When I returned home from my first major yard sale acquisition, I dumped out my haul to assess my new inventory. I had scored several pricey minifigs (Davy Jones, for one), and a large pile of pieces that I thought were interesting or useful. Then, I decided I should take advantage of this new resource by building something. I enjoy "winging it" when I build, so I dove right in and started putting things together. This was one of the products of that endeavor, and my personal favorite.
This is the first ship I have built in the red, black, and trans-neon green of M-Tron from 1990. It is one of my favorite space themes, but I haven't worked much in it due to lack of resources.
|The finished product. All of the pieces came from the same yard sale except the M-Tron pilot, which I had on hand.|
|As seen here, the front section is built around the base of a cannon from|
a pirates set.
|I accomplished a visually interesting shape with the diamond-shaped front|
and curved rear.
|It has enough trunk space to hold a few tools and one of the|
signature magnet-topped boxes of the theme.
