Blaze Starfighter

I know the pictures are a little darker than usual, but I had to turn off one of the lights or there would be a big glare on the cockpit. Anyway, this is probably on of my better ships. It features landing gear, an unconventional cockpit design, and a pretty neat control system. It's yellow because, well, I had a lot of yellow pieces.

Here's a shot of the side:
Here's a shot of the interior:
Here's a shot of the back, showing the detail of the engines and the landing gear.

Air Taxi

My mom got me the car designer set from Wal-Mart (it was on clearance =D!). So I had these red pieces, some cool new window pieces, and a bit of inspiration. By the way, the piece on the back end of the engine is the top part off the head of a light-up Darth Vader minifig. I guess they count as a piece, and they're pretty nifty for adding extra detail.

A shot of the front. The ID plate is a blurry. Sorry 'bout that.

Here's a shot if the interior. Nothing too fancy, but I like how the gray piece on the right makes where you can have two levers really close together.

Bubble Car

This is a little ship I made called the Bubble Car. I was surprised that Lego pieces could be used this way, but then again I think it did get voted "Most Versatile Toy Ever". It's probably one of the most unique designs I've ever seen. It fits in your hand and took less than 100 pieces to build, I think.

Basically it's one of those big bottom pieces with Tri-Fighter links around it and a bubble cockpit.

This is a close-up of the interior. A little jam-packed, but I think it looks ok. This was the start of me getting into detailed interiors.

Just a little pic of the side. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think!
