Frame Chef: April 2014

Postby Mantisking » Tue Apr 01, 2014 7:25 am

Welcome to the next installation of Frame Chef, a monthly "contest" to build Mobile Frame Zero frames (or other MFØ creations) based on a "secret ingredient" (a specific LEGO™ part or set of parts) that will change each month.

The Rules
  • Build a frame (or other MFØ creation) that makes essential, extensive and/or innovative use of the secret ingredient parts.
  • Create a new post in the appropriate sub-forum (e.g. "Frame Design" for frames, "Vehicle Design" for vehicles, etc) to showcase your build, just as you would for any other creation.
  • Do not mention Frame Chef in the title of your post. Instead name the creation like usual. If you want to mention Frame Chef in the initial post of the thread, go ahead, but this is not required. (The idea here is that your creation may go on to have a life far beyond Frame Chef, so no point in tying it down.)
  • Your post can contain photos of brick builds, LDraw files, etc. Instructions or breakdowns always welcome.
  • Add a link to your post in this month's Frame Chef thread (i.e. this one). Do not post creations directly to this thread.
  • Make sure to specify usage restrictions about your creations in the first post. It is recommended you use the same Creative Commons license that Mobile Frame Zero does.
  • At the end of the month, this thread will close and a new thread, with a new secret ingredient will begin.

The Prize
Since the whole point of this is really just to help stoke the creative fires, there doesn't seem to be much of a point in naming a "winner". If people really scream for one, we'll figure something out, but the point is really just to do something not all that serious.

So, without further ado, Chairman Mofo will now reveal the secret ingredient for this month:

I'll see what I can do. I was thinking some sort of tracked vehicle though.

They're essentially the same.

My entry, also something I've been meaning to do for a long time.

You almost can't see them in your build.

Nice. It's a very interesting concept. I'd like to see it in the brick at some point.

Here is my first entry into the illustrious Frame Chef contest! I had a lot of fun and it has encouraged me to try the single set challenge next time I purchase a set.

My offering. I had two more ideas but I never managed to brick them up.
