Zodiac Abortions

Post by Rook on Tue Apr 20, 2010 3:35 pm

Zodiac Abortion

Yeah so quite regularly I have ideas that just don't work. This is my first attempt of doing Gemini in my Zodiac project but it was just crap. This is good reminder for all of you out there that have built something for a CABG Guild Application and gotten negative feedback about it. It might look great in your mind but once it you put it into brick form it might just look like this. Wink Razz

As I am an inexperienced builder, I would say why did you scrap the idea? But looking at it from another point of view I can see why.

It's guild worthy. Just not Rook worthy. Wink

It looks ok, besides the idea of the minifigures. It looks a lot better then some of mine.

It's not too bad, it could look really good though if you change some of the stuff a bit. Wink

Were you attempting a X-wing style ship? IMO it should look more like two horseshoes touching at the curve. I can see why that could be hard, but, I think, it would look good.

Great ship!! Looks Rook worthy to me!! Razz IDK about the figures though. Looks like they are taking a trip to the swimming pool. Laughing

Keep on bricking. Wink

I'm not sure about your call on this one Dr. I quite like it. It's got some nice angles and colors. I think the bit of blockiness gives it a cool feel. Oh well, thanks for sharing regardless. Smile

Maybe if you had some concept art we could understand what it was supposed to look like. Marine

He did, right up there in his first post (Describes it as a failed Gemini Attempt.)

I, honestly, love the sharp angles this thing gives off, but do see why you canned it.

Libra WIP

Post by Rook on Mon Jul 19, 2010 7:19 pm

Libra WIP


Well I rarely do WIP threads but I've kind hit a roadblock, so I posted what I have.



The "Scales" lock together and I can post a video of that later maybe. But the main issue was the black. Libra being "Justice" or the "Scales" just didn't seem right as black and not having the pieces I wanted has lead me to a different design that I sketched out this morning.

No the battery packs are way too heavy. But it would be cool if Lego would do some actual flight sets.

Alpha's right, black is the colour for justice. You're a RC-reader, aren't you?

Well, it looks really good until now and I think, if you put somehing above the motorss, it'll be black enough.

You got something with motors in the last time, hm? Smile

More aborted versions and parts. I felt this was to big. More like a heavy fighter and I'm trying to build smalled. Also felt it was too boxy.







Finally got to build a little last night and I think I finally have the final version.
