V-wing

Post by Funky Cow on Mon Apr 13, 2009 11:50 pm

This is my entry for aMOCican Idol. It has a bottom to it but I forgot to get pictures of it. I know the engines could be better but I couldn't find any thing so I did my best.

Well the set was fairly accurate. I actually saw that it was a lot like it so I tried to change it. Embarassed

Great job with the design and the details! Took another closer look and Zeph was right about it not being so similar.

Very nice! It's detailed, and looks very correct. The greebs are full one, and the shape is nice.

As for it looking at all like the TLC model, your obviously just trying to make up stuff to bust your post count. It looks almost nothing like the TLC model, and reuses almostzero of the techniques found in the TLC model.

Nice work!

I really like this model, and the details are great, except for one big thing: The 'wings' don't fold up and down like in the TLC model. They are either in the full upright position, or they are all the way forward, facing the direction that the nose does. Smile

Oooh a bigger scale, with more angles and wedge pieces. I'm diggin the front angles and the back engine parts. I do hope that you've created this new model so you can take out and put in a full R2 model?

Nice! This is one of the best V-Wings I've seen so far! There's one thing that disturbs me though: That 2x4 dark gray plate on the wings. Think you can change that?

Yes - it does look like TLC.

Yes - it is a WONDERFUL mod of it.

This is much more to accuracy than the piece of crap they came out with. Bulkier, more substantial, and aside from a few flaws around your guns, a bit more aesthetically pleasing Wink .

However, you will find a knife in your bed because you didn't properly mix old grey and new grey, or you did not not use it at all Razz !

The one on the circular piece? If so would you want me to change it to a light grey.

Yes, light grey would be better. Or if you used the same type of dark grey as the wings.

Why not? It looks like he could probably fit a unit in there.

I absolutely disagree! Razz

Really, it looks great. It has that sorta UCS feeling to it, with the upper and lower leveling of the plates and I really love that, but the engine area is awesome as well.

The wings are far too small as well, though, and that old dk. grey 2x4 is killing it. Wow this thing looks'oh:
