Table Scrap Tiny Fighters

Labelled as table scraps by the builder (which is quite ironic, considering that there are several kitchen utensils used here), David Zambito used some brand new collectible minifigure accessories to good use. David used the new dark blue food trays as the panels for the iconic TIE fighter vehicle. With perhaps a recoloring of these pieces in black in the future, and maybe some custom sticker work, these would work incredibly well for microscale TIE fighter building. The other use, which is my favorite, is the at the very end of the Y-wing. Those are the new wisk accessories, which work so very well to cap off a little rebel starfighter. Simplicity is not always a bad thing, as demonstrated here. All you need is your creativity.

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
