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.
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
wow!!! this is such a great MOC I have tried to make a rock like this but I only really got the airship :P I was wondering if you could post a tutorial on how to make a floating rock!! thanks!
fabulous! it looks fantastic! it reminds me a dreamcast game named skies of arcadia! where all land where islands suspended in the air!
all interiors, exteriors, a backstory, all functions, details, pics, incredible!!!
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!
Oberaffengeil (slang for absolutely awesome), hope you excuse my austrian :) All those thingumajigs and thingies makes me wish I'd have a house like this. I bet he even has an mechanical fried egg cooker which makes his breakfast :)
Oh My Goodness. This is most certainly the best MOC I have ever seen (and boy, have I seen some good ones!). Checklist:
Floating Rocks: Amazing
Airship: Guess what? Amazing. xD
P.S. Could you plesae tell me how ever to make a balloon for an airship? I have tried. And failed.
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!
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!
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)
