Smooth triangular shape. Two-pronged front. Complex building techniques that form immaculate angles. The perfect balance of smooth surfaces and just enough greebling. And really big guns. This Wondering Peacock must be the work of LEGO space expert Tim Goddard. And it certainly is the centre of attention.
The co-author of LEGO Space: Building the Future once again delivers a spaceship that is a feast for the eyes both aesthetically and technically. The white, blue, and medium azure colour combination makes an icy look for this sleek racing craft, but at the same time its shaping exudes a certain tropical warmth. The combination of angled and round section bring a balance that is integral to really good spaceship designs. Tim takes that balance further with sleek hull and exposed greebling of the internals and other mechanical sections. The big grey cannons are the icing on the cake, and despite standing out, they do not look out of place.
A look on the underside reveals these elements in more details. We can just stare in awe at the masterful build.
