SisShuttle BFF: Airstrip

SisShuttle BFF, a minidoll scale SHIP.


Happy SHIPtember!


This is a build to inspire everyone building SHIPs this month. I'm too slow to complete something in just 1 month, but hopefully this is worth kicking off the contest in style.


Length: ~108 studs

Wingspan: ~108 studs

100% authentic Lego elements and decals, no painted parts.


Build: Jun 26 - Aug 26, 200-240 hours

Photography: Aug 27 - Aug 31


Join Olivia and her friends as she teams up with Emily Jones and her elves to build and fly a mission on the SisShuttle BFF!


I've created a Comic in an album that shows off all the play features and all the characters.


Main features:

- Highly detailed main engines

- The tail opens as a cargo plane

- The top area opens like a space shuttle

- All the minidolls seat properly in the cabin, as well as most of the Friends' pets.

- Mech and L.U.V.

- PartyBombs under each wing

- Drones on top of each wing

- Awesome turbines for atmospheric flight drill through the air

- Loading ramp and runway


Build techniques:

- Sandwiching two airplane wings for a lot of strength

- System build in front, brickbuilt cargo area, technic panel technique on the rear.

- Clip and post technique for the main engines

- Unscrewed the aircraft tail piece and made it functional as a cargo ramp. (Difficult!)

- There's more but I give up.
