SSA Orchid LDD
This deep space flower breaks all the spaceflight regulations and gets away with it. Mr. Bureaucrat can't file paperwork against what he can't catch. This model is a 1st draft of an upcoming physical model. I anticipate travel in my near future that will take me away from LEGO, so I wanted to see if a thing like this raises any interest.
About this creation







The minifig is meant to slide into the canopy from the rear. I will probably change it so that the hinge is in the front of the ship. Dumping out a minifig every time would get tiresome.


The landing gear is colored yellow in this shot so that you can see it better.

Quoting Alex Sonny This deserves a good POV-ray rendering. Is there a way I can send you the completed picture?
yes. you can upload it as one for your creations and credit me in the bottom for the LDD model. POV rendering will probably take some tweaking or some re-coloring to get it to look right. If you spend time and effort on it then the finished product is yours.

very nice design both in structure and detail :D According theme title , they really look quite "girlish" but still dangerous. Trunk design is very splendid , it looks like some kind of flower :D Good job :D

Perfect name. Delicate and lethal. Looks like a great start for a series of platforms riding the similar design. Wicked cool.

Quoting David Roberts Fascinating angles on this ship. It was great to be able to take to pieces in LDD and see how it all works before writing my comments too. Because of this I've spotted how each pair of "wings" is held together with three hinges, which makes them super sturdy & stable. The landing gear is a neat and simple idea too. I think that it would be great to see this in real bricks. I'm not sure where you'd hold it to swooosh it though!
I'm glad you like the wing hinges. I figured out that technique when I was making the comet hopper. In physical lego, it holds together very well and gives you a nice 2x2 area to put things on.
