About this creation
(Sorry, main picture came out blurry. will reupload later.)
These are some AG racing craft inspired by the Wipeout video games and one of their spiritual sucessors BallisticNG.
The idea was to use leftover parts and/or disassembled sets which I did not like that much.
So you will see here different styles of craft made from these themse:
I started with a selection of parts that were leftover from other sets (mainly star wars micro fighters) and came up with the idea to limit myself to these parts only plus the disassembled theme sets. This is the result.
This one is made 99% from the Galaxy Squad set 70701 "Swarm Interceptor". You will see that the cockpit is not ideally placed, but I was aiming more for the visual style than real functionality.
This is made from mainly micro fighters remains and the Exo-force Set 7708 "Uplink". This one cannot be completely recreated in LDD, because the exhaust padding in the back is made from part 44790pb01 (bricklink id,"hockey helmet").
This is made from M-Tron set parts! I was inspired by 6923 "Particle Ionizer" plus some space wheel parts for the engines. I tried to keep this simple and not to SNOTty.
Interestingly, the M-tron design ideas dictate that the cockpit must be on the front instead of closer to the engines like the other ones.
