LEGO Fortnite Glider – DIY

LEGO Fortnite Glider – DIY


hey guys it seems like everybody’s
playing Fortnite at the moment and I was looking for some Lego fortnite
stuff and of course there isn’t any because the fortnite franchise is not
something that Lego is probably likely to start anytime soon it’s more suited
to the Mega Bloks brand and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see something like
that come out in a Mega Bloks set very soon and until the end we can try to
make our own Lego Fortnite equipment so one of the things you’ll need when
you’re playing a Lego Fortnite is a Lego Fortnite glider now this one here
is as best I could come up with with the pieces that I had now you see the top
here is not quite connecting and that’s because we’re just using these angles
here I just wanted to create some sort of a canopy sort of feel and I also
didn’t have enough pieces so I had to use this aqua blue which isn’t fantastic
but overall I think it turned out okay I was pretty happy with this mechanism
here the canopy is something that just couldn’t figure out with the pieces that
I had and Lego don’t really come to the party with good pieces for canopies like
parachutes so do you want to see how to build this Lego Fortnite glider well
let’s do this okay so these are the pieces you’ll need to build the Lego
Fortnite glider frame I’m just using one of these small ladders here and
we’re using a lot of these robot arm pieces or skeleton pieces I guess and
we’re just going to start by putting two over here like that and we just use one
of these bars and we’ll just connect them up like that so that’s the edge of
the glider and going to go ahead and do that to the other side too and pop the
bar on like that so that just creates a basic frame here
and I think I like that even though that’s not covered in it still looks
pretty cool now we’re going to go ahead and put in a holder so the minifigure
can hold on to the glider so we’re just using these robot arms again and we’re
just going to use a couple of these pneumatic tee pieces and just gonna pop
that one on there like that and that one on there like that whoops
I’ll take that off and to pop that on like that so as you can see that’s sort
of like pretty cool handles if you had them in different colors that would be
awesome as well because in game it’s a little bit different than grey but as
you see we can just tilt the minifigs hair and so there are in words like that
and now he’s holding onto the frame which is pretty cool so now we’re going
to attach the canopy we’re going to use these little spanners here and pop them
on like that okay so we’ve got four spanners and then we’re going to use
these half bushes now they’re just kind of pop on like that you know it’s not
the best of Lego fit but they’ll stay on and that’s the main thing now the reason
why we want these is so we can then attach this to some real LEGO pieces so
let’s go ahead and do the canopy okay so these are the pieces we’ll need for the
canopy it’s a two by six and we’re just going to put a 1 by 4 and a 1 by 2 here
like that and then we’re going to use one of these curved pieces here now if
you don’t have the 4 version you could just find four of these 1 by versions
and use them instead but I do have a 4 by here so I’m going to use that for now
now I’m just going to put a couple of these little wedges on here like that we’re just trying to build up the angle
of the canopy and then go ahead and use one of these two by looks like a half
curve and that’s just going to sit up there like that so that just gives us a
little bit of a canopy sort of profile and then we’re going to use these 1 by 2
jumpers and they’re just going to sit in about
they’re so just towards the end but not quite so we’ll go ahead and make another
one of those now as I said I didn’t have enough of the blue pieces the dark blue
so I just used a couple of these just to show you how it works
now these are the two canopy pieces and now we go ahead and get our frame and
they actually just click in here like that so that’s it’s in and that’s
actually quite solid now we have to go ahead and put the other side in and
again it just sits in like that and should just sit in like that all right
so that’s our two pieces of the canopy and they join together and make a canopy
for the Lego Fortnite Glider so what do you think of this idea do you think
it actually worked out okay can you come up with a better idea for the canopy I
thought about just using a plain plate but the dimensions didn’t really work
out the way I thought but it’s still pretty cool for your Lego fortnight
character to glide in to the game so if you like this idea please like and
