My dark gray and yellow Stunt Airplane was inspired by the 3-in-1 Race Plane and WWII bombers. I did a kit bashing of 3 different lego sets and some of my loose parts to come up with my own stylized version of a Stunt Plane.
The Stunt Plane Build
Before I could complete the Stunt Plane build I needed to get additional parts that the 3-in-1 Race Plane did not have. So I purchased the Captain Marvel Plane (mostly for the wing parts) and the War Machine Buster (for all the cool gray parts). For the yellow I already had the 3-in-1 Under Water Robot so I used it for the yellow parts of the plane – most notably I used the vehicle spoilers on the back wing flaps.
The challenges of building a LEGO plane
I thought it was going to be easy using the Race Plane as a guide for my build. It turned out I needed to re-build this LEGO® Moc multiple times to get the look I wanted. I rebuilt the wings 3 times to get the right shape and the fuselage twice. The most challenging part was creating the slope and taper up to the tail of the plane.

I looked at multiple LEGO® moc samples to figure out all the different proportions – but ultimately I had to invent my own way of building it with the parts I had (A common LEGO® challenge – see my Mocs with instructions here).
The Final Stunt Plane Moc
Overall I am really happy with how the build turned out considering the limited amount of parts I had. It did prompt me to start a Brick Link wish list for more parts – so stay tuned for a sleeker version of this airplane to come. I also started collecting my references of LEGO® airplane builds that you can check out on my Pinterest page.
