Plague busting building competition 2: Alt-builds

TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 1,447
Shall we have another competition?

It is an idea done before on here, but it should open up the field to more people as you can join in without having a zillion parts to hand.  Simply take any set you like and build something that isn’t shown on the box with it.  For example here’s the recycling skimmer  derived from #60249 Street Sweeper:



Any size, any theme and just a couple of conditions:

No extra parts snuck in.
Only one copy of one set.
If choosing a set from when alternate builds were shown on the box then those builds are also off limits.

Maximum 2 pictures per entry, although feel free to link to more off-site.

Feel free to enter multiple times per set, or with different ones.

I will let this run until the end of June.  A small prize will once again be on offer...

Have fun and get cracking!

    Yup.  Any set, any size, any theme.  So long as you can make something with the pieces that isn't the same as originally intended...

    On a weeks annual leave so spending extra time at home and managed to have a bash at another one. 
    The set formally known as #70735 - Ronin R.E.X.


    Will be the last one for a while as I'm seriously going to have to take some stuff apart and put it away before building anything else as the boss is looking at me funny whilst holding sharp objects.

    Pointy!
    The pointy came from trying to totally differentiate from the original build and not make it look stubby and silly with the huge canopy piece.
    I'm actually quite proud of how that front end went (and stayed) together with minimal parts usage.
    I do seem to have an affinity for retro type space craft that wouldn't look out of place in a Gerry Anderson TV show. I think it's an age thing (and probably why I like X-Wings so much). :)
