The Rusty Ferret . . Alright everybody, it’s time to bust out those horned-rims with the tape, put on your “I survived order 66” t-shirt, grab your favorite Hostess product, and get your geek on with a new bit of Star Wars inspired SHIPage! Now initially I wasn’t planning on making this much of a MOC. I began with the notion that I’d throw together just a little something to pass the time while I was sorting the unholy, sky-high mound of ABS that’s somehow managed to accumulate in my work space. But, given that the word “small” doesn’t seem to be in my vocabulary (Snarky comment? Anyone? Anyone?), this little diversion soon turned into (cue dramatic theme music)…a project. So here she is. I gave her the name Rusty Ferret in honor of a long-standing joke between myself and the nefarious Mr. Phipson. It’s actually in reference to…uh…to…hmm…Ya know what? Not gonna go there. I’d end up like Ralphie in a Christmas Story with our illustrious Sean Kenney washing my mouth out with Lifeboy. Look Sean! This is me behaving myself! You might have noticed several modifications from the original Crusader Class design on my WIP page. I liked her general form, but also decided to take some healthy liberties with the aesthetics. At first I just tried drinking her pretty. That worked fine until the next morning when I woke up… then, yeeesh! Finally I realized “Hey, this is my Lego creation, I’ll change whatever the hell I want.” But for those of you who need an explanation for the changes, let’s see… She’d fallen into an horrendous state of disrepair and then while visiting Yoda at his beach front Timeshare on Kashyyyk, I was the lucky recipient in WTV’s (Wookie television’s) Pimp My Gunship… After a weeks worth of alterations, this new “bitchin” version was revealed, and even Yoda himself proclaimed the ship “Too Fly for a white guy.” Right then, moving on… Here are some close-ups to calm the savage greeble-beast within you. I originally had some wimpier cannons atop the forward dorsal section, but after Joris Block emasculated me with his incessant nagging about the need for “bigger guns,” I crawled shamefully back to the drawing board and beefed up the security. This section includes what might possibly be the most challenging element to the original design…those tubular, bent, pipe-like thingies. Eventually I came up with the idea of placing tires between wheels to achieve the bend. I’m actually really pleased with the way that came out, and the technique could have applications for other things as well…mechs, microscale tunnels, battery operated feminine devices for…Hi, Mr. Kenney. So while I was scoping out ideas for a build, I ran across these…thought I’d share: How To Tell If You Are a Star Wars Geek If you pass out trying to move a pencil across your desk with the Force… you might be a Star Wars geek. If you get your head stuck in a bucket pretending your Darth Vader… you might be a Star Wars geek. If you put on a luminous colored condom and walk around humming like a light-saber… you might be a Star Wars geek. If you name your right hand 'Leia'…. you might be a Star Wars geek. If you listen for Obi-Wan while attempting to parallel park… you might be a Star Wars geek. If you fail to get the last Cheerio in the bowl and mutter, "The Force is strong with this one"… you might be a Star Wars geek. If before sex, you look down and say "Get in there, you big furry oaf, I don't care what you smell!"…you might be a Star Wars geek. If you have a tan line from your Darth Vader helmet…. you might be a Star Wars geek. If you took the time to read all of these stupid jokes… you might be a Star Wars geek, and most certainly have WAAAAY too much time on your hands. Not what I’d normally envision if someone said “a Ferret’s back side,” but there it is. And a few Pin-up shots… Work it, baby! Yeah...sexy! And now all I need to do is sell it for…
