Public Space Transport . . Here we have my public space transport. This particular vehicle doesnít have a name for the same reason that taxis or buses donít have names. This craft is strictly for intergalactic travel. This is the smallest craft that I have built to date, and that, in itself, posed a challenge. Trying to reel in my tendencies to build large will always be difficult for me. It is also the first ship that Iíve built that is completely without weaponry. Iím going to refer to this one as a WIP submission because it is a part of a much larger project in the science fiction city that I am currently engaged knee-deep in. I have also included some pics of the technique I used for the core of the ship. Some of the more accomplished builders on this site will have undoubtedly already figured this out, but those who are new to SNOT may find it useful. Side view. Top view. Sorry for the blur here. Since this is a WIP, I didn't take the time to reshoot. The underside. Is that a "T" I see under there. Why, yes, I believe it is. From here there are some technique pics. Start with 4 2x1 bricks with studs on 2 sides, 2 2x8 plates and 2 1x8 plates. Attach the modified bricks to the bottom of one 2x8 as shown here. Make sure that all of the bricks have their top studs facing out except for one of them at the ends. That is where you'll attach your engines. Also make sure that you don't mind the color of the brick that has the studs facing in, because you'll see a little sliver of it protruding from the rear. Place the other 2x8 on top Attach your 2 1x8's on either side. As you can see, the studs are now facing in all directions... ...except the rear. This makes it easier to attach the thrusters without having to do much manipulating of the parts. Hope this was helpful. BONUS PIC!!! This is my daughter's first spaceship! Notice that she included a light brick and a sound effect brick. Well done, Munch! Thanks for checking it out. Let me know what you think.
