Elite Microfighters

Elite Dangerous Microfighters

A set of 3 of my favourite spaceships from the video game Elite: Dangerous!

They seat a minifigure each, but can also be easily modified to have no minifigure seat.

This project includes:

Cobra MkIII - The iconic Cobra is a general purpose vessel, very popular with traders. It is the main spacecraft in the classic 1984 space game "Elite". With its striking triangle-with-corners-chopped-off shape, it lives on with style in the 2014 reboot "Elite: Dangerous". More info and images of the Cobra as it appears in game can be found here and here. This model is 21cm wide, and made of 381 parts.

Imperial Courier - The sleek white Courier is a fast and formidable fighter. More info and images of the Courier as it appears in game can be found here and here. This model is 21.6cm long, and made of 290 parts.

Asp Explorer - The Asp also dates back to the original game, and is a firm favourite among galactic explorers. More info and images of the Asp as it appears in game can be found here and here. This model is 14cm long, and made of 267 parts.

3 Minifigures - Female and male Commanders in stock black Remlok Suits, and an Imperial Baron in a white Remlok suit.

After my previous Elite related Lego project, the larger scale Asp Explorer, I wanted to make something a little more simple and cute. I decided to make a set of ships that are small, but still authentic to the original shapes, aiming to have something that works well as both desk toys for big kids, and as microfighters for small kids. As with most Elite ships, solving the awkward angles was key.
