SFC Round#1 Entry, and entry to the War of the Worlds Contest
“A monstrous tripod, higher than many houses, Striding over the young pine trees…”
About this creation
Okay, so the images here look terrible, go here:

For better images

“A walking engine of glittering metal…”

"Its headlike hood turning about exactly like the head of a cowled human being."

"...each carrying a thick black tube..." The tube that launches canisters of Black Smoke

"Heat Ray wide and free"

The martian, barely visible within the hood of the machine.

"Articulated ropes of steel"

The basket for catching Humans

An interesting little joint for the legs

Top down

With the Narrator

Demonstrating the levels of flexibility and stability of the tripod design

Closer look at the "complicated metal case"

Cage fits a human

Rear view

"In time to receive, but not in time to dodge, the fourth shell"

The crashed fighting machine

"Ulla, Ulla, Ulla..."

The Narrrator

On Primrose Hill, with the "great Fighting Machine that would fight no more forever"

6th Surface
WOOOOOOOOHHHHOOOOOOOOO! YES! This is great! I have built a Martian Fighting Machine, based on the description in the book and my own concept sketch. I hope you like it, and I hope the judges judge it kindly.

Quoting Achintya Prasad Mind you, I still like the creation, I just feel that such a, monstrous, and dangerous machine could use some greebles!
Hmm. Okay. I'll see what I can do.

Quoting Achintya Prasad Hmm, not bad. I feel that the legs could use some greebles, considering the scale and size of this thing. The MOC looks nice, but the legs, without those greebles, just seem like skeletons. Otherwise, though, 5/5
Mmm. Okay. I went for a skeletal look, becasue they were transported in relatively small cylinders. Okay. In future versions, I'll see if I can incorporate some greebles

Quoting Alex Sonny Looks awesome, but the legs could use a bit of refinement. The hood is really good though. Oh and when you upload very tall images store them at a third party and then incorporate them through HTML into the site. You might as well put in the Flickr images
I've uploaded them on Flickr, how do I incorporate them through HTML?

Thanks! It's my fifth attempt at a fighting machine. I'm just a little annoyed at how the uploader has distorted the images
