Creator Set 4939 Alternative: Aircraft Carrier

21 posts in this topic

Hello everybody!

While waiting for the new 2011 creator sets to come into the stores, I took an older creator set called "Cool Cars" (4939) from the year 2007. It has 206 pieces and cost 9.99 EUR four years ago. When I do alternatives of creator sets I usually try to make something completely different from the main models. Set 4939 is a typical car building set, and there are many possibilities of doing alternate cars with these pieces. Here, I'd like to present a microscale aircraft carrier from this limited parts variety. It comes complete with a complement of 2 planes and 1 helicopter. :classic:

That's it for the moment. Thank you for your time and interest. :classic:

Cheers,

Great job! I have this set, but I took it apart, as it wasn't all too exciting. Kudos on making the planes to go with this. I might try making something similar to this :thumbup:

Cool. Nice work on the aircraft carrier. The planes and helicopter really adds to it.

Great job! The chopper rotors are genius. The island looks a bit largeish, but I suppose that can't be helped.

I love this mini-aircraft carrier, great job on managing to get the necessary details, especially the tower and mini aircrafts. :thumbup:

That's really cool! It looks very clean considering how much you've managed to add to the detailing. I like it a lot :)

This is incrediblely lovely. Can't believe you used only parts from this to build into this cool aircraft carrier. In fact, it is so much better than the official ones. :wub:

Beautiful work Chris. You've really managed to use the pieces in a most successful way and the result looks very detailed for a microscale model.

That's creativity. :thumbup:

Hello,

and thank you once again. :classic:

I'm buying the set just to build the aircraft carrier. Nice job!

I hope you'll be able to locate one of these. As I said, it's one of the earlier Creator sets. I bought mine on a common auction platform. :classic:

Cheers,

Excellent! Happy building then! :classic:

Very creative and amazing! :thumbup: I might try building that sometime using your instructions.

Thank you. I see you also got active in alternate creator building. Isn't it fun? :classic:

Thanks gabe for digging up this topic again!

I haven't seen any of your microscale models yet - well, besides those from the event.

Absolute fantastic!

I once tried something similar with 4954 (built a train station) and I love building something different from a set, but your creations are, like you pointed out, completey different from the original. Very well done, Chris!

Now I've got to check out your other alternatives.
