M.O. Round 5 - George G. vs Sir Balamorgineas . . George G. vs Sir Balamorgineas in the 2012 MOCOlympics Quarter Final category: "AvP Universe: We’re all familiar with the Alien and Predator movies/comics/novels and so on. Here’s your task, build us something from that Universe. It does NOT have to include an alien or predator (it can if you wish) but it must be something that could be set in that universe. Anything from an Alien Hive to a microscale version of “The Betty” (the pirate ship from Alien: Resurrection). The choice is yours." For this round, me a Sir have taken Alien vs Predator literally, with me building an Alien entry and him building a Predator entry! Up until this round, I'd never watched an Alien or Predator film, so to get inspiration I decided to watch them. I started with Alien and stopped watching after about 15 minutes because I knew what I wanted to build - The USCSS Nostromo! I thought I would build it in Minifigure scale but after some research I realised that wasn't feasible at all, so settled in doing it as big as I could before I ran out light bley plates. I slightly over-estimated hence the dark bley areas. And this certainly wasn't an easy build - the complex angles, 1 metre length and massive weight of this hunk of bricks meant it was incredibly unstable (bringing it downstairs and into the garden was a treat!). Because of it's weight, it just crushed the landing gears I'd built for it, so I quickly decided the only way I could present it un-crashed would be if it were flying, which is where my handy stool came in! Hopefully it doesn't ruin your view of the creation to much. Enjoy the pictures! Why the designer of this ship thought it would be a good idea to make the clamp on the top a heptagon shape, I do not know. Nostromo away! ______________________________________________ Here is the set-up I used for the photography - I hadn't planned on taking pictures in the dark but I didn't realise that the sun went down at 5pm in England at the moment! Here is the reference picture I used for the build, apologies for lots of the little inaccuracies here and there but my collection defeated me at somestages :P Thank you for viewing and good luck Sir!
