When it comes to catching someone’s eye with a LEGO model, the initial WOW-factor of the presentation obvioulsy has a lot to do with it. With Victor Vercesi’s (Bricksbeard) M299 Utility Vehicle, the first impression is most certainly WOW! The bright colours and contrasting background makes this model jump right out at you.
Based on the M299 Utility Vehicle from the anime series Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Victor took some creative liberty with the design to make it his own. At first glance it seems quite straight-forward, but you really can see lots of great techniques and efficient use of pieces and detailing.
It is also cool to see some models based on the unsung heroes of anime series…so often it is the fancey spacecraft and mechas that get all the limelight ;)
