THE VENUS DESTROYER!!!

In Micro Scale...

Ok, so, I did this from memory when I got up this morning AND after looking at the pictures of the Venus again I realise it isn't quite right or even remotely like it BUT on the plus side Mini-Warhead recognised it immediately as the VENUS without prompting so it can't be all that bad, can it? Also, I had only the parts I could get to without waking everyone up on a Saturday Morning, bad Ju-Ju and to be avoided at all costs. Anyway, enough excuses.

I like it, it doesn't exactly look like the venus but it has something assyrian about it.

well, the whiteness definitely gives it the Assyrian look. I like, overall is great! What I don't like is those killer teddy bears on the background. They look at you with those psycho eyes. brrrr... just give me a chill in my spine! jk

Hey, leave 2K (Tookey) and Flake alone! If you think they are scary you should see the scary flower baby my wife utterly loves. That fucker is hideously scary, in fact I think it's EVUUL!!!

Evil Flower Baby!..

CREEPY EVUUL FLOWER BABY! ARRRGH!

I swear at night this bastard turns to look at you. Scraping it's rough pottery base on the wood with a soft chilling sound that puts ice in your stomach and then, and then it's eyelids begin to open...  :shock:  I'm stopping now, I have THE FEAR! Of course the wifes collection of soppy DVD's behind the fucker doesn't help any.

EVUUL!!!  :D

There is no orange in the Venus, there is some burgundy though, the colour not the other one. I think I'm satisfied, I'll wait for Natalya's opinion but I think she'll be pleased enough.

On with the next ship. Microspace Wise I think I'm onto something. I wish I'd tried this ages ago. Hey! Olly, hurry up with dem rules!

If you have any R2-D2's, the bodies would be perfect for the engines. Good job though, definitely looks pretty close to the Venus, or as close as you could get with microscale.

Also; Holy Frasier.

I would say you should extend the nose canon out two more plate-widths, because it isn't at all sunken in on the real one.  other than that it looks pretty good.


In other news, I'm only seeing American shows in "the wifes collection" YES!!!  we succeed in the cultural takeover of yet another house....  :D  :D  :D  :D

Haha, I like Frasier too but she like Friends and since we got free view she alternates between Friends and CSI. I wish I never bought the new damn TV. Urgh!

first Assyrian, then Britannian? hmm... I would love to see your take on a small Vol raiding group...

Damn you! my mind just went into automatic VOL Shipwright overdrive. It's very do-able. Some slopes/reverse slops. couple of technic brick with a hole somewhere in-between so long as it isn't to blocky and two big guns pocking out from the recess. studless top with some arial turrets and three big engines and a small raised central spine for the bridge with some greebling on top and back for the con. Front doors two small 1x1x3 swing door. All done in tasteful black.
