I started off with building up the Cobb Vanth speeder using pieces of the 75299 set, based on the guide from reddit user stocky13, very smart use of inverted pieces to create the core of the speeder. The new Round 3 x 3 x 2 with Recessed Center and Axle Hole makes a great engine intake with the Bar with light cover.

I like it. Particularly the side-cart where Cobb sits is well integrated, better than on he one I did back when the episode first aired. But apparently my design was still good enough for the Chinese to steal it :def_shrug:

They even stole the angle on my image

this looks awesome, any chance getting some basic instructions, or should I just follow the mentioned instructions on reddit. yours seems a bit more refined, maybe just some info on your specific changes? 

by instructions I really just mean a description here in text, of course not proper instructions

I built my speeder exactly as stocky13's instructions on reddit, then I changed things bit by bit over the next 2 weeks. The design of the engine core with the 4 reddish brown triangular plates, and how the 2 air sccops are attached remained mostly the same. I removed a plate from his design so the spinner of the enigne lines up with the thrust cone at the back, when that was done, I was able to move the 3x3 wedges closer. The seat was simplied to an arm up plate and a 2x2 hinge plate, with a 1x2 plate for support, sitting on the inverted 1x2 bracket. 

The air scoop i wanted to keep to 2 plates thick, a 1x8 plate connects via 2 studs onto the hinge plate wihat finger, the second 1x8 is offset by 2 studs for the hinge arms. I used a 2x2 stud plate instead of all 1x2 stud plates to reduce the amount of gaps on the scoop and the grille pieces are not loose. I tried a lot of combinations to hide the hinge connections and not look bulky, I ended up using 2540 plate with bar handle open ends. 

Engine nacelle is connected by a 32073 axle 5 onto the inverted bracket, it uses one 2x2 round pate, one 2x2 round tile, two 98585, one 73111, one connector axle 2L, one bar with light cover. 

The thrust cone is a 2x2x2 cone with a vertical swirl round plate. The nozzle is stocky13's design. 

The rest are mainly superficial changes on how to decorate the 4 sides of the engine. I even used 2 projectile launcher 15301c01 for the base. Stocky13's design of inverted for half of the engine core allowed me to add 2 centreline pieces on the cowling.

Thank you very much! The pictures were already quite self explanatory but that description is very  helpful in order to get it right :)

I like this alot,

i might give it a try as I built stocky13's but it was very fragile and the engine core needed to be more round IMHO

Some more updates, the air scoops were too long, the tip are now formed by Wedge 2 x 1 with Stud Notches, followed by 2 x 3 tiles. The light bluish plates 1 x 8 are now offset by 3 stubs beneath the tiles.

I extended the Reddishe Brown Plate to the round plate on the driver side, I had to change how the seat is connected by moving the 1 x 2 plate. 

I added a second Round Plate 4 x 4 with 2 x 2 hole to enhance the round shape of the thrust blades. 

On the top of the engine I used two curved 1 x 1 double slopes and Curved 2 x 2 x 2/3 Slope.
