FBTB Contest Entry: The Spinsoar
Posted 29 August 2010 - 11:13 AM
I've made a lot of average MOC's in the past and haven't been satisfied with any of them and then I saw the FBTB Contest opportunity and thought I need to build one awesome ship to make my mark.
So I present to you my most worked (and expensive) MOC yet:
No great person wants to seem Ruth-less so that's why they hire him
Known to strike fear into anyone who beholds it. Heavily armed and armored. Once you find out your on Ruth's list you've already been hunted.
The holding cell
I apologize for the bad quality photo, it was very difficult to photograph and that was the best I could do, but will try again later
Well I looked at ships in the Star Wars universe and tried to find a common theme within them. Noting that many vehicles were inspired through animals eg. Slave I - Elephant, Snail tank - Snail, Seperatist Shuttle - Beetle.
So I thought to myself how about a Stegosaurus (the dinosaur) and started creating the fin things on top.
The two wings of my Spinosoar were originally going to be the largest fins of the Stegosaurus idea until I found I would not have the ability to build such a thing.
Finding the right combination I managed to incorporate some of the fins I made and make it resemble a dinosaur.
I also wanted to make my Hunter and Ship relate and resemble each other which I think I achieved quite well.
All in all Im happy with the build but will update photos later as my Bricklink order would not arrive in time.
The most challenging part for me was designing the different sized fins.
I will update photos later once my Bricklink order arrives as it would not arrive in time.
Did I redeem myself?
Does the ship go with the hunter and resemble my inspiration?
I would appreciate your feedback.
