PaM-43h "Wraith", PaM-53q "Spectre", PaM-38c "Phantom"

Postby darksyntax » Mon Jan 16, 2017 5:50 pm

A frame build challenge ala Mantiking's Single Set Challenge using only the current PaM parts (Q1 2017) that you can buy in any quantity in PaB cups. PaM topic here.

Left to right:
PaM-43h "Wraith" (67pcs in soldier loadout)
PaM-53q "Spectre" (68pcs in soldier loadout)
PaM-38c "Phantom" (56pcs in soldier loadout)

All in soldier loadout w/ SSR d6W d6W d6Rd d6Rd d6B d6Y d6G d8Rr .

Basic frames d6W d6W (quad still has d6G for 4 legs).

The Spectre and Phantom are really solid and stable frames, but the Wraith can be a little back heavy due to the forwardness of the feet (parts limitations...). Also the core of the Wraith is a little unstable as each of the double-ended ballplates are only attached by one stud. The 2x3 plate in the chest helps stabilize them a bit, but were this not a PaM challenge I'd swap the two new headlights with a 1x2 brick with studs on both sides.

LDD file (the jumperplate over ball end of the double-ended ballplate wouldn't align in LDD so I subbed in a single-ended plate; it's red in the model)
There're a couple bonuses in the LDD for the Wraith: a missile pod d6Ra , and an alternate chest (technically an alternate waist/pelvis though).

C&C solicited as always!

I'm amazed you actually got all three "main body types" down with that set of parts.

They're all superb and solid, really nice work!

Yeah. I'm with VitorFaria here. Those are some really nice looking frames. Great use of those Mixel ball-joint parts.

These make me REEEAAALLY wish I had a Lego Store within driving distance. These PaB SSCs are amazing!

I second every part of this statement!
I especially like the stripes of orange.

All of these are sexy. Looks like this round's PaB was pretty generous.
