About this creation
Another title for this could be "One of the most challenging builds on the face of the planet". Chas Irish came up with this brilliant idea of two builders looking at a picture and building what they see there. The end result should be each of the builders build what they see in their own unique way, while still building the same exact thing. Yeah I know. Pure genius.
This one is with the originator of it all, Chas himself. See his here.
You can see the original picture here. What a crazy design! I actually love the ship, but the rounded, bubble-like shape is unspeakably hard to develop into a Lego creation. As you can see I did a poor job molding behind the cockpit, the tail fin, and the engine in the back. So feel free to critique, but I've probably already considered everything already. =)
I think it turned out OK though. Definitely a different design!
Don't you love those long, rounded slopes? I had to buy three clones wars sets to get 'em...but it turned out right in the end. I sold the figs on Craigslist. Can you believe that I have around 50 clones and Stormtroopers? Yeah. I know.
Too bad I have no desire whatsoever to use them.

Beautiful. Maybe you could lock your clones in a box with a brick in it. Or have a Hanging of the clones MOC. Or trick them into believing the LEGO City Slaughterhouse is a theme park. Oh yeah, the MOC. Yes, I do love the long, smooth curves. You just reminded me I need more Cheese slopes. And real cheese for that matter.
Stunning work man! Love the overall shape and the details, and I really like those long slopes, very useful parts and way better than the shorter ones... another amazing MOC from you, keep it that way pal.
You both captured a good likeness to the source picture. Just a shame neither of you realize the "sticky out" bits on the front, although like Chas said, they're probably impossible to do at this scale without going down unpurist routes. Good job!
This is really great! I like the nice, smooth look. I see one little spot though... Those two engine intakes in the front... There's a better way to connect that 1 x 4 flat plate. Instead of the technic pins you used, minifig hands would fill up those gaps perfectly. The only downside to that technique is that it's exponentially more delicate. Just a thought... Tell me what you think of that technique. Again, this is really great. -Sterling
Nice ship. Stands out in a crowd. Cool idea working from a choosen picture. I think I'll steal the idea for TwinLUG. Maybe we can all build the same thing for our next meeting in a couple of weeks. see ya. garth
Good one. I like the colors and the center intake on the front. In many other parts though, the mix of curved slopes and straight slopes don't mix well, as well as the fact that [IMO] the two side intakes don't look good alongisde a very curved front. They [the turbines] would look better to me along with a square-ish front.
Good job JD, the curved pieces are great (much better then slope) and I think that the red really brings out the grey. Looks very good considering that this piece would be a hard build. I'll be looking forward to what Chas has to bring to the table. -Dylan
