Floating Rock
About this creation
This foating rock is home to Bartholemew Crank and eccentric inventor. In his early years he worked hard as a machanic until he had earned enough money to buy his own floating rock. His rock is now decked out with doo-dads thing-a-ma-bobs and doo-hickies.

   The second floating rock is one that he managed to lasso after it broke off of a larger rock.



Enlarge image
   Now full of enventions and machinery his home is quite cramped.



Enlarge image
   After adding the roof cannon he needed a way to get to the roof. He invented something called a ladder.



Enlarge image
   This ginormous propeller is powered by a higly efficient steam engine allowing Bartholomew to move his floating rock wherever he wishes.

   Who know how long this tree will last with its roots exposed.

   Docking rock for docking his airship.



Enlarge image
   This is part of his cannon system used to fire a net to catch junk which falls off of larger airships.



Enlarge image
   This large rudder allows the rock to be steered to a desired location.



Enlarge image
   Although the rock is falling apart, Bartholomew keeps his house intact with supports.



Enlarge image
   His steam mailbox extends and retracts to allow for easier access.



Enlarge image
   Ready to fire the net cannon.

   Here is where he sleeps and invents.

Great fun and good looking too. I like the oval front doorway and all of the interior details. The net cannon, for catching falling sky junk, is a great idea.

You have a gem here. It's the idea that nails it. Of course! The very first thing anyone does after finding a floating rock is to build a house on it. But what's the point of having a floating house if no one sees it? So this genius figures out a way to make it "drivable". Brilliant! This is easily one of the cooloest mocs ive seen, great build. ~cheers

Somewhere, Isaac Newton is doing a face-palm at the floatiness of these rocks. Nice job!

Lots of interesting detail here, like all the random bits of stuff in the house. The steam propeller for moving is a nice idea. The steam mailbox seems a bit excessive though. The rocks kinda remind me of the floating mountains in Avatar.

This seriously is mint. It reminds me of the Edge Chronicles, and even of Mortal Engines. Great book series, and definately a great model. The airship and the massive propellor are deffinately my fav parts. It sure makes you want to own your own private floating isle!

Every time I look at this creation I think 'why can't I build that dang good!' That is sooooo gooooddd!! Great job on the bottom, and making it look like its a big clump of the ground that was torn from the dirt. The building is so cool too!

Heh, I saw this on B-shelf yesterday, very interesting and cool. Definately something that could be used for a fantasy novel or something. You captured the concept art quite nicely I have to say, and the net gun, steam engine, and the flying machines are quite impressive. Well done!

This is fantastic in detail and structure. The net cannon is neat (I thought it was a telescope at first). Have you ever considered using the rock itself as a basement for the house?

Now this is how floating rocks should be built! This is a refreshing advancement from the usual flat green platforms with BURPs on the bottom. The overall design looks wonderful, with the two differently sized islands at different elevations, and the overhanging tree (love it) and building. Plus, you've got tons of excellent details, such as the built up door, tree roots growing out from underneath, and the huge propellor and rudder. Great work!

Oh, I thought the mailbox was some sort of gun. I'm stuck in the ultra-violent-space mindset, I guess. I love that he has to climb through the window to get to the ladder to the roof. Neato.

This is great! I love the attention to detail throughout the MOC. (The door, the tree roots, the tech details, the giant propellor, etcetera.) We need more big floating rocks. (Or just more floating rocks this good)
