Micro Scale Pod Racer: PCHLUG 101 Challenge Podracing!
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.

I like it! You’ve packed a lot of detail in a small scale. Keep them coming. :thumbup:

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!
