If you remember my Darth’s Angels photo it had 3 custom motorcycles, all of them was a combination of 42036 and 1-2 other Technic sets. As I promised I was preparing the building instructions slowly but surely (bad weather definitely helps), so here is the first one for Darth Vader’s bike:
The inventory can be found on the rebrickable page:
I’d like to share with you my biggest project so far – Darth’s Angels. I had the idea to create custom motorcycles for the Star Wars buildable figures ever since my son got his first set. As I realized the Stormtrooper fits perfectly on the 42036 Street Motorcycle, especially on the B model. That was the first step, and after a few weeks of building, refining and constructing the photo scene finally I managed to create the shot I imagined:
For this Lava shot I had to collect around ~6000 round plates and pins 🙂 I’ll share a separate post about the techniques used for the photo because it was quite a nice challenge 🙂
Three custom motorcycles were created for Darth Vader and the two Stormtroopers. I wanted to add an extra twist to the build so all of the motorcycles are using pieces only from specific sets.
Darth Vader’s bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42050 Drag Racer
First Stormtrooper bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42039 24 Hours Race Car
Second Stormtrooper bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42045 Hydroplane Racer + 42047 Police Interceptor
