21. Will It Float?
Several years ago, Dave Kaleta challenged his students to build floating creations.
Now, the challenge is passed on to you. Build the biggest and/or best looking floating creation you can manage. You must provide a picture of the object maintaining position above the water line, aka floating.
We're in the year 2035. The public doesn't allow the psychos to walk free around, so they have to live on a Isle, far away in the ocean. On each "Psycho Isle" can live 6 psychos, but currently there are only three on this, so there's still place for more. These three guys living there are...
...Oh, I think I better tell you later ;).
So now, to our three friends...
First, we have Thoy, the tiny Freshwater Crocodile!
Then, there's also Chris the Chimpanzee!
And at least, Rufus the Rabbit!
And here are the pics of it floating:
The construction is made out of this (inverted) and then added the isle on it, that's basically all of the trick. The problem about is, that it doesn't holds too much weight, means I only could add a few parts and had to leave it by only having one tree (did you note the vines climbing it? ) and some minifigs on it.
This was a lot of fun to do and I hope that at least 3 of you 6 judges like it ;P.
I was thinking of techniques to use for this category. You have used the obvious one, and most likely it will be the most common one. I have thought of two other techniques which are harder to pull off but show depth in engineering. This looks great. 5 points. ~Thoy
P.S. Hab grad gesehn, dass du aus Basel kommst - Interessant, damit bist du bislang der nächste an mir dran Wohnende, den ich von MP kenn (Komme selbst aus Freiburg bzw. Umland). Und Alte Geschichte zu studieren, kann ich dir nur empfehlen ;-)
