Pieces: 157 (will be more when other stuff is added)
Minifigs: 3

WIP

Based on the Republic's Swamp Speeder, the Marsians use this scout transport to search for the enemy bases on Tantooine. The tan camouflage allows them to blend in with their surroundings and the cannons to blast the opposition. The engine is far more powerful than the rival Swamp Speeders.

Ah. *recounts* Typo.  :hmpf: It is 157 peices. It will be around 200 when the new bits and bobs are added methinks. :alien:
Thanks for the heads up. I might have gotten disqualified. :blush:

Btw, I am adding two cranes, and a prison/cargo carriage on the back for naughty tuskens and scavenged parts. :thumbup:

Looking good, JD.  :thumbup: The design is great, but I think it could use a color change. I don't remember much about the Life on Mars line (I only got one set), but maybe a more futuristic approach would be better. Lime green, aqua green, orange and blue would be some colors that I suggest for a Life on Mars themed set. :classic:

I must agree with Jim. The color scheme reminds more of Harry Potter than Mars Mission. :sceptic:  You will need to work on that. And of course, you'll also need to make sure to meet the 200-piece requirement. Other than that, it looks pretty good. :thumbup:

Could KimT please move this topic to the main SW thread? :classic:  I would like to add my other entry rather than this one.

Thanks. :thumbup:
