Very Cool Microscale Lego Dropship Diorama from AliensTatiana Danger8/28/15 11:20amFiled to: legoaliensLego1023EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkNew Zealand-based Lego builder Grantmasters recently completed this microscale build of the Cheyenne, the marine dropship from Aliens. With minimal bricks, he was able to create a very detailed diorama that includes the power plant.AdvertisementMicroscale builds are so cool because it’s fun to see what you can make with not very many bricks. As Brothers-Brick report, the “contrasting backdrops” are pretty rad as well, providing a stark contrast between “the planetary surface and the power plant.”I spent so many hours trying to get the shape on this closer to the reference pics I had. Whilst it looks similar, this thing has had a major workout. It’s better than it was but there are still 2 places that need problem solving. That crossover is a p.i.t.a! At the moment this is a functional build. All guns move as they should, the landing gear lowers and raises and the ramp lowers via a hinge to let the apc stow. - Grantmasters via FlickrHe even made an Armored Personnel Carrier to go with the dropship! The build comes complete with a payload bay, deck ramp, cockpit and fuselage.Confession: I’m more than a little obsessed with Alien...especially in Lego form:Exhibit A:ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode.
