    [MOC] Firefly class Serenity

    Firefly class Serenity by Chris Yee, on Flickr "You can't take the sky from me." Built this wee microscale (About 1:1000) ship for fun some months back, mainly because of the new (new to me anyway) cupcake top elements. Photo taken by Legonardo Davidy, since I gave it to him at the end of the Christchurch Brick Show before I remembered to take a photo of it. Enjoy Chris

    Smaug the Terrible

    The funny thing is is that neither the Astronaut or Smaug photos were taken by me. Besides, I always credit the photographer in my descriptions. :)

    Smaug the Terrible

    The weekend was pretty busy so this is currently the best shot available. The remaining part of the neck isn't particularly interesting in my opinion, since I focused heavily on the head portion. Reminds me of something Legonardo said some days before the show in PM: I laughed a good few minutes on that. I may eventually make a full version of Smaug, though the scale will be a great deal smaller, else I might be looking at something around 10ft/3m long, with a wingspan just as wide lol

    Smaug the Terrible

    Smaug the Terrible by Chris Yee, on Flickr Smaug the Terrible, Chiefest of Calamities and the one of the main antagonists in "The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug". With the many references available, I had chosen to focus heavily on the facial features to capture the menacing personality of the fire drake. The creation had taken about 6 months of planning, purchasing and research followed by 200+ hours of production building with over 10,000 parts (excluding the gold pile), ready for the Christchurch Brick Show 2016, held over the 16-17 July weekend. This was my first foray into organic building using bricks as I've been working with Bionicle and Technic based systems for many years, so this end result I am quite pleased with. Initially Smaug was to stand about 70cm in height, 60cm in length and about 40cm wide. Due to a structural deficiency in the neck construction (the night before the show setup, I might add), the majority of the neck was cast aside to have the head and first few neck segments laying atop of my entire collection of gold elements, which took up 2x 2 litre containers. Many thanks to Legonardo for helping replenish my gold stores, WIP feedback, and for the great photo of the creation. Smaug is currently on its way to Wellington where it will be displayed in other various exhibits and events in the months to come. Enjoy Chris
