101 pieces with frame and driver. ;)

It’s hard to see but if look closely you’ll note that the frame is built off a single 1x1x1 5 studded brick. The pods are supported at 45 degree angles from the center brick and the sled is support at about a 20 degree angle. Coming forward from the center point are two trans poles support the weight of the engines and keep it from tipping forward at center point of the frame.

Simply beautifull pods. Stunning color combo; orange + grey works for me! But most of all the aligned 'electricity' pieces.

Nope, not glued. Glue + Lego = Makes me sick. :cry_sad::sick:

If you look closely at the trans and white frame under the ship that is the key. Read the description between the two images again and when I take it apart I’ll take a picture of just the frame.

Ah found an image I didn't use that you can see the frame in better.

Great work Rook! You've made good work with the small scale that is required here, I don't think I'll be entering the contest. And nice use of those box parts!

Very cool at first I thought this was normal scale until I realized that figure was the trophy from CMF, great job!
