When I first set eyes on this year's Creator sets (especially the Mechs).. I
know I'm gonna have a great time with them. For Set 31008 Thunder Wings... the
official mech is pretty plain . I was surprised to find out it only utilise
merely 60-70% of the parts from the whole set. Anyway.... it's time for me to
build my own...
I would want to announce that all parts from the set were used up for this
MOC.. but I just can't be sure (I think one or two tiny parts rolled out of
my sight and under the sofa while my building took place =P )
Due to limited number of adequate parts, I practiced "conservative" building
here. This means the parts/bricks were connected at a very minimal manner
(some gaps here and there). This proves to be pretty frustrating as the
lower legs kept falling apart during constructions. So I can't say I was
having a genuinely fun moment.
Do visit my blog after a week or so to view the instructions for this mech.
What a great looking alternate! It's always difficult to make something stand on 2 legs, especially when they are this long. Did you know there is a special group on MOCpages called: Alternate designs of a Creator? This would be a very nice addition.
