December 23 – 74-Z speeder bike
One of my favourite all time vehicles from the Star Wars universe. I have tried to make a micro version of this countless times without success but then suddenly had a brain wave to use the 3l bar through a 1×1 brick along with the black mechanical claw to get the handles and then the black droid arms for the foot rests. After creating these two elements I could see the bike start to take shape and the rest of the build sort of fell into place. I used a brown 2×2 jumper plate for display but black or green would work nicely too.
More of Dimitri’s work can be found on his Instagram profile under the alias @legodimnico.
We recently built a minifigure scale version of the 74-Z speeder bike, if you have the pieces spare after these many excellent advent calendar builds…
Brick Fanatics would like our readers to get involved and construct a Star Wars model in microscale – the best build will win a rare LEGO Escape the Space Slug set. All of the details are available here.
