About this creation
This model was constructed during the summer of 2001, and was my second post-dark ages creation. It took me several months of experimenting to figure out how to build it. This model features two internal bomb bays, retractable landing gear, and an opening canopy.

The model still exists in its original form as my oldest moc. Its smooth, angled, studless design was revolutionary when it was first unveiled in 2001, although newer element types and better proportioned renditions have rendered this design as obsolete.

Lego should have a product line for aviation aircraft, if they create one, this should be the first set. Can you put on Lego Cuusoo please.

Spetacular! Time very well spent, looks very lifelike. I have a new project that involves a lot of angles like this, I might have to come back and take a closer look as to how you rendered yours ;-) I love this well done!

That is so realistic. I'm trying to build s nighthawk but it isn't even half as good as that. Great job.

"-newer element types and better proportioned renditions have rendered this design as obsolete." I beg to differ! The multi-faceted F117 is probably the hardest aeroplane to recreate and you have done an extaordinary job. Other than the canopy area, I cannot see where newer pieces would really improve upon your masterpiece.

Quoting Professor Pi Excellent Job. One question-- does the landing gear retract or do you take it off. From the underside view it looks to me that you take it off and those flaps just retract, but I am not sure. Either way, a superb build.
The gear fully retracts

Now that Ralph Savelsburg has one too, I came back a little more critically, but I still think this is an absolutely wonderfull masterpiece. While Ralph's has better shape and detail, I love the studless look to this one. Also, in response to Alex.'s comment about mini-fig compatability, I did a rough stud count, and this is between six and eight studs too long, the real one's sixty feet, so this could pass for the controversial 1 stud = 1 foot ratio, which I use. Excellent job! -- -- Michael

Wooooooow, crazy! See, when I llook at the pictures I can see how you built most parts. But how on earth did you manage to put them together??? I usually don´t ask for instructions, but here I would love to check them out! And I really like that it´s made to be played with - that a minifig fits in your cockpit! Anyways, great creation!!!

Gasp! Wheeze! Choke! Fall dead to the ground. How in tarnation did you manage to stick that together? I tried, But what I ended up with looked as if it was hit with a Paveway bomb. If YOURS was any better, it would be flying over Bagdad with a payload of JDAMs. If MINE was any better, it would look like...well... it had been hit with a Paveway bomb. Could you build an F-35 Lightning II? ;-) -- -- Jack

A great model which showcases the very best of lego building techniques. But, i don't think you got the shape right. Please provide a side view! I will change the rating if you prove im wrong. PS, it is NOT minifig scale Michael Ford, The man in the cockpit is tiny compared to the model... A great model nonetheless, Alex.

Its spelled F-117 Night Hawk, note the space. jk with ya. This is the absolute numero uno Jet ever creted out of Lego and it is unchallenged. I know that it has had the crap reviewed out of it, but another 5/5 Never hurts.(BTW: I think it's "Night Hawk" with a space to differentuate from a Curtiss P-84 Nighthawk, but I dunno, I just feel like being technical)
