We always love featuring crazy starfighter designs here on BrickNerd, and you the builders never seem to run out of ideas. SweStar revealed his latest design of a rather large starfighter, incorporating a nice color combination and enough greebles to make any spaceship builder happy. Elegance meets science-fiction designs with this inspiring model.
Andreas Lenander continues to build excellent sci-fi models, the latest being this very starfighter that immediately caught my attention. Just look at those wings, with the incredible angles and the colors that grab your eyes' focus. There's so much subtle detailing in this model, which allows the ship to be sleek and greebly at the same time -- a rare combo.
Many builders bring new designs, techniques, and styles forward in order to create incredible spaceships that look out of this world. No matter how cool they can be, sometimes it's nice to see a retro space build that brings things back down to Earth (so to speak). Boone Builds took the Retro Spacemen minifig from the 17th Collectible Minifigure Series as a source of inspiration to create this rad rocketship sporting some nice colors, sleek curvature, and powerful looking thrusters. I also really appreciate that Boone proves to us that you can swoosh this awesome spaceship. What do you guys think? Are you ready to try your hand at building some retro space models?!
When it comes to building starfighters these days, the stranger the better, as demonstrated here by dark-purple fan Chris Perron. Thanks to LEGO's Nexo Knights series, we have had several new curved elements introduced to the ever growing collection of our favorite plastic pieces. Several newer parts are used throughout this spacecraft, for example the dark purple curved panel elements that work miraculously well as...well...panels on this ship's body. Another great and unique starfighter to showcase here on BrickNerd, and I can't wait to see some more designs from Chris in the future!
Tim Goddard unleashes this new classic space starfighter on the galaxy! Check out the engine detailing in the rear, the greebling on the wings, and the smooth integration of the cockpit into the main body of the spaceship. Every year, we see more and more crazy spaceship designs using the classic theme that LEGO did years ago. Builders like Tim are doing a fabulous job at keeping this theme alive today.
Another SHIPtember has gone by, once again full of incredible sci-fi spaceSHIPs! The 5th annual contest produced some of the best SHIP's Flickr has yet to see. With each design being 100 studs long or more, they all are leaving an impact on SHIP builders for the future.
Until next year's amazing space contest, enjoy these highlights picked out by your favorite BrickNerd members!
