Lego floatplane, side view

Lego Floatplane

This is an alternative build for Lego set 42084, Hook Loader. When I thought what to make of it, the two curved panels brought no other inspiration than an airplane. It felt a bit boring at first, but when I started tinkering with it, I realized that it might be a nice challenge to avoid building with straight angles. One fun fact about the design: the fuselage only stays in shape because of the axle-pin that connects the vertical tail to the pin-connector next to it. Besides all the weird angles, the tail planes have moving ailerons and the plane has a great whoosh factor. It doesn’t really float though.
