Ooh, what do we have here, a discussion?

Thank you, this sort of thing makes me disproportionately satisfied, and well done on the subscribers.

Zupponn makes a very good point, as "the builder" it's quite hard for me to really evaluate how good one build is compared to another. You get a certain "Look wot I built in't it epic!!" feeling that dies down after you get bored of swooshing your MOC, but never really goes away from your view of a build. It's useful for people to criticise, so that I can make something prettier next time. Saying "Look wot U built in't it epic!!" is not something I'd discourage, but if you have any criticism that's just as important. If something notsoepic is labelled as totallyepic then next time it's going to be harder to build something legitimatelyepic.

tl;dr:Being nice is nice, but criticism is also nice, and quite useful (HonoreBallzack excluded).

Oh and guys, I'm fine with :rule7: , but if "do these blue helmets come in grey, or should I spray paint them" is the fittest topic, my name is PrincessCauliflower.

And then make the barrel larger.

I did look at it the other day and think "Hmn yes, it is unfortunately large."

But then I noticed the machine gun build on the desk and decided everything was perfectly proportional.


The machine barrel is not getting smaller, I want it to look like it fires babies heads and if mere mortals try to shoot with it they'll get launched into orbit by the recoil. But then I have the dilema of how to make the gun bigger, cause those two poor bastards have to carry it around somehow, along with an ammo box for added blow-up potential.

Oh, and I demand to be called "Your Highness" from here on in.

Currently living with seven potatoes and their carrot godfather in the Rootlands, in a hut made of a picnic basket and two biscuits.

It's even endorsed by TLG themselves, in one of the more technically interesting sets I've seen.

I'm glad that people are still finding this thread (through the link in my sig?), I'm about half way through with another build at the moment. A fighter plane inspired by a few WWII planes and the teak decking of 1920s motor boats.

Also: 100 posts in this topic.

Well, M90, I do think about how I would build larger projects such as battleships, floating-air-battleships and super tanks etc. However I normally don't get past two bricks before reaching the "wtf am I supposed to do with this" phase. Maybe one day.

Can't wait to see your tank!!!
Honestly though, I'm quite elated that I'm about to see another tank on the field.
