This here, is a Nindroid Jet that I made during Toys R Us’ Bricktober Build & Play event on October 8th. It took me the entire build time at the store, which was from 1pm-3pm, to make it. This was because I have trouble finding the pieces I needed, since, as you can see from the pictures, the pieces were very scrambled up. Also, this is the first pure System MOC that I actually managed to build from scratch and finish.
I originally started with the base of the nose but was only able to get a little bit of it done before I got stuck,
I then managed to continue the body of the jet, by finding some 2x8 plates and using them to hold the 2x4 plates that I used for the base of the jet, but then, when I got closer to the tail, I went ahead and switched the 2x8 plates for some 2x6 and 2x3 bricks to serve as a sort of handle for the jet, similar to how set 9442 Jay’s Storm Fighter has it(which is the set that I used as a frame of reference(although I didn’t actually have the set with me, so I had to go off of memory)), although, i couldn’t find any 2x2 black bricks, so I had to use a 2x2 purple brick so that I managed to stay with the color scheme.
Unfortunately, when I went to get the nose better held together, there were no 2x4 black bricks, and most of the 2x4 bricks there were of the colors that didn’t match the color scheme, so instead of using a 2x3 and a 1x2(which wouldn’t have helped much for the angle plates I had to put on top of it) I went ahead and took the only 4 stud long bricks I could find that matched the color scheme, which were those 2 light stone grey 1x4s.
I then put a couple more 2x6 angle shells on the nose and the tail, but because I was running low on time, I went ahead and grabbed a wind-shield and used that to make the cockpit, which I had to use those Medium Stone Grey Bricks and Plates for, because there were no normal slope pieces aside from the 4 black 1x2 slopes that I put above the wings.
I then took all the black 1x3 plates I could find and put them along the top and bottom edges of the body, to help keep it together, and make sure that the top of the jet was mostly black. After I put that roof piece on the wind-shield and some black 2x4 plates down the middle of the 2x4 Dark Stone Grey bricks, I then took all the Dark Stone Grey 1x4 bows that I could find and put them along the top, to give the jet a more smooth top.
