Indiana Jones: Cairo Ambush
Cairo bigvig with new parts...
About this creation
Since i got the new little indy set (Ambush in Cairo) I had to do little diorama from it....
Yeah i know that this isn't movieaccurate- but i wanted to use all elements from the set...This is kinda review of the set actually....

some music....

Set includes basket- horse carriage and market stand plus four minifigs (great!) all other here is of course built by me...

I added this custom naziagent.....

And there were some problems in the set i wanted to correct:

First of all sword of Cairo Swordsman wasn't best possible- i think this silverscimitar from kid's pirate sets is better (they were on shops few years ago i bought some to get pirate parts)
Ironically there is even better turban for him -it will be published in Prince of Persia line...but black turban and printed scarf are good enough...

Sides of the carriage were tan 6x1 tiles but i added similar parts -with printed woodpattern from old adventurer- sets- now it looks even better i think...

Last improvement is cover to the basket- why there were no 4x4 plate- it fits perfectly...

I have soon some sw-vigs coming also...

Quoting JT Durante You know what works better than a scimitar from TLG....a BrickArms Dadao...
First- i'm not using stuff from brickarms only official legoparts- if not possible then made some customs of my own- secondly brickarms dadao is not perfect either so why i would use it- but thanks for suggestion...

Quoting Commander Fero OO thanks for the reply and also I think you should make cad bane using indys hat,backpack and maby legs. think I should do rookies for one of my mocs?
Indyhat is not perfect but ok. for bane i wonder would hat of Johnny Thunder look better or not- satchel would be pretty good- i'll do him to the hostage crisis at least- maybe even before that... Yeah rookiees are nice episode do moc from that!

now that is a true improvement to the set, you've made it excellently on the setting, you've got the building style of eastern buildings well

Quoting Commander Fero awsome Is the set really good? cause you made it feel awsome! nice job!
It is really small- but almost all parts are very rare and useful- torch/club, apples, basket, silver frying pan- old looking silver sword(i changed it), gold plate two smaller "backbaskets", Tommygun, of course indy with accessories- marion- two all-new fleshcolored figs another have turban and other great hood for ninja for example- two carriage wheels, some yellowbricks- four staffs, brown "cannonballs" (meaning round 1x1 bricks with hole)- So i would say awesome- more minifigs than in Republic assault shuttle- so it is (almost) underpriced compared to sw-sets...
