Contest Entry: Achmer "Charybdis" Walker/Tripod
Posted 31 March 2013 - 01:28 PM
Here's my VERY LAST MINUTE entry into the Harmony Vehicle Design. Early on in the contest, I started working on a saucer-shaped heavy assault fighter, but realized I didn't know where to go with it, and so it sat for a month (I might pick it up again, but not before the end of this contest). I started working on this guy this morning, wanting to try to create a microscale version of a very large Achmer tripod. On the bottom are four thrusters, used to propel the craft from the bottom of the sea up to the surface for rapid deployment situations. At the center of the thrusters is a tractor beam. Inspired by the shaping of a squid, I wanted to do something with a cone-like appearance, and the cone halves from the new Droid Escape set proved perfect for that (I just wish I had them in dark bley). I would love to try to tackle this in mini-fig form one of these days.
Constructive and comments and suggestions are appreciated, as always!
Currently working on: Dustbowl (Novel), 1974 VW Beetle "Crow", Unnamed LEGO Space Freighter

Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
"To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods."
