The Insurrection . . This was a build I did for Simon Liu’s SHIPtember contest on Flickr. If you haven’t been over to see what gems have come out of that contest, I highly recommend you stop looking at this and go see. The competition was stiff and there were some real masterpieces in there. My entry was a SHIP that I call The Insurrection and it came in at 130 studs. This was the battleship that liberated the humans from the Zircan race. If you want to read the whole crazy back story, I have it posted on this entry. The idea behind this contest was to build a SHIP, (100+ studs in length), in a month or less. I made it, but I am not kidding or exaggerating when I say that I posted my entry at 11:59 PM on September 30. I slept for two days and now I’m posting the results here. This contest has kept me away from MOCpages for the past month, but now that I’m not walking circles around a partially built SHIP and cursing at it profusely, broken up occasionally for some quiet weeping in the corner, I am going to try to get a little more active on what remains the best LEGO site on the web. These first shots are because of my addiction to GIMP and putting my spaceships where they belong… …in space…I meant in space. The rest of these are raw shots to show some of the finer details of this MOC, as well as some WIP shots that were not required but appreciated during the building process. Those big guns on top were an ongoing debate with myself over whether to keep them or get rid of them. In the end, I had been staring at them for so long, that when I took them off, the top of the SHIP looked bare. The next few are some closer looks at the details on the bottom. I wanted this SHIP to be complete even underneath. As it is, the bottom may have actually turned out better than the top. These next shots are just some of closer shots of some of the details that I liked best. That white slope is actually a button to activate the light on the next pic. This was an attempt to light the bridge. I see now the limitations of the light brick. I will have to find another solution if I decide to do this again. The rest of these shots are WIPs.
