Dune - Ornithopter

Postby -2x4- » Thu Sep 08, 2011 1:09 pm

Hi,
This is my second attempt of the Harkonnen Ornithopter, from the David Lynch movie "Dune". I'm a big fan of the books from Frank Herbert, but I also love the movie version, the design is brilliant! It's a complete new build, this version is fully playable. It has a complete interior and the landing gear is also new. I hope you like it.

It's hard to imagine how that could be an ornithopter, but then again, I haven't seen Dune. Nevertheless, it's a great build. I really like the spheres in the back.

Cool technique and nice dio. It captures the original ship quite well, but it was in respect of design never my favourite! Should not forget to mention too: spacy, spacy!

Now this is not your usual spaceship design. I have never seen this 'Dune', but if it has spaceships such as these, I might have to look into it. The groud is also a nice touch.
