Steam A-wing

16 posts in this topic

Hello!

The contest on FBTB has prompted me to build my first ever steampunk creation; a steam A-wing.

Probably not of winning quality, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Comments and criticisms are welcome, please let me know what you think. :-)

That looks really good, I do love a good bit of steampunk. The engine block looks great as already mentioned it has a very good level of detail, one question though is there any lift provided from the underside?

I'll move that to the TAWY forum ;-)

Whoops, sorry about that. Thanks for moving it, and for the comment.

My only critisism is that all of those 1x4 brown tiles make it look a tad bit plain.

Thanks for the comment. I agree that it does look a bit plain in the front. I would have liked to add in a few grill pieces and such, but because of the way it's put together, I could only use 1 x 4s.

I'm not sure if I understand your question. There are some propellors on the bottom of the ship. Would they provide any lift? I would think so, but don't really know.

Thanks everyone for the comments!

I actually already did enter, and it made it into the voting round. [link]

If you like my creation, I'd really appreciate your vote. But vote for the one you like... I personally think most of the final creations are better than mine. I'm pretty glad I made it at all.

As others have said, the engines look great. The use of all the tiles don't have quite a steampunk feel to me (hey I'm no expert just a guy giving his thoughts). They seem to look a bit like a rickety wooden plank bridge. But hey keep up the steampunk MOCing, they're my favourite type of MOCs.
