Advent 2017 Day 6

Today’s models are a very clever airplane (City), a snowboard and slope to ride on (Friends), and a micro scale First Order Transporter ship (Star Wars). From the Christmas Build-Up we build a ladybug, and I designed a snowman out of the leftover parts.

City’s model is a propeller plane, which resembles a WWII fighter in shape, but not in color. It’s a smart design, with the fuselage consisting mainly of headlight bricks.

Here’s a side/rear view so you can get a better idea how it’s made.

The Friends model is quite simple – two slopes, a 1×2 brick, and a snowboard. Yawn.

On the box, it shows the pug dog using the snowboard on this model, so I’ve posed that here, along with the bunny from Day 3.

The Star Wars model is a pretty good build. Jay says it’s a First Order Transporter or Atmospheric Assault Lander which featured in The Force Awakens. I saw that movie when it came out, but don’t remember this ship.

For Christmas Build-Up we get to make an adorable ladybug ladybird beetle.

With the leftovers I made a snowman.

So far I’ve been batting 1.000 at making the instructions in a timely manner for these MOCs – see yesterday’s post for instructions on how to make the tropical fish.

[Added Dec 7th] Here’s the instructions for the snowman:
