This is my first post!!!
Anyway, on with it....
I have loved the X-Men since I was a kid and was pretty excited to pick up the new Blackbird jet.
Now I want to build a hanger bay to store it in.
(Hopefully this will eventually be attached to the Ideas X-mansion but let's be honest, does anyone actually think that one will pass?)
I would also like to include a roof with the iconic fold-away basketball court and have come across a few issues I was hoping to get some help with...
1.) The actual mechanism of the opening hatch is throwing me.
The jet itself is about 32x32 studs so even on a 48x48 baseplate this doesn't include a lot of space
Would simple hinges be too simplified?
2.) how on earth do I make a relatively realistic looking basketball court?
I've looked around a bit and all I have seen are large cardboard areas ("cheating" to me) or rather silly looking brick built angular shapes for the various line markings
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
Also, any advice on what to include in the build be great.
I already have it planned to have one of the walls open for viewing and will include inside a small toolshop area, engine repair area, fuel depot, and a crane to remove engines for maintenance
