MocOlympics Round 2 Luke Chapman Vs. John 55555 - A-2 SSIC Cobra
About this creation
My illustrious adversary, Luke Chapman.

And the 2011 MocOlympics.

Shrink It: Take something huge, and make it in microscale. Looking for creative ways to capture the details of the large MOC and translate them into microscale. Can be one of your own MOCs microsized, an official LEGO set, or another person’s MOC ).





So there's the original creation, The A-8 SSIC Cobra, constructed by Vinn, in my opinion one of the very best Lego Space ships built by one of the very best Lego Space builders. Here is the link to it on Flickr.









So there's the build, I hope you like it.

When I first saw I was assigned to this theme, after some 'Oh-death-where-is-thy-sting-ing' I went to my 100 Favorite MOCs group on Flickr (which I'm now glad I assembled). There were really three options that presented themselves, this, this, and the ship I ended up doing. The Phenix was ruled out because it was already microscale, and I decided against The Rack, because I would have had to do some Bricklink orders to pull it off, and that part of its mystique is the size of the thing, among other reasons.

So I settled on Vinn's sick Cobra.

The one thing that I chose to change was the back right fin, which I decided to make an arrow tile, echoing the original arrow tile usage on the cockpit of Vinn's MOC. I think it looks cool and is kind of a fun detail so I left it in. Plu-u-us I didn't have any more dark gray 1x2 tiles handy... :-P

Special thanks to Retinence and Anomaly for their help during the building process.

So yeah.

May the best FOL win!

Tough luck on not advancing, and a hard fought challenge. Good build though, so well done for that.

John you put together an excellent entry and it was a very difficult decision. In the end, I had to go with Luke's entry. I'm afraid your MOC-O journey ends here, but don't be sad. Be happy that you made it such a great match-up and, more importantly, developed an awesome creation!

Thanks Luke! Thanks Phipson and Mister Xeno, for your verdicts and compliments. And Hans, I haven't lost quite yet, one judge has given me a thumbs up and another a thumbs down, so it remains for Matt David to give the final verdict. Check back later. Thanks everyone. :-)

An excellent choice of build and well executed in microscale. This was another on a long list of close fought battles that, unfortunately, someone had to lose. Better luck next year.~H

John, I just told Luke how hard it was to me to finally come to a decision in your case. Both your entries are brilliant and at the same time not easy to compare. Your parts usage - and the greebling as a result - convinced me to give you my vote.

John, you did a REALLY nice job on this! I'm really impressed (and the comparison shot was a real help, thanks)! Over all I think Luke just took it a little bit further here. Hold your head up high though, this is really nice! My vote went to Luke. Thanks! ~ Chris.

Once again, completely different takes on the category, although I looked at a load of SHIPs and other such sci-fi stuff before plumping on a castle build. The angles you've got in here and the compactness of it all is really great. All the best.
