Finished off this Space MOC I’ve been fiddling with. As usual, I am missing all of the right pieces in the right colors. I think it could also use more and better greebling.
You can see here how I’m missing the red curved piece; I actually have three of those in red, but not the mirrored piece for the other side. I’m sure its buried somewhere but I wanted to finish it so I could harvest these pieces for other projects. Actually, this whole MOC started with the front bit…the window portion turned sideways with the curved parts holding it in place. I may come back to this window configuration for another MOC but turn it vertical instead and see how that turns out.
You can see the old dark greys mixed in with the newer dark greys. Greebling looks kind of random to me. Originally the wings were going to be different, but they just ended up like this.
Sparse greebling on this side. I thought the engines turned out okay; I was playing around with using two “wheel wells” together and seeing how that would look framing the engine bits. I actually saw someone else using the pieces in this way for a building and was intrigued.
A view from somewhat underneath showing the angles used. I think it would look better if the red angled “striping” in the middle extended all the way back. Maybe next time.
I’m happy with the overall basic shape of the MOC but not so much the wings. Without some kind of wings, it felt kind of awkward. Again, you can see how it could use more greebling.
The framework of the Transport and interior. The interior has pretty much no greebling whatsoever; but there wasn’t a lot of room for it. Spacing was a little off on the “benches” so I had to stagger the Space Marines.
You can see I didn’t have any more of the right color arches. Also, the half heart hose greeble in the back there.
There is actually more to be seen than shows up here. A lot of instrument panels are hidden, but again, it could still use more greebling. I probably should have taken more shots as it was being built to see things more clearly.
Overall, its ok. It was mostly an experiment with the window pieces that turned into a transport. Next time will be better planned out and probably turned vertical.
