[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.

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.

I am new to the forum and actually new to the world of lego MOC (I actually built few sets from Star Wars and wanted to modify them to my taste but never jumped so far). I wanted to modify the actual T16 Skyhopper set from Lego and started to look for MOC and found out your creation. I downloaded all the pictures and started to analyze them for trying to reproduce something similar (like others have said before and better than I would your set is incredible from my prospective).
Now comes the yes but. Would you mind revealing your secret of handling the connection between the top wing (the vertical one) to the structure (base) of the ship and how did you integrate the lateral wings to the structure as well to make it solide enough to play with ? I am actually building more and more Lego Star Wars sets for my four years old son who loves Star Wars (he is quite young but very delicate surprisingly with Lego).
Sorry for reopening this very old topic.
Thanks for your help or anyone else who could help me (as beginner).
