I don’t know if putting links to other websites for the sake of comparisons or explanations is ok. So please, moderators, remove them both if it isn’t allowed. (no sarcasm there, I don’t want to be breaking the rules of the only message board website I use)
First, a little backstory to the backstory:
Earlier today, I posted a topic on the message boards I encourage you to check out, as it paved the way for all the brick-based mocs I am going to post in the future.
It was about posting mocs that aren’t Lego to the TTV message boards.
Bottom line, it’s ok to post mocs that aren’t Lego to Creative Content.
Now, for the backstory to the build:
I love the game destiny, but I think the jumpships look terrible (see bottom of post for the exception). So I decided to build a jumpship I would like to have in game. I apologise for the bad camera quality but here it is:
I will say that it is not in scale with the other jumpships in the game. It is about one and a half times as long as the Arcadia Jumpship from Mega Construx. I have it shown scaled by a custom Mega Construx Hunter figure. This build is about 2 feet long and about 10 inches wide. It uses an estimated 5500 pieces making this build which makes it have about twice as many parts as the average Signature Series (the Lego equivalent is the UCS series) set. This is not meant to have any action features, but a few parts of the ship are poseable.
The build gets most of its details from the greebling on the top and sides, the bottom has hardly any detail on it at all, as this moc is designed to look good on a shelf.
This build falls into the category of my builds that look a lot better in real life because my camera is terrible. It doesn’t come across on camera, but I am using a color scheme of silver, gray, black, and the grayish-silverish-blue that come in a few sets that use that color (see bottom of post).
I did commit one brand sin in that a few of the parts of the ship (Particularly the thrusters on the back need a few lego parts to finish the design, but hey, I bought the Lego and Mega Construx bricks, and Moc with them however I want.
All in all, I quite like the way this ship looks, and I’m probably not going to take it apart for at least two or three years.
