Is this Anakin’s Y wing Starfighter in Micro Scale?
Day 21 of the 2014 Star Wars Advent Calendar
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.
