December 18 – Hammerhead Corvette
The Hammerhead Corvette is tiny but mighty, as we witnessed in Star Wars Rogue One.
The main body of the build starts off with a classic space brick with studs on the sides. The stud with hole in fits into the protruding end to become one of the engines. The cheese wedge sits on top at the other end, and the tile is straddled across the other top stud.
Buckets attach to minifigure brackets to create another two engines. The other end of the bracket is gently pushed over the studs under the tile. This tile hides the gaps underneath. The baby bow pieces have 1×1 plates attached on the bottom, these then clip to the studs towards the front facing back, blocking in the minifigure brackets.
The bottom engine is another bucket attached to a minifigure bracket, this time attached to an inverted baby bow piece, extended up with 1×1 and 1×2 plates. This then connects to the bottom of the build and finishes off the rear section.
The middle section is a 1×1 brick with studs on 4 sides. On one side, just a round tile, either side of that connects a stud and a tile, with a cheese slope on the fourth side. The large minifigure pickaxe handle is threaded with Technic half bushes, then inserted into the stud on top of the middle section.
Line up the middle section with the rear section, so that the cheese slope is at the bottom, and the larger of the pickaxe blades is facing straight down. Connect together and your Hammerhead Corvette is ready to shove around some Imperial Star Destroyers.
