About this creation
Another pretty fast build, started about 13:00 and finished about 15:30. I'm looking at it now and wondering where I can make improvements.



Obvious change is the position of the neck, the head is fixed because the hinge plate in front of it has been placed too close to the t-bar for it to bend forward in robot mode. Might be able to fix this by reversing the order of the plates forming the chest/nose-cone hinge.



The shoulder "kibble" probably needs another hinge to be able to flatten it out a bit to be more like wings.



The foot design didn't turn out as I planned, I think I need to redesign that to form a better spoiler in vehicle mode.



The rear of the car mode seems a little thin. I'm thinking maybe it should have been wider by one stud width on each side.



What went well? Colours turned out ok, the head is a little simple but has the right shape and the guns look pretty cool. Note that they can attach as shoulder cannons if you prefer.



I did try to adjust the wing design to form a cockpit capable of taking a minifig, but the clearances are fighting me.



General vibe says Mirage, but as with all my "My Own" versions he isn't exactly meant to represent his G1 self. If anything I could maybe have made the vehicle even less like a formula one car to be quite frank.



I had planned to attempt turning this into a few other designs. The list includes:

beast machines mirage
Gobot Renegade Crasher















A HUUUUGE thank you for inspiring this design to Haran Banjo. His design LDD MIRAGE G1 helped me solve some issues with my own design I was having.

As always your comments and ratings are more than welcome. Feel free to let me know what you think, honest feedback is always useful.

I like it. It looks like an F-1 racer and robot mode is cool. I can see the head issue you cited, but other than that, the design looks good.
