Pint-sized jumbo jets
About this creation
I've always admired MOCers who could pack a lot of detail into microscale projects. It's especially difficult to accurately model a real-world subject in a tiny Lego package. I don't usually work in microscale, so I thought it'd be a fun challenge to build some mini airliners because you see a lot of military aircraft MOCs but few commercial jets.

I tried to put as much detail and playability in each model as I could, while keeping them fairly realistic in a small scale. One feature that was absolutely necessary for me to include was retractable landing gear. I had far too many toy airplanes as a kid that were stuck with the landing gear fixed down! How often do you see a commercial jet cruising at 35,000 feet with the landing gear lowered? So naturally, in order to swoosh my toy planes around, I snapped the landing gear off - which was all well and good until they needed to land! Too many passengers complaining of rough belly landings forced me to find a solution, which I've included in each of these models.

Each model is under 200 pieces (not including ground equipment and accessories), and they are not necessarily to scale with one another.

These all like quite good, especially considering the work you've done to match the color schemes. Great job!
