We're halfway through our Star Wars LEGO calendar!

Today, we faced a challenge.

We knew what we were supposed to make -- a snow speeder! -- but the instructions were, well, cryptic.

With the help of some ingenuity and the interwebs, we succeeded.

Bunny's take via Wookieepedia: "The T-47 was an atmospheric vehicle designed for industrial cargo handling. Its cockpit featured positions for a forward-facing pilot and a rear-facing cargo manager. The cargo manager used the airspeeder's magnetic harpoon and tow cable to control repulsorlift cargo modules.

As made famous in ESB during the Battle of Hoth, the airspeeder (aka snowspeeder) was our earlier LEGO friend Dak Ralter's vehicle of choice.  Now that the model is finally put together (no thanks to the cheap instructions on the flap of the box), it's actually a relatively accurate snowspeeder:

4 out of 5 for the ship
2 out of 5 for the instructions."

Also, Dack Ralter has a complaint to make about the scale ratio of this particular snow speeder.

RATING: 3 of 5 parsecs!
