Now that the mech contest is over i can get back to my usual building schedule. This ship is the first of many ships i have planned. These are all going to be based on small sketches that i did in math class (yes, this also came from math class.) For some strange reason, most of my moc ideas are coming to me during math class lately. I've got a book full of doodles to prove it.
I'm already working on another one so it should be finished and posted in a couple days. I might even show you the drawings ;)
About this creation
The wing. I'm working on updating my photography setup right now. I need a couple lamps to light things up better. So, i should be done with that soon as well. Let me know what you think :)
The back. The main body of the ship is also equipped with thrusters to increase speed.
Here you can see the almost classic pilot standing in front of his almost classic ship.
I've been browsing through your star wars mocs lately, and I just realized something about all of your "math class MOCs". A lot of them have huge engines on the side of them connected to a small cockpit. If the engines are that big, then they would be extremely powerful. In a race, you have to start off with a sudden jolt of speed, quickly accelerating to top speed. So the question I'm asking is this. Wouldn't the cockpit module just be ripped off as the massive engines lurch forward? It's like attaching an egg on top of a Ferrari with a loop of tape on the bottom of the egg, then accelerating to top speed very quickly and expecting it to stay on. This is an exception because it has engines on the main module, but not, say, the Kraken.
Unusual and interesting design. The asymmetry is very cool and the engines are wonderful ... but ... the smoothness/simplicity of the wing bothers me a bit. It just seems it doesn't complement the engine ... but then again, I bet that's where the ingenuity is hidden!
Not sure about the wing....I just always picture space ships doing circles through space when they're off balance. LMAO Very great design though, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what you come up with in Math class. I think it would be really awesome if you included pics of the sketches as well. I'm always interested to see where designs spark from.
No blue background? No problem. Nice build here Mr. Corlett. I love the asymmetry of this build; engine on one side, wing on the other. Oh, and another design idea gestated in class? Shouldn't you be paying attention?! Hahaha.
super creation,super design,and super color ..amazing
I like it

Great colors, the yellow looks great with the blue and the shape is very unique. An overall great build. Also I just posted a new creation, its been a while ( http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/200816 ).-George
While I do dig the color scheme, I kind of feel like the big engines on the right side of the vessel can be replicated on the left side and that the wings can kind of fold over and that an aileron or two, even small ones, would make it look even more awesome. Other than that, nice job.
Aw, I see you finally learned that a simple piece of white posterboard makes a great background! I have no idea why I didn't think of that earlier. Anyway, I love the asymmetrical design of this. Nice thrusters too.
