I created this model about four months ago. It is a small set compaired to the other models I have built. I used a snowtroop to give the undoubtable appearence of a snowspeeder. The little orange piece that I have in the middle there is from an old Lego series called "Artic". If anyone remembers these sets please tell me so that I don't feeling like a old timer. I also used some old hinge pieces from before our modern locking pieces. The seat is ajustable and with a few tries I was able to be a snug fit for the snowtrooper.
The full cockpit basically tilts back to help achieve aerodynamicy and to puch aside the snow. The back portion or the main engine gave me a lot of trouble with that it did not want to be look right. I spent almost two hours to get the correct effect. I used the SNOT method for the first time to put the inverse roof brick on.
Lots of light to see your way in a dark snowy night... Like Alaska.
