It’s mid-winter here at The Lego Car Blog Towers. There’s been no snow this year (just lots of rain and flooding) however if you’re reading this from northern America you’ve probably had enough snow for the both of us. The hit History Channel TV show ‘Ice Pilots‘ follows the Buffalo Airways crew, one of the companies tasked with keeping the Canadian arctic operational, as they battle the snow and ice in their classic aircraft during the freezing arctic winter.
Buffalo Airways’ iconic Douglas DC-3 delivery plane has been recreated by builder Ssorg and Mikey McBryan from the Ice Pilots programme, and we’ve been contacted directly to show you their efforts.
Ssorg’s mini-figure version of the classic aircraft features a host of playable features, including a complete interior, opening stepped doors, and functional landing gear, and it matches LEGO’s own ‘modular Town’ building style beautifully.
Ssorg, Mikey and the Buffalo Airways team would love to see their Douglas DC-3 become a real LEGO set, and if you’d like a DC-3 model of your own you can make it happen, just visit LEGO’s Cuusoo website and give the creation your vote!
