i've wondered that before too. i recognize every piece except for that big red circle, and the blue things that make up what i believe to be the windows.

I'm pretty sure the windows are made up of Image Image and Image but I've never seen that red circle before either.

wow, that they are! i totally never would have seen that before, either. as a side note, mike, you did an excellent job showing how those would look from a minifig's perspective (since we're too huge to fit in a lego cockpit and wouldn't be able to catch those angles and interior detail at ALL).

That's how I paid the bills for five years. You'd be surprised how fast you learn stuff like that when you need to do it in order to eat.

I'm almost sure I based that red circle on an actual element, but I'm not sure that it's one I actually have myself. I saw it in somebody else's model and thought "I could totally use that in a cockpit."

I haven't seen that piece before either, I don't think it exists...

EDIT: unless it's based on this piece:

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

to be honest, the circle DID always look like a lego piece I'd seen, but can't for the life of me place where it's from. maybe one of the odd technic bionicle predecessors had something along these lines.

Aha, I bet it was this piece from the basketball and Quidditch sets:

Since I didn't have one myself at the time I got the interior detailing wrong. But I saw somebody use them as propeller casings on a steampunk ship and that's what gave me the idea.

I never noticed this but he's actually flying on his side in the air. The landscape out of his window is at a different angle. Genious.

if you'll notice, he's also got a burning engine and he's got a spinning smoke trail. the story is obvious.

In art school they call that "second read." The stuff you notice right off the bat, like the fact that he's flying a plane and the steering wheel's come off, is "first read." I like to hide funny stuff in the parts of the picture you only notice after staring at the first-read stuff for a while.

so in this case, random sushi is third or fourth read, correct?

Lol.

But I think he's got sushi because it alludes to the japanese and their planes back in WWII were called Zeroes and he's about to go to zero alltitude. :wink:

Psh, he obviously has sushi because the ninja secretly swapped out his repair tools with fish and shrimp, thus screwing the pilot. Unless the pilot performs a heroic feat and fixes the steering wheel with chopsticks and sushi.

which he obviously will, that rice is surprisingly sticky.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.
