BBG Round 4: Abby F. vs Ieuan R. - The Battle of Britain
My entry into Round 4 of the Brickbattle Games. Good luck to all!
About this creation
Category: "Arial Dogfight": Build two or more planes form WWI-Present (2013) in combat. You can build any model (of plane) that you want, but it has to be an actual plane from the era (time period) that you choose, and they have to be shown in combat.

NOTE: Your planes MUST be minifigure scale. However, you are allowed to use microscale for forced-prospective purposes ONLY!


So, let me just say, it helped having a Air Force pilot, who knows his stuff, for a Dad and a computer editing master for a brother. My planes are from World War 2, which is kind of obvious, seeing as though I tried to the Battle of Britain.

The required links... Homepage and my opponent's homepage.



A proof picture that I do actually have two separate planes.


The English Spitfire.




Just some detailed photos of the Spitfire.


Proof that the planes are minifigure size.



The German BF-109.




Again, detailed photos of the plane.


Proof that the BF-109 is Minifigure scale.


The two pilots. The British pilot, named by my brother, Jack Harkness and the German pilot, also named by my brother, Hanz Gruber.



Yes, I used green screen but only for the main picture. My homepage, if you want to go check it out!

Great work on the dogfight, the main picture is really good. I like the 109 the best, it looks nice and the flame effects are great. The Spitfire could use a little work though, the brick built RAF symbols on it are awesome, but the shape has too many sharp angles. If you rounded out the wingtips it would really improve the look. Don't change the symbols on the wings though, I don't think I have seen their equal without stickers. Nice job.

That's a great-looking dogfight! Nice job on the Spitfire and BF-109! I like the fact that you added a scene to your photo and that minifigs can fit inside of the cockpit! Outstanding job! 5/5! :-)

Quoting Achintya Prasad Not bad, not bad. The photoshopping is pretty good (though some contrails and such from the airplanes would be even better). However, I can't say I care much for the wings. The ends are simply too....blocky, for them to look much like the actual planes; a Spitfire is literally made around those iconic oval wings. In the scale you were working in, I would have recommended using plates for wings instead of bricks, simply due to the thickness. But still, not a bad intro into Aircraft :-)
I understand everything you have said! But yes, these were my first planes ever made.

Quoting A M Abby, once again you've impressed me. I know if I had gotten this category I wouldn't have done nearly as well as you have. That being said, this was a difficult decision. Leuan's planes looked more sleek than yours, but you did choose blockier planes to try and create in the first place. At first glance this doesn't seem to be quite as risky a move as leuan's approach. But you did it so well, it hardly mattered. Your detailing and that wonderful first picture won me over. You've got my vote! :) Congratulations!
Oh my goodness! Thanks you!

Quoting Luke the Swift I'm sorry but my vote goes to your opponent!
Its okay... his planes are very good. I do believe it is tied now... so nerve racking!

Quoting Lee Muzzy This one was extremely difficult to decide. Ieuan's plans look very sleek and smooth and dangerous. But I really like your classic WWII approach. Spit fires happen to be my favorite plan and you did a great job representing them here. you have my vote!
Thank you for the vote! I do agree, his planes are remarkably built.

Quoting Lego Builders Excellent build. Planes are very difficult to capture correctly. This is a very fine attempt. The shade of the Spitfire is not perfect, but the color scheme on the Messerschmitt is spot on. Still a 5 stared build. -LB Senior
Thanks! And yeah, it took me a while to actually come up with the design.

Jack Harkness is from a show called Doctor Who. We both really like that character.
