Miniland Snowmobile
Miniland snowmobile built for building contest.
About this creation
This Miniland-scale snowmobile was built for Palikkatakomo's mid-sized winter building contest. It is not modelled after any specific brand or snowmobile but more like combination of all the different snowmobile pictures that I found online. The driver's overall is made after very common blue-black overall that you can always see tourists using during holiday season in my hometown, Rovaniemi.

I am not sure where I get the idea of actually making miniland-scale snowmobile but for some reason, I just thought about using those hinge plates on miniland figures legs to allow the legs to be spread nicely. I tried that technique in LDD and started building the saddle of the snowmobile from there. Quickly I made up my mind about making snowmobile and after 3-4 hours of desinging in LDD, the creation was in prototype version. Next day I built it from actual bricks (and fixed some problems) but after seeing the prototype's colorscheme in real form, in the next day I recolored it first in LDD and then with actual bricks. Finally, I made the 16x16 stud platform to give the creation some background. I also tried bulding out some tracks to the snow, an effect that I think works nicely and which might work well in larger creation.

Pictures are also available in Flickr and Brickshelf. I also added LDD file here so you can check it out more closely. Notice that the LDD file only has the snowmobile and driver, nothing else.

Quoting TF Twitch Very nice. The rider looks like a SPARTAN super soldier from Halo. Don't you know that SPARTANs don't need no snowmobile? They put a grenade in the ice, ride one of the flying pieces, and assault the enemy! But seriously now, great build and it looks excellent.
Halo outfit was not intended. Blue & black outfit came from similar "safari overalls" and the helmet was done after motocross helmet. I thought about making the helmet more rounded and elaborated but in the end, simplicity won me over.
