It's been a while since I've posted a regular MOC (as opposed to an animation) on Eurobricks :sceptic: , but I'm particularly proud of this one (and am trying to get it turned into a set on Cuusoo: bit.ly/LK5hH0). It is inspired by some of my favorite sets from the LEGO action themes of my youth (the early 90s). The Crystal Exploer Sub and Flying Time Vessel should be really obvious influences to anyone familiar with them  :tongue:

This is the "default configuration" because I think it looks the best like this, but the different vehicle components are all designed to be exchanged eaily to convert it into a number of more traditional vehicles.

Neat idea, the ability to swap different parts of it around is pretty cool  :thumbup:

Very creative. It reminds me of that car/plane I've seen before. :laugh: I love how versatile you've made the vehicle. It's got everything covered(land, sea & air).

This is so awesome. I just found your Youtube channel just over a month or two ago, and your creations are just so creative. Your stop motions are also too funny.  :laugh:

I really enjoy this creation as it almost modular, and you can interchange different sections to create different vehicles.  :wub:

PS: I supported in a heartbeat.  :classic:
