My contribution to NoVVember and my first spaceship. The main point here was the cockpit and its base which should be sleek so that the canopy stays the most prominent element at the front. The flight shot was taken during the last test flight. (Sorry for the crappy photoshopping, it's just for the fun of it). Thanks for looking!
About this creation
Have you ever seen something like it? - No, I haven't. - Do you think ...? - Yes, I do. We should return quickly.
Thanks guys! @Parrington: Thanks mate. Very glad you like it! Doesn't seem to be my greatest success, but as I said before maybe that's the way a car builder feels about a spacecraft: an engine rather than a matter of shaping ... Something you'd like to dr..., er, fly by yourself. Sorry to say that this is an ex-MOC. It was destroyed in a terrible accident (I've just added a pic, see below). @Oran: Thank you! I've joined the group in the meantime.
No way! How did I miss this? Dude I am so glad to see you do one of these, and it's easily one of the best. I love the more fitting Legoland minifig scale you have here, no shock you are also a big fan of doing that just look at your cars, and the details are jam packed all over this thing. Even the subtle ones like the color stripes on the tail, simple and elegant. Stunning work mate. One of my favourites full stop.
Thanks a lot guys! @David: Many thanks! @Loek: Glad you like it! It's almost the flag of the Netherlands - almost ;-) @Elk: Thanks a lot. I didn't think of that but I can see what you mean. You don't think of it as something nice and friendly ... @Nils: Thanks a lot buddy. It's an honor to be a member of "The Club" now! @Chris: Many thanks! Yeah, this might be the biggest bug of MOCpages. As I said before, glad it's not a car! Your case was much worse ...
great work, i've caved and will post a VV later this week, and bummer about getting knocked off the homepage happend to me a few weeks ago and i lost a lot of exposure on my MOC which should have been a hit.
Thanks a lot guys, glad you like it! --- Please note that editing a comment (and not rating again or whatever) may knock the MOC off the homepage - which has just happened here ... Fortunately it's not a car! --- @Oran: I'll be back, Oran, I'll be back ... ;-) @David: See below :) @Z: Believe it or not - it had wheels at the beginning ... ;-)
Thanks a lot guys! @Starscream: Thanks mate. Well, there are quite a few amazing VVs out there, and this is none of them ... ;-) @Marcel: Thanks buddy! What the VV hype is all about you may read here:
http://mocpages.com/group.php/20117 @Sven: Thanks a lot my friend! Yes, the first one. I like it because you're free to do whatever you want - you can even omit the wheels ;-). - Die Flagge ist tatsächlich eine Reminiszenz an die französische Trikolore. Es ging mir hier zwar in erster Linie um die Kontrastfarben, aber Freiheit, Gleichheit und Brüderlichkeit sind -
hoffentlich - auch in Zukunft Werte, für die einzustehen sich lohnt - ohne dabei jedesmal den Photonentorpedowerfer anschmeißen zu müssen ;-) @David: Thanks a lot, glad you like it! This was exactly my idea - to have a utility
spaceship rather than a design study. @Jon: Thanks a lot, glad you like it. Means a lot coming from a highliy skilled space builder like you. @Vinny: Many thanks mate! You should definitely try it - for me it was a great
recreation from the usual "squeeze as many figs as possible in a small car" stuff. Looking forward to your VVV! ;-) @David: Thanks a lot for your nice and thorough comment. Glad you like the structure. Indeed the spaceman is
meant as a contrast to that rather mean machine. Maybe the ship is a modified prey taken from the enemy ... @Aaden: Thanks a lot buddy!
Hey , Marcus. I see you pulled off yet another masterpiece. I have a question though. What is this ''Vic Viper'' hype all about? Are you all making specific vehicles from cartoons and video games or are you all just making super cool looking starships? Please reply,Mate. :)
Wow Marcus. Now i'm surprised :) This is your first spaceship? Wow, it's great. I'm not a big fan of space stuff but yours is really cool. Mal auf Deutsch, welche Bedeutung hat die Flagge am Heck? Eigentlich ist es ja die Schleswig Holsteinische Landesflagge, kam aber auch irgendwie auf die Idee das es vielleicht auch für Frankreich stehen könnte weil du da ja so gerne bist.
A very different VV. I love the ribs coming out of the spine and the spindly landing gear, with claws. The asymmetrical front prongs are a great idea, which I've never seen on a VV before. At the back there's some nice engines and a neat working rudder. The happy, smiling Classic Spaceman is a strange, unsettling contrast with the ship. Great work!
