• Is it just friction that keeps the fins at the proper angle? - -Mainman-
  • nope, it's a variation of this
  • clever... - -Mainman-
  • Are these supposed to some type of Russian AMRAAM? They look about the right size - Cicada Gin
  • Nicely done here - Shadow Viking
  • And here - Shadow Viking
  • How are these wings attached? - Wafflebottom
  • looks like they're wedged in between the studs on the round bricks - kv_draugaer
  • I don't know which version of the R-40 missile this is, but there were two versions, one radar-guided, and one IR-guided.

    it's a long-range missile, while the AMRAAM is a middle-range missile, so they probably aren't eactly analogous... - origamiPete

Decided to take some clean pictures of this guy. I hate photography on large MOCs.

shrukenmonkey, QuestionableEthics, and 110 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    This is such a fantastic model, and the same goes for your X-Wing. Beautiful work.

    Then don't build such large MOCs. Just kidding, don't take what I said to heart.

    Congratulations to another fantastic model, Mike!
    I was waiting for you to post some more pictures of this beast... The wings, intakes and stabilizers are a work of art!
    Since you put a minifig in the cockpit: is it actually round about minifig scale?
    And what´s next on your to-do-list? Are you going to attempt your turbo prop freighter à la C-130 some time soon? I´d be very curious how you´d realize that one...
    Best regards,

    I don't know what minifig scale is! It's somewhere between 1:37 and 1:38 (at least I think). I don't know if or when I'll ever do a C-130. As cool as I think it would be, I don't know if I have the parts or the patience to see it through the whole way. Right now I am trying to finish other long-delayed projects.

    Gotcha, I guess you´re right about the "exact" dimensions of what may be minifig scale. Some say it´s roughly 1:45, but then again, who knows. I just usually go by the looks, eye-measuring.
    And you´re right, building large aircraft is super time-consuming.
    You know I am not a fast builder to begin with, and so it took me freakin´ 9 or 10 months to build my large turbo prop freighter... That includes a week of vacation during which I basically did nothing else but finishing the build:)...
    Anyways, talk to you soon.

    I decided to show this to my dad, a retired p-3 navigator and warplane fan, turns out he used to get chased around by these guys when he would have missions near the Russian coast. Nice build too!
