The E.A.F. Missile Station and Thing-a-ma-bobber Missile.
My first creation in a long time, sorry it took so long. Also please excuse the nasty GIMP editing, that was done when I was new to the program. The pictures were also taken with my old Kodak, and now I have a new Canon, which has 12 megapixels instead of 7. This is also my entry to half and A4 Challeng by T.K.
About this creation


Well hello again! It's been a while since I showed you one of my creations. I haven't been building lately, but hopefully this MOC marks a new beginning for the E.A.F. and IHOWL. So, to start off, we have the Thing-a-ma-bobber missile for show today in our missile station. Quite a good looking missile if I do say so myself.



A side view of the Thing-a-ma-bobber.



And what better way for an awesome entrance than an hatch in the ceiling? Of course it is armored and shuts tighter than anything you can possibly imagine. You don't really wan't your finger to get jammed there, the nearest hospital is about 50 miles away. And I don't really know if I wan't to lend you my private helicopter...



Here is my sigfig preparing the missile for launch in his little corner of the station. Mind you this is only part of the main station, as the main station is invisible for safety reasons. One of them is that it would be too awesome for your eyes to behold and would fry your retina in 1000th of a second.



Sigfig: "Ah, hello again, I wonder who took this horrible picture? Whoever it was, he should expect a large cut in his paycheck. I was just about to grab lunch in the IHOWL food plaza. I wonder if I should go Dell Taco or Souplantation... Whatever my choice shall be, I shall enjoy my lunch. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be on my way."



Hmm, I guess we don't wan't to stall him any longer, I am getting hungry for lunch too, let's hurry this up shall we? Here are some ropes for escape through the hatch. Not too special, even though they were 2000 dollar ropes...



The station without the Thing-a-ma-bobber.



Here is the Thing-a-ma-bobber missile standing alone, looking very missile like.



The rocket of the Thing-a-ma-bobber. It cost IHOWL about $500,000, and I am quite pleased with it. Which is saying something, as I am often not very pleased with the things I purchase unless it works exactly as I expect it too, and that doesn't happen very often.



Here my, hand will demonstrate the act of the Thing-a-ma-bobber flying, and how it functions. I will not blow anything up this time, for it would cost me too much, and there doesn't really seem to be anybody to send this missile to than at my rival's office, and then we would have to deal with tons of noisy vuvuzelas outside our front doors, and my noise cancellation machine is refusing to work unless I pay for updates, which will cost me more than I'm willing to pay.



Here the missile's engine detaches from the part of the missile carrying the explosive, and falls to the earth. Hopefully the ocean, so the water cushions it's fall, and I can re-use it.



Now the little warhead inside the missile safely glides down to it's destination to blow it up. Ah, my little warhead boy has finally grown up. Excuse the following bits of emotion about to follow...



(After 5 hours of tearful emotion) Well, let's get back to business, shall we? Prepare to launch in five...quatro...three...dos...one



Lift off! The event is so spectacular, that the camera was even blinded by this.



Look at those colors! I have never witnessed this phenomenon, it is truly spectacular.



Now it is soaring through the air! Yippie! Now to show mister Andrew Somers what a real hole in the bathroom looks like...

Fourth Wall Commentary:

Well, hopefully, all of the rest of you live within a 30 mile radius of Andrew Somers's house, because if you don't... It wasn't my fault.

T.K.: This creation did fit on half an A4 Piece of paper, but I took it apart before I remembered to take a picture of it like that. Please just take my word for it.

Quoting Little Ewok This is sooooo cool Waffles. Maybe you should build a bore missile that can tunnel underground before detonating. Then you could blow up Andrew Somers' underground emergancy bathroom too.
MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now Andrew Somers will be bathroomless.

Quoting Andrew Somers
Quoting Pancakes shuts tighter than anything you can possibly imagine. You don't really wan't your finger to get jammed there, the nearest hospital is about 50 miles away.
No comment on that... But I will say that this is a nice rocket, with a nice color scheme. You'll regret blowing up my bathroom!
Dang it! Always you find something wrong, although I kinda knew that one would be easy for you, even though it doesn't quite make sense. Made me laugh though... And as for the bathroom thing, just consider us both even.
