The set 6912, Super Soarer, features a yellow jet plane. My first thoughts were towards the Harrier, but it has exhausts on the tail, which the Harrier doesn't have.

On what plane, if any, is it based?

  • I think "inspired by" is a more accurate question - there are a number of aspects of this model that are "similar to" but not identical to real planes. Feb 26, 2014 at 11:42

I would go for another British aircraft: Sepecat Jaguar

It's twin-engine also.

The intakes, wing shapes and overall proportions look like a Harrier Jump Jet, but the model doesn't have the landing gear or under-wing armaments.

  • The Harrier was the first one that came to my mind as well, based on this picture. But, as can be seen in !this picture, the _Super Soarer has exhausts on its tail, which the Harrier decidedly doesn't. I've added a picture showing this to the question.

    The lack of armaments probably comes from the fact that LEGO tend not to go in for "war" directly as well as the fact that someone else owns the license for "HM Armed Forces" based construction toys Feb 26, 2014 at 11:46
