Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Action and Adventure ThemesThis model was originally set 31064, (Seaplane Adventures), a 2017 official Lego set from the CREATOR line, with some of the ideas from set 5935 (Island Hopper) from the 2000 ADVENTURERS line thrown in for good measure. I also added an updated figure of the pilot (Ms. Pippin Reed) plus a printed map tile. This twin-engine model is a seaplane, which means it can only land on water. No wheels would make for a very rough landing on dry ground! The model has two opening hatches (one for the pilot and one for loading cargo) and removable roof section for access to the cargo compartment. I got the printed 2 x 4 tiles on the rear of the plane from the 2010 Toy Story 3 line set "Western Train Chase". As the former lead reporter for Adventurer Times, Miss Pippin Reed was reporting on a Dr. Kilroy's 1920 discovery of a copy of the Book of the Dead when she met Johnny Thunder at a dig site near Cairo, Egypt. They have been good friends ever since, even though Ms. Reed happens to be an better aviator than Johnny. She currently is employed by Harry Cane as one of his best pilots. She usually files the Island Hopper on cargo runs into Europe and Africa, but has known to take the plane as far away as the Pacific Ocean / Dino Island and the Far East. In this picture we see the Adventurers' home base / resupply depot with the seaplane called the "Island Hopper", the large tramp steamer "Eastern", and the smaller tugboat "Gulf Stream". This photo is just for fun (read: not included in the LDD file), and features all the good-guy Adventurers vehicles and their home base, along with the seaplane called the "Island Hopper", the large tramp steamer "Eastern", the smaller tugboat "Gulf Stream" and Johnny Thunder's car "Treasure Raider". Any comments, Questions, Suggestions, and Complaints are always welcome. NOTE: The supply base and the other vehicles have thier own thread here or, if you are more into the bad guys, check out the Sinister battle-cruiser here and his secret submarine here.
This model was originally set 31064, Seaplane Adventures, a 2017 official Lego set from the CREATOR line. I then extended the rear of the body about 8 studs, and lengthened the tail about 2 studs to be a little further away from the body of the aircraft. The MOD uses about 105 more parts to do this, but it gives in return an extended cargo area with removable roof section. This is in addition to the two hatches already on the stock model. Here is the main pic of the plane. The only LDD error I got from building this model was this part that keeps the dark blue engine part from rotating. It works in real life, but in LDD it doesn't go all the way on... go figure! The rear of the original set has a opening rear hatch for cargo loading, which is a feature I kept in my MOD of the set. The other hatch on the set is for accessing the cockpit, while a removable roof panel allows for the cargo area to more open for play-ability. The MOD uses about 105 more parts than are in set 31064 to complete the upgrade. The parts needed are above, and are grouped separately from the actual parts included in set 30164 in the file. This is so you can but the stock set from LEGO and then buy rest of the parts from Brick-Link, Brick-Owl or whatever site you use to buy parts from. Here is the ldd file for the modified plane. Remember: if you feel so inclined, any comments, questions, and / or complaints are always welcome!
