    Interesting. I was playing with ideas here, but good to know it does resemble an actual creature I had never heard of before.

    Thnx. The body is also supposed to be elongated, but as an alternate build you are restricted to the parts available and this was as far as I could take it. It still looks convincing enough.

    Thnx. While most of the builds in this set look a bit out-dated, they contain a lot of creative building techniques and with the abundance of parts there is a lot of freedom to build something new. Some parts are a bit unusual but I used those to approach my designs in way I hadn't done before.

    Thnx. It took some time before I decided to have a go at trying alternates with this set. The first few models were okay but after that things started to improve and my opinion changed. It is just about finding the right approach and getting to know the parts. I already have a bunch ready for the next batch and it doesn't seem inspiration is failing yet.

    That time doesn't include building the model in the LDD which can be 15-45 minutes depending on the size. I haven't kept track of the exact time but it is a rare thing for me to spend several hours on just constructing an alternate model.
    It is impressive how many here spend time on wonderful instructions and pictures, but I build Lego models to spend less time in front of a monitor, not more, so I won't go further than that.
