Well, I built this for a contest over on MOCpages, but rest assured, it far exceeds the level of most MOCs on that site. :wink:

I am aware that the STAP should be all brown, but the piece I used for the front of the engines is only available (as far as I know :blush:) in gray. I decided, since it was the perfect shape, to use it and then make the 'wings' gray also. Overall, I like the effect, which offsets the use of gray pieces in the body. Besides, according to the Episode 1 Vehicles book, the Trade Federation used cheap paints and sealants on their vehicles, which is why many of the vehicles in Episode 1 were already 'battle damaged' and scorched. We can say the same for this model. :sweet:

Finished in May 2010, see more on MOCpages.
C&C welcome.

Great MOC Brickdoctor!
If it was all brown alot of the details would vanisgh into the model.
I like that it is not all brown. And battledamaged, it works as well.
The droid it self is very well done as well.
Good luck in the competition!

That's a very nice MOC, Brickdoctor!

If you plan on modifying anything, I would suggest trying to add fingers on the droid though.

Sorry, don't see that happening at that scale.

Like I said, I like the effect and it accents the MOC well.

I love how you did the battle droid and STAP on that scale, nice work brickdoctor! Your MOC is one of the most original I have seen lately since I rarely see MOCs of that scale.

Probably the main reason behind this MOC. I'm addicted to small vehicles (AT-RTs, 74-Zs, BARCs, and the like), but I wanted an original twist for the competition I was in. (suffice it to say that I would have been annihilated by the opposition had I chosen to build a minifig-scale STAP. :tongue:

This is brilliant! The brick-built droid looks very cool (I love the use of a droid torso for the neck!), and the STAP is nice and sleek! :oh:

Did you ever think of also making a tactical droid? The body looks like it would work quite well.  :thumbup:

By the way, what does all of the Aurebesh on the pictures say? I don't want to look it all up. :grin:
