For now, all I can display are MOCs I built prior to the dark ages! All these models are built roughly between 2001 and 2004. They encompass ideals developed during the latter portion of my primary, foundational era.
Pieces were sure limited back then and the turnover was quick. No sooner did I finish one model in one or two colors then I was doing something else TRYING to use another color. A lot of good red pieces are used on the Copperhead, while some black is used on a CLK-GTR, some white on an Integra "tuner", a TON OF GRAY is used and more red too! Those were good pieces for me back then since they had a lot of variety. Oh and more black and white, and more gray!!

I was lucky enough to receive a few of the "then-new" Star Wars sets as gifts, most notably the original X-Wing! That's where I got a few of those "then-new" click-hinges >:D!
In original gray no less! whoop! after that, I built one of my absolute most favorite ships from the SW:Extended Universe (using most of my available remaining pieces). I'm a fan of smugglers and transports, people earning their way through the galaxy, so in Minifig-scale it was a natural progression. The X-Wing was gone as comparison, but its spirit helped to spur another generation.
Not to mention, a true LEGO Gundam model. . .
