Jinrick-Shaw

15 posts in this topic

This jinrick-shaw seems to be first appeared in Star Wars Movie (ep2) while Anakin and Padme arrived Tatootine, then they took a "land-transport" of something like jinrick-shaw ...pull by a droid.

Here this is my try on building this "land transport" - jinrick-shaw

But actually I don't know what is its correct name... :tongue:

I guess a few minute show of this vehicle was enough for two mocs to be made.

Although I prefer the droid in your version, the "cart" is supposed to 2-person, and looks gap filled, if your MOC is what I think it is.

This is sweet.

Also love your BS creations. Animated catapult gif is very impressive!

Very nice MOC indeed, state-of-the-art again :thumbup:

Wether or not the car is supposed to carry 2 persons is in my opinion irrelevant, thats up to the designer. I like the model very much, it's accurate. And I dont really understand what is ment by "looks gap filled", could you explain jiffel?

Agreed.

That's the freedom each artist (aka MOC'er) has and must have in a contest such as this one.

The pictures are perfect :thumbup: (razorsharp and as requested in the Contest Topic)

In my opinion, the model looks like a framework, with gaps in it. Still, it is very beatuful, just not necessarily accurate, but if you simply describe it as a "lighter, smaller, less expensive version" I wouldn't have a problem. It is a very good MoC, just not quite accurate.

Very nice, I think legoman also made one of these. The droid is very clever, and to scale as far as I can tell. However, despite what others say, I think that adding another seat for Padme would benefit your entry. Other than that, the rickshaw looks great. If you have any cloth that would fit on the canopy of the seat (such as the cloth from a Lego tent), that might look neat.

It looks nice and clean but I fell that something is missing on it.

Yes, both ideas would improve it for sure, IMO.

Again, a good MoC!

Now I know the name, thanks

Sorry I didn't notice you did one...

This vehicle came to my mind at once after I read KimT contest rule...and I tried quite a bit of time testing to find the possible constructions. Finally I chose this one...because the size/scale seems to be closer

Sorry again.

The pictures are perfect :thumbup: (razorsharp and as requested in the Contest Topic)

Thanks KimT~~

My pictures always be sharp because I photo 5 times for one angle shot...and then choose from them...

Takes time but also save time, because I don't need to set up and pull my camera out again... :tongue:

For the rest of you, thanks

But I wonder "Can we critize on contest candidate's work?" <--this sounds weird to me if "yes".

Anyway Thanks~~

No problem... :classic: (It's funny, as soon as i saw what the contest was i also instantly thought of this... :grin: )

But just so you know, i am modifiying my droid, So please don't kill me if you think it looks like your's :tongue: (i was moding it before i saw your's :wink: )

I like! but one minor detail, can't you remove the 1x1 flat brich at the bottom of the droid? I know it's there for stability, but when he's attached to the thingies, doesn't the droid stand by itself? It just ruins the flow of the picture.
