The Greeble: a space racer Technic-figure-scale. My personal excercise in size and greebling...
About this creation
I'm planning on making a Cyborg-Pittstop-ship. This Greeble Racer is a thing I wanted to do to try some new angles, some experimental greebling, but most of all on how big I can go on my supplies. I'm still not at the end of my reserve and I've got a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do.

The back section opens up to show the turbines and engines.
I made "the Greeble" chassis and ship first and added greebling here and there only at the end. Next time (for a mark II) I'll start with a central greebling and build the ship around it.
The front section of the racer can open up to reveal lots of greebles, greebles, greebles!

I know, I know, the technic fig; right? I just feel that enginesgreebling gets a better credibility this way then with minifigs!
Okay, Kelso's and Goldmans greebling style are great ( read: fantastic) but they also lose a certain realism, especially in microscaleMOC's. Realistic greebling, that is: in my twisted world of fantasy, is done more justice to Technic fig scale. There!
It took me about 10 evenings of 4 straight hours building to get it done. It weighs 3,3 Kg, sorry don't know how many pounds that is... I added the tentacles (supposed to be tubes) and round parts at the end to take away some sharp edges on the ship. It gives the whole thing a more Organic/ Bionic look.
Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment!
Hmmmmm..... HMMMMM.... After I got past the crazy technic pilot (never like those guys for some reason) and the sort of out of place wings and tentacles, I realized that it's a ship with extreme functionality all over the place! After staring at it for a while I really like it. The variable engines on the bottom are an especially nice touch. Cool, out of the ordinary ship Giovanni!
