You know how it goes. You build something for a contest, but you don’t get around to finishing it on time or taking pictures. Well, in the case of Zach Clapsadle‘s Jedi Steamfighter, the lateness doesn’t detract from the awesomeness.
Zach says he wanted to create a complete hyperdrive ring. Yowza! Let’s hope he comes back to this project and does that.
This little contraption overloaded with a certain family of hillbillies headed to a place called Beverly Hills made me smile. Thanks for the laugh, Bumblejeep44!
I never cease to be amused by Tim “RogueBantha” Goddard‘s creations confined to domes.
His latest is an iconic scene from A New Hope — the Millennium Falcon gets tractor-beamed into a Death Star hangar bay as our heroes try to rescue a certain princess. As always, more pics on Flickr
Matt Hamann has been steadily improving his rolling stock (trains and carriages) and this new Burlington Northern GP9 is a true masterpiece. The placement of details, subtle shape differences and clever tricks (check out the hands on the handrail) combine to make for a beautiful engine. Excellent work.
DasNewten tries his hand at a style reminiscent of nnenn‘s microscale ships. And I say he succeeded rather nicely. Just one picture doesn’t do this little beauty justice, so click the photo above to check out more on Flickr.
Sweet unholy hell. When MisterZumbi does something for the first time, he does it with a bang — like a backfiring hotrod.
For someone who’s never built anything larger than minifig-scale, this is quite the first. The level of detail in MisterZumbi’s “Road Zombie” is unbelievable. Click the pic to check out the engine, the interior, and other tidbits of heavy metal goodness.
Alex (aka Xiphos Systems) presents two gorgeous and slick microscale starships. While we’ve not seen much yet from this builder, he certainly leaves a promising impression. These fine models are reminiscent of the amazing starfighters from nnenn. Keep up the great work Alex!
Nevsky Anti-Armor Gunship
My latest work is a rather grisly one, though it is not wholly intended to appeal in that manner. Take a look at the accompanying writing and you’ll see that there’s another layer of meaning, and a very personal one, to this creation. I present Lament for Innocence.
Harrison (aka “Corran101”) submits four epic entries to the CC vig contest — vignettes inspired by Homer’s Odyssey.
Our hero Odysseus has many adventures. In no particular order (go read the book!), he battles the sea monsters Scylla and Charybdis, rides a sheep out of a cave, does a bit of feasting with Circe, and fires an arrow through some axe handles.
Check out more pics in Harrison’s photoset on Flickr.
Brent just keeps churning out fantastic creations. Enough words. Here’s the LEGO.
My favorite, an air barge powered by eggbeater-shaped propellers called Weal:
Phaeton Carriage and Iron Wasp:
Shrine of Etward:
