LEGO Ideas of the Week: Pursuit of Flight

This small kinetic sculpture is designed to celebrate the wonder of flight. The two planes tilt as they move from side to side, giving the illusion of flying gracefully through the air. The mechanism is controlled using a crank on the side of the model, which you can see in the video below.

This model can easily be customized to showcase different planes, birds, or even spaceships flying through different environments. Here I have depicted two famous planes from the early 20th century, the Sopwith Camel and Fokker Dr.1, flying over a country landscape.

Though these planes are smaller than minifig scale, I have included minifig heads for the pilots, as I think it adds character to the model. A full pilot minifig could also be included for each plane to be displayed alongside the model.

I think it would be awesome if the set included instructions and pieces for other planes as well, and I will be exploring other aircraft designs in future updates, so be sure to stay tuned.

In addition to being an interesting and engaging display model, this project also illustrates how even simple mechanisms can be used to achieve some interesting motion. I hope you agree and add your support. Thanks for reading!
