The only problem with the LEGO Eagles; ya-all would want them in 11", 22", 44", and someone would try a 7" and 88".
Beautiful job by the way. I think the blue stripped eagle would make a better looking VIP than the orange used on the show.

Yes, I have seen these pics. But one of our members is constructing the ultimate huge Lego Eagle. Because he is a friend of mine here in Switzerland I've seen his progresses live...

I think he needs some more time to finish it. It's always difficult with Lego. After a certain time you find out how to do it better.

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

Transporter: I see. Good luck with your venture. Have you considered doing a trial run with the required bricks included?

Becco_UK: I started by using LDD and was just not happy with the graphical output, some parts were not available and some "tricks" were just not possible. I then switched to Bricksmith. The final result of the plans was only possible by using professional layout software (inDesign, Photoshop etc.)
I do not intend to go back to LDD and try the Eagles again because this would not make sense.
I know that you are a good 3D-Artist, so you also know that some 3D progs have their limits. For the Eagle project LDD was just not good enough but for many other projects it is. And it is way cool that you can finally order directly everything from Lego.

Transporter: I think I didn't make my last post post very clear - what I meant was to include all the real plastic LEGO bricks with your plans and sell those on a trial/limited run - just a thought.

Ok, I got it now . A limited run of these Eagles including all parts and printed stickers and instructions and a box would finally just have a very big price tag and make problems with Lego because of the copyrights. So I have to run out a limited run...
