A LEGO version of the awesome (if physically impossible) Mach 1+ capable attack helicopter from the 80's show of the same name. It features retractable landing gear, deployable weapons, pop out countermeasure pods, opening doors and a well detailed interior. Also includes Minifigs of Stringfellow Wawke and Dominic Santini!
About this creation
Airwolf V5.2 002

Airwolf V5.2 003

The Build Process:
     After calling the last version of my Airwolf the final version, I still kept finding ways to improve it. First I redid the top fuselage area, improving the smoothness and overall shape of thing. But that wasn’t enough; next I dismantled practically the whole middle area to add in the countermeasure pods and further improved the shaping. A few months later I finally stumbled upon some decent pictures of Airwolf’s interior and realized mine was all wrong. I dismantled the whole middle area, yet again, to redo the interior where the weapons officer sits. With all of that done, I set about to take pictures of the new Airwolf V5.

     But, after spending hours taking lots of pictures, including the highly complicated main picture above, I ended up finding yet more ways to improve the helicopter! Before I even transferred the pictures to my computer, Airwolf was back on the workbench getting new doors and even more minor tweaks to the fuselage.
     This time I did the smart thing and got all the regular pictures out of the way first, and then worked on the complex main and final pictures. So here it is and this time I’ve actually gotten in uploaded before modifying it again!

I actually found a new Minifigure torso that works a lot better and replaced these, but I’m tired of retaking pictures.

The future:
Hit head with hammer until I forget about season 4 - Wait, what?
     I am pretty happy with this model currently. The only future plan I currently have for it is to buy an old 9v micro motor so I can have the rotor spinning at shows. And unlike the landscaping that was built quickly just for this page, that tank was built on its own a while ago and took a few days. There is a lot of other stuff I want to upload, but expect to see a page for that tank at some point in the future.

Beautiful model and very faithful to the original design. Particularly enjoy all the functionality and the incredible detail on the interior. Nice!

Quoting Christopher L. Faddis I've built two versions of Airwolf before and the last was 8 pegs wide seemed too big for the Lego figure so scrapped it. This is the best idea I have seen so far. I just wish Lego would accept reality that there IS military aircraft in the world and acknowledge that so more decent parts could be fabricated. Giving you 5 stars this is good! :)
Actually you'd be surprised how big the Airwolf helicopter actually is. At least according to Wikipedia, the Bell 222 (the real helicopter used for Airwolf) is 49.5 feet long. My LEGO model is 52 studs long, and using the 1 stud = 1 foot method, that makes it about on scale. In fact, the only reason mine is about 2 studs too long was to make room for the guns to retract. As they are depicted in the TV show, the retracted guns would have occupied the same spot as the landing gear!

Quoting Sputnik The Third That it is a sweet looking helicopter. Since you seem to like eighties tv shows and cars are your specialty you should do the A-Team van.
I have a mini A-Team van, but I haven't gotten around to making an 8-wide version yet. I kind of want to make KITT from Knight Rider first, but I haven't had as much time for building as I would have liked lately. Honestly I need to take inventory too, I am low on so many parts, but don't remember which ones until I start building something and realize I need them!

Quoting Sven ;o) Awesome work on this one. It has a lot of features and great details. Nicely done. Fun fact is that the real Bell 222 was sold to Germany after the Airwolf TV series ended and it was stationed only one mile away from my home. So I could see it every day flying by ;)
Wow, it's pretty cool that you lived so close to it! A little sad though too, given that it crashed and everybody died. Thanks for the comment!

Quoting Nick Barrett In the intro I'm sure you meant deployable; this model is very far from deplorable! I love the way you continue to improve an already great model - there's always something! I'm old enough to remember this on TV too...
Laaa!!! This is what I get for uploading stuff late at night, or being dyslexic, it's one of those! Thanks for catching that, and thanks for the great comment!

Wow! This is positively brilliant! I love the gif. Animations showing all the wonderful features you included. I love the chaff launcher. The shaping of the fuselage looks fantastic and I love the interior. I can hear that growling noise now. Magnificent work!

Awesome! I must agree with Sven. Great work on the features and functions. Very nice work on the overall shape too :-)
