The oMICROn Weekend: A Micro Fanboy Tribute to Keithlug
ChiefLUG presents the oMICROn Weekend, a CSF Micro Fanboy contest entry dedicated to the original Omicron Weekend by KeithLUG.
About this creation
Over a period of four weeks in January 2008, the band of four intrepid builders (me, Andrew Lee, Gary McIntire, and Scotty Whitesell) known as ChiefLUG began a massive undertaking: rebuild the world famous Omicron Weekend in microscale for the Micro Fanboy Contest on Classic-Space.com Forums. To be honest, so much work went into this and so much time spent on it that it's impossible to give credit to any one person for much of the layout because we all had a hand in its development from start to finish, but there are some instances when one or two builders were primarily responsible for some element of the display and I've credited such contributions underneath a few photos. That said, I hope you enjoy our group effort:




The ultimate goal of any fanboy micro is to fool the viewer into thinking he or she is looking at a thumbnail of the real thing.


Top View: You never saw the original from this angle! ;)


This


thing


is


huge!


We built at about 1/4 scale. You might find some compromises and a bit of fudging here and there, but we generally calculated things out to 25% of the original Weekend.


It was very important to us that we include all the great details that made the original the Best In Show winner at BrickCon 07 in Seattle.


Gary (aka MrGSnot) is the main man responsible for the underground. His attention to elements like recessed wall detailing and curved tracks made this area shine, when it easily could have been something we blew off completely.


The Wheel was my biggest contribution, which is fitting since Ryan Rubino is the original creator.


Gary again came through with an amazing rendition of the lighthouse.


Wheel detail.


The boats are Scotty's creations, while the hovercraft are Andrew's.



The ominous front guard tower and gate of the facility.



Tanks!



Habitat modules and prison facility.



Credit here goes to Andrew for the medship and the landing pad, and the red hangar bay evolved from Scotty's hands to mine and ultimately polished off by Andrew.



CAV Scout VTOL flying over the Adminztrazum.


The two CAVs (left Scotty's, right Andrew's) atop the WALHEIM landing pad.


You can find more photos in my Flickr gallery here; please feel free to add me as a contact and you can start noting and commenting on photos! Or, if you prefer the basic Brickshelf layout, my full gallery can be found there, as well as in Andrew Lee's Brickshelf and Flickr galleries. And again, the original Weekend can be seen here in Ryan Rubino's Flickr gallery, or searching on Flickr for the tags "Omicron Weekend" will give you results from many people's photos from Northwest Brickcon 2007, where the display won Best in Show.

Play on words with the name... clever. Attention to detail of the original... inspiring. Pictures of the ring portion... more than the original. Underground detail... Stangely... exciting? OK enough of that. This thing is awe inspiring. A true work of art. I can't wait to see what you come up with next. thanks for sharing it with us. ~ Chris.

You can tell you did good when the thumbnail for this and the real one are interchangable, which is the impression I got. Anyways, this is simply awesome. Like the real thing, it's hyper detailed down to the last stud. The wheels on the mini fork lift are just awesome, and lighthouse rules.

No, he coulden't settle on the ring or the transport ship or the lighthouse, he just had to go and do it all and show all us MOCer's how it's done... Nice job, the dtail is fantastical, and it looks like the real thing. Good luck with the contest.

I just saw this in the latest folders on Brickshelf, noticed you were the one who built it, and came looking for it here on MOCpages. I guess I should really get in on this Flickr stuff, huh? :-P Anyway, awesome job. I enjoyed every detail of this mini almost as much as I savored every detail of the original Omicron Weekend. I wonder if you built it purely because of the perfect play with words: oMICROn? Heheh. Anyway, awesome.
