A New Hope...
...to drive a Sandcrawler.
About this creation
Hey everyone,

Well, after re-watching A New Hope, my favorite of the six Star Wars movies, I realized once again just how awesome the Jawas' Sandcrawler is! Don't you think it would be incredibly fun to drive one of those around a desert?

Anyways, I just had to build one, in micro-scale of course, and a small scene from the movie. I hope you enjoy!







The Lars Homestead in glorious micro-scale. Let me tell you, whoever came up with micro-scale building is a genius! ;) It's a great challenge, loads of fun, and it doesn't require a lot of pieces to boot!





The Sandcrawler! Boy, was this a blast to make!







The tracks were the hardest part of the whole crawler to build. Though not perfect, I'm really pleased with the final design.



And finally, an un-edited close up of the homestead.

Thanks a lot for viewing! Comments and criticism are much appreciated.

Have a great day,

Mark

This has some really clever techniques, but some hills/dunes, SNoTed or not, would double its effect.

Awesome micro build. I love it. Microscale stuff is my favorite stuff. I've posted a bunch of micro things. You're right, it is fun to make and it doesnt take a ton of brick too. Excellent job, make some more.

Quoting Graeme Straughn Nicceee!! Great tan! I think NOT making it SNOT might give it a bit more of a "Dessert feel". Just a thought!
Yeah, you have a point. I think a mix would have been best. Unfortunately, I couldn't have done that anyway because our collection of tan plates is practically nil. :( Thanks!
