A spacecraft with attitude to spare... and working fold-out landing gear!
About this creation
With this one, I think I did a good job of making a nonmilitary but purposefully tough-looking cruiser. And if you haven't already noticed, the colour scheme is green only where form manages to prevail over function, while the grey parts remain strictly industrial.
Gotta love that rear attachment. Note the vent behind the passenger compartment. And I admit that I'm addicted to vents on my spaceships - it's such an easy way to fill a space and make it look interesting. Any suggestions for alternative methods of adding detail? Never mind that they're utterly useless where there's no air.
The glass is only held in place by those clip-joint thingies and two 1x2 plates on the ceiling. But it works perfectly.
A good shot of the very long nose. The twin ridges are nice, as are the three irregular fins. I also use those Tiny Turbos engine bits too much...
And here we have a demonstration of the folding landing gear!
See, the plating swivels backward to expose the "legs"...
...which fold out one by one. I had to leave a hole above them so it's possible to reach in with a finger and pull each leg out.
And this is what it looks like extended.
Here's the ship standing on its own. And that, ladies and gents, will be my last post of the summer! See you all in September!
