I decided to try a new and interesting technic with this plane. I had never built a biplane before, and I was running out of hinge pieces, wich I generally use for aircraft. So I used a technic I had seen many other LEGO builders use. I used pieces with studs on the side to hold up the sides of the aircraft. I found the landing gear particularily hard and tedious, but I finally settled on a style I like. The top wing also proved to be difficult to connect, and took many attemps before I found a working method. I am really happy about the fuselage and the interior. they turned out pretty good.
I think this would make a cool LEGO project because I have always wanted a LEGO plane based on a real plane, and having a stunt plane takes it one step further. I'm sure many other people think along the lines that I do. LEGO sells cars based on the real thing, and I, and many others, think planes would be a nice touch.
