Today I'd like to share another creator alternative building set with you. This time I have combined two pretty similar sets: 5761 Mini Digger and 6742 Mini Off-Roader. They both only cost 4.99 EUR / 4.99 GBP / 5.99 USD, and have a combined piece count of 120 pieces.
As there are so many official creator cars, I decided to do something comepletely different again: a little yellow submarine! It uses more than 100 of the available pieces.
It is a clean design with clear colour lines, just like the great designer set 4888 Ocean Odyssey. It comes complete with transparent bubble cockpit and even a rear window, two gripper arms, plenty of headlights, quad propeller engine (three rear, one front), and a nice greebly top with all the technical stuff.
Here is a detail view of cockpit, headlights and arms:
In this view you can see a little SNOT technique. It was needed to attach cockpit and arms in a different orientation. It was a bit tricky due to the limited SNOT pieces in the two sets. It's a combination of headlight bricks and a 1x4 bracket.
And finally a shot of the rear cockpit.
Of course there are building instructions available which you can access here: Creator Submarine building instructions
With that I am done for today.

Thanks for stepping by, and have a great week-end!
