I got a couple of sets for Saturnalia, including the lone ranger stagecoach and a red pickup truck. After immediately tossing the instructions and cannibalizing the sets for parts to upgrade already existing models, I began looking for ways to use the new pieces. This is one result I got using only pieces from these sets:
Image
After messing around for a bit, I came up with the inspiration to build a steampunk fighter. Here it is with the wings folded down.
Image
It can carry a pilot and a passenger, and also has clips to hold gear. The plane is powered by two rocket engines. The tail fin can move up, down, left and right.
Image
Here is the plane with the wings unfolded. It has a a swiveling Gatling gun in the nose, as well as two heavier, but relatively fixed guns on the wings.

Nice, but the front Gatling looks a bit flimsy. Might want to move it.

That steampunk fighter makes me want to build a bunch of WWI planes and have a dogfight. Good job.

Just going to preface this by saying I'm not a gun person at all, but god damn I love the look of old double barrel shoutguns.

Image
The whip is supposed to be turned around and bent into the little dark grey part sticking out the bottom, and the loose slope piece is supposed to go somewhere inside for stability. However, LDD has its limits, so they're just sitting there for now. Also just realised I forgot to add a trigger, lol.

Image
Featuring working barrel break action!

A few parts aren't available in those colours (whip, long curved slope on stock, little dark grey piece the whip sticks into), but otherwise it's buildable. Also if this were to be built IRL, it would need a nice display stand to be 100% good.

Finally, the prophecies are coming true. Why bother with microspace when you can have an actual gun decimating ships?

That is brilliant. I love how you managed to give it the switch to change barrells.

The two black ones would fit together IRL, but LDD weirdness strikes again.
Image
Image
These are all a bit too big for minifigs, so they'd be better as weapons for hardsuits/very small mecha. Besides, the angled handles make them hard to grip without properly articulated elbows.
Image
Image
These on the other hand, are a good size for mounted weapons for minifigs.


Also, a big astronaut suit.

Testing out my camera with some sample pictures for a future army. This is just one of them, but is more than likely going to be one of my Heros.
