Default Medium Sized Lego Eagles

This was to expect: after working on many model projects simultaneously, some of them got finished more or less together.

This is how I see medium sized Lego Eagles. It took a lot of time to figure it all out and of course some compromises had to be made due to the size.

The original idea was to make a Lego Eagle for my six year old son. But, you certainly know how easily the Eagle bug grabs you...

After finishing my first Lego Eagle, I suddenly wanted to have a way to display it. Here comes a small Lego Eagle Launch Pad.

Like almost every boy, my son likes all police things. So I created, inspired by the blue Hawk by tak5haka, a Police Eagle - maybe some flashing lights will be added later.

Finding all the required bricks took a lot of time, and I usually found them at bricklink.com. Actually I would not want to calculate how much the parts costet for building my 3 Lego Eagles and the launch pad, but it certainly is as expensive as 3 PE Eagles. The art for the decals also took some time. They were eventually printed on a self adhesive transparent foil from "Data Becker".

The Eagle for my son also has all the pods and I am drawing plans and I am making a realistic looking Lego box. He will just get the box with all the parts and so he can build his Lego Eagle "without" my help.

Hope you all like it.
