Galaxy Patroller
Here is my first ever picture of a LEGO creation that I have built. I did others before this one but I also did not have a lot of pieces to choose from at this partiuclar time in my life (about 1999 or 2000), and I did not have a computer or access to the internet and I knew nothing about color schemes, SNOT and non-SNOT techniques and the like. I merely built it because I thought that, at the time, it looked cool (though, like you all know now, it looks just plain hideous). Please comment and I will respond in kind.

Yup, good times, Locutus 666, good times.

Quoting erdelyi balazs Nice work---I have to say that building ships like this without having a huge number of official sets is the real skill of lego building---when I got my first sets (3-4 years old I was) I built a lot of spaceships like this. So keep it up and if you accept an advice try to buy some Star Wars sets--then with the growing number of lego parts you can improve your skills (and try to take better quality photos).=)
I might just take you up on that offer, Erdeyli. However, along with some LEGO Star Wars sets, I'd like to get some old-school LEGO Space sets, some new-school LEGO Space sets (Space Police III, anyone?), and I might even get some of those LEGO Creator sets for good measure. As for you show of support, thank you.

Quoting Parrington Levens Pretty cool craft, I like the shape and the piggy backed shuttle. Obviously the colors are out of sinc but we don't all have the luxury of thousands of pieces. P.S welcome to the G.A.I.A group.
Thanks, Parrington and if you look closer, you'll see that there are TWO piggy backed shuttles on the Galaxy Patroller. One is in the front and the other one is in the back. Also, they are smaller fighters and not shuttles.

Quoting Commando Heero who cares if this is multi-colored? IMHO (in my humble opinion) a lego creation should look good, but if it is out of the question to get it to look unifom, you shuold focus on functionality. for example, I made a TX-130 tank awile back. it look like someone had put twenty paint jobs on it and the layers were peeling off from the craft. then, my little brother (rusty s.) and a friend took it and changed it from rainbow to republic in about a week. these things take time and from the looks of it, you are doing just fine with what you have, so keep up the great work! (also, i have almost no comments, could you help with that?)
I sure can help you out with your lack of comments, Commander Heero.

Quoting Evan Melick Albeit it is rainbow, but I understand why, so no hard feelings there. The shape is good, and overall, I just like it, the rainbow doesn't bother me much. Keep it up, and thanks for the fave! Also, if your short on cash, try BrickLink! You can get tons of pieces you need for a relatively low price.
Uh, Evan, I tried to use BrickLink and, part for part, it is even more expensive to buy from there than even with the LEGO sets at LEGOLAND. I thought like you once but then the cold hard fist of reality hit me in the face when I visited their website. In short, until I get a job, I can not expand my LEGO collection and creation capabilities in any form or function.

Quoting Mithryl Dlarix My creations were all multicolored for like my first 10 years of building. Gradually I got enough parts in certain colors that I was able to make unified looking things. Nonetheless, this is really looking great. Love the use of the green canopies.
Thanks, Mithryl. However, in order for me to get out of this whole "Rainbow Warrior" theme, I need a few things in my life. These things are: 1. Lots of money. 2. Lots of haggling. 3. Lots of good deals on Craigslist. 4. Lots of LEGO to build with in the first place. 5. Lots of the right kinds of LEGO parts in addition to lots of LEGO parts in general. 6. Lots of space to make the LEGO MOCs 7. Lots of space in order to store the LEGO when I am done with them. Until I can meet all of these goals, I will not be able to make as good of LEGO creations as I want in my life. One day, I plan on making massive LEGO capital ships that are quite literally thousands of studs long and that also have lots of smaller LEGO vehicles and even smaller LEGO vehicles and that also has a crew of thousands of LEGO minifigures, too. It is not enough for me to one-up people like Mladen Pejic that put me down in the past, oh no, I want to make the best LEGO capital space craft that has ever been built in LEGO minifigure scale. That, ultimately, is my goal, Mithryl. I wish to become the best LEGO builder of all time.

Quoting Will Burrell i love your design for it...however...if you could possibly get more rounded windshields to work with it, and then build it in a good, solid color pattern, then it would be an absolutely gorgeous ship.
Will, as much as your comments make as much sense to me now, back when I had made this particular creation, it was around 1999 or 2000, so a lot of those new curved pieces simply did not exist then or they were on the new and expensive sets that I could not afford to buy at the time. Also, my LEGO collection was considerably smaller than it it now, so I had no choice in the matter.

I almost did buy some LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Indiana Jones sets today at the local Wal-Mart but they are so expensive...:( Oh well, there is always Craigslist....^_^ As for the picture, it was taken around 1999 or 2000 and digital cameras were VERY expensive (if they even existed at all) back then and most PCs were not even equipped to handle them, too. Such was the case with my computer at that time, too.

Quoting Cody G nice build! the colors could use some work, but like you said, ebay is brutal when it comes to buying legos. I bought a few pounds a while ago, and it took me like ten tries just to win a bid that was barely a good deal.
...and that, Cody G, is precisely why I will possibly not be making SNOT and greebled MOCs for some time to come, that, and I have to get used to having my own style first on here. Besides, I kind of prefer more simplistic LEGO creations and I kind of miss the old LEGO Space themes myself (though I only consider Classic Space/Futuron as merely good places to get some spare LEGO Space parts). Also, you do have to start kind of simple now, do you not, sir? When I can do more with my LEGO collection and get some truly greebly parts to my LEGO collection, not to mention the parts that are necessary for a SNOT creation, then and only then will I even consider pulling off more professional looking creations on the MOC Pages and elsewhere.

Thanks for the positive feedback, Crismo. Yes, I do plan on making another one in the future but eBay is not so kind to me...:(

Quoting J-MAN N I like this. It's big but doesn't look to bulky or clumsy. Is that like a little fighter on the top?
No. Actually there are two fighters that are on top, not one. The first fighter is up towards the front and the second one is towards the back.

Quoting Space Pirate so that is the 'rainbow warrior' look you mentioned in the group? yeah, indeed, you should try to avoid too many colours on a single MOC ;) just start with something smaller if you lack the parts ;) just browse through this site to find inspiration (some may call it 'stealing ideas') :) and it looks like you mostly use older parts? do you have any recent LEGO sets? I like the older parts as well, and still use them quite frequently, but recent parts give you much more opportunities ;)
My family has never been rich, so I always had to buy what I could in bulk or buy it at the flea market (another good place to get LEGO on occasion, too, by the way). Besides, some of the sets that I really want cost between $90 to $130 where they would have only cost about half of that were they released back in the day. Also, good luck trying to get one of those 1,600 LEGO piece tubs in the USA at your local Wal-Mart....if they only sold those for about $25 or so, then I would be happy.

Thanks for the support and yes, I do plan on making this over but I am also going to need some more changes to it, such as primitive sleeping quarters, maybe an automatic food dispenser, a bathroom and shower, a color scheme change (obviously), a new big black wing (because the other one was lost due to moving a few times in the past ten years), and more guns on it as well as some rocket launchers. If I only had enough cash to spare to buy these things (and I do not because I am moving to California in a few months), then I would do so on here but at least I know where to get the parts, Crismo Giger.

I guess that I should tell you guys about the features that this particular vessel had on here. It was designed to be a combat vessel as opposed to anything over the long term, such as a capital ship, thus there are no sleeping quarters on this particular vessel, nor are there any bathrooms, recreational areas, meeting rooms, or sleeping quarters on board. This vessel was designed for research, military, or scouting purposes as opposed to something somewhat near true comfort status like a capital ship. I believe that the vessel was somewhere between 80 to 90 studs in length and its wingspan would be about 44 studs long. It had not one but two space fighters that could deploy plus all of the sections could be seperated, much like the fabled Space Police II Galactic Mediator, and that said sections could also form a temporary military base or research laboratory. The front of the vessel could also become not one but two soldier transport cells that, in a pinch, could also double as escape pods. The vessel also had two little scout vehicles (one of which was not seen in this picture) that could scout out the terrain for various tasks. Also, again like the Space Police II Galactic Mediator, it could hold two prisoners in two detainment cells, one located on each wing. Also, like the first two chambers on the main space craft, in a pinch, they could also double as escape pods. However, that was not the best feature of this vessel, for there were actually secondary and teritary back up control pods that could make, in essence a second or third ship, depending on how much that the vessel was damaged. It also had two missiles that were on the back of the vessel that could be guided in a variety of ways. It also contained a whopping crew of fifteen soldiers plus two other prisoners should the need arise for detainment purposes.

If you made this about 10 years ago, I'd like to see what you can do now. I agree with Nate. Digital photography makes MOC pages much faster and easier to maintain. Be patient it sometimes takes a while for people to comment on a new MOC. Also, MOCs with more pictures (but not too many) get more comments because people can see more details of your creation.

Quoting mithryl dlarix Thats a huge ship--its looking great though. Some more color coordination would be great, but I know how it is...Keep up the great work!
Thanks, mithryl, for your post. Your Gundam mecha are not bad either. By the way, did you ever get the chance to play the new Dynasty Warriors: Gundam games yet? They look sweet, even if they are merely Dynasty Warriors games with a Gundam label slapped over it. They had a lot of accuracy to the original show as well as fanservice, too.

Quoting Space Pirate I guess you rather meant here...how you get a main picture for this MOC? Go to the 'Add photos' site [click on the blue link 'Edit' next to the headline 'Galaxy Patroller' => now below the title there is another blue link 'Add photos', click it - it opens a new window]. Then enter the link of your photo in the first box [just click 'Browse...' next to it and search for the photo on your computer; note, it is the box sourrounded by an orange line, it says 'Change main photo'] => click the 'Upload your images' button on the bottom of the window and wait until it finished. Then click 'Continue'. Now you return to the 'Edit your LEGO creation' window and click 'Continue' again. You will see a preview of your new site including the main photo. Don't forget to click the 'Save changes>' button in the end ;) I'm not sure this was your question though...if not...sorry for misreading it :(
Thanks for the help. Now I will be able to make this thing look more professional. Just wait on my two, er three, newest creations (and one of them is not even a LEGO Space thing at all, either). You will like how they look. I am trying to wean myself away from the "rainbow warrior" look, though.

Oh yeah, I guess you were asking how to get the main photo for this MOC. Just do what Space Pirate said.

Well, there's not much to say. You may want to get a digital camera instead of one that uses film.
I was on it already thanks to discussions at Classic Space and I have been approved to use one. Now if I can just figure it out then I will be happy. I might need to redo my pages constantly, too. Is there any way for me to have a main screen picture on my webpage, though? I still kind of need help on that, you know. Please help me with that, okay? Thank you.
