model is inspired by classic space sets 918-1 and 928-1 (also known as LL-918
and LL-928), taking inspiration from the shape and colour scheme from the
original sets, but changing it quite considerably in many ways, for example I
gave the wings highlights of dark-bluish grey. I tried to give it the style of
the 70s sets whilst making it look like a more modern Lego set. This model
utilises the distinctive yellow and black striping from 928-1, but I have given
it a modern look, stacking plates to make it smaller. This has allowed me to
fit this motif into more places than if I had used the same method as the
original, appearing subtly on the nose and on the tail.
model has three posable landing legs, which have smooth bases to allow the
spaceship to be easily pushed across surfaces. Its wings heavily use SNOT
techniques which, because they can be built directly into the central structure
of the model, are quite strong! Using SNOT in the wings has also allowed me to
build in greater detail as I mentioned earlier with the striping. The model is
made up of 406 parts.
Thanks for supporting and I hope you like this
