Outer Patrol Craft

Sometimes builds start with a plan. Long months of thinking, sometimes drawing out plans. Those also tend to be the big, large ships that also take weeks to build. Other times, I have parts, start fiddling with them, and all of a sudden, get his with some inspiration, and a couple days later, boom, a new ship.

This ship is one of those latter ones. it started with getting those tread pieces and that Technic spoiler in a bunch of parts from Value Village. Couple evenings of building, and I have this rather chunky fighter.

I am most pleased with the nose of the fighter, always wanted to use that black cockpit and it's reverse together, but never could figure out how.

More pictures here, if you are interested!

Blacktron goes real.

I was sent this piece of art, depicting a "real life" Blacktron 1 soldier. I enjoy seeing minifigs turned into real life looking people (Especially space minifigs), and this is one of the best I have seen (Not that I have seen many, but it's still great)
The helmet is especially awesome, and a great artistic interpretation.

Taking to the seas

Stephan Neihoff continues his "Projekt Blacktron II Special Forces" project (This is part 6, I have previously blogged a couple others before) with this boat on presumably alien world. The flora (Fauna? which ever one is the plant one..) certainly doesn't look like any on earth.

I am not normally fond of green water, but here it fits, as it flows with the general colour scheme of Blacktron 2. And that crane is the star of the show (or those cargo containers using the dice part and custom tiles)

I think he punctured those soccer balls

If he didn't, then I'm not sure how Stephan Niehoff attached them in this creation. But regardless, I have never seen soccer balls used for anything other than... soccer balls.

Space cop infiltration? TOSS EM INTO THE LAVA!

Not sure who the builders are (With a name like 3LUG, I assume there were 3 builders) or even what show this was displayed at, but who cares? Large Blacktron 1 base with monorail and lava!
More pictures can be found here.
