We don’t blog planes all that much here at The Lego Car Blog, but sometimes a model arrives that is so stupendously brilliant that we forget our car bias for a bit. This is one of those times.
This magnificent creation is a 1:15 scale, 8,000 piece replica of the formidable carrier-based F-14A ‘Tomcat’. It’s been built over the last 9 months crash_cramer of Flickr, and it’s a truly remarkable build. With LEGO Power Functions operating various aeronautical functionality, custom LED engine sequencing, custom decals, and a vacuum-formed canopy, the attention to detail, even if it’s not quite all LEGO, is astonishing.
The whole model measures well over 1.2 metres long and it’s really worth a closer look. You can see all of the incredible images on Flickr – click the link above and wind the catapult back.
