The Run Around is a long range search and exploration vehicle that is equally capable in high orbital flight as well as atmospheric. The ship is filled with recon and detection equipment and has room in the rear compartment to store up to two stretchers for search and rescue missions. There is an option to add a warp field generator to extend its range to deep space so it can be independently deployed.
This is the first minifig model I have actually completed. Since my building style favors maxi-fig scale trying to put a lot of detail into a model this small was a considerable challenge. While it was a difficult build it only took about 4 days to design and build. Perhaps the hardest part was the wing, I knew I wanted the wing to have some sweep back but the challenge was to seamlessly integrate the wing to the body (i.e. no angled gaps), I think I managed to pull the wing off pretty well.
...a very good job, I love to see when people use a clean edge (instead of slopes) for the leading edge of a wing. It's tough to integrate, but you did pretty well here, I can't think of a way to cover the one little gap without pushing to a larger scale.
The sweeping motion of the ship, or rather the transition of the narrow tail fins to the wide front cockpit, combined with the angled wings, makes a great build. My only problem is the transitioning white plates on the top of the cockpit - they just seem a bit out of the place. Looks like a fish. A cool fish, though.
