The Aether (TFOMC)
My entry to The First Official Moccer Cup...
About this creation
This is my entry for The First Official Moccer Cup (TFOMC 2012). I'm in the beginner category, and I've built a one-man (er...pilot) fighter. I don't really know how much I'm supposed to say since this is a contest creation, but I like giving a little background to my creations, so I guess I'll post like normal.

Before any of my loyal fans ask, (all three of you), I didn't really go with the yellow and black color scheme for any particular reason. I know I did my Gate Fighter that way, but this was a purely random coincidence. Nonetheless, I like the color scheme...it could become my signature thing. So, anyway, let's start out with an isometric pic:



This idea originally started out as some sort of mech using those arms you see in the connection between the engine and the cockpit. Unfortunately, I have no experience with mechs except for a couple of exo-force battle suits, so it was turning out less-than-amazing. I decided to start work on the cockpit and designed something similar to this one, but it was held vertical for the mech. As progress developed, I eventually just decided to throw in the towel and stick with something I knew how to do: starfighters. I knew I wanted to keep the cockpit, and the first thing I did was get a better pilot minifig:



Previously I had been using a racecar driver and he wasn't cutting it. Once I had my pilot, I was now left with a metal box with no way to move. So I went to work on the engine. I had been wanting to do an asymmetrical starfighter for a while now and thought I would experiment with it. As we all know, asymmetrical starfighters need really big engines, so I turned to my wheel collection and pulled out the biggest I had. These yellow wheels actually came from a technic frontloader and they happened to be in yellow, further securing my yellow and black colors.



From there I decided to use some of the pieces from my mech earlier and built a connection between the engine and the cockpit:



A few edits here and there, and presto! We have one unique, asymmetrical starfighter! A couple more pics:







That pretty much concludes the Aether. I'm also supposed to link back to the contest , so please check it out.
