The "Sunfire" COMM ship is essentially a giant, manned, satellite. This ship relays transmissions throughout the universe. When it comes time for the ship to return to a spaceport for resupplying, Her sister-ship The Moonshine, takes over her duties.
How do you celebrate the end of three non-stop months of building? Build some more, of coarse!
This one was completely inspired by the awesome new pieces I got in the Atlantis Exploration HQ. I got the set from Chris Phipson for winning second in the 2011 MocOlympics. There was quite a few pieces in that set that I didn't have prior to receiving it. So, I've spent a few days experimenting with said pieces, and this is what came out of that experimenting. Not too shabby!
I love the deceptive simplicity of your build. It looks so simple from a distance but the expertly crafted true detail is noticeable up-close. I admire that ability as I don't have it. If you have a free moment, could you give me some advice on my Flying Rhino?
You're more than welcome and Congrats on such a great showing in the Olympics! Glad to see those parts are going to good use. Great ship/satalite here. Time to start thinking about your MocAthalon team now ;) ~ Chris.
