[MOC] T-16 Skyhopper
Posted 26 September 2011 - 10:25 PM
I came up with the basic construction for this T-16 years ago but never refined it until recently when Brickdoctor's version stirred my interest in it again. I'm now very happy with its stability and swooshableness!
The light cannon can have a stack of translucent 2x2 round bricks attached to make a display stand.
Due to the angled construction of the hull, it was fun trying to block up all the areas around the engine with greeblies!
I managed to cram both a seat and control column into the cockpit. I may replace the 2x4 red tiles with custom stickers over the 4x6 modified plates.

Super work buddy - and I thought you were gone for good.
Boy am I glad I was wrong.

I like how you included the Lars' homestead on the last pic

A really fantastic looking skyhopper!
I appreciate the solution you have found to include a "trigonal" glass to both sides of the cockpit by hiding this windscreen pieces under the structure. Very clever!

It should be blockier in the back. I do like the change you've made, though.

He's just the original 4477 pilot with a flesh head.
Nice job on the underside , the Pilot also looks great with the flesh head.
