SSC: 31015 Emerald Express

Postby Hackjob » Thu Jun 02, 2016 6:28 pm

I saw a couple reviews on this set a while ago, and figured I'd give it a try. I aaalllmost used all the pieces, got the 2 little wheels and a technic pin left.

Edit: I forgot to mention this is a Single Set Challenge.

I was able to make this Ion Cannon Frigate and a sensor bouy or tiny outpost, coud be an HVA. I'm pretty happy with the build, almost temped to buy some more and make a fleet...

Ion Cannon Frigate: d6Rd d6Rd (cannon), d6Y (sensor dish), d6B (chaff launchers), (free) d6G

Great design, I wouldn't have even know it was SSC if you hadn't mentioned.

Ha! That's cool! I have a bunch of these sets, never even thought to try turning it into a spaceship!

For all that I love the sleeker ship designs, I kind of adore the blockier, Lego-ier feel to this one. Nice work!

Loved the "studs down" approach!

Cool upside-down build.
I like the way you handled the bridge ;-)
