I was trying to pull off this wooden ship kind of look when building the other day, but I gave up. This thing looks really sweet. The barrels with the axel connectors are fantastic. I feel perhaps the reds a bit lost in it though. I'm not certain, but I'd be interested to see what it would be like if the trans red was replaced with something like trans blue or green. Wish I had these kind of skills when it comes to making system ships though. Or that many barrels.
Which red, the red on the stickers, or the trans-red glowing panels? Unfortunately, I do not have comparable glowing bits in those colors. But they do match the cockpit, which was what I intended, so perhaps other colors might look more out of place.
The barrels came in a Pick-a-Brick cup, actually, as did most of the sand-brown. I do appreciate your comment, but if you're looking for someone with true skill in making System starships, Nannan Z's your man. I'm just a beginner in this after so many years of making stuff with Technic. :blush:
The shaping on this looks very nice, and the use of barrels for guns in ingenious.
Thanks! I like the barrels too; they make good engine thrusters and gun barrels.
