I have never actually built anything contest-worthy using SNOT techniques. Yeah, I've used a hinge piece here and there, and a headlight or two, but never anything like this. This creation is nothing but SNOT. There are no studs facing up at all anywhere in this thing. Not even in the base.
This is the underside of the creation. As you can see, it's upside-down!
The two parts of the ship seperated: The wings/bottom, and the cockpit/engine.
How I connected the two pieces: those handy blue technic pins.
These are the two sections with the studs facing up.
The main compartment.
Without the brick used to hold the alien in.
With the alien pilot.
The alien pilot secured in. This was a challenge trying to figure out how to keep the pilot in without having any studs facing up fro him to lock into. I cannot explain the blurriness of the picture.
How the two sections connect.
An aerial view. I really like how the shape of this thing turned out. Those angled plates give it a perfect Alien Conquest look and feel.
The alien minifigure I used. Couldn't find his original body, only the hands, so I stuck him on a second-generation Agents body.
This is by far the best spacecraft I have made.
Good luck to the other contestants!

If you could give decimal rating, this one deserves a 4.5. I like how you incorporated a collectable figure into a theme that relates to it. I agree totally with the other judges, there is some place for improvement. Good luck !
