Thanks, Fred, for your comments. I would love some suggestions for different propellers to use. I don't have any other propellers in my own collection, but if I knew what set to look for, I might be able to replace the red one. Since I want to expand and add to this MOC, if you know of something specific to suggest, please tell me!
Are we allowed to hot link to BL (images link to BL catalog)?
Maybe one of these:
No housing, but you'd use:
To connect to a lift-arm or something:
Or this might look nicer:
You would have to put pins or something in the ends of that last one to hold it in place, but then either the one you have now is being held by something or it's just loose (which is fine, by me).
It might look better to me if the one you were using was simply a different color.... I think my problem with it is that your eye is just drawn to it immediately because it really sticks out, while I think you'd want it to be a lot more subtle so that people concentrated more on the rest of the MOC, which is superb.
EDIT: In fact, now that I think about it, if you used the same kind of housing, but with a different color (
white or green, maybe
actually black would match your building), and that propeller that I linked to with the pin that I linked to, I think it would make the fan a lot more subtle. If I could I would build on in LDD and post a picture, or build a real one (I have the parts at home) and post a picture.
