The SF-1000, or "Night Owl," is a minifig scale fighter jet for my Lego Air Force. It is very clear that most of the design and styling is inspired by the F-22, but I didn't originally intend for it to come out looking so close. The wings and vertical stabilizers are are shaped differently (pointier) and the engines are further apart. The biggest difference would be that it is much smaller than the F-22 at my scale of building. This model features retractable gear, an opening nose cone, opening missile bays, pivoting stabilizers, moving ailerons (sorry, no flaps), a 30mm cannon, pivoting thrusters, an opening canopy, and opening engine bays. Enjoy!
Engine bay. On a real aircraft they would be further aft but they work for me this way.
The radar in the nose cone (that's as far forward as I could get it). I think it's a sewer grate tile.
AGM in the side missile bay.
The cannon (by Brickarms)
The bottom with all bays open. There are two AAMs in the main bay.
This is excellent. You have created great shapes and playability in what is really a fairly small aircraft. Well refined with every piece looking sleek and in its place yet more functional than most SNOT creations. Your landing gear is well integrated and hidden when closed and the model doesn't sit too low on the gear. It is boxy in places and the nose is a bit off, but it does contain a built radar and the overall cleanness of the build wins my 5/5. My Black Eagle isn't quite as polished as this and I regret running out of good pieces for It because this shows what it could have looked like. Would you check it out? It might give you more ideas. Keep on building.
