Peter, I hope you don't mind me starting a thread. You had mentioned the bottom building on my MOC the other day. Are you familiar with the cheese wedge technique? Its one of many things I wish I would of known relating to being able to build on multiple sides(SNOT???). I know I've seen a tutorial on MOCPAGES...but i can't find it, Boo! Anyway, hopefully people can understand this. You need 1 plate at least 2x2, 1 brick of equal size, at least 2 cheese wedges. Follow these steps to have a nice bum. Take your plate and flip it over, bottoms up. take your cheese wedges and secure them in the corners, perpindicular to the top. Now, take the plate with the cheese wedges, and stick that into the bottom of the brick, if it's right you shouldn't force it. That should give you a nice secure brick 4 plates in height with studs on 2 sides, very useful. While looking for that I came across this, which I've never used/seen before, but it looks useful.

I also have a growing collection of travis bricks which is helping me do that.

I couldn't quite tell what was used to connect those two 4X6 plates? Robot arms? I've used the old fashioned hinge pieces flipped before, but this looks promising!

I've recently found a neat group on Flickr that, if you can filter through the nonsense, has a lot of ideas.

EDIT: Hey, Ced, I think I've found a picture of what you were mentioning earlier.

There it is, much better! Thanks Matt. That one has been good to me, I was using the short Technic pins when I started doing that, not so sturdy.
