"A Forgotten Place"
My most recent build, a 23rd Century diorama featuring coalition soldiers as well as a cousin walker of one portrayed in concept art by Ian MacDonald, on patrol. Enjoy.
About this creation
Soldier's Log:
Today we were scheduled to patrol one of the many thick forests here on this planet with a VAF-12. So far, no intelligent life has been found, though the ruins state that there once was. The Fleet Lord seems to be even quieter than usual. He looks around quite a bit, then looks at the dirt. It's quiet out here. Peaceful. This place doesn't need to experience any more war, and I hope that it doesn't. Time to move on again...

Log end
------------------------------------------------------




The following seven photos are closer pictures of the whole diorama.
















And now onto the VAF-12. The design is based off of a smaller, grey version of the VAF-13 seen here: VAF-13


























The rifle seen in the diorama:




The rest of the pictures portray some more details of the diorama without figures or the VAF-12. Click them if you wish to view them larger. It's like magic.







Quick Commentary:
First off, thank you for taking the time to read this. Here, have a cookie. If you liked the build, I would very much appreciate it if you could rate it. I believe it is probably my best build to date and I would love to see it be my most popular, or even be my first to make it to the Explore page. Also, the 5th of August marks my 3rd year here on the pages, so....yaaaaay. I may or may not post my up to date sigfig by then, but I have relatives in town today, so I will most likely be fairly inactive for the following week or so. So, I don't make any guarantees. In addition, if you wish to learn more of the 23rd Century theme in general, please see here. Thanks again for stopping by. Stay fresh.


EDIT: This is my first creation to reach the Explore page under both 'Popular This Week' as well as 'Most Discussed', as shown below. So thanks for the support!

VAF-13: Hopelessly under-armed, over-armoured and seemingly always accompanied by Fleet Lords. Fantastic diorama.

An excellent little jungle MOC. Blogged on BrickEnd: http://brickend.blogspot.com/2012/08/a-forgotten-place-by-josh-b.html

Great work with all those plants the muddy path and the ruin. The mech is very well done, too. Only one weapon if I see this correctly. Normally these things are loaded with guns, rockets, nukes, guns ... I like your version. Also, the moc has an interesting atmosphere.

So a HCF-170 and a VAF-12 both walk into a bar and say, "ouch." Unfortunately, the bar didn't survive long enough to respond. Anyways, it seems I'll have to hurry up and finish my SHIP; can't have the Coalition showing us up, you know!

Quoting Armon Russ Amazing! The building has a nice abandoned look to it. Also, the tall plants indicate the area looks very much like it was forgotten. The VAF-13 is expertly built! Great work!
