Looks good. I never minded the BAW for this very reason.

Scorvion Speeder

Q: What do you get when you attach Pod racing engines to a speeder?

A: A long smear in the desert.

So what happens when slightly smaller engines are used? We'll soon find out.

I just finished this speeder using the Montoy Tank head.
I included samples of the 2 drink containers I used for the engines.

Kept on a retainer by Heater, the 108 year old RIC-series droid RIC-837 pulled its rickshaw between Mos Eisley and Anchorhead to service a legitimate luxury cruise run by Jabba's henchmen.

Before Anakin Skywalker built his pod racer, he built a desert skiff out of spare parts he found at Watto's. He zipped around the Tatoonie desert for fun.

Literally scratched built: the vanes are from Ezra's speeder but turned upside down. The seat is from the base plate/shield from the TFA Ezra figure. The engine is from the first series CW Obi Wan jetpack. The 'generator' is the fat part cut from TFA Sacro Plank's gun. The lever to power the generator is from Ezra's speeder, and the control handle is just a loose piece I found. The 'power cable' is from my dearly departed dish washer.

Gave the entire vehicle a dirty/rusty used look.

Here's a vehicle I made for a custom figure I made this morning. It's made of cardboard and parts of a phone and a camera me and my friend took apart yesterday

I'm already seeing an improvement in your creations! Looks great!

Hi. This is my first post. I am fighting to upload pics, so apologies if you see dead links.

My first "mini rig" is a Coruscant Limo. Just some thrown-together found objects used to fill my Coruscant skies.

It is made from an old TPM game shaped like the Naboo starship.

Upside down, the game's shell always looked like a limo front or the animated Batmobile grill.

Here is a repainted (by my friend) scooter from Titan AE. Looked about right for an Ithorian, IMO.

Nothing too spectacular, but it has about the right aesthetic, and squeezes into my diorama.

One more bit of Coruscant traffic that might be small enough to count as a mini rig.

It is just a generic airspeeder. I got jealous of all the different flavors of airspeeder on Clone Wars and Rebels, and wanted to put an old landspeeder to good use. Some upgraded engines; canopy, nee plastic Easter egg; and beef-up repulsors from deoderant containers, and the speeder is ready for CoCo town rush hour.

Those are both pretty Rad. It is amazing how much paint can improve something!

I really like the looks of the repainted Freeco speeder! I think the blacked out cockpit makes it look so much better. The speeder was always a neat design, but I was never a huge fan of the big clear cockpit. Nice blast damage effects on the body too!

All great stuff here this round. I failed to get either of my started projects done. Loving all the vehicles shown here, though. A lot of work put into them!
