New Brickmania Digital Instructions (1/19)
Brickmania has released new digital instructions for sale on their website. The digital instructions they have added this week are the F-86F Sabre (designed by Cody Osell) and the MiG-15 (designed by Yitzy Kasowitz). Both of these models are really impressive, but my favorite has to be the MiG-15. They have done an amazing job of recreating the overall shape and look of the MiG-15 in LEGO form. In particular I really like what they have done with the nose of the plane, the cockpit, and the guns mounted under the nose which all together really define the look of this plane. I also really appreciate the bits of history that Brickmania mentions about their models and was interested to learn that the MiG-15 employed a swept-back wing design and horizontal stabilizers which gave it a top speed approaching the speed of sound and a climb-rate completely unseen before in aerial combat. If you don’t already have these awesome models in your collection it is definitely worth checking them out! In addition to the instructions there are also sticker packs and special parts (BrickArms and otherwise) available for purchase so you can complete these models in all of their glory.
