Blood Wake!!

Postby MTronHeroKodiak » Tue Oct 11, 2011 1:23 am

I know I said I would post some pictures of my wip SHIP.
It is based on M:Tron theme.
I will not be posting any full view pictures, untill closer to completion.
I have a flicker account but dont know the password and prefer to host my pictures on my website as I have more control over them that way.
I hope to take this to bricks by the bay. It has been a year in the making at half way done so far, due to budget and time contraints.
I made it minfig accessable but not to scale. As when I started I didn't research that part. But there is playability with lowering ramps, elevators, moving weapons, and battle damage parts that come off. I also have lights and a rotating radar assembly.
C&C welcome of course, dispite I am not giving a full view yet. I will once it is closer to completion.

(this is a double post I had typed like double this and somehow I lost it all...bleh)

I named it Bloodwake. It is 147 studs long and about 38 wide not including the wings.

http://www.badlandsoftorkrestlarp.org/pics/bw/DSCN1531.jpg This is a picture of one of the laser cannons that are retractable into the main hull.

http://www.badlandsoftorkrestlarp.org/pics/bw/DSCN1706.jpg Here is a crewman on the upper level scanning the skies with some basic viewfinders. Sometimes passive visual scanning is just as good. You can see my attempt at a sphere using 2x2 trans neon green discs.

Enjoy.

It looks like a fortress. Where are all the magnets?

I haven't added many magnets yet. But soon. I'm on the process of building it structurally first, then adding more details later. But they will be there!


The Sphere, I am looking for it but will have to continue to look for it on flicker after lunch. I have the picture, but I want to make sure I give credit.

Looking forward seeing some more.

And yes, magnets are a priority 1 essential... :P

Yes I am a big fan of lego figure point of views. I tend to do a lot of pictures that way. Sorry for the papers in the background behind the monorail :oops: But I plan to have more pictures soon.

Yes I went through many different ideas and what not to make this. This one came out the best so far. I will post some more current pictures and some video with the playability.
Glad you like it. there is a lot on this ship I am happy with, and a lot I am not...thanks for the comments
