Lego M-Bot

M-Bot, in Lego form!  I've been working on this in bits and pieces (literally) ever since I read Skyward.  Finished it about a month ago, and it's taken me this long to get around to taking some decent photos of it and uploading it here.  I used Ben McSweeney's illustrations from Skyward as reference.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, though I wish I had a curved cockpit windshield in my collection-- I had to make do with the straight windshield piece you see here.  Anyways, more angles on this model below.  Angled top view:

Angled top, wings forward (yes, they move):

And yes, the acclivity ring moves (though its range of motion is nowhere near what's described in the book):

Spensa in the cockpit, control sphere in the right hand, throttle in the left (I almost mixed that up :P):

And one last picture of Spensa and M-Bot, to top it all off: IMG_2476.thumb.JPG.3f383c8287d21dcc940bf76438644093.JPG

this is awesome

I really love that the aclivity (I don't think I spelled that right) ring actually moves (and exists in the first place)

Thanks for the positive feedback!  ^_^  For me, it's always the moving parts that take a Lego model from cool to awesome.

It took me several tries to find a design for the acclivity ring that I was happy with.  At first I tried to go for function, then I went for form, but it was all either too clunky or too fragile, so I finally settled on something in the middle.  The cockpit windshield, though, is all form.  It doesn't open unless you pry it off with your fingernails. :P  I also wanted to make the pilot's chair swivel, but that made the cockpit section too tall and bulky, so I scrapped that idea.
