Howza race fans. The latest entry to our exciting racing club is none other than: Heartburn! Thank you Alicia Keys. (Name runners up include: "Black Tangled Heart"-Silverchair, "Hungry Heart"-Bruce Springsteen, "Wild Hearted Son"-The Cult[great song by the way], "Heartspark Dollarsign"-Everclear and "Kickstart my Heart"-Motley Crue). Spike McWilliger is his real name (yes, that'll do) and his high performance raceship "body", in the shape of a loveheart, is a tribute to the memory of his sweetheart, who died tragically when she listened to one too many Avril Lavigne songs, whereby her brain imploded. Let this be a lesson to today's youth; say "NO" to Avril.
Anyhoo, where was I? oh yeah-Heartburn! This was one of those builds where you start off going in one direction and end up in Godknowswhere. Similar build structure to White Knight (horizontal bricks for wings) and about the same size too. A bit tricky to get the wings to set on that angle without rocking slightly but I got there in the end. Enjoy!
P.S. Avril Lavigne sucks!
Those blue technic 1/2 pins are the secret to the wings not looking really bad. Seriously.
Checking his 6.
The heart plan view.
The fins respond to his emotions:Vertical for mad or surprised.
Diagonal for normal racing concentration.
Horizontal for worried or sad.
Look out: Whitey's on yer tail!
Look, I made 2 MOCs at once. My collection must be growing...
