Fly Bavaria

Lego Douglas DC-3

It’s a grey January winter’s day here at TLCB Towers, and we’re already pondering sunnier climes. So too is Vaionaut of Flickr it seems, having built this wonderful Douglas DC-3 airliner. Launched in the 1930s the American Douglas DC-3 revolutionised air travel, becoming the default airliner for decades thereafter, and is – incredibly – still in use today. Vaionaut’s beautifully built model is pictured here in German Bavaia livery (complete with a neat 1972 Munich olympics decal) and there’s more to see of his gorgeous creation at his photostream.

Buffalo Airways

Lego Buffalo Airways Ice Pilots DC-3

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!

DC-3

DC-3

Back when flying was very, very cool

This incredible creation is MrSsorg‘s beautiful Douglas DC-3 Airliner, resplendent in chrome and white and with a fully fitted interior. You may have noticed this post is filed under ‘Lego’ rather than ‘Model Team’; well that’s because this creation is genuinely mini-fig scale. Click the link in this text to see more at MrSsorg’s Flickr page.
