74-Z Speederbike V3
Well, here's my 3rd and maybe final version of my 74-Z. I actually finished this over a month ago but never got around to photographing it and posting it up on here, so I apologize about some of the dust... Anywho, please let me know what you think!
About this creation
First off, I want to thank BRICKDOCTOR for blogging this MOC.



Detail work under the bike. This is as important as the upper, more-visible part of the build.






Much better legs, right??? In my opinion, there is no way you can make a minifig straddle one of these without making the bike look wierd. So, this is my solution to that and I really like it!

Awesome! One of, if not the best minifig scale speeder bike I've seen, and the legs are brilliant. Great work!

I missed this little gem! Really nice work on the bike, but I must say, I love the legs of the trooper.

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Very nice, Eric! There are some great techniques throughout this little thing. Namely, the exhaust flaps, foot pedals, and handle bars. I think the fig's legs could be shortened in the black area by using round studs instead of bricks (I think that was mentioned already). As far as no control panel (which is kinda distracting), use a tile with printed control panel on it. Great work, though!
Thanks! I wanted to use a printed tile for the control panel but didn't want to change the color. I would really like to find a sticker for it but do not have any in my collection at the moment. As for the legs, I tried that technique before but it looks very wierd. Pretty much any techniqe where the fig's legs are changed are going to look wierd. I guess the real challenge for this build is not the bike being awesome in this scale, but to get a fig to look good on it. Hrrrmmmmm :/

very cool, very accurate, nice techniques. My only gripe, like Moodswim, I think the bikerscout's thighs are too long but that is a very minor concern. The bike itself is excellent!

Some definite improvements over version 2. Nice work. I might have to try the rear flaps trick on mine. :)

Quoting Kyle Peckham Stunning. The work that you have put into this since the last version is great! I love the back of the speeder, the hidden pack and small sloped sides rally bring this piece to life. Hey Eric, since you are a great Star Wars ship/vehicle builder (and I am improving), do you think I could get away with building an Episode 1 Vulture Droid in dark blue (instead of tan), for a contest for Episode 1 vehicles? Keep up your great work! - Kyle
Thanks, dude! As far as your Vulture Droid being movie accurate (if that's what you are going for), it might not work. But, some people might not even notice that. Depending on how you do your build can hide the fact that it's blue instead of tan. Take as much time as you can on it and do a lot of new techniques that you haven't seen anyone use on a Vulture Droid and you will be fine. Thanks again buddy!

Very nice and accurate! But, those legs, while an improvement, are quiet distracting. I understand your problem though, an agree that a proper position is near impossible, I do suggest trying to shorten his legs, perhaps replacing the cylinders with single stud plates. I've been thinking of alternate methods, the only other I can think of is attaching the legs with an elastic. However, seeing as the bike is main course, I have to say, excellent rendition, especially the handle bars.
