While working on an upcoming large moc, I needed a break from the piles of greys I'd been using. I wasn't feeling up to a new Jade Empire moc, which would have used sand green, but i did have a bag of regular green which I rarely touch. After tinkering with some curvey wedge slopes, I came up with the concept of an alien fighter, something I don't think we see enough of in Lego mocs.
This ship utilizes green and tan, with trans orange highlighting on the engines and hull. It's a color scheme used by the X-Pod bot, but no space factions. Perfect for an alien design.
Everyone likes to make up their own subthemes for space mocs, and I can already picture some larger ships in this style, but I'm not sure I'll jump in the pool with a new theme when there are already a ton of great themes to build in. Time will tell.
This is wonderful, I saw the Brickshelf gallery this morning and wondered what it was... I'd like it better with a little bigger underbody. The idea of only having 2 laser cannons is different, but still neat. - Matt
