About this creation












I've been on a bit of a si-fi roll lately, and this is its latest product. This was a lot of fun to build. It's the first time that I've built an aerial vehicle, and I'm very pleased with it. Sweet grey angle-y VTOLs (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) have always been a favorite of mine.



In other news, I completely resorted my collection over the past week and a half. Here are a few pictures I took along the way.



The starting point: sorted by color in those big coffee buckets.






Two tables covered in little piles of pieces. That's not even all the pieces I had to sort; there were a good few more.




Once my drawer cabinets arrived, I filled all 108 (96 small, 12 large) drawers and put them on my building table.




And the final setup! I love it! I was able to build this VTOL in several hours over two days, which is much faster than I used to be able to build.



Comments and constructive criticism are appreciated!
Soli Deo Gloria!

Quoting Mate P Where can I get one of those drawers?

Love the shaping and colors! I really want to use olive green more, it's a nice color when used right. Even if sand green is undeniably better...

Quoting Graeme Straughn Great work, again! CONGRATS ON 50 LIKES!!!! It's pretty sweet isn't it? :P 100 here we come!
Thanks! Yeah, I'm really glad! 100? That would take a while... I want this to get to 1,000 views. 100 more!

Quoting Achintya Prasad Excellent work man! My only real criticism would be for you to try and thicken the walls of the rings around the rotors; the ducting seems kinda spartan we compared to the rest of the armored-boxy shaped body. Otherwise, excellent work, with the olive green highlights the cherry on the cake :-D
Thank you! And thank you for the suggestions, as well. I agree with you about that; it's one of the things that I would like to have done differently, but couldn't figure out how.

Quoting Graeme Straughn No guns!? You should add a Gatling Gun underneath... :P Did they come from Amazon? Doesn't EVERYTHING come from Amazon? XP
Thanks! Yeah, that's what my brother said. I was mostly done, and didn't want to worry about it. Let's just call this one a scout ship. :) Yep! Almost everything I get comes from Amazon!
