Hey, everyone! Twitch here, and today is my [deleted] birthday! I cannot believe that I am [deleted] years old. Crazy, huh? Today I decided to take you on a brief tour of some of my favorite MOCs in my collection. Shall we begin?
Here I am next to what appears to be a very large foot. Any guesses as to what it is?
If you guessed my favorite MOC ever, Gundam Serenity, then you win the big prize! Which is nothing. Except for going over to Serenity's page and giving her some love. Yes, this is the part where I do some self-advertising. Get over it!
I wonder what these could be?
These are my favorite Mobile Core units, the Liquidator! I really like the story behind my own Mobile Suit universe, and it started with the Mobile Suit predecessor, the Mobile Core unit.
I really like this pose since it shows off how much these can be moved and played with.
I will give you a hint for this. It is my favorite mass-produced Mobile Suit.
Tada! This is the Sylphion Mobile Suit! Sure, this one was just a blend of other people's techniques, but it was really fun to do something different and learn some new things.
Here is the 4-8-4 Emerald Northern locomotive, specifically the 120479 Briana. This was a fun locomotive to build, especially because I love to blend American and European designs.
And now I present a new locomotive, the 2-8-2 Emerald Mikado. Once again this is a blend of American and European designs. How so? Obviously the boiler is European, I get that. The wheel base, the 2-8-2, was highly successful primarily in the United States. The LNER tried a 2-8-2, but only two were built. Their main freight locomotive was the 2-8-0. So I went bigger (as 'Mercins do at times) and made a Mikado. 'Mercuh!
The battery box (the yellow section) and IR Receiver are in the boiler. This is different from my other Emerald Night class designs since the battery and the motor have swapped positions.
And here is the XL Motor! I put it in the tender since it would not fit inside the boiler. As I have stated before, I dislike the setup of the original Emerald Night since the motor takes up all of the space in the cab, taking away some of the playability in my opinion. Since this is a heavy freight locomotive, I used primarily 12-tooth gears, with a 20-tooth gear at the motor to help increase speed slightly.
Another view of the Emerald Mikado. Instructions are provided.
And here is a preview of my redesign of Big Blair. Yep, she is getting an overhaul, both in looks and with internals. She will still be one big steamer, but with my touch of style blending.
So, I hoped that you enjoyed my little tour. Happy birthday to me. What do I get to do today? Go to work! Stupid work... Well, until next time! Twitch out.

Many happy returns, Twitch! One of my favorite thing about your builds is that you really branch out and try a lot of different things. I never know what I'll find when I visit your page!
What would the fun be if I was predictable? Good to hear from you again, too.

Another year gone already, huh? Man, why is time flying by for me now?! I'm not even old yet!
I can now say that I have passed out of my mid-twenties and into the late twenties. By that standard, I am not old. However, I have been in the Army for a WHILE and have multiple deployments under my belt. Going by that, I am in my sixties. Ish. I feel old...
