The sister to the scarlet firefly, this MOC was built as a hunter tracker walker/mech, with the same canopy arrangement (built from classic town windscreens inverted). The SNOT build worked out well, as is best seen on the underside of the cab. Also I am quite happy with the 'fat' stinger missiles.
Thanks Tim, Marshall and Jon, these are such great comments. I've started to find that a style is developing out of my specific element set. A week or so back I thought about investing in some smart new canopy/windshield parts, but now I'm starting to look at some older pieces and think about alternative uses. Come Easter, when I have a few pounds to spend on Lego, I'll be making an order - so I hope to have some examples of these ideas up then. In the meantime I've been working on a base (space refinery) using these same limited pieces - its a stretch. I've used the pod casing this dino mini set came in (http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=4418-1), as I think it reflects the dual windshield motif in circular form. Fingers crossed I'll get some images up by the weekend. Thanks again guys, and I'm so glad you like what I'm doing, it means a lot when it comes from expert builders like you.
Awesome support mech for the Scarlet Firefly. Now that's what I'm talking about David!
@Tim C [Tim, that reveals how cool David's imagination really is. I'm really glad someone else has noticed too, David's talent and unlimited potential.] Keep at it David!
I can't believe nobody has commented yet. I like this mech. I like your ability to make impressive MOCs while using a low number of pieces. I also like how you are taking such an uninteresting windshield and making it so striking. Nice work.
