Red Arrows make it to the big time in LEGO
Written by Matthew Dixon on 30th January 2017
The campaign to get an official Red Arrows LEGO set has met it’s halfway mark.
The set will create the iconic BAE Systems Hawk T1 aircraft, in, of course, classic RAF red. The project has been put forward by Squadron Leader Mike Ling, Red 10, and his developer, Flight Lieutenant Marcus Ramsden, an RAF Engineering Officer.
For the project to take off and become a real LEGO set, the project has to get 10,000 supporters on their LEGO Ideas page.
The design got 600 votes in the first day that it went up and the total currently stands at 4,528 supporters but still has a lot of time to get more votes.
Fans have been leaving supportive comments from the get go.
yeager25: “A must in any airshow! I love the details in the cockpit.”
boykoi68: “God I would buy 9 of these.”
mc2k13: “Next year is the RAF’s 100th anniversary. This could be a great set on the shelves!”
