I knew it was time to start a new MOC with ACPin's Community build, and I had always wanted to build a T-47 airspeeder, so this was perfect timing. So after two weeks of building and taking pictures, here is my result. I used inspiration from Larry Lars, and Bricdocter, and of course a lot of my own. So here is my result, so please enjoy.

Wow this was almost at the bottom of the page when I saw it. These are great Darth Yogi, I love the smooth look and the side guns.

The front looks a bit long and the cockpit too short, but other than that it looks pretty cool.

I'm sure the usual subjects will have paragraphs of criticism though.

I agree that the front looks a little bit elongated, but this is still a great MOC of the Snowspeeder.  Snowspeeder MOCs never cease to amaze me; this is leaps and bounds beyond the crappy Snowspeeder that LEGO always puts out.

I agree that this is way better than any of the official versions!  Love the smooth tiled look to this.  Great work! :thumbup:

How did I miss this? *huh*
It's really well done, and after you make those little adjustments from above, I'm sure it'd be greater :sweet:

Excellent work, Darth Yogi!

I realize that it's quite hard not to make a T-47 that's better than TLG's, but you've still done some superb work here. The only major criticism I have involves the rear blocks on the wings, which I think really miss the air brakes. To me, those are an essential part of the design of the T-47.

Indeed – why the set is even considered a standard anymore is beyond me! :laugh:
Couldn’t he have used 3x3 wedge plates for the in place of the oversized 3x6 wings? Or are there simply no slope bricks that fit that angle?

He could use 3x2 wedge plates, which are the same angle, but the lines don't look as good. They look too jagged, because the horizontal 3x2 sticks out a stud. What's really needed here is a 3x4 wedge plate, which doesn't exist. The 3x6 offers the best-looking compromise.

What I was getting at was whether a 45-degree angle wedge couldn't be used, as seen here.

Well, when you're talking attaching the wedge plate to a hinge, then pretty much any angle becomes achievable and any plate within acceptable size ranges can be used. That plate isn't my first choice because it creates gaps.

Thanks for all the comments guys.  I agree that the front is a little long, and will probably fix that sometime, as well as the air brakes.  And of coarse its better than TLG's version :tongue:  

Thanks for the blog.
