S.N.O.T. Nanoships - The First Annual S.N.O.T. Contest! . Nanoships built using SNOT techniques! . Mandatory link to the contest: The First Annual S.N.O.T. Contest! I'm beginning to like SNOT building! This was a fun build for me, although it was kind of difficult for me to come up with an idea. I had at first decided to build a scene involving astronauts and aliens, but none of my SNOT techniques were any good, and when they were, they weren't the main focus of the build. So I took to the skies... or stars... and decided to build a Mars Mission inspired ship. And I did. I think it turned out great for it being my first Micro/Nano MOC ever. But it needed something more. So I made a Mars Mission alien ship. It turned out good as well. I constructed the tiny ships out of pieces I had wanted to use but didn't end up using them anywhere. I was all set to take pictures when I realized they needed ships sized between both the frigates and the cruisers. So I built two destroyers. I am very happy with the end result: eight ships ready to engage in space combat! This is the cover photo as well as a group shot of my Nano ships. All of them use SNOT techniques except for the small cruisers. I call the big ones frigates, the medium ones destroyers, and the small ones cruisers. A close-up of the Astronauts' frigate. I built this one entirely upside-down and sideways. As you can see, there is quite a bit of detail in this design. An aerial view. A sideways view. Here you can see that bottom observation deck on the right. The engines. I used Mars Mission wheels and am very satisfied with how it turned out. All four separate pieces disconnected. The main bridge. As you can see, I removed the wheel from a steering wheel piece to make a probe or arm or laser weapon of some sort. The top section. This could be a ship all by itself! The middle section that the top section connects to. It has two SNOT connections to the main body of the ship that keeps it together. The two connections. The engines. A close up of the top section's SNOT connection. The main body. This is completely upside down. As you can also see, I used two whit ecar doors on the front to give a slanted front. A close-up of the doors. The SNOT connection on the main body. Another view. The observation deck. The middle section and the main body connecting. Connected. The top section fitting into its connect point. The top section connected! The main bridge connecting to the top section. Connected! The whole ship again. This is the destroyer. A side view. here you can see the SNOT I used on the bottom of the ship. The back of the astronauts' destroyer. The SNOT used. The back engines. The SNOT up close. The front of the ship. This whole thing was inspired by General Grievous's starship from Episode III. The two cruisers. Speaking of General Grievous, I used his body (of which I have two) to create the starship body. A translucent orange plate completed the look. And now onto the aliens' ship! As you can see, it is indeed built sideways. A side view of the ship The engines. I used a radio for some sort of communications array. It worked quite nicely. A top view. Another side view. How I got the angled green plates. I used the two Power Miner angled grate plates and a wheel well. Wow, lots of dust. You can also see the three bridges here, built upside-down. The aliens' destroyer. It is built upside-down. I went for a domed bridge to achieve a hive-type ship control. The back of the ship. The studs facing up. The front of the ship. Now one of my favorite parts of this MOC... the alien cruisers! A completed cruiser along with the five pieces it took to make it. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4! If you don't have a green stud, use any other color to make it unique! perhaps the bombers have a slightly different tail fin and a purple stud? A close-up of the nose of the alien frigate. I used the helmet of Ogel's henchmen from the first generation Agents sets. Ogel's underwater base, to be precise. A blurry shot of the three bridges. A final parting shot of the alien fleet! A final parting shot of the astronaut fleet! My idea was to have these be massive ships. The cruisers would be like the size of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The frigates, then, are the Star Destroyers of Star Wars. The destroyers would then be the size of a Borg Cube. perhaps not quite those scales, but roughly. Good luck, Seamus!
