Classic Space Patrol Scooter

Oct 31, 2000

This model was built for Todd Lehman’s Classic Space Building Contest. It is a category 1 polybag ship, with 24 pieces. It wasn’t modeled after anything in particular, just me staring at a pile of bricks until something cool decides to appear.

The Patrol Scooter was built within the span of an evening while handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. It includes 3 alternate models: A jetpowered glider, a freestyle skier, and an antiaircraft gun. Let me tell you, it’s real tough to come up with creative alternates that don’t look almost identical when you’re so limited with pieces. You really have to expand your mind.
