A smaller version of the LMS Explorer from Lego Rock Raiders.
About this creation
This is my latest creation. It has some flaws, but it was sometimes very hard to find the right pieces etc. Otherwise I chose this scale, because it was a challenge to build a smaller version which contains lot of details too (It's also part of my LMS Explorer Cuusoo project: LINK ).
Length: 118 studs/ almost 1 metre
pieces: 5320 (aargh, so many small pieces^^)
building time: hmm, maybe 30 to 50 hours
scale: not exactly 1:8 but very close to it (~1:8,25) (compared to my 1:1 scale version of the LMS Explorer, which is 975 studs long)
construction program: LDD
The building instructions are from version 1.2, which differs a bit from the original version (e.g. reduced piece count, slightly different appearance), but otherwise it's the same thing.
Today I released the building instructions for version 1.2. In comparison to the 1:16 model there is probably still room for improvement, because the 1:8 version is more complex, but I think, that's okay.
