Micro modulars: gotta love 'em. This was a lot, and I mean A LOT of fun to build.
About this creation
Built over three sessions, this definitely makes me want to do more but I think I'll try to keep it simpler next time, making the adjustments to connect the SNOT with only two plates in between, and all the plate levels with two-and-a-half plates in between was quite taxing but rewarding finding different solutions.
The black base is just a 'ring' that slips off. There real 8x8 base has technic bricks for modular style connecting.
