This is a "product" of my overconfidence, really. Let me explain...
I have been wanting to build a TF from set 31089 (released last year) , assuming it contains many sleek parts , by observing its box art. Only recently I managed to buy this set and discovered that even though many of the parts were good ... it's still lacking adequate numbers of hinges for me to start building a transformable alternate design (not necessarily a robot).
I guess I overestimate myself this time in gauging LEGO sets.
Deciding not to allow this set gone to waste, I spent about a week tinkering around with the parts trying to build something recognizable from pop culture. Finally, this X-wing was born!
This was an "afterthought" after finishing my build, a generic looking space cruiser.
