Hey, you lovely, Lego-building, bunch of wonderful MOCpagers!
This is a last build before I head out on a missions trip, so you probably won't hear much from me in the next couple of months.
This build came about as I was dismantling my "Battle at the Reactor" creation. Something about that top tri-connection caught my attention and I preserved the base of it since I thought that I could do something else really cool with it. It became the starting point of this starcraft (I'm not sure exactly what else to call it) and is found just behind the six black fins at the front of the creation.
From there, it obviously ended up being a tack-on-everything-that-I-can-think-of kind of build with not much of a rhyme or reason except for the central tri/hex point construction that gets highlighted with big ol' fins.
The name is simply my use of an awesome star's name combined with a spoof of "The Spirit of St. Louis". Except this, of course, is interstellar in nature ;)
On to the pics!
Honestly, I almost made this the main pic. That skylight above helped accentuate the transy green pieces and even created a slight rainbow effect to make this thing more dramatic. Cool beans.
This is probably the best picture of the whole thing.
Some of the details:
One of the first fin connection points that I added to the build. The gray pieces came together pretty well, I'm just sad that I couldn't keep that kind of coherency going throughout the whole build.
Why did I add scorpions, you ask? Well, the answer is two-fold. First, my last shipment of Lego included three of them, and because my three-thing theme was at play here, I decided to incorporate them. Secondly, Antares is in the Scorpius constellation. Sure, maybe I didn't know that before I added them, but it worked out nicely, did it not? ;)
This flower-esque back end was pretty cool, if I do say so myself (which I just did, so don't laugh). Transy green FTW.

Here are some shadow shots that, again, highlight the transy green (wonder how many more times I can use that term in this post ;) ) and the myriad of angles and seemingly random extensions.
That's it, folks! We'll see you on the other side.
Meanwhile, enjoy your Summer and don't forget to brush your teeth!
Wait, people still brush their TEETH?? *mindblown*
Spectacular job as always! The trans lime green and odd shape really give the model an alien technology look, a concept which I love try to incorporate into MOCs. Keep up the great work!
