Lovely! Minus the front 2x2 tile I see bulging up a bit... I don't really think those tiles are very necessary. Wink

Wow, that's incredible! Even studs look good on this. The only thing I'm not fond of would be the seat, though. It seems a bit sudden and uncomfortable. Perhaps you could smooth the transition with a 2x2x3 brick?

The front nose area looks a bit thick to me but that's about it. Wink Maybe make a big figure to go with it? Smile

I might make a proportionate figure for it. Not sure if I agree about the nose, here's a top view:

It thickens 1.5 studs there, and it fattens up alot on the real thing, what does everybody else think?

It actually looks like you could fit a bionicle figure. Nice!

I think the part for the legs could be thickened a little, and less studs showing would be good, but nice build!

Very impressive build. Thumbs up Never seen one of these in this scale before! I am not a big fan of all the studs, but that's ok. Now try for a figure to fit this scale. Surprised

Keep on Bricklink! Wow this thing looks

Very good, though I'm not into UCS. But the engines are a bit crappy. They somehow make it look a little, eerhm stupid Doh! . But the rest is cool! Especially the seat and the control are Thumbs up . And why is there something sticking out on the front? Is that accurate to the ''real'' BARC speeder?

Thanks for all the replies, the bit at the front is accurate. I've given it some love, and reworked the doming backside, and repulsors. I don't know if I'll try to get rid of some studs-maybe. I'll get cracking on the Big-Fig Wow this thing looks

I've seen your minifig scale BARC's, but this steals the show! There could be less studs, but at this scale, it can slide. Excellent work overall! A toast!

Thanks Knight! Yeah this scale really freed me up from the binding minifig-scale. Here are some updated pics!

I made the back more round and accurate, getting rid of some studs in the process:

I put cheese on my pedals for a more accurate shape:

I also improved the front some:

Yep, you can enter. At the end of the month in the GMA, there is a nomination thread, then we all vote for our favorite. If you win your MOC is on the portal page for the month, so if you won, it would be there all of April. Smile

Clean up some of the studs, work on the nose, and some minor detailing, and you'll have a win for me.
