StarWars Darkside Pod racer

This model is awesome in so many ways. For one, there's the large amounts of pearl gray used in it. It's not too easy to see in the Brickshelf gallery, but the flickr link above gives you a better look. You can see a picture closer to true color here. The second big shocking thing here is the jets on the front - they're NOT the large turbine piece - they're from a DUPLO plane set. Behind that, the engines have lots of great rare-color greebling bits and large wheels to hold thing together - until you hit the rear, which is all Bionicle parts. Oh, and it's actually a pod racer that looks like it'd be right at home in the first three Star Wars episodes too.

You might also remember this builder for his awesome Dalek model that I featured in June.
This is Saturday's model of the day.
