Too Close For Missiles, I’m Switching To Guns

Lego Top Gun F-14 Tomcat

Simultaneously the most homo-erotic* and brilliant film of all time, 1986’s Top Gun is the best airplane movie ever made. Starring Tom Cruise (before he got all annoying) and Anthony Edwards as Top Gun students Maverick and Goose, plus Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis and Meg Ryan, it was such a box office smash that the coked-up producers even remade it a few years later with the exact same plot and set it in NASCAR**.

This wonderful recreation of Maverick and Goose’s F-14 Tomcat (complete with Maverick and Goose themselves) is the work of TLCB regular and Lego building genius Ralph Savelsberg. With the best detailing you’re likely to see this year it’s well worth flying over to Flickr to see the full gallery. Join us there by clicking the link.
