“Hang on, Dack. Get ready to fire that tow cable”

T-47 Airspeeder, by LiLmeFromDaFuture, on Eurobricks

 

It seems to be The LEGO Group’s favorite Star Wars vehicle, with it’s numerous incarnations. And still, apart from the UCS version, none of them truly captured the iconic look of the snowspeeder. LiLmeFromDaFuture‘s one you see above, succeeds where the official ones failed. It’s the result of three months reiterating to come to the perfect fighter. Working with LDD and together with the kind commentators here on the forum, it seems like he’s tried every single possibility to come to what could be described as the definite LEGO Snowspeeder. It’s quite amazing how a number of techniques have been used to create the perfect, clean shape. There’s the notable use of a combination of SNOTted slopes and studs-up plates for the perfect balance of smoothness and accuracy of shape. And you might not have noticed the fact that the cheese slopes delineating the air intakes and supporting the cannons have been offset half a plate to form a perfectly smooth whole. The new windscreen part also fits perfectly. The amount of detail is quite impressive: just look at those air intakes, the different sizes of cooling fins, the brakes in several places… It’s one of those models you can really see the dedication in. You’ll see no accidental gaps here, no compromises: it’s completely ready to take on the Empire all by itself! We can only hope LiLmeFromDaFuture will use his patience, openness and talent for more and bigger vehicles… the future looks promising indeed! Right now, check out the airspeeder in great detail here, or get more insight into how it grew over the past couple of months here.
