Microscale Spaceship

Name of Model: Iocus - ramming frigate, upgraded

In general, its not that difficult to build something small that looks like a spaceship. Technique is key in making a small ship stand out. This particular ship makes extensive use of a wide variety of TECHNIC components. A handful of bricks forms the top of the ship, but the rest of this is a delicious mix of unusual uses of parts - we have propellers stacked up with an unusual studless gearbox with a non-spinning gear configuration at one end, pneumatic splitters combine with Life On Mars arms to create a netted effect on the the front, the sides make great use of hollow tubing, and there are even goofy half-stud tricks used on the axles to give the impression of different inner sections of a spaceship.
This is Saturday's model of the day.
