Hey Matt, The parts you do have you definitely make count! Again I really appreciate your feed back on my MO build. I think we have very similare background, styles, and interest in builds. I to am coming out of a "dark age" (at least 20 years) and don' t have a huge collection so I try to pack all my pieces in to detail and quality like you. I literally have to tear down each MOC before I start another or I won't have enough pieces to finish.
Yeah, I'm with ya there.....not sure if "SHIP" will ever be in my vocabulary. LOL I love this design though, it's nice and sleek as well as compact but still looks like it would pack a punch....even in a ramming situation.
I think this works so well because, though small, it still has everything a larger counterpart would NEED. You didn't skip anything, and thats really impressive considering the size. I'm working on a smaller scale ship right now, never done it before, glad to have other talented individuals to study. Thanks Matt!
I already liked it in the preview. Reminds me a bit - just a bit - of the SULACO. The sand green parts are a nice touch and I love the cannon idea in the last pic. Maybe a little advice on the photos itself. Since bricks are very smooth, they always reflect their ambience. Take the photo of your MOC in front of a background that colour is similar to the one in the final picture. This way, you avoid funny looking edges, like in pic 1 and 2. Nevertheless a very cool creation.
