Hello there.

My entry is called 'OMS' or 'One Man Speeder'. Lets start off with the desciptions and story:

Name - OMS (One Man Speeder)
Pieces - 69
Minifigure(s) – 1
Background story: A light and fast transport, the OMS is used in the lower levels of Coruscant for daily patrols. The OMS can also be used on other dry planets for reconnaissance missions. It has twin blasters, a small engine, and can carry one clone trooper.
The two clips at the side could be used for placing secondary weapons or some tools. They are really meant for docking with an RGS.

Now onto the model itself,

The overall view:

Hope you liked it! :thumbup: I'll be replacing the above pictures with newer pictures because the set is not as good as it could be. :sceptic:

I love it :pir-wub: :wub:  The best part is how he can shoot with one hand and fly with the other.


And it doesnt need to be fixed it looks fine :pir-wink:

Looks nice but it is a bit disproportionate. The front wedges are too big.

It looks great, especially the engine in the back.  The front wedges are a bit big, but still look ok.  You may want to try it with smaller wedges if you have them, and then see which you like better.  Great job though!

Thanks. I tried to make the OMS look streamlined and not like the other speeders with the poles and those triangular plates. I suppose I could use the peices on the ARC-170 for the front.

I tried adding the smaller wedges like you suggested but I think it looks a bit crap compare to what it looked like in the photos.  :tongue: The wedges are too small whereas these I think are perfect. :thumbup:
