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...


Lego Standard Pod Eagle



Lego Rescue Pod Eagle



Lego VIP Pod Eagle



Lego Lab Pod Eagle


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.

Ron

I would have loved it having such a Lego Eagle when was in this age.

Fantastic job on the Lego Eagles. So good it made me join up. Space 1999 was required watching in my house growing up. I have been toying around with LDD and have a fairly close match to yours (minus a few parts that are not available) but would REALLY like to see your directions when completed. There are some things you can do in real life (or as close to real life as sci-fi spacecraft made from toys as you can come) that you cannot do in LDD. I was also able to make some smaller ones with less detail.

Thanks again for the brilliant work, and for sharing.

Default Impressive Legos

Having spent hundreds of hours hunched-over on the floor, playing legos with my son, I particularly appreciate your effort. Great work!

Transporter: Those LEGO Eagles look very nice. For anyone wishing to design these, or similar items, that do not have many LEGO bricks at hand then the free LEGO digital designer could be useful: http://ldd.lego.com/ The saved designer file/s retain what bricks were used and this could be an easy way to share details of what's required to construct the Eagle.

The plans are still in the works. And they could not be done with Lego Digital Designer for various reasons. After a lot of work to find out every detail and doing all the graphic work for the plans I will be offering the plans on this forum for 20 US$ as a pdf File. They are not just Lego Digital Designers plans but plans that look like coming from Lego directly.

The plans include how to construct:
- Eagle,
- Standard Pod,
- Rescue Pod,
- VIP Pod,
- Pallette Pod,
- Winch Pod,
- Lab Pod

A list of all the Lego parts required to construct the Medium Sized Lego Eagles, the Graphics for the stickers and Box Art will also be included in the plans.

For those who are interested, please let me know.

Thank you and all the best. Ron

Wow! Great job!, I remember trying to build Lego Eagles at school back in the late Seventies but could never get the right parts so I made some pretty crude Models from Stickle Bricks, Love the Eagle with Blue Stripes,

Very Well done!
