Round two gives us a fairly small ship, whose sides are completely SNOT...
About this creation
Well, here we go again...
This time, I selected a simple model. This model is notable because it was the first model I used SNOT in. I still think it's one of the more swooshable models in my collection.
My photography skills have slightly improved, but my computer hasn't. I guess the maximum amount of photos I can upload at a single time is four. Still, I managed to select the better of the photos. If anyone has anything to say that will help, I would be very grateful. For now, enjoy the photos.
The back. The front pic is the main photo, and I'm limited to three photos in the main body. I apologize. Notice the engine blocks in the thrusters. They're held in simply by friction.
The bottom. This whole model is built up from a 4x8 plate. Those megaphone things are side thrusters that aid the ship in turns. This is crucial in space, as the wings are useless when there is no air.
And here is the construction shot. It looks easy, but in order to line up the SNOT parts with the sides of the vehicle, I had to use a combination of plates and blocks to get it all together. The hinge plate on the rear is there because of the excess siding that would protrude from the rear.
Questions? Comments? Any way I can make it better? I would love to hear what you have to say. The construction shot gives you most of the know-how to build the ship.
More pictures will come, as soon as I can figure out how to upload in a larger quantity...
Whew! For a moment I thought this thing was so small that it didn't pick up on radar! Thanks for the comment. It follows the Law of Parsimony, as in the simplest answer is the best answer. Once again, thank you for your time.
thanks for adding me to your favourite builders :)
I really like this ship - it's not because something is small and doesn't have a million bits that it can't be good - the overall shape and design is really, really good !
To me, it looks exactly lmike the kind of thing they might have come up with in a concept design for star wars !
Keep up the good work, this looks promising ! (your other ship's good, too !)
