The sarlacc Model Contest - Alternate Separatist Shuttle Model
Update 3/7: Some rules are clarified below.The Requirements:
You must own one (1) copy of 8036 Separatist Shuttle. Build an alternate model using elements only from this set. The use of stickers is left to your own discretion. You may use as many or as few pieces from the set as you wish. Your sarlacc Model must be minifig scale and fit a pilot. The pilot can be any of the minifigs from the set. Your alternate model must be a flying vessel, i.e. an airship or a starship. Open canopy designs are okay usa. You may only submit one model. If you have leftover pieces that you can build something with, hooray! But you can't submit the second model as part of your entry.The Twist:
The one thing that 8036 is lacking is a proper canopy piece. You may add one and only one windscreen of your choice. The windscreen may be any official LEGO element that is in a transparent color. Trans-clear, trans-black, trans-yellow, it's completely up to you. The additional canopy piece is a requirement to the build.How to Enter:
Submit a photo of your sarlacc Model to both the FBTB: flickr Outpost pool
and as a reply to this thread. In flickr, your photo must be tagged with "sarlacc Model", with quotes, to be eligible. You may submit as many photos as you wish to the flickr pool, but only one photo in your reply to this thread. No photoshopped special effects will be allowed for your entry. Image alteration is limited to image correction only, i.e. color balance, brightness/contrast, levels, etc. You may remove the background in order to isolate your model. Submission Deadline:
