I watched 3 seasons of BSG last week, currently watching the 4th... It got me interested in building more civilian type space crafts. :csmini:

Use of Octan: Awesome. I love the use of Octan colors.

This bike is incredibly detailed and looks like one from Battlestar Galactica.


Random Fact: Since Octan is a brand and is copyrighted, LEGO could legally open a gas station and sell gas!

Great one! NPU at the Snowtrooper helmet here!
Check all my creations and more pictures on my flickr.
Oh yeah, and I also make Brickfilms, would be awesome if you dropped in on my YouTube Channel RRPictureProductions! :D

And yet, it also has that Hess truck quality to it. Why would Hess need a space shuttle or jump jet? Why would Octan use a hoverbike to deliver gas?

Just me being confused. :?

I like the connection with the minifig hips and cart wheel base thingy. I never think of those kinds of things.

Thanks, I like to mess around with pieces and try some weird ideas.

It wasn't my intention to confuse you but maybe he could also just be a maintenance guy on his way to an offworld mining rigg. :p :D

Very cool! You're quite good at building hoverbikes, I just tried my hand at it and it seems kinda hard! I built mine around the dirtbike from the Indiana Jones sets. Might post it and see if you (the expert) have any tips.

Also it is going into my new SHIP ;)

The dirtbike was my first hoverbike I build. Love to see your take on it! :)

Yeah, sitting on a big Octan tank and flying open in space, really a thing I'm looking for. Beside all the funny stories I like the details and design. I guess fun to play!

Hey _zenn...

I have seen other bikes by you and I was wondering about one of your techniques...

How do you mount the little wheel rims on the bikes? I need to know how for my attempt at a bike.

Thanks!
