[MOC] MINI Han's M-68 Landspeeder (Solo)

Recommended Posts

Hello again everyone

This time I present my last (I can’t think of anything else to build?) model from Solo – Han’s Landspeeder.

Han Solo acquired his overpowered Mobquet M-68 Landspeeder under circumstances he doesn’t care to explain. 😉 The M-68 is a favorite of Corellian speeder enthusiasts, as its repulsorlift generator is easily modified and overcharged.

This was quite a tricky little build to keep the overall shape and sleekness in this scale.  It is supposed to resemble a sports car after all.

The first problem I came across was the windshield.  1x1 clear cheese slopes looked too small and the 1x2 panel was just too upright and looked terrible.  In the end I managed to use some slopes which have been turned on their ends.  They are attached using bricks with a stud on the side and a tile on the studs of the slopes.  Luckily it fits perfectly in the space for them.

Another part was the “spoiler” at the back.  Luckily those new 1x1 brackets came in dark blue!

Then the engines.  I went through a few different versions before finally using this:

These pieces are then attached using 2 headlight bricks in the main body of the model and then attaching another 2 to these to be able to attach the above piece.

Anyway, I think this model looks pretty good if I do say so myself, nice and sleek!

Hope you like it.

Jon

Thanks guys.

Quite a lot of planning for techniques and parts went in to this one.

Nice, crisp appearance. Looks like a free gift with a magazine, which is meant as a compliment! The only thing I might change would be the window pieces - they look a bit 1970s in a 2019 model...but maybe there's nothing more sophisticated that would fit there.

thanks again.  I think i covered the windscreen in the original post.  i tried a few different pieces but this is the only way to get the right size and shape I could think of.  If anyone else has a better idea i am all ears.......
