Crimson Arrows P-2 "Sojourner" (Large Trijet Airliner) . KAAI P-2 “Sojourner”, a large trijet airliner, heavily inspired by the DC-10 / MD-11 designs. It is KAAI's second airliner built in series. Key words: Lego LEGO aircraft passenger passengers jetliner regional jet landing gear T-tail narrow-body plane planes civil aviation KAAI engineering aerodynamics aerodynamic swoosh swooshable streamlined airline airliner retractable airport cabin interior functional functionality playability playable minifig scale minifigs minifig-scale Kasteleiner Aircraft & Aerospace Industries commercial aviation trijet mid-body wide-body large scene dio diorama pink Team Telekom ramp apron airport airfield equipment . I forced myself to finish the aircraft before I will start my new job on Monday. From then on, I will have a lot less time for building. This thing represents something between a wide-body and “mid-body” aircraft design: its fuselage diameter is supposed to be smaller than the DC-10 / MD-11, but a tad wider than B-707 and Co. Roughly the diameter of the A-320 series, but “stretched” in both length and wing span in relation to those Airbus planes… I like long, “sleak” planes:)… This model was the most difficult one I have built so far, particularly due to the incredibly complex wing structure: not only did I have to hang the engines underneath the wing in an awkward, untypical way; moreover, I included working Kruger flaps (expandable leading edge flaps), increasing lift during the take-off and approach phase: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krueger_flaps I don’t think this has been realized yet on any Lego aircraft model – but feel free to prove me wrong! To Jonathan Ma: As promised, I will include some pictures of how I made the doors of the aircraft at the end of this page. I hope you´ll enjoy:) It has a pretty nice tail: A Sojourner rolling into a parking position: An airport baggage truck with two (small) belly containers, a baggage and bulk trailer and some mobile boarding stairs: Adding the stairs to the halted aircraft for an upcoming boarding procedure: Some celebrities will be among the passengers: here, we have Pink posing with the "Team Deutsche Telekom" Tour de France stars! In the meantime, the general boarding starts, but is slowed down immensly by an additional customs control: Passengers... Weird ravers or a neo-modern cult? Who knows! :) Look who else is on this flight... :) I especially enjoy this kind of perspective here: The above mentioned Krueger Flaps, increasing lift during the critical phases of take-offs and approaches: A heavy Sojourner touching down... The underside of the fuselage - sorry for the flash light - it was too dark to take better pics... The next one shows the nose shape quite well. I tried to make a nice, sleak-looking, rounded nose, representing some of the main features of most real aircraft of medium or large size: Once more the frontal view of the Sojourner: An easy-to-open cabin for playbility purposes: The front section of the cabin (1st class) and the door to the cockpit: Rear section of the cabin: There are different cargo options for the Sojourner: It has space for two small belly containers... ... or a large cargo bay on the main deck for all sorts of bulky cargo or two 4*8, 4-brick-high containers like shown on the following pic: A optical, sizw-wise comparison between the P-1 and the P-2: Last but not least, here's how I build aircraft doors. It's very simple, similar to how it is done on the original Lego fuselages: Ratings, comments and constructive criticism are appreciated! I´ll gladly answer to any questions, but won´t be able to check my account until Sunday evening... Thanks, Best regards, Steffen
