Visitors Sky-Fighter Remastered

Visitors Sky-Fighter Remastered

Hello everybody! I am pleased to resubmit my first project on LEGO ideas. This model is based on V (the television series of 1984-85) and it represents a Sky-Fighter, the popular fighting shuttle of the Visitors’ army.

The previous model has been improved in many aspects, in order to be more similar to the original shuttle shown in the television series. For example; the nose of the shuttle has an improved streamlined design, the legs of the landing gear resemble a bit more to the original ones, and the rear hatch has been rebuilt.

Furthermore, the images submitted in this project have been previously rendered, whereas on the first project they were simply screenshots of the LDD program.

Main Features

Bricks: 900 approximately.

Size: 32.5 cm (length), 23 cm (width), 12 cm (high).

Stickers: One in the nose and two in the wings, showing the Visitors’ emblem.

The access door is formed by two foldable sections. upper one is part of the wing and it folds up to 90º upwards. The lower one is part of the lateral body and it folds 90º downwards, turning into a gangway.

The landing gear is formed by three retractable legs; a front one located under the cockpit, and two more on the sides under the wings. Each leg is connected to a support base by means of a ball joint that allows its movement in all directions. During the flight, the legs are lodged within the aircraft and covered by landing gear doors.

The rear hatch folds 90º upwards, providing access to the gunner’s compartment. The laser cannons slide forwards, protruding from the small opening left by a hinged panel.

Minifigures

Diana: Commander of the Mother ship over Los Angeles.

Reptilian humanoid 1: Sky-Fighter’s Pilot.

Reptilian humanoid 2: Sky-Fighter’s Gunner.
