Ever since I saw the movie a couple months ago, I've wanted to build Serenity. Comparable to the Millenium Falcon, it isn't an easy ship to build. I was hoping to draw some inspiration from other models, but I was surprised to not find very many. Still this was a fun challenging build.
Yes, the engines (more like the entire wing) pivot for landing and maneuvering. The nose was a different color, earlier on, and I didn't feel like taking another picture, after I changed it out.
Very nice take on the micro version. I know what you mean about wanting to take inspiration from other sources, since I hoped for the same thing when I built the Dark Aster from Guardians of the Galaxy. As far as I can tell, so far I'm the only one to have tried my hand at capturing it in Lego format. Good job to figure a lot out on your own, and once again, well done!
