One of my last aircraft models built before I began focusing more on building guns, my LEGO® Raptor was first finished on 7/24/09. The aircraft features an opening cockpit, retracting landing gear, moveable air brake, and weapon bay doors that open to deploy Sidewinder air-to-air missiles. I used a mixture of old and new light grays to better represent the F-22's multi-toned "skin".
[Overall Dimensions: 15" long, about 11.5" wide, about 4.75" high (on landing gear).]

Almost attempted a b-2 once, but that was a year ago. All the angles scared me haha, but I might attempt one in the near future..... Anyways, nice raptor here. I've made one of these too haha. But that b-2.... I dunno..,,
f-15 will be 2 easy. f-35 even easier...b-2 impossible and b-17 maybe. thanks, that 'll keep me busy for spring break! could you also join my new group, fighter jets??? i would love to see this creation there!!!
Quoting f-22 raptor
awesome! i love this plane (hence my name), and also need ideas to make, any???
Thanks for the compliment! As far as aircraft go, I think that somebody should try to build a minifig-scaled B-2 Spirit with a working bomb bay. Other possiblities include the F-15, F-35B, and the classic B-17 Flying Fortress.
