[MOC] Mobquet M-68 landspeeder (Han Solo speeder)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Mobquet M-68 landspeeder MOC. Corellian speeder driven by young Han Solo during the spectacular chase with Moloch. 853 pieces; 30 studs long and 16 studs wide (excluding the wing); 1:16 scale. Hovers on four almost not visible technic anti-gravity clear wheels. Detailed body and cockpit.

It was a very fun and enjoyable building process because of the asymmetry of the craft. There are planty of photos from the production of the movie and there is this great chase movie scene with different close-ups of the speeder, so it was'n hard to get the proportions and spot the details.

Very sleek, I love it! The greebling on the side looks great and I love how you’ve constructed the engines!

I have seen this one on FlickR earlier today. I like it. :)

I would have like it even more with a few studs on it. Typically with 6180 parts. =)

Yeah, been there.

It is a fun thing, but it generally takes more work than a symetrical vehicle.

I suppose the new Mustang was quite useful to have new dark blue parts, right ?

Did you consider going at a bigger scale with arches 6183 and 6003 on the right side ?

If it was in bigger scale i would definitely consider leaving some studs on but in this size I prefer studless design. I never considered going bigger. The aim was to finish not exceeding some 1000 parts. I wanted, let’s say, LEGO Creator Expert scale. When deciding on scale I thought of all the crucial shapes and details and I was pretty sure I would be able to pull them in such a scale. It is exactly the way you wrote - there is much more work with asymetrical vehicle, yet it gives you much joy. I loved those moments during the designing process, when I was pretty confused on where exactly the center lines of the build are :) And I never had a Mustang (yet) ;)

I see many MOCs photographed like yours with excellent lighting on white/grey backgrounds. How do you do it? Do you need photo editing software to touch it up after?

Absolutely amazing man, the attention to detail is phenomenal.  My favorite part is definitely the dice though, great use of the chain piece! The engine and exposed mechanics have a lovely amount of greebling. :)

I use shadeless tent, old Sony compact camera on a tripod and than I edit pics with standard editing soft. Yet I’m 100% amateur.
