A quick "instructions" post to answer some questions, since this topic came out in Phipp's Maclontent as well as in my Galamoth.
About this creation
So, if you're as technically challenged as I am, but you want a cool looking nanoscale space ship, don't worry.
All you have to do is build some randomly-shaped sections out of bricks and slopes (remember to keep some open slots on the sides for the weapons) and connect them with technic pins.
Try arranging them in different order until you're satisfied with the result, then reinforce the connection with a few plates to achieve optimal swooshability.
Then, you can add details or even other structures on the top, and add smaller vessels to help "scale it up", so it will really look bigger.
That's how I made the Galamoth, if you wish to take a look at the final product. As you can see, the hull is not at all boring even without greebles or cool coloring.
Other builders build in sections too, but they plan carefully each one :)
I like all those builds that achieve maximum result with minimum effort.
I hope this can help or at least interest you :)
This is a great idea. I was just thinking about this after building the vic viper I tried. It was just stacking and not very sturdy. Build in modules like the official sets use was what I was thinking after I got done building That makes everything stay together better. You've just added another interesting idea to the mix. thanks man, see ya. garth
The ship itself is fantastic (love the "head" and the city-like area on top!) but the concept behind it's construction is really clever Yuri. It would be interesting to see how many ship combinations could be arranged from the one set of shapes. Great stuff!
Ahhh! Typical left field approach. Reminds me of some micro machines I had as a wee lad... if any one remembers the modular micro machines comment me!!! Sorry, typically changing the subject to myslef! Really cool technique.
Is this large mask in front of the ship Lego? And if, what set is it from?? Thanks for helping; and I always appreciate your style. Cool, massive, nightmarish. You use different Lego part families as if they were meant to be used together. Thats a task and inspiring.
