The Kondor is a high speed, low cost fighter made by the factories of Baron Michielle von Granger of Burgundy. Here we see one straight from the factory with no squadron, or even nation markings present. This fighter has a longer range then even elven built models of the same era and enough cockpit room for several hand dropped bombs to be stored.
This fighter was made famous because of it's fictional pairing with Archibald 'Goggles' Flashman in the series of Great War III novels by Lt. Cdr. George Wells, in them 'Goggles' successfully shot down over 130 dwarf and elven aircraft, a highly improbable figure given the actual statistics of the war show a 2 to 3 ratio the other way. However as propaganda it worked perfectly and many schoolboys of the Celtic North Sea Kingdoms grew up wanting to be a fighter pilot 'Just like 'Goggles' Flashman!'.
this looks great i love how it looks like a WWII bomber it just looks so cool. nice work yet again!
I like it

Excelently built! I will echo Mr. Kelso's sentiments and add that the Bionicle wings were finely utilized as well. I would like to ask you, as an employee of Lego(r), what steps should be taken towards getting a job in said company? Please email me at email@example.com. Thanks, and keep on brickin'!
Love this little build, it captures that pre-WWII plane design where they were still using guide and tension wires. Then I wonder how you have all this time to build so much! Then I remember what your job is...
