Skirpo G.W.9
YEAH! Mah GyroWheeled, 1/2 revamp, 1/2 reMAKE, giant, red... um, THING, is FINISHED!! SNAP! And, yes i know perfectly well that the set is SKOPIO and not SKIRPO, but, I DON CARE.
About this creation
I came up for the idea of this Reverse Gyrowheel while messing with the Skopio's treds. A normal Gyrowheel is a wheel within a wheel with the inner wheel spinning, creating angular momentum, and does not stop without force. I'm sure you are familiar with a Gryroscope, the fun little toys that seem to defy physics with the simple spinning wheel and cage sturcture? A Gyrowheel is similar, althoughit is primaryily a 2-D motion, with the spinning going only on the x and y axi, while the Gyroscope has an added z-axis, due to it's position and stucture.


Okay, I know that you probably weren't reading that, but HERE'S WHERE YOU NEED TO LISTEN!!!!


A Reverse Gyrowheel is similar to a Gyrowheel, but the spinning is on the outside, making it a perfect choice to make a vehicle for. The treds, when connected on the opposite way they are regularly, make a perfect wheel (something i'm sure you know is VERY hard to do with Legos).

PHEWW!! That was a lot to type, and i DID type all that, in my own words, and with mostly my own knowledge (i did look up "how does a Gyroscope work?" on youtube ;D).

Oh, snap, this is awesome! I made both a revamp of Telluris and a remake of the Skopio, making both radder, and BIGGER!I was actually running out of stuff to use for the back, so i made it simple, yet elegant ;)

The wheel is made up of the oringinal treds reversed. The inside wheel is actually connected to the body of the vehicle while the outter wheel is only just touching...

...a gear that is connectd to these wheels, which are acturally doing the work of moving, the wheel is more for show than anything. I came to the problem that the wheel didn't have enough traction so i used the rubber wheels to make it go.

And here's Telluris, in a grander form. I pretty much just made him bigger and gave him the jaws of the Skopio for a weapon.


YEAH! Hope you like! i'm gonna be working on maybe creating a TRUE selfMOC, or Agonance the Great Being, either way, HERE I GO!

Very nice Telluris looks very good, and the giant back wheel is very cool! And I can't believe someone else knows what 'Snap' means! Lol, I did I double take, but hey, I guess pop-culture spreads fast!
