Check out a unique variation to the Lego Company's 7893 commercial airplane.
About this creation
NAIA, The National Aerospace Intelligence Agency of the Lego nation of Islandasia, has an interesting topic for you today: Lego kit modifications!
As part of series of uploading archive creations, NAIA has decided to share one of its old projects: modifying Lego Company-designed aircraft . . . in this case, Kit #7893. The original 7893 features four minute powerplants, an 11-passenger accomodation, and a small kitchen. NAIA felt that this thin accomodation level, aerodynamically-deficient powerplant system, and lack of a lavatory called for modification! Thus, after a couple of Lego months (human weeks) of research, design, experimentation, and adaption, NAIA released its version of the 7893.
The new 7893 aircraft features an enhanced twin-engine design that improves performance and eliminates the high levels of drag that accompanied the original 7893 version. Furthermore, improved lightning rods, communication antennae, and lighting systems have been integrated . . . not to mention a redone rear landing gear configuration designed to be more shock-absorbent and provide efficient maneuvering on the ground.
Exterior modification is just a minor factor of the NAIA 7893's uniqueness, however. The magical transformation isn't truly evident until one steps inside to witness a comfortable seating arrangement easily accomodating 20 passengers.
Those who own the 7893 (or 7894) aircraft might recall there is a large hollow space inside the rear fuselage section. NAIA has cleverly devised a lavatory, kitchen, and steward/stewardess seating section in this otherwise empty area. Below you can see the innovative new seat design with tray tables and personal tv screens.
The NAIA 7893 not only retains the sleek fuselage of the original, but improves its aesthetics with its new powerplants. What could be better than improved performance parallel with improved looks?
Though NAIA is in no cooperative agreement with the Lego Company monopoly to promote this variation to be produced straight out of the original factory, it has developed its own assemply lines to quickly and efficiently convert the Lego Company model into this new and improved variation to be, in turn, purchased from customers. NAIA looks forward to seeing this impressive model flying high in the skies for a long time to come.

BTW: in which direction does the bathroom go in the rear section of the plane?
The lavatory is in the very back of the plane with the stewardess' seat toward the front. If you look closely, you'll see that the door to the lavatory faces the stewardess' seat. Thanks for asking and I'm glad you liked this!
