Operation Bruticus Orbital Shuttle

Postby wintermute » Tue Jan 22, 2013 1:55 pm

Built myself a little shuttle craft and mobile launch platform.
It needed some friends so I built a couple of Fire Control & Rescue units based on the venerable chub frame:

Freaking brilliant! :o Nice builds all around. I would even suggest you enter those FCR frames in the Support Frame Contest. :)

EDIT: :oops: Just glanced through the Flickr submission thread and I saw you already submitted them. Good luck!

I don't know if this will be taken as a compliment (I assure you it is intended to be one), but I honestly think this doesn't look like regular lego any more. It looks more like a toy that you can buy at a store as a whole. Like a micro machines playset or something similar. I'm just humbled by the level of detail and parts usage on this one. It is absolutely brilliantly executed.

I seriously thought that was an official set at first and I was all like, "man I need to buy that for a station!" Bravo sir, bravo indeed.

Nimbus: The small nozzles are a megabloks part and quite common I believe. The big one is from the same BTR set as the shuttle fuselage parts. I have no idea of parts numbers or anything like that. Also fair warning: I did dremel off a chunk of the two parts towards the back of the shuttle to remove the Autobot symbols and make the parts work for my purposes.

Everybody else: Thanks for the praise guys! Always nice to hear those who actually game with this stuff appreciate it. And having peeps think the stuff isn't lego is the best kind of flattery. I was definitely going for an eighties playset type vibe with this guy and glad it shows through the brick.
