Since the prices for certain Lego Star Wars sets are borderlining silly (or way beyond that), I am quite happy doing my own interpretations of them. Like this one: a small, medium-range transport ship, which has been largely adapted by smugglers and such scum! I happily admit that I strayed quite away from the look of the original. I don’t see a point in repeating a 40 year old design, that has been made in Lego countless times before anyway. Also I wanted to build this one with the pieces I had. That should explain my choice of colour as well: these yellow bricks just begged for being used!
Yes, this one looks rather conventional, both in layout and building techniques, but that’s just what this ship wants to be: it’s a simple and affordable little ship that just gets the job done it is made for: transporting people and goods from Planet A to Planet B. The type is probably build in thousands, if not more.
Thanks to its simplicity the ship is not only cheap to produce, but also quite modifiable, which makes it popular in the intergalactic tuning-scene.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Coming next is part 2 of my Blacktron series!
P.S. I’m seriously considering giving it the name “The Canary”…
