Star-Lord (Peter Quill) is the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, who also happen to have a movie which just opened this weekend. I really like Star-Lord’s mask from the movie so I decided to have a try at it.
Back in May of 1999 LEGO released its first wave of Star Wars sets, and the 7140 X-Wing Fighter was my favorite of the bunch. The co-branding of LEGO and Star Wars ensured my interest in the LEGO hobby into my adulthood, and these past fifteen years (more than half of my life now!) would not have been the same without it.
To pay homage to this set on its fifteenth anniversary I purchased a sealed copy and rebuilt my original to immortalize both in a display case. Sure, LEGO Star Wars sets nowadays are bigger, better, and the figures are flesh-toned, but the memories I have from 1999 still hold a special place in my heart.
When I originally created the TIE cockpit based off the Lowell Sphere back in 2011, the TIE Interceptor was the first recipient of it. I’ve always loved all of the starship designs from Return of the Jedi, and the Interceptor is no exception.
I created the TIE cockpit design based off the Lowell Sphere back in 2011, originally for a TIE Interceptor. I then made this TIE Fighter, and have been occasionally revisiting the designs of the two since. I decided it was time to finally take some pictures and post them online.
The SFX Arwing is the signature starfighter from the original Star Fox video game for the Super Nintendo. I think the design of the Arwing has been updated for each subsequent game, but the SFX has hed a special place in my heart since I first played the game during a tournament weekend at Toys R Us back in 1993 and received a lapel pin as a reward for my (less than) stellar flying.
I’ve wanted to make an arwing using the sand blue 3×12 wedge slopes for the g-diffusers since the part first became available in 2004, but only last year got around to buying enough and building the g-diffusers. Once I saw the Furty Fox figure from the Chima line, I knew I had to finish the whole starfighter.
I’m really happy with how the whole thing turned out, especially the whole back end (using the large flags), the point of the nose, and the canopy design (which is borrowed in essence from my V-Wing Airspeeder).
