Hello everybody!

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. :classic:

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. :classic:

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. :wink:

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. :classic:

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

Yours Christopher.

As with all your Creator alternates, this is excellent, Legostein. Not only does it feel realistic, most of it (I say most because the plate portions of the arms are a bit bulky) looks like the pieces were originally selected with the intention of making a sub, not two wheeled vehicles.

and thank you for your nice comments! :sweet:

It was really great fun to see every piece finally taking its final place in the little creation. :classic:

Another lovely Creator alternative, Legostein!  I can just imagine this diving down to the wreck of the Titanic.  :wub:

I'm always impressed by your imagination with these alternative models.  I'd never have thought to make a submarine out of two vehicles.

Awesome MOC Legostein.  I love how you've made something so different out of those two sets, and I do have a fondness for submarines...not sure why...  Well, keep up the good work. :classic:
