And what are "greebles" and "WIPs" ... i think i know what they are, but i'm not sure if i'm right ... can someone let me know if i'm right (or wrong) ... and can somebody provide a short definition for those two words if i'm wrong ?
So, i'm just guessing here, but is this what they are ? ...
"Greebles" ... very cool and intricate details ?
"WIPs" ... unfinished and (or) abandoned mocs that were (or are about to be) scrapped ? Permalink
WIP = [W]ork [I]n [P]rogress. The abreviation is used almost everywhere and is supposed to let the audience know that what they see is a general preview of an unfinished product / model / artwork.
As to "greeble" (a.k.a. grib), that's a term used for the more sophisticated mechanical elements of MOCs. There may be just a hint of them or they may actually be 100% functioning, but in any case those definitely bring life to any MOC out there. And are an area in which I need A LOT of improvement... ;]
Vignettes are small scenes which are supposed to be funny or interesting, however in a more intriguing way. Guess you could say that a vig is pretty much like a snapshot worth millions which should go on and qualify for "This year's best photographs". Just have a look at the "Vignettes" group and you'll see what I mean. ;]
Dioramas are often larger scenes or depict massive events - such as Star Wars fights, town areas & their inhabitants etc.

i guess that might sound like a funny question, but when i saw ur username ... it made me think of 2 otters swimming in a stream with eartags marked "A" and "B"
In that case, you got it right, Darren :))) We're using this account together with my girlfriend, since most of the time we build our MOCs together anyway (apart from the bikes & cars, she's into that :P), and that Otter thing has been a running joke for us for ages, although we're not really called that way. as for A & B - it's just the first letters of our names (how convenient, right?) :D But I must say, living by a stream with some otters nearby sounds lovely! I will look into that once I've saved up more money for a new home :))) Permalink
