Trident Assault Craft (Lego Version) Finished . Finally, I present to you my Trident Assault Craft. It is my first project that I designed in LDD, and then made with real Lego! I know I've said this already, but in case you didn't know it can stand on its own, the legs are posable, and the drill can spin. It has a few changes to the original design, including color changes (due to unavailability on Bricklink or price), as well as some minor piece changes. I strengthened the internal structure within the Trident Assault Craft's head, and I changed the length of the drill. Now that I've built it in real Lego, I want to make it an actual Lego set. I know that when many people saw this in the Star Wars the Clone Wars TV show, they thought that Lego was going to make one of these. But there's been no news that they are. So go to this link: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/8192, and support my project. This website is operated by Lego to help get fan based ideas for actual Lego products. When I've reached 10,000 supporters the design will be sent to the Lego group for consideration. While you're there be sure to check out other creations! .

This is the drill, which does spin.
This is looking up at the point of the drill, I couldn't make it a perfect tip, but I think it looks fine.
I wanted to make make the macaroni pieces brown instead of dark grey, but they were way too expensive for the amount I needed.
These are all four of the plates that I used for the head.
Here is a view of the head's internal structure. I used hinge plates to attached the plates on the outside of the head, and these hinge plates were attached to a series of grey plates, which were connected to the head at two places.
I used a ton of hinges on the inside of the head!
This is where all of the "windows" are. They are supposed to be yellow, but there weren't any 4x4 dome like pieces in trans-yellow, so I got the next closest thing: trans-neon green.
Thanks for viewing! Be sure to rate and comment.
