Today’s micro build from the 2014 Star Wars Advent calendar is a model of a model.  Most Y-wing fighters are white, but this is yellow, and seems to be a model of Lego set 8037-1.

This micro Y-wing fighter has 19 pieces, and is pretty much what you would expect the build to be – a lot of symmetry between the two sides.  I always used to find it hard to get all the bricks to line up properly when building a 1×1 tower.  Then I realized you just have to put it on a flat surface horizontally and press it down to get everything to line up just right.

The wishbone, or Y-wing fighter, has a sloped 1×1 tile for the canopy, and a round 1×1 brick to simulate a droid right behind the cockpit.

A fun build for Lego Advent.  Not my favorite micro build this year, but not bad either

The only way to get this micro Y wing ship is in the 2014 Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar

This is what the Official Lego website has to say about the 2014 Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar:

Spend the festive period on icy planet Hoth with the LEGO® Star Wars™ Advent Calendar! Open up a door each December day to reveal a cool Star Wars themed gift, including minifigures starships, vehicles and more. Once you have all 24 gifts, unfold the playmat and act out hilarious Hoth-based scenes that everyone in the family will love to watch. This is the perfect holiday gift for LEGO Star Wars fans from any galaxy!

 

The Lego Advent Calendars follow a simple principle, there are 24 different mini sets each hidden behind a numbered door inside the Lego Box.  You don’t open the box like a regular Lego Set, but instead,  the lid is hinged, and the box opens up so that the back of the lid is a printed play-space, and then there are 24 different perforated doors.

Some people like to open each of the 24 sets all at once, but I prefer to open the first set on Dec 1, the 2nd on Dec, and so forth, all the way to Christmas Eve when I open the last one.

I’ve done all the hard work for you, and found the best place to get the 2014 Lego Advent Calendar
