2013 MocAthalon Wolf Pack: Frog and Lilypad
About this creation
2013 MocAthalon
Wolf Pack
This is for category #21: Will It Float?
Several years ago, Dave Kaleta challenged his students to build floating creations.
http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/195480
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.

When I first saw this category I thought it would be pretty easy, after all, all you have to do is make it large and light. Well, I went and built a compact and heavy frog and a fairly small lilypad and after that I began experiencing difficulties. I am very glad that I got this finished at all.

My frog can float for fairly extended periods of time but certain unconnected or poorly connected sections will begin to drift. You can see this in the main picture where his flipper is beginning to separate.





Here you can see the unfortunately ugly weight I had to use to balance out the heavy frog. I removed it for my previous pictures (besides the floating one) so it will balance on my photo stand.

Thanks for viewing this!!

I suspect this MOC sunk after a bit of time, as the frog has water all over it and the water around the edge of the lily has a convex reflection in it, showing that this photo was taken just before the water covered the lily pad. However, the idea is great and the model is floating in the picture. 4 points. ~Thoy

Quoting Wes Pitter I spy some very clever part usage, like the chairs that comprise the chest. Are the arms linked to the body, or are they just resting? Super idea, great execution, and you get 4 points from me.
They are just resting.

"Absolutely brilliant" will have to suffice. Not only is it a good build, but it floats!! :D

Quoting Riccardo Zangelmi Was a long time, I wanted to create a leaf so but I've never succeeded ... With this setting, you made me happy ... and you taught us all a great new technique. Congratulations, for this fantastic job.
Thanks a lot. The leaf could probably be improved with some slopes or tiles to cover the studs but I did not have the pieces.

Good for you, not quitting when it just wouldn't float. That frog is also adorable. :) 4 points
