MOC Olympics Round 3: Chas Irish vs. Professor Eggplant
The third round of the MOC Olympics!
About this creation
Category: MicroScale
Opponent: Professor Eggplant


I named this MOC: Classic Micro Space
It's a mixture of Classic Space and MicroScale. The MOC is a gold mine in a crater on the moon.


Enjoy!

A view down the MOC


What a MicroScale figure sees

The Steps for Mining on the Moon




1. The miners mine the gold ore and the mech dumps it into the bin.


2. The crane grabs the ore from the bin and...


...drops it into the back of the Rail Transport.


3. The Rail Transport dumps the gold into the conveyor bin.


4. The conveyor belt brings out the ore in a single file line.


5. The ore is dropped into the containment boxes.


6. The containment boxes are closed with the Stamper.


7. When containment boxes reach the end of the conveyor belt, they are pushed by the dozer into hold of the cargo ship.


8. The cargo ship exports the gold ore for a profit.

Commentary: It's round 3, and the MOC Olympics haven't gotten any easier. Infact, they've gotten harder. Dylan B. and Professor Eggplant? Was it this hard for anyone else?
This was my first microscale creation. It was interesting to build. Everything was built around the ships that I made. I wish I had enough pieces to make the entire crater. Maybe someday when I have the pieces, I'll make something else like this.





If you liked it, why don't you comment? I'd love to read what you have to say!

Excellent build! If I was a judge you'd definitely have my vote! I can tell you put a LOT of time and effort into this build, and it shows. Be very proud of your entry my friend! Good luck with the final judge!

Oh gosh, I hope Brian votes for this. I have not yet seen such a close match, especially when the score is 1 to 1. Great work Chas, and best of luck!

Sweet. This is an amazing micro-scale work here Chas. It is tough to decided who to suport, since you two are good builders. Keep it up.

Wow! I REALLY like how this turned out. The little mine with the tracks and mining cart, the crane and the conveyor belts...it's all too much to mention. I think you've nailed the classic feel of 80's space here.

Great entry, but this would maybe be better as a Classic Space, but that wasn't your category, so nevermind. I really like those micro vehicles and spaceships! Really nice work!

Well, well, well. Now this is a smokin' build. It tells a story without needing any words. It looks like it is up to Brian now, because you have my vote. Lee.

How many of those pills did you take Phipson? Lee, vote for this one. Not like I'm trying to persuade the judges. Kidding, best of luck to both you guys.

Awesome! Every aspect about this is Great-the crater, the spacemen's lodge-type place, the vehicles, the idea, and pretty well everything! Good luck with the other judges. (I'm still pretty ticked Eggy didn't get knocked out in the first round.:D)

Quoting Chris Phipson I was saying that I didn't "take off any points" for that but Eggy went so far outside of his comfort level that it gave him a slight edge in my mind. That's all. ~ Chris.
Okay. Thanks.

Quoting Chris Phipson EDIT: Also another deciding factor for me was this ... Now of course, using what brought you this far isn't a factor
I'm not mad, but how were my previous MOCs not a deciding factor when you started off saying it was?

Quoting The Dawg WOW! I saw Eggplants entry and thought "Chas is going to come up with something amazing," and you did. In my opinion you should win this round and you are my pick to win it all. Good luck!
Thanks for your support! I hope I win to!

Ok, this was the HARDEST one to judge for me yet! Chas, you’ve got Eggy DEAD TO RIGHTS on size and concept here. All those little details are what really made this moc POP! But he’s got you clean on technique. His engines and the way he copied the overall look of the ship were amazing! That being said, this is THE hardest one for me to judge yet… but my vote goes to Eggy. Perhaps the other judges will see it differently ‘cause like I said… MAN this was close. I’d say it was a 49 to 51% split for me… yeah, that close. Good luck to ya! ~ Chris. EDIT: Also another deciding factor for me was this. There's a few of your builds that use this same basic technique in other areas. One of your castles and the one you call "extraction" are a couple of examples. Now of course, using what brought you this far isn't a factor, but the concept behind the Olympics is to build outside your comfort zone, and let's face it, Spaceships are about as far outside of eggy's comfort zone as you can get. Don't get discouraged though, there's still two other judges to cast their votes. Hold your head up HIGH! It's not over yet! ~ Chris.

Thats a hard match-up man. But look on the bright side, you look me out fair and square and your about to throw the Professor down too. You've been playing great Chas, and I wouldn't be surprised if you actually won! Great work. -Dylan
