Very realistic. Best of Luck to you in Round 2. I am looking forward to see what you come up with. I also enjoy all your other MOCs especially your original space stuff because that is my comfort level and what i tend to build.
A great work. That pipe is very realistic and done with regular parts. Very cool! As for the drop it also looks very cool but a bit bigger than it's supposed to be. It looks to me like a balloon that's being attached to the pipe and filled with water :))
I'd expect more from a builder as good as you than just a modified ball. But even if you made it lie this, at least a bigger pipe would help. I'm nitpicking only because I think your standard is so much higher...
Lovely shaping, though the bar may just be a bit too thin for my taste. However still a stunning build and very commendable because of your Iron Builder contest going on at this time as well. Best of luck Tyler!
