MOColympics R3G2 Eggy vs Irish
About this creation
The Raven's Claw
MocOlympics Round 3 Group 2
Category: Microscale
Challenger: Chas Irish




The Raven's Claw was a fast light courier that replaced Kyle Katarn's old ship, Moldy Crow.




The Raven's Claw's design is quite similar to that of the Moldy Crow. It looks more advanced, representing the age of its predecessor and the beginning of a new era for Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors after the Jedi Knight abandoned his powers.

Note that the ship is designed to look like a raven so the front is a bit messier on purpose. see photo : Raven

I'm not an expert in ships and I'm horrible with scale so I'll just use this space to say "It was great talking to you again, and I'll be sure to punch Lee for you." ~Heather

Well, Bryan, as much as it pains me to vindicate Keith, I had to give my vote to your opponent. It was a close call, and I give you credit for venturing outside your comfort zone, but one of the hazards of building a replica is that it’s very apparent when certain design aspects don’t quite make the grade when compared to the rest of the MOC. Specifically, I’m referring to the hull shape which, if you study the reference pic, should feel more svelte in the rear section. You’ve almost got the opposite vibe going on here. Also, it seems the engine cones would have been a simple addition, and the landing gear, which if done well could have been a real selling point, was sort of mailed in. Sorry this was all negatives, because it really is a good build, but the discrepancies were just enough to do it in, IMHO.

Cool! It's pieced together brilliantly, but I do think the engines are missing a cone in the front, and the landing gears' shape could use a little work, but all in all, a pretty awesome build, especially from a castle builder! I do really like Chas' entry too, and I'm split 50/50 here. Good luck with the last judge!

I had to get my head around the scale first, but then it all fell into place. I do really like the engines, but I feel it's missing a cone in the front of them. Other than that, it's a solid build.

I have to agree with Keith on this one. The engines are amazing to be sure, then there is the rest of the ship, which looks simplistic in style. Now you know I love your stuff, but I had to vote for Chas on this one. Up to Brian now. Lee.

Like I just told Chas, this was THE hardest match for me to judge so far! He’s got you EASY when it comes to concept and size. All those little details he added made his build really POP! Then we get to your build. Like I told you before when we chatted, at first glance I thought to myself “Dangit, Eggy mailed it in.” Then I took a closer look and BAM! Everything fell into place. When I first saw the pic of the ship landing in front of the temple, I thought you went and photoshopped it in there! Had to take a double take to see that you were actually just showing us what the ship was supposed to look like. And THAT my friend is what did it for me. Between the engine pods (Phenomenal!) and the closeness of the build to the original, you got my vote! Good luck with the other judges ‘cause like I told Chas… MAN this was close! Like a 49 to 51% split for me. Good luck! ~ Chris.

Quoting Luke Chapman a high majority of "microscale" creations are actually... nanoscale?
Most certainly would. For example Shannonia where a tree is a cylinder.

According to Mr Goldman's definitions of micro and nano scale a high majority of "microscale" creations are actually... nanoscale? An OK spaceship...

Great ship. I especially like the engines.

The engines definitely look great! The landing gear need some more solid work though in reference to the pic. I don't think it would be very difficult for you to do at all. Also I believe the Raven only has 3 landing gear total....the nose and 2 in the rear. You have added a third that looks out of place. Overall looks very good. Good luck in the competition!!

You got some skill with the sci-fi as well, it seems. For the landing gear, do you have any minifig skis? And the body is nice, but does not "bring it home" for me. Your engines are just friggin incredible.

I knew you make great castles, but I didn't know you make great ships too! The engines look really sweet. ~M

Not fair. A castle guy shouldn't be allowed to beat most ship builders on their own ground. Just kidding, it's a fantastic entry and a very good looking ship, well played !

First of all, as a spaceship, I like it! This a very impressive and clean build! Nice details on the main body and the engines. But! It is not accurate enough to the Raven´s Claw. The Claw has no front window, only two windows on each side of the cockpit an one on the roof. Your ship´s neck is in my opinion two studs too wide, compared to the Claw. And I think the rear half of the engines is missing, where this cylindrical structure wrapped in four flat panels comes out (Okay, the screenshots don´t really show this). Even your landing gear could be more ski like. Enough criticism (Sorry, I´ve played Jedi Outcast a little too much)! As I said before, it is a nice ship and I like it. I wish you all the best for this round of the MOColympics

That's really good! Details on the roof like the single studs left uncovered are really nice!

this is just smaller than minifing scale here eggy, ive played all the JK games, and the Raven's Claw only holds 2 side by side in the front, the rest is engines weaps and cargo. not minifig scale but nit exactly micro either.

Just for the other judges and those who are wondering, yeap, this IS microscale in my book. I'll come back and comment again for voting. Quote the Eggy, never more... ~ Chris.

Oh man that rocks! I gotta build something like that now. For a castle guy, you do pretty good on the ship level.

Well I don't like the ship design, but that's not your fault and the ship looks excellent and takes almost no liberties(in this case that a good thing.) The windows are a point of concern but it is very good nonetheless. A very well earned 4/5 and almost (ALMOST) a 5/5. Nice job.

Nice adaptation. I think microscale is too loosely defined for anyone to say what is or isn't micro anymore. GL! see ya. garth

Quoting Gus Indo this isn't quite microscale, is it?
I've been imagining right or wrong that the shuttle seats three/six (one/two persons per window) and only the first third of cockpit would be the pilot. This makes it about 25% of minifig scale.

Great job Eggplant! I've started work on mine last night. It took awhile, but after playing with the pieces long enough, I figured out what I want to make. I'll post my creation near the deadline. Maybe Thursday or Friday.

Great work Bryan! The engines defiantly serve as the main point of attention, and were sculpted beautifully. The frontal end though needs a little shaping. A very solid design, and a huge word of advice. Do not underestimate Irish, your giving him about 6 days to look at this and build something that can beat it. He will do it too, trust me. Good luck. -Dylan
