Pre-MOC Creations . Oh, the things you can do with LEGOs... this is some of the stuff I made prior to joining MOC pages. . The splash photo is an old-fashioned car I made to put next to my #10194 Emerald Night... model succesful, the syles match and they look cool together. The driver was added as a bit of an inside joke.
Here's an F-18 Hornet that I made... the custom color scheme was loosely based off of NASA's F-18 testing aircraft, mostly because I didn't have enough jet engine pieces in grey. The wings and landing gear fold, and the ailerons, aka flaps, on the wings really move. The overall shape has some slight innaccuracies... but someone I know who works with Hornets occasionally recognized it when I showed it to him, so I'm pretty happy with it.
Another car... I like making six-wide cars, mostly because I'm not as gifted as the masters of LEGOŽ cars, such as Firas Abu-Jaber, and can't make them much bigger without making them look awful and innaccurate (I'm working on that). It's loosely based off of a Ferrari Spyder, but then it morphed into something with just a touch of Porsche and too much blockiness. I made a later version that had a working convertible roof, but wasn't smart enough to photograph it. Oh well.
I conclude with this pig. A friend of mine called it "cute," which I found mildly annoying, but nevertheless I liked how it turned out too much to dismantle it without properly documenting it first. Why LEGOŽ has special pig-shaped elements (like in model #7566) when they could use these is beyond me.
EDIT December 2nd, 2010 - After an inquiry about the rarity of pink pieces, I discovered that I had edited the image and then forgotten about it. The original was probably white.
So that's what I've been up to all my MOC-free years... there's been a lot more, but most of it's been dismantled without being photographed, and not all of it was this good. Thanks for viewing, and comments, whether compliments or criticism, are always welcome.
