Which of all the vehicles was the most challenging?
I don't use bricklink, though I'm looking to start. Right now I just tend to work with what I have.
I did buy an Alien Conquest set with the sole purpose of using some of its pieces here, though. First time I'd ever done that.
Otherwise, everything here came from my collection that I've amassed since childhood. Some of the bricks on the Rattler are probably 30 years old (you can tell because some of the older ones are discolored. Hopefully I hid them well enough, though).
The Rattler was definitely the most challenging: making the wings moveable and sturdy, matching the right round shapes of the A-10, and finding the right ways to sub in other colors (mostly gray) for when I didn't have enough of or the right kind of blue pieces for what I wanted to do.
Glad you enjoy it!
