Otherwise known as "A Study Into Hinges."
About this creation
Wow, it's really been a while since I posted anything. My sincere apologies. That multi-eyed, ghoulish beast called my life has struck me many times these past weeks.

This is my official study into building a model that's more creative. If you haven't seen it already, most of my models follow a strict framework. This one doesn't.




When I got tired of my cool yet fragil T3, I decided to follow through with a study of hinges. I also went on a strict no HUGE piece diet. I allowed myself medium slopes and shaped plates. The end result is this.


Of all the ships I've ever made, this one is by far my best. It's the crown jewel of my pages, and I'm not even totally finished yet!


In the spirit of Halloween, I've kept this to a black and orange scheme, with grey and yellow for good measure.


How many photos are on here? I'm getting tired of captions.


Anybody live in Oklahoma? Do you like college football? Do you pray for Sam Bradford every night, or wish you had Landrey Jone's mustache?


Hmmm, guess not.


I'm stil not satisfied, so advice is welcome.


Okay, I've never put this many pictures on.


Still here?


How about now?


Do those sides look like spaceships to you?


Is this the cockpit? I sure hope it is, or this caption is out of place.


And we're done!

More to come later.

I like this original design you have going here, this is the neatest version of that shape you have devised yet. Looks great and your engines are a master piece.

You've reached the perfection in your own cool style with this one. I appreciate the color scheme, and this shape is so well done, very nice !

Cool nacelles, and the thrusters idea is very good. Might need to steal it sometimes :)

Quoting Space Pirate that's a nice fighter, the colours work fine and I especially like the neon orange canopy, didn't know that piece is available in orange... :) As for improvement...I don't like the missiles and the engines (but I guess that's just me). Well, as I said multiple times before, I think the engines are just too simple. Maybe try to add some pieces inside the ball, dunno how though...you could try out several tires and see which one fits...? Something like that...haven't tried it out myself, but I've seen several people building something inside these ball turret pieces. And for the missile design, well, I think white doesn't match the colour scheme, and those fins should be turned around....but as said before...this is just what I'd have done, doesn't mean that it is bad per se... ;)
Yeah, I know the methods to get a better engine design. I'm currently experimenting with different ways to make them better. As for the missiles, those were intended to be suicidal fins, so the look was intentional. I'll see what I can do about the color. Thanks for the advice, and thanks for the compliments as well.

Nice colour scheme, you've come a long way since your first posted MOCs! I like the slight angle the engines are arranged in.
