The Triple T Challenge

Postby MittenNinja » Fri Jun 22, 2012 11:42 pm

While discussing growth of building techniques on the IRC with Soren, I thought it would be fun to try building a frame without using three of the common "T" pieces in frame building. No Travis Bricks, No Taps, No T-pieces. Everything else is allowed! Simple right?

I encourage you all to attempt this along with me and see what you can come up with! Please post your results here!

My Dissident Ecclesiarch was my personal challenge with this (mostly due to not having many of the "T-pieces" to spare for it!), so I'll leave it here while I whip something new up for the fun of it:

The variant with the Glaive I made later ended up adding 1 Travis brick for the bottom piece, but the base frame has zero "T-pieces".

And here is my Triple T Challenge frame, the RT-06 Bullfrog. Zero Travis, zero Taps, zero T-pieces.

The Bullfrog is gorgeous! I love the autocannon and sensor or ammo storage on the opposite side, and the asymetry of it. The Ecclisarch is also nice--very intimidating.

My Anvil frame doesn't use any of those parts. Because didn't have any at the time I made it. It does use one motor brick which is kind of like a travis brick.

I'll probably make something else for the challenge as well.

My technic frames all fit the bill, but I'll try to cook up a system frame with no "T" pieces.

Made for this thread, but I might try to work it into a company. I'll inevitably fall off the wagon and give it tap ankles.

Sucker Punch and the base Tomcat frame use none of the Tripple T's

Nice idea for a challenge.

If it weren't for the fact that I used all my 1x1 round bricks in the rest of the frame, my Condor wouldn't have any Travis bricks in it, and it already has no taps or t-pieces.

SO CLOSE.

Yeah that Viking is trick.

Mind showing off how you built it? Can't quite see how the shoulders are done.
