Thanks for the comment. Come to think of it it does look like a penguin more than a turkey. Unfortunately this peice has been pretty much taken apart aside from a few bits and peices of it floating around in my project bins. Besides, the neck and wings were connected only by a few studs on hinges so it wasn't all that strong. Had it on my shelf for a while and it would fall apart just by looking at it. I do have a fondness for the color scheme and may one day expand on the theme of future NASA craft.
Well thanks everyone for the positive feedback. Looks like I just missed on this one coming 9th in my pool. Still quite pleased with that given that this was my first MOC.
And @Eric W.: you don't have to tell me that turkey is delicious, I'm known to throw the best american thanksgiving this side of Northern Ireland ;)
thanks. the color scheme is supposed to be reminiscent of the space shuttle as it is meant to be a future earth ship transposed into the SW universe. the whole idea of it was to use all my old legos i had as a kid and not touch newer parts liked curved slopes and what not. the intakes were originally the white rings with three grill plates but i wanted to keep them round. the tires were the real eureka moment of the build. thanks for noticing.
