Sparkbee fighter in Leicester Square Lego brand store community showcase
Star Wars ship by me and hexagonal landing pad by Jon Gale.
The ‘Sparkbee’ is a custom Star Wars spacecraft, inspired by the design of both the X-Wing fighter and the Y-Wing, the ageing workhorse of the Rebel fleet.
It’s an ‘Ugly’, a prototype ship cobbled together from parts of several different vehicles in the Star Wars universe. Four upgraded Y-Wing engines provide increased speed. The custom hull design has extra space for transporting passengers, such as high-ranking Rebel officers. The front cannon is made from parts harvested from stolen Imperial AT-DP walkers.
Play features include a retractable rear ramp, folding undercarriage, and a trapdoor for the astromech droid to drop out of. The ship took about three months to design and build and was featured in issue 22 of Blocks Magazine in 2016.
Here's a shot of Jon's landing pad, which uses over 2000 grey lightsaber blades:
