Help with piece identification

I'm interested in building the plane in the link below.  There are enough photos that I should be able to pull it off however the only part I can't figure out is the two lower front pieces on the front of the plane.

Photo 5 shows them the best. It appears to be the shape of a brick 1x6 w/bow, rev however if you look more closely at the photos the sides on the pieces are 45 degrees or flare out to 45 degrees. .

I assume this was drawn using the moc software and perhaps these front two pieces are just in the software and not actual pieces that I could get my hands on.

Thoughts?

Brian

    It looks like BL part number 41764 and 41765 wedge

    I agree with oldtodd on the fuselage parts but there is something weird going with the top of the tail. I'm not familiar with what ever piece(s) were used for the vertical stabilizer. Since it shows that it is attached to the tail piece, it would have to be one piece. If it's 2 pieces, there would be a seam where you are trying to attached it to the two studs on top of the tail.

    Thanks for the help.....


    Ecmo47 - If you look at the photo 5 again to me it appears there is a seam. I had figured that the vertical stabilizer was just two angled pieces. I will have to look more close at it.

    Also if I can ask how did you locate 41764 and 41765? The only source I have is the pick a brick site where I sort by white and go through the pages looking for something close.

    I'm new at this and I know that knowledge and experience also goes a long way with it.

    Ok... dead in the water again. The back edge of the wing. Pick a brick shows nothing close to what they have. Looks to be 12 long with 1 wide on one end and 3 wide on the other end. The most I can find is 6 long.

    Pick-a-brick is much too limited to get any real building done. You MUST get familiar with Bricklink. Here is a link to the page with part #41764.

    Unfortunately, BL names parts like these two different ways. The parts you were looking for look like slopes but I know (from experience) that they can also call parts like this wedges. Found in the "wedge" description of the parts catalog.

    Ah! Here is a link to all the plate wedge pieces that Lego makes and, low-and-behold, there is a single piece used for the vertical stabs: #3474

    @ecmo47  Your first link goes to set #3474 a bag of 50 1 x 6 bricks. And wow is that wing an old part. Still using though.
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,084
    That is strange as the link is working correctly for me.
    Yes, #3473 was last made by Lego in 2005! 
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,084
    That an error on Brickset. I just added the "#" to the number. It goes to the same place on your post.

    Yes, that part is old. Let's see if BMiller can figure out the last date it was used in a set by Lego!
