Real Lego? It's so weird! I know! Anyway, let's see... I built this for Lego's Exoforce contest, in which it placed fourth at best, ie. not at all. (I probably strayed too far from the theme). Its name stems oddly enough from two English words, and is pronounced NOUT-lock: knout, a cat o' nine tails; and loch, a lake. So, like, a lake o' whips. Sounds pretty cool, I think.
The left arm wields a rapid-firing harpoon cannon, with rotating barrel action. Also notice a variety of air filters, the magazine slide protruding from the top and bottom, and the cluster of small tanks near the back.
Side view of the same weapon, showing the large ribbed hose that supplies firing pressure.
Front view, with headlights, pilot, and the turbines large and small which power Knoutloch's various systems.
Rear view of the furnace, which burns onebytwoium as fuel- or just about anything else. The turret is capable of turning 360 degrees on its treaded base.
More furnace. Go ahead and marvel at my terrific use of ball joints, a minifig wineglass, and assorted droideca tubing. This is one of my favorite parts.
And finally, the bunker buster missile armament. Messing around with those two cannons accounts for half of the reason I built the thing.
And that's all my photos! So regardless of how much you liked it, too bad! No more!
Cool name (I like names with meanings and stories behind mocs, beeing a hobby writer) and cool moc, too. I can see it rolling through the gaslit streets, people runnning and screaming, horses balking, while the rain is glistening on its strange metal surfaces... Sorry, I got carried away :)
BTW: I'm the guy from deviantart, finally made it over here:)
I'm definitely liking this MOC: I'm shocked (and pleased) to see it real life lego! It has a spacy steampunk feel to it... kind of reminds me of something John Howe said about going from the industrial age directly into the future.
