Hello, BZP! You may remember me, but most likely not because I haven't been active on here for months and I don't actually post a bunch of MoCs like I say I will. My entry for the BBCC contest is the Kahu. For some reason, it's one of the most memorable things in the MNOG for me, and it's one of my favorite Rahi, so when I saw the theme for this contest I thought it would be cool to make my own version.
I tried to give it the somewhat frail and skeleton-ey look of the old Rahi without making it look too unfinished. I also made it look similar to the older Rahi by putting a mask on its back. Even though the Kahu wasn't one of the Rahi with infected masks, I added one because I liked the idea of the Rahi having masks. The wings aren't 'filled in' because I wanted to keep it similar the the original Kahu, which in the MNOG had kind of skeleton wings that generated lasers to fill in the gaps when it flew. That's way cooler than actual wings anyway, right? Lastly, my favorite part of the MoC: it has the mouth-opening function of the original Kahu model but it works with gears rather than rubber bands.
Comments and (constructive) criticism are greatly appreciated!
