The Crusader – Spaceship+Mech

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!

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?
