Sci-Fi guy ska2d2 has returned to minifig scale with this nifty rig. You may recall his micro fleet posted back in December. What I like about RED3 is there's no pretense of aerodynamics. Bulky and practical, no frills save the black and yellow checker details. Scroll through the photostream to see some nice up-close shots, like the retractable cockpit action. And good luck finding an exposed stud on this baby. I couldn't.
We all scream for this wonderful ice cream MOC by shfio. The studs out SNOT construction of this delicately swirled ABS treat are a wonder to behold. We've all seen builds of this type before, but the fact that it not only swirls upward but also diminishes as it goes up sort of blows my mind. It's like a brain freeze, without all the calories.
I recall many Christmases from my childhood, some more vividly than others. One in particular was a good year, in addition to my Planet of the Apes Treehouse and cool art easel, me and my brother both got football uniforms. Neither of us were particularly into football but what kid doesn't want to armor up and ransack the house? I got Rams, my brother got 49ers... Sorry, it's Christmas eve and this MOC reminded me of that. Speaking of which, HOLY COW LOOK AT THIS THING! This is one of the finest examples of brick-built logo and lettering I've ever seen. Builder Tobias Buckdahn also did a time lapse of the build, you can bet I'll be watching this over and over.
