This model was the product of two days of searching through old lego boxes due to my determination to use a manta in an apocalypse game without paying for a FW one. I posted this in the strangest proxied model thread but after looking at it again I saw that I'd posted an old + not to scale one I made before this one. This ones a bit more colour coordinated than the original and obviously more to scale. Hope you enjoy :)



The only thing I'm not really happy with is the wings as I can't find any curvy bits to resemble the curve of the real manta.

Unfortunately I dropped this while moving it, so it's now lying in big chunks ready to be refitted when I'm bored enough.

Ummm.... I'm not sure what to say. But nice creativity, and way to avoid paying retail!

The first one I did took me about 3 days( quite a few hours every day) to make as I kept changing the bits to use and had to find them in the first place. When I went back to remodel it, I knew what to use so it only took a day to rustle through four boxes of lego and lay them out and then about 6 hours the next day to fit together.

Very nicely done.. maybe you can use the large long wings on the sides to make it curve a bit. the 30 degree ones, compared to 45 degre ones at the middle... that should give it a bit of a curvy shape.

+rep for awesomeness.
