MO R2: Halhi 141 vs General X
Looks good enough to eat: Build a Lego meal (one to one scale). What's your favorite food?
About this creation
For Round 2 of the 2013 MocOlympics.
My opponent is General X.



Sushi plate. Looks tasty!





Sushi plate again.





Another picture of the sushi. But what's that in the corner...?





View of the entire meal.





It was pretty difficult choosing the various foods used in this meal, since most Japanese dishes require a lot of rare colors that would be difficult to replicate.





Futomaki. Keeping the round shape on the treads was difficult. I ended up using this piece to maintain the shape.




Assorted sushi. Same problem with these, to get the round shape, I used this for one piece of sushi, and this for the other two. Note that the newer mold of the latter won't work, the old mold has a ring around the top that allows the tread links to stay in place.





Wasabi.




The Gyudon was pretty tricky to make. While it may look simple, it was quite difficult to place all of the rare-ish dark tan pieces to get the right texture and fill in all of the gaps. Like in the sushi, the rice was pretty challenging. It's composed mainly of some upside down white plates, with some small loose pieces by the edges to get the right texture.




The above view nicely shows some of the tricky angles in the gyudon. Not all of it is loose pieces either, there's actually quite a bit of studded connections in there.





An above view of the entire meal.


Thanks for viewing!

I've never tried Sushi, but this MOC makes me want to try it sometime. The idea of using tracks to make the round shape is a great idea, and the plate decoration is a very nice touch. Great job, too bad it didn't win, but I would've voted for you.

Unlucky on not advancing - this is a great build. The subject offers really nice colours to play with and that works well for you here. Perhaps Lego bowls, plates or cups may have swayed the vote in your favour but well done nonetheless.

Really cool. Not a lot of connections in the MOC, but that doesn't matter, the overall work is very convincing. The sushi is especially well thought out. Nice work.

I don't know who has won yet, but I honestly think you should have won by a long shot. I don't know how to lost two of the votes, but I would vote for you without question.

This is a tough decision. Though your presentation is excellent, I'm persuaded by your opponent's building techniques and as a result, my vote goes to him. Nevertheless, I hope to see you again next year, because you have a very distinct sense for aesthetic.

I think your opponent impressed me more with his build skill, as everything was connected and cohesive. However, your sushi platter shows a lot more visual finesse, and quite simply looks better. It's very tough to judge aesthetics verses technique, but ultimately I think you win my vote. Very close call though, I think had you either used more connections in the sushi or built the actual plates and dishes you'd be on better footing. Best of luck with the final judge!

This is a tough one to call. On one level yours looks more appealing, but that I think comes from the aesthetic of Japanese contra Italian food. The treads for seaweed wrap is the stand out of the build as are the lovely chop sticks. My issue is with the rice, it leaves much of your build based on placing pieces rather than building; also rice is generally uniform in appearance and the various pieces you used (I know probably because of necessity) break the illusion for me. Sorry it sounds picky, but I had to find a way to separate you two from one another, and I'm afraid as a result your opponent gets my vote.

I'm not a fish person, especially raw fish, but this stuff looks tasty! If I had to choose between you or General, I'd pick you. While I like that his has more visible stud connection, yours is a lot better looking. I know that with this food choice, you kind of have to have pieces be loose. It also has a better flow; you have a distict theme. His seems thrown together. Great job and good luck.

Nice stuff. You two are well-matched, but I think I know who I would have voted for. Too bad I do not really know what sushi actually looks like. I guess I have seen enough LEGO sushi to form an opinion on this.

Quoting David . Wait, are you chinese? Anywho, wonderful build, Halhi. I find sushi quite detestable, but the build will make it bearable... For now. :P
No, this is Japanese food, and I agree.

That's a good idea! Though I only have a small cup which would probably look a bit strange...

I totally understand. I can't think of a way it could be made watertight.

Quoting Alex Rode I forgot to add, maybe you should have made the plate and cup lego, but, hey, when could I have done better? (never.) I hope you advance to round 3!!
The problem is that the cup can't be Lego, unless you know a way of making a Lego cup watertight.
