The “Marauder Jet”


This is probably my favourite recent lego creation. It’s a high speed jet designed to operate as a mobile command platform, support plane and VIP transporter. Designed for a maximum speed of mach 10 and a cruising speed of mach 8, it is the fastest plane in the skies.

The interior runs from the front of the plane to the back, with only a small sealed section behind the cockpit. The cockpit opens and two parts of the roof come off. There are also two side hatches.

The landing gear is retractable. There are two sets under the engines and one set near the nose. I had to rebuild the engines and dig in the nose to fit in the gear. It was not easy.
