 afterburning turbofan

Engine power: Dry thrust: 2 × 88 kn
Thrust with afterburner: 2 × 120 kn

Speed Range: - Mach 0,5 to Mach 3 +

Rate of climb: 375m/s

Service ceiling: 22.890m

Empty weight: 13.100 kg
Loaded weight: 17.100 kg
Max. takeoff weight: 26.300 kg

Supercruise capacity: clean Mach 1,7

Thrust/weight: 1.24

Standart armament: 2 × Glock M-350 gatling canons
10 laser- and heat-guided state-of-the-art "Cobra-R.13" missiles
OR 6 × "Cobra-R.13" missiles + 2 heavy guided bombs (various types)
OR 6 × "Cobra-R.13" + 2 side-mounted additional drop tanks



Some nice features of the aircraft are based on the overall functional design – everything works, folds and retracts: wing flaps, the rear side rudder of the vertical stabilizer and the landing gear. Even the landing gear flaps work, covering/closing the shafts while the landing gear is completely retracted and looking pretty sweet while the plane is on the ground or in the process of landing.
The cockpit is quite elevated and offers a high degree of visibility to the pilot; it can be reached by the mobile stairs which came with the original Lego jetliner LC-7893. The nose cone, the intakes and the angle of the empennage looking quite sleek, together with the studless wings, give the F-90 a pretty fast appearance. I just really like how everything turned out this time, especially in comparison to my first fighter plane, the “Thunderspecter”
for which I had to make too many compromises due to a lack of good pieces.

Credits go to Vincent Desrochers whose awesome “Avro CF-105 Arrow 203”
featured the use of the little “surf board stick” as the basis of a functional rear rudder which I used as such as well!

So yeah, have fun checking out the pictures and tell me what you think about it!:)

Oh, before I forget - here´s a link to Jeffery´s “Fighter Jet Contest” where you will find information about the rules and procedure.

Since I really like the entire airport theme, here are some pictures from the ramp:):















The "airport bitches":) haha I´m just joking - that´s what I´m right now for as long as I´m a student. Fortunately, at FRA they only make me do "animal work" every once and a while - most of the time, I´m a driver on the apron...





























The empennage / vertical stabilizer which I really like. For the use of the "surfboard stick" piece, all credits go to Vincent Desrochers who applied it at his “Avro CF-105 Arrow 203”

I love the fictive concept, but the difficult part by building fictive planes is than you need to put many details as a real plane,but to not copy whats on real aircraft, anyway thats I'm thinking , but Honestly youre doing a really great job with planes,I did a fictive model to , but I don't Write things like climbing speed ,engines power and others stats , and I think a will do it for my second version of my combat aircraft, because it's adding some reality , if you can understand me , Anyway Greatr Job And Keep Building 5/5

steffen my good frend, it seems that we have the same love for every good looking flying machine. everything that i wan't to comment is already commented by you. it got something mysterious don't you think so? steffen here, steffen there, steffen everywhere! :p. but it was a good desission to take a look at your mocs! you really got that tallent that i'm dreaming of. i'am 14 years old, and everyone think that i'am a small child to play with te most genious toy ever invited! :@. how old are you actually? you must be about 16 years old if you developed you building tallent so good! i'am building on a cargo plane, type: fantasy, and a harrier jump jet. come and take a look soon ore, mayby, now. i hope that you'll like it. see you soon, sietse.

Quoting Daiman Mardon I can't imagine how many problems you had to solve on this build. Great MOC.
Hey, thank you Daiman! I have to admit that this was one of the most challenging builds I have attempted so far. I wanted it to be as perfect as possible, without compromising. And it indeed did take quite a long time to build, but also because I have to search for parts forever & because I´m picky. I might work on the front part of the nose a bit, which I admit could have been a tad better. I´ll change something about it some time soon. Steffen

Thank you for all the comments on my creations. In the picture on my home page I actually just used a lamp and several other techniques from Alex Eylar's lighting tutorial. I really enjoy your planes as well. I like this one though, specifically for its complex style and colours. It really creates a realistic feel.

This is excellent Steffen! I'm seeing some vast improvements since some of your first creations. There are a few things here and there, the tip of the nose isn't as smooth as it could be, but the functionality and sleekness of the fuselage is outstanding. Functional landing gear just about always gets a 5 from me, and this is no exeption. The 'Coke-bottle' looks great. Great job! EDIT: I'm helping Jeffery with the judging, so I figured you might like to know this got 57/60 from me. Great job! -- -- Michael

Hallo Steffen es würde mich nicht wundern wenn du mit diesem Jet gewinnst! Ich hab dir übrigens eine E-Mail geschickt. Falls du sie nicht gelesen hast: Ich bin aus Langen. Auf dem Weinfest in Neu Isenburg war ich nicht, neulich war auch so was ähnliches in Langen, war allerdings nich da (trinke noch keinen Wein!)und Danke für deinen Kommentar auf meine Voyager!

@ Adam: I know the nose cone could be better, but I really don´t own the parts I´d like to have onhand while building. The gap between the radome and the cone is too big, but this compromise seemed better than creating the cone with different pieces I own. The radome would be cooler with an added 1*2 cylindric grey piece, but again I don´t own one. @ John Lamarck: I partly agree on the nose cone aspect, but I really do like the figure - if you meant the "profile" of the plane - and wouldn´t want to change it.

Hey guys, thanks a lot for all the great reviews! It´s gonna be interesting what the other participants will create - I can´t wait to see more entries... I think Jeffery´s idea for such a contest was very cool - I like creating my own aircraft designs more than real ones, cause it allows me to be more creative myself.

right, forgot the score, well, I have no complains about any aspect of the fighter but I saw the score is /60. I like the weapons (10), I don't think they can be improved in any waywith the wings and landing gear you showed some great building techniques (10) and some very creative too (10). You gave a lot of information, like lenght, arms,...(10). The name is well chose too (10), Cyclone, I rate 60/60, the highest score because I think this is the best

Very cool indeed! I see you are a fellow jet lover? I think this MOC is top class and does justice to just about any jet I've seen. The top view reminds me of the Mirage 2000, and from the side, the Mig 29 Fulcrum. Very nice. Come and check out My Veritech fighters (VF-1's) if you get a chance! They are Jet Fighters from the series ROBOTECH which can transform into two other modes! I am pretty happy with them.

An AMAZING creation, Steffen. I agree you could win this. 10/10 for the profile, the gradual slope of the spine is very cool and I lvoe how the delta wings look. 9/10 for the weapons, the arrangment of them makes alot of sense with the centreline tanks and the inward tanks and the outward missiles. 10/10 for building techniques with the SNOT wings and cool nose construction. 9/10 for creativity, its very, very unique! 10/10 for information, there's so much!!! 10/10 for teh cool naem, too. great job!!!58/60

This is simply awsome, exept the nose, which can only realy be descibed as "messy" IMO. The landing gear covers fould use to work so they completly cover the wheels and whatnot. The hardpoints could use work too, but I was never good with them anyway. But this is an astronomical improvement over previous fighters, well done.
