Because I had almost all the equivalent parts in regular Lego (just missing
one!) I decided to make a miniature version:
I was searching for other Lego Phoenix on the web, and was surprised to find none at all, and just a few people mentioning that they had built them as kids. Surely it was a perfect fit, Lego and the Phoenix - the most common sloped pieces were red, and the most common bricks and flats (at least in my collection of Lego) were blue! So, c'mon folks, let's see other renditions! :)
In this shot you can see the side-mounted bricks, an attempt to
make the nose of the Phoenix look more pointed. As a kid, I just
used 3 4 wide slopes for each half of the nose.
Here you can see the back of Mark's ship. I remember thinking this
was so cool as a kid, that it fit so snug, and would slide out easily
on the tiles.
Here you can see how the nose opens to let Jason's car out, and
there's a look at Mark's ship too. I've attempted to make Mark's
ship fairly accurate (given the limitations of the small scale) but
I really haven't done anything with the car. I'll try and improve
that in the future. By the way, there's plenty of room for Princess
and Keyop's vehicles up and under the wings :)
Let me know what you think!
