Hi, Liam here! I’m so excited to kick off our Brik Bros Reboot, a series of short posts highlighting some of our coolest designs!
Today I’m sharing the Crusader, a spaceship I’ve been working on for a few months. The cool thing about it is that it not only flies, but it can also walk! I tried to use click joint pieces to create the leg movement, but they were too limiting, so in the end I used only half of a click joint for each leg.
I hope these pictures inspire you to create your own sci-fi designs!
The ship from the front
The back of the ship – the rockets become missiles after it transforms
The ship from the side
The ship before it begins transformation
First the legs split apart,
Then the feet rotate,
And finally it stands up.

This model really proves that something is not always what it seems! Have you ever built a model that has a hidden feature?
