6280 Armada Flagship alternate models instructions
Posted 12 May 2012 - 04:47 AM
A few years ago I found a website that had instructions for those cool alternate models on the back of our LEGO kits. I was building Dash Rendar's Ourrider from Star Wars at the time.
Anyway, I want to build the ship that's on the back of set 6280 Armada Flagship. Does anyone know where I can find these instructions?
Got this image from ToysPeriod.com, a very cool website that breaks down the kits part by part so if you're like me and trying to complete these older kits, you can see what your kit is missing. Anyway, back on topic here...
The one I want to build using a 2nd 6280 set is the ship at the top of the picture. Looks pretty basic, but those parts you can't see get tricky.

I'm sure there are websites like the one you mentioned that offer their own interpretation of the build, with instructions, but you won't find them from LEGO.
Sorry, I'm not familiar with the website you speak of, maybe someone here does though.

But not the Armada Flagship

Does anyone have instructions for the model I'm wanting to build by any chance? I might have to brave it and try to just figure it out on my own. Then I could take it apart and photo each step. An idea... I wish Lego gave the Armada more kits back then.

Interesting idea though! I have the original Armada flagship instructions, and I've always wondered what that floating thing with trapdoor and net was...
And why is it connected with a rope to the 'mothership'? Mysteries to me.
Now I see the instructions I should go and build my Armada flagship, just for the nostalgic feelings.

I played around with the build last week a little. I'm not satisfied with it, but here's a nice start:
I'm missing the lantern and a few other parts, but ordered replacements from LEGO.
Port view closeup.
Put in the cannon and changed the stern around a bit.
Still not happy with it. It's hard to tell how the flag pole is mounted from the pics on the box.
Another detail shot.
