Today I started a new model. I'll build it mainly using light bluish grey Technic parts. Here's a first sketch to plan Bricklink order:

I love this. The first picture looked like an abstract piece of art which I really enjoy.

I also will be following this topic. :classic:

I'm intrigued! At 120 cm you'll be using a lot of technic bricks *huh*:classic:

I really like your snowspeeder, so I have high hopes for this one :thumbup:

Any reason you chose to make it 120cm - other than being crazy big - the ship is very wide you know? :wink:

Finally, what mechanism are you planning for the wings?

Keep bricking

seeing what you did with the snowspeeder, I'm indeed looking forward to the Xwing.

Hi

typical i dislike WIP topics because most of them will not be updated or finished at all. But with your amazing SC tank you have shown how are good and entertaining WIP should look like.

Additional to that your work on Technic is great and is finished in greater MOCs.

According to my blueprints wings are correct. Grey plated area is the width of the motors and laser cannon are placed on top and below of wings. This will make them appear narrower :) Anyway this is at sketch stage at the moment.
