Caleb's 4x4 Contest- Round 1- Air Showdown!
My entry to Caleb's 4x4 contest
About this creation

Caleb's 4x4 Contest!

Hmm, so yeah, here we go, my first entry to a contest here on MOCpages!

I intended this to be for the showdown category, and that is how I built it, but I think it could also qualify for slow motion......


This pic again?! Anyways, so here is the backstory:

The navigator got a lock on the target. Immediately, the weapons board became active. The pilot pulled the trigger, and 20mm shells spewed from the Vulcan cannon. This was soon followed by a RIM-116 missile, to finish off the invader.....



Dat view from ze back, showing all the "complex" connections and whatnot. Used up a lot of trans clear elements, that's for sure....


The set-up air battle!



And finally, a break down of the "good guy" airplane. Feel free to use it, but please do give credit :-D

Anyways, yes, so this build is way different than what is normally expected form me; but it was fun trying to work out this build. In case you are wondering, yes, there is a little overhang from the wings, but its less than a stud, so. And the height is around 25-27 bricks or so, below the 32 limit.




Thanks for watching!

Excellent parts usage to get something that detailed with so few parts.

Quoting Nick Barrett Some proper pint-size action going on here. Nice job.
Thanks Nick. I'm surprised you didn't join yourself; I'm sure you could've come up with something really nice :-D

Quoting Scott Bertaut Great job! I think this is my favorite 4x4 I have seen. I was thinking of entering this contest, doing the final showdown from FaF Tokyo Drift with 2 wide cars. Realized I didn't have the parts though. "Mobius 1, fox 2!"
Ah, thats too bad. Maybe you should try building it next year; you might gain some more parts :-D

Quoting Vladimír R. Even though I would not recommend firing rocket at such close range, this little build is awesomely done, with really sweet part usage.
Thanks Vladimir :-D Yeah, I suppose it is quite dangerous; ah well....

Quoting Locutus 666 Nicely done. And a clever reuse of the airplane of your carrier. :)the screwdriver as a fired missile is a good idea! Like it!
Heh, yep, just did some borrowing from my carrier :-D The missile was just sorta a last minute edition, so I'm surprised it came out that well....

Quoting David Roberts A great looking MOC. I like the two 'planes and the way that you've linked them with the clear plates that look like jets. I like the way you've done the flames too.
Thanks David; yeah, the exhaust and flames came out much better than I expected; maybe its the background....

No offense but I cant wait till it topples over. In all seriousness though I think it's one of the coolest concepts on the classic 4x4 build! (But seriously you might want to add some supports :D)

Quoting Claw Paradox Poor Saab Viggen.
Heh, well, it shouldn't invade :-D Anyways, thanks for the comment, though really, the plane is more generic than anything, though I can see it as a Viggen or Gripen.....

Quoting Caleb of Enalica Nice! I like burning engine! Good luck!
Thanks Caleb! I'm glad the burning engine came out well; I was afraid that all the other little details would take away from it.....

Quoting clayton Marchetti This has to be the most action packed 4 x 4 entry I've seen ! Two fighters going ballistic in a duel to the death. Absolutely stunning! I love the missile launch and the 20 mm cannon hits on the enemy aircraft . I can't wait to see what you build in round two!
Thanks Clayton! The details weren't easy to get, but in the end, I am very pleased with the results. Round 2 shall be as interesting as this one :-D

Quoting MCLegoboy ! This is really cool. Is that a new screwdriver design? It looks better than the other one we've had for years.
Thanks; yeah, this is the new design. It has more detail on it than the older version, so. For guns, I think the old version is better, but otherwise, the new one takes it....
