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!

Posted Image

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.

Very nice work, Renegade Clone! Don't know if it was what you intended, but the smaller size of this MOC and the one-person cockpit makes this a lovely example of a System-scale MOC. I don't see those very often with this level of quality. I'm not too sure about the cockpit area, as the triangular shape is a little squarish, but that canopy piece works nicely.

Really nice! Detailed and the stud/tile ratio is perfect IMO.

Great MOC, Renegade Clone. I really like its simplicity - it looks like something The LEGO Group could have released. The only thing is that you could maybe have fleshed out the underside more (@Brickdoctor: plenty more where that came from. :tongue:)

Great job. The only thing I'm not sold on is the biege 1x1 tile, but otherwise fantastic.

I had to look at this 5 times before answering. This is a GREAT MOC Renegade Clone, the perfect balance between Brickdoctors UCS like version and TLG juniorised version. It's small swoshable and very detailed. I love it well done :sweet:.
Could we have a closer look at the pilot please?

There's not much to add to what most people have said already - a really lovely looking system scaled T-16, except, nice work on the photo editing too :thumbup:

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

Hello!

A really fantastic looking skyhopper! :classic:

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! :classic:

Cheers,

Probably the best T-16 I ever saw. Very greatly designed. Agree to Legosteins comment with a brilliant
way to include the cockpit piece into this model.

I've reworked the underside to be more accurate whilst making the gun removable and replacing the stand with a technic axle.

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

Nice job on the underside :thumbup:, the Pilot also looks great with the flesh head.

Great. Perfect size. Looks like something LEGO would try to do, but ultimately fail at ;)
