Samus' Ship from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
My Lego version of the gunship Samus used on the Wii game Metroid Prime 3: Corruption by Nintendoís Retro Studios.
About this creation
This is my first real MOC where I took some time to plan and design ahead of time. My objectives were to make it as visually close to the game as possible but also keeping it functional and sturdy.

I designed it first in the Lego Digital Designer which took some time to learn (Iím somewhat familiar with 3D software but the controls on this one are not very standard).

After finishing the design (took some days since I have a full-time job), I went to bricklink.com to find the pieces. Being a noob at this I got the little surprise of not being able to find all the pieces I needed. I went back and forth redesigning and consulting with bricklink.com. I ended up ordering pieces from 3 different places (which went pretty smooth in general).
My messy desk as Iím building it and referencing my design on my compuper :

Once I ended up putting the whole thing together the inevitable happened: it wasn't sturdy enough. Good thing I kinda saw it coming and order a whole bunch of different hinges as alternatives for the moving parts.

Finally Samus is happily ready for take-off:
