A ship I've been putting together over the course of October. The feels are strong with this one.
About this creation
Cormac, my Brother's Sig-Fig, will temporarily be filling in for Mark in this Moc. Mark... *sniff, I don't know where he is. He got lost somewhere, somehow. I think my three-year-old nephew had something to do with it.
HE WILL BURN.
The Mutt. An explanation for the name will come later, for now, just enjoy the Moc.
Back end. Eh, kind of simple with that great big wheel for a thruster, but I thought it fit.
The undercarriage is very well put together in the back, the front a little less so but still workable.
Ah, here comes "explanation time".
Several people who have seen this particular Moc have remarked that it looks a rather lot like a dog while in docking position, with the shape and position of the front landing gear and the wings looking like the legs of a dog, and the center wing sticking strait up like a tail. Sometimes the resemblance is stronger in some positions than others.
After dipping it's nose to the ground, the cockpit can be removed for the pilot and co-pilot to exit. The co-pilot would be Bubs, a little tablescrap robot that has stuck around for a long time.
And of course, it wouldn't be a spacecraft without A REMOVABLE COCKPIT! *GASP! IT'S AMAZING! *That was sarcasm right there.*
The ship's main body. It took me a while to get this looking good enough to me, and functional enough to. I went through several versions in which the wings didn't fit into the body itself well enough to look good at all.
And this is my pride and joy of this mod! This unnamed method using flat tiles and plates and bricks!! It works GORGEOUSLY! That large section on the ground is attached entirely by this technique.
Finally, a picture of the model all back together again in a more space-worthy position. *This is also the first time I've ever used an invisible stand. Wheeeeeeeeeeee........
I wish I had gotten more pictures of the model in different positions, I feel like I have underrepresented the model. Comments and critique are well appreciated, so leave some of that if you have any just sitting idly by in your brain's jean's pockets.That's a weird image...
Hum. I didn't expected this. You're pretty good with System MOCs, you should come up with more dear. I don't usually comment in ships since I don't have much idea of them, but for you, I'll make an exception. xD For me, the Mutt has a really simple design, I mean, it doesn't have a look that results remarkable, I found it very regular. THOUGH, there are a lot of desigs and techniques that amazed me. First of all, the landing system. The front legs surprised me, they're really well hidden when flying. Second, the part usage, like that half-cylindrical part at the end. And third, but also the most important, that new, brilliant technique using plates! Really surprising! The Mutt may look like a regular ship, but it has a lot of surprises that make it very cool. Great job, dear! <3
