Lego variable fighter (GERWALK mode)

The Lego variable fighter made from the Future Flyers set was a good first step but was a little puny for my liking.  A friend had given me The Phantom as a birthday present and that was full of white and orange spaceship parts.

After breaking The Phantom down the new pile of bits were used to build out the variable fighter to something more substantial and with better form.

A bit later I picked up a seaplane set to add a few extra details to improve the look.  (Unfortunately when I came back to photograph this it had lost one of its tail appendages.)

The Lego Future flyers set comes with instructions to build as a plane or a robot.  Looking at it my immediate thought was that would provide a suitable base for building a variable fighter in GERWALK mode.

First off I built both the fighter and the robot from the instructions to see what parts they used and any sections I could incorporate into my model.

With them torn down I set about building the fighter.  It came out pretty well, the basic form is there but somewhat lacking in finesse.
