100% Gravioli - Boeing P26 Peashooter

 

Nothing stopped me

Single engine, all metal fuselage monoplane, one of the most advanced fighters... at it's introduction. Advancements in aviation technology had made the "Peashooter", as it was affectionately known, obsolete by the time the US entered WWII in 1941.

The P26 was armed with 2 Browning machine guns, and had optional bomb load on suspended racks

The colors were based upon the one seen in War Thunder, which likely never existed, but indeed, Peashooters came in blue with yellow wings, except with more colors and accents and so on...

It's fuselage is (obviously) made almost entirely out of gravioli detectors. This came after attempts to make the fuselage out of solar panels and such, well, failed. So I said "to hell with part count!" and went along. What you're seeing is actually V2 of the blue peashooter.

This is V1. It's larger than V2, the fuselage is general more rounder, and part count-a skyrocketed to 1150 parts. But it is important, as it laid the groundwork for many replicas of mine to come, which not only getting the shape right, but also the colors. The extra effort and part count is worth it in my opinion.

I looked at the picture before reading the text. My first thought was "what mod got those colors?" Then I read the text and zoomed in...

10/10 for persistence assembling that. Very well done. You are a lego master.
