A long time ago(about thirty years.) In my moms basement. I tried with much dissatisfaction to make more or less the ships, cars, and locations that follow. At the time mom wouldn't buy the Legos I wanted and Lego wouldn't give them to me, at least they never returned my letters. So working with a limited selection my attempts became less and less frequent until eventually they weren't even attempted. Then fate smiled I had a son, and Lego made a Landspeeder, and so on, and so on ....Buying and building, my childhood dream revived. My son however, was having trouble playing. To big for his four year old hands, to fragile for his dexterity. He was constantly asking me to fix a cockpit or a wing or a something. So I decided to remake things more to his size. The first thing was to make them fit his hands so he could carry more than one (makes for better battles with one in each hand.) Next to make them sturdier(there are more pieces then a comparable size Lego set.) Lastly to get figures in and out easily, I removed the cockpits, windows, and such,(it also helps me control relative size from ship to ship or car to car.) I liked the results of the first couple and my son thought they were easy to play with. So I am still building and he is still playing. This all lead into carving my own heads, working with sculpey and making minifigs to get more people. These are the results. Please take a look, comment or critique, I'm going to build.
