My extreme apologies for my recent lack of presence-I assure you, it wasn't intentional. Due to my recent pile up old or unfinished MOCs, I have decided to create this hopefully successful line of MOCs (MDF stands for Magistrate (Blacktron head AI system controller) Data Files) so that I no longer have to worry about them. Shall we?
About this creation
One of the many abandonment ports for the Old Earth Empire. You see that the diagram is divided in two-one is the take-off station for the rich and powerful and the other is cut by a wall and is one of many of the slums (I won't delve too much into it, but I'll hopefully be able to find a space for it in my book).
Basically, 65% of the population were placed in slums (being poor conditions even for slums) for various reasons. These slums covered miles and miles of land mass across Earth and the people placed in them were cut off from the rest of the world and never heard from again. No files were kept, no one talked about someone anymore if they were in the slums (unless they wanted to be with their friend). The areas were mainly desert, and were left to fend for themselves. If they were lucky, they'd be placed where an old military compound stood (remnants from the Old Earth Republic) like this one.
The once glorious Republic days were well-aware of their heroes, in the center of this compound is a crumbling statue of one of these heroes. The reason the abandonment stations were built so close to the slum borderlines was because of all of the spread propaganda and fear, the rich enjoyed laughing and teasing the people left in the slums forever when the powerful were blasted off of Earth's crust in first-class seats with champagne.
A small water source and a few other buildings, another statue and a few exhausts from the cities. The people in this slum were not only fortunete to find a compound, but to recieve their own water source (usually in the desert slums the government would spray the whole slums with water every few weeks otherwise).
Here you can see my lack pieces and patience with building wall that in real-life would be 300 meters tall and designed to stop most bombings. Basically what I did was look in my "unused pick-a-brick" box (yes, I have a box for that (the technical term is "dumping in the closest box of LEGO") and yes, there are occasions when I amazingly don't use all of my PAB pieces within the hour that I bought them in), used all of the pieces I had in it and created this whole diorama like that. The ship is another story which I'll explain later.
Fuel cells. I liked this design so much I think I'm going to use them later on. And if you write that someone else came up with is already in the comments, SCREW YOU!
This is how much I love this design and color scheme... I love it so much that I'm going to add another shot! I almost wrote OMGZ at the end of that sentence... Almost.
An Octan fueling station is just something you HAVE to have in a MOC set roughly 50 years in the future. Everyone knows that.
I am very proud to present my first-ever Alternate! If you can guess which set, you earn five points. I'm actually very happy with the way it turned out. The original plan was take apart the Ferris Wheel (oops) and create a ship. That done and still having about half of the pieces left, I decided to create a diorama for the ship. Since that failed epically, I resorted to Pick-A-Brick, your friend around the corner... Or in my case, in the next bordering country. I feel I should say though that I was greatly inspired by David McDonald's Chrion .
The front, as usual comes first. This is the main cockpit, put simply. I was thinking about building minifig-scale bridges and all that jazz but I can't bother (actually, it's more of a tempoary piece restriction).
Moving on, we have, what the personnel call "The Top Spiral". It's where the richest of the richest and the most powerful of the powerful (who didn't own space yachts) sat. It also contains a few restuarants, bars, even a few stores.
Here is a view of the main sitting rooms and where the people stay for most of their trip. Sometimes, if your lucky, the flight controllers open up the armour plating (pirate defense) and you can get a beautiful view of space. Quite relaxing. I don't know about you guys, but if I couldn't sleep, I'd probably be problem-solved with a fiew like that. Sounds great to me. Let's continue!
The secondary cockpit and the main bridge. It's also where the engines are monitored and kept in check. It's also where the captain sits. Basically, all the technical and computerized stuff happens. Parents are also free to pay a little extra in order for the child to be let up to the main bridge or the cockpit to make them feel special. Before you ask, no, the LIU did not exist back then.
The back of the bridge and power engines. You can see clip-ons that are used to add either more of the facilities, modular storage or extra engines. further down you see the main engines.
Here you can see a few of the starboard planetary stabilizers. Not much else to say about those. And sorry for the bad showing of this MOC, I really just want to take it apart as soon as possible.
Upside down look of the engines. I know it looks terrible underneath, but like I said, I had limited part usage. And for some reason I just noticed that the bottom is not symmetrical.
Since the other shot must've been of it's ass, what's this shot of?
Poll: What is the last photo of, body-wise (sorry for not having a poll last time)?
Well, that's all for now, I hope to upload the next Relic sometime next week or tomorrow. How exciting!
