Attack Jet.

   I recently bought the Lego Quinjet (just the jet not the minifigs) and this is the result of about an hour of work.
   It originally started as a two seat ground attack fighter with retractable landing gear. But the rest of the design hasn't changed much. I knew I wanted to give it a hulking, low profile with swooping wings.

   Front view.

   Large, chunky wings.

   Back view.

   Bottom view. The wings were difficult but easily my favorite part of the build as I tried to get all the sections to work together.

I'm back...for now.

   It seems every time I make another sailing ship it gets bigger and better and this is no exception.

   There she is in all her glory. My first ship with double masts and a form of sails. I'm sorry I didn't get a better picture of them.

   Side view.

   Lot's of deck space to move around.

   Moving rudder.

   My first version of the captains cabin was grossly oversize. This is a significant improvement. Still I wish I had made the deck longer. 

   There is a hatch in the deck as well.

   And a section of the top deck is removable. I still haven't figured out what to put in here. Maybe beds since all my other ships had nothing for the crew to sleep on.

   Back view of the captains cabin. Based on what has been added on to each previous sailing ship I predict my next one will have cannons.
