I spent 2 weeks trying to get this as accurate as possible!

I spent quite a bit of time getting the fig to look right, as well.

This is great, Mood! It's not quite Miniland scale, I think, we should call it Mood-scale, since your articulated frame defines it. :grin: Nitpick from me would be that the visor of the scout's helmet doesn't extend to the sides.

Thanks, Doc!  When I started on the Scout's helmet, I did try several different techniques to get the visor to look right, but everything I tried made the head look too wide, so I had to use the scaled-down version you see.

What about two more of the white neck brackets on top of the front edge of the 2 x 3 white plate? Since you already used those in the helmet, you won't make the head any wider.

This is well done! It's a great scale we don't see enough of!
Love the tiny gun the scout is holding!  :laugh:

Very nice M<0><0<DSWIM, a very good size vs. detail ratio. The trooper is the best thing about it, but the speeder isn’t bad either, I like how you did the peddles  :thumbup:.

Another excellent creation Mood! Nice to see this up-scaled version as it affords the proper positioning of the scout-trooper in the 74-Z. Great job as always! :thumbup:

This looks great.  Not only the speeder is well built, but I love the scout trooper.  The shape looks spot on and next to LEGOs, you can really see the flaws of their version.

Great job :thumbup:

Awesome creation! I also spotted this MOC on MOCpages where I commented on.  :classic:

The Scout Trooper seems very moveable, which is great. The speeder looks nice too. What about a Luke and Leia riding another bike in a nice chase scene?

Thanks!  I originally planned on having a moc of the whole chase scene, but getting this part built (torn apart, rebuilt, rebuilt, etc) was hard enough!
