Valkyrie XB 70
Folding wings and ailerons, retractable undercarriage and two light up bricks for the afterburners. Oh yeah and a retro looking nuclear bomb.
About this creation
The North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie was a prototype strategic bomber developed in the 1950s and early 60s (during the Cold war) This large six-engined aircraft was able to fly at Mach 3+ at an altitude of 70,000 feet (21,000 m).

Only two prototypes were built and used in supersonic test flights from 1964 to 1969. One prototype crashed following a midair collision in 1966, the other is on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Ohio.

The British/French Concorde, the Russian Tu - 144 (Concordski) and the SR 71 blackbird were all developed off the back of this wonderful aircraft.











































Hope you like it :)

I don't think I've seen this before.. Maybe I did but just didn't comment! Anyway, the amount of functions and details you've packed in is phenomenal! Brilliant work.

Quoting Marty Fields Always admired this plane. Good job. Like the light brick engines!
Thanks Marty, I was hoping you would see this as it is very similar to a Firefox. My next mini/micro plane will propably be the Firefox so I will let you know when I build it.

I looked at the photo and thought "That's a Valkyrie" and it was! Then I saw all of the features and how small it was. The proportions look just right and amazing to fit it all into a small space. I suppose I mainly like this because Lego and aeroplanes were amongst my favorite things as a kid in the 80's.

Hi Joe! Considering the size of this plane, it contains a lot of functions! I think the best are the afterburners! Hope you are well!

Quoting andros tempest an elegant and deceptively detailed design. but did I spy some grey where grey was not intended...?
Hahaha thanks Andros, and yes well spotted. Luckily Hump-Free edited the main photo for me.

Nice plane! And thanks for adding me as a favorite builder. From a builder like you does mean a lot :)

Yeah, I changed the colours slightly, to make the colour temperature less warm and more neutral, to make it less yellow hued, while I was editing the lone Gray Brick, does it look natural? As if you used an actual white brick?

Quoting Andrew AKA Hump-Free I feel like that you should compare the following images for me, http://images.mocpages.com/user_images/70583/1334000018m_SPLASH.jpg http://images.mocpages.com/user_images/84838/1334290402m_DISPLAY.jpg
Awesome thanks Hump-Free :D. I've changed the main pic. Did you also enhance the colours?

Sorry, bad habit of mine, I closed the comment page when it when to the "preview page" :) Anyways, great mixture of studs and tiles - really unique shape.

Looks deceptively simple (yet, it's not), make a stand for it to make it more desirable.

First of all, I had no Idea this plane existed, second of all, you've packed a lot of features into a little package, the landing gear, the flaps, the folding wings, very nice, I saw the grey part, is that a marking, or did you run out of white? I know that feeling, that's why I like LDD so much! Really nice build M.

Quoting Andrew AKA Hump-Free To be honest with you, while the New Main Picture shows off more functionality, it makes the MOC less recognizable, the older Main Picture made this instantly recognizable as a Aeroplane. Also, the Old Image added a shock value to the MOC, it lead your audience to think this was a simpler build, but the presentation made you think otherwise as you discovered the various features.
Thanks Hump-Free, On second thoughts I totally agree with your comments. As you can see I have reposted the original picture.

The afterburners makes it awesome. I like the functionality you included too, nice build

Well, at first glance, this looked rather plain, but you managed to hide a decent array of features. Nice work on this.

Excellent work on your Valkyrie. You did a great job with the details. The afterburner effect is cool with it. I've always loved the B-70 and did one a while ago in LEGO as well. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/280297 Anyway if you want a nice fictional story about the Valkyrie, check out: http://www.authonomy.com/books/5949/valkyrie-squadron/

Quoting Chris Melby First of all, I had no Idea this plane existed... ...Really nice build M.
. Thanks Doctor Z ;). I tried my best to fit as much as I could into this thing. Yeah I ran out of white :(. I only discovered this plane recently when I was researching the Russian Concordski. It is such a majestic plane my moc does not really do it justice. If only I had more white I would build a much bigger version.

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera This looks Awesome mate! Just like the real thing! Some really cool details! Would look great with my Tiny Jet collection. Please build more :-)
Thanks mate :). Yeah it would, but I think it would need a bit of forced perspective. I did try to build it in the same scale as your jets but it would have to be considerably bigger than this. I just don’t have the white bricks so I decided on this micro micro scale. :)

Quoting Owen S. Sweet! At first it looked simple, then I saw all the cool details like the wings and the missile! Awesome job. ;)
Thanks Owen, yeah it is a very simple shape so I thought I would cram in as many functions as possible.
