This submission is based off the Wraith-Wing design that was
conceptualized from the SR-71 Blackbird’s Delta-Wing. I love the look of the
plane and wanted to try and design it into what a spaceship might look like. I
have used this wing and ship design in a previous build but with a different
Taking constructive criticism and suggestions I incorporated
more playable features in this ships design. Growing up in the 80's and 90's the
space series of LEGO sets were my first loves. Bring Space Back!
Having built the ship in LDD then piecing the bricks, I have one of these hanging on my wall. At times I just stare at it but then have to take it down just to get a closer look. Art like but build to be held, what better excuse than for LEGO.
The design has a 360-degree laser turret on the rear of the
ship along with a cargo hold capable of holding two holding cells and guards
for any unruly space dwellers. Along the main haul you will find a trio of support
ships attached using magnetic mounts. At the front a functional cabin canopy to
allow easy access to the pilot seat.
The ship has a flat lower haul allowing it to sit with the
mounting base, but for the base I wanted to pay homage to the past LEGO Space
Police series. One the base there is one Red, two Green, and three Blue panels
referencing the translucent color of that series. There are text tiles that
spell out SPACE. I’m sure Benny is around somewhere.
