Sabre Star
The SF-86 is a prototype long range heavy starfighter for the Lego Spaceforce.
About this creation
Thank you for checking out my Lego creation! The Sabre Star is the latest prototype for a long range heavy starfighter in the Lego Spaceforce fleet. I began designing it sometime in spring 2012. The first thing I designed were the outboard engines. The shape was inspired by the fuselage of the USS Enterprise from Star Trek. I created the hexagonal main fuselage using Technic tri-axles inside at opposite alternating angles. After that it was just a matter of applying the body paneling and tapering down the front and back ends. The front scoop naturally fell into place and harkened back to the North American F-86 Sabre jet. Thus, it seemed appropriate to give homage.



The front scoop feeds into the mini wave motion engine at the heart of the ship, which gives the Sabre Star its superior range over other starfighters in its class.



Use of the cockpit pieces to enclose the main cannons turned out to be my favorite design idea on this model.



After toying around with a 3rd dorsal engine I eventually settled on the twin tail configuration. I had to Brasso off the Jack Stone decals. It is too bad this piece wasn't produced more in other colors.



A side view showing the stout stature of the SF-86.



This semi-rear view offers a better look at the SF-86's mini wave motion engine.






With canopy open. The canopy opens sideways using stacked finger hinges at opposing angles.

I like the overall shape and uniformity of the colors. When you build these spaceships you put work into them and it shows.

Jorge, thank you for your message. If I had instructions for this creation I'd be happy to share. However, the design is rather complex, particularly underneath the surface. Also, it uses some costly and harder to find parts that would ultimately drive its price up above a what typical Lego set its size would cost. --Dan

Hello. i am amazed by the detail of this ship. i was wondering if there was any possibility of contacting the creator of this ship. my little brothers birthday is a month from now and i wanted to surprise him with a LEGO ship. something that isn't so generic like star wars ect. he is a really big Lego spaceship fan and when he saw your creations he freaked out on how amazing they were. if you are interested please respond. thanks :D

Breathtaking! Shape-scale-details-balance-coloursheme fits perfect together! Most i like the powerfull appearance, very respectful. Second, i like the theme, pretty well adition to the official sets ( yet yours is superior-level). I am curious, what a genius like you will build next!

This is amazing! I wonder where you guys get all the parts from to keep a uniform livery. Either way, I love everything about this, especially the canopy.

This is neat! Love the bulky scale to it, not so sleek, looks great.

Wow!! That is an unusual and audacious design!! The result is awesome, specially the thruster and the NPU for the main cannons. Great job!!

It's been a long time since I said "Oh my gosh" while view a MOC. This is absolutely magnificent!! I saw it on The Lego Car Blog, and it's certainly there for good reason. The part use is astonishingly clever and it all works so well! This is a properly spiffy MOC.

Looks like a stout ship that would stand up to swooshing.

I love how it "fits" together. Almost looks like a toy not made of LEGO.

That's the first thing I see with a blunt nose that still looks incredibly fast. Those cockpit pieces indeed steal the show, and the sideways nacells add more of a Flash Gordon feel for me. Inspiring stuff, Daniel. Keep 'em coming!

A brilliant loooking ship and I totally agree that it has the look of an F-86. I like the hexagonal fuselage and how you've made it curve at the front and back, without any gaps: very skillfull! I think that the blue engine looks good and the use of the cockpit surrounds to house the guns looks excellent and adds to the smooth look. Great Work!

Dude. I have no idea how you did that, but I'm totally into it! Love the S-foil piece in the front, and those angles are crazy good. Good stuff!

Cool canopy devise! I could visualize this with more red or blue looking very new wave CS too! :)

Totally awesome fighter. Did You use click hinges for the general shape. I like the front most with the grille panel. It seems a bit like the front from an older jetfighter, maybe 2.nd worldwar

Shaping, the red stripe, the use of the canopy piece as a weapon housing - your formidable spaceship design skills are well on display here, great stuff!

Neat little canopy mechanism. The running red stripe across all the angles is pretty eye catching.
