FAILURE IS ANOTHER OPTION
About this creation



One of my small but epic failures in size.

In the following images you can see my helper begin the de-construction of this creation due to the what the overall size could have been.
With the way it was going this star fighter just kept growing. My Helper would have looked like a mini figure by the time I finished and would not have been able to pretend to fly in it. More likely it could have looked like a 3 year old trying to drive a car.
As I began this failure to the time it was dismantled the frame work with out the skin applied weighed 10.25 kilograms and when completed would have ended up measuring 2.89 metres. Could have looked amazing but as usual I would not be able to lift the craft with out many hands.
So it soon all became a pile of elements ready for the reconstruction into a smaller version of.
Hope this brought you a smile or even a good old chuckle.

When I get some assistance and all the new gear to take photos the new creation will some day appear. Have a brilliant time creating and showing the Lego world that you have an amazing mind.

Quoting Stephan Schumann Nice design anyway...i always start the other way around: starting with the microscale version, getting bigger....
Thank you Stephan for the comment. I do like them big. Least now the corrections have been made now just have to get photos taken and edited. Cheers.

Quoting Windsor the forgotten Mage I wouldn’t have been able to do anything nearly as good as this! Great build!

Quoting The Mighty Catduck Mr. Rowntree is right, as he often is about such things. This looks like it would’ve been a cool project

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Very interesting structure. Why not declare victory at this stage? After all, you're in charge.
Thank you Jeremy. Very true a victory was in order for the size it could have become. Just a little too heavy to carry on ones own.

Quoting matt rowntRee Never understood how "failure" was ever deemed as a bad thing. I can't wait to see what evolves from this, I think we learn more from exercises like this than anything else. Hooray failure!
Thank you Matt. I agree FAILURE for me is seen as a learning curve that can be improved on next time. Now the New smaller one is complete lesson learned but huge builds are just as much fun to do. Cheers

Quoting Sam Sanister I wonder what the appeal is for inner hexagonal structure/support... Is it aesthetic? Is it because triangles/hexagons are strong?
Thank you Sam for commenting. All the structure is for strength when it gets picked up so it wont collapse when it rests on one stand.

Quoting Doug Hughes Well that was looking mighty magnificent, it is too bad it got out of scale and out of control! Good luck working on the next iteration :)
Thank you Doug. Was a fun creation to start with. The new one has been completed.
