Been feeling the need to make some steampunk lately, so while my larger steampunk MOC is going to take a while, I made this little thing. Took be a little less then an hour to make. Razz (this isn't steampunk. Gosh no, I have no idea what it is anymore.)



Flickr set.

C&C much appreciated.

Nothing about this says steampunk to me, but the propellers made me think it was some sort of minisub. Confused

It's a good shape and all, but it looks like it could be more of a micro fighter than anything steam related.

Yeah, steampunk implies steam engine, which usually involves a broiler, gears, tubes, and, of course, steam. It also should be reminiscent of the late 19th century Victorian era. This think looks a little too sleek and well-put-together for steampunk.

Meh, you guys are so nit picky. Razz I suppose it's not totally steampunk but, hey, I wanted to build something.

Well, it's good, just don't go putting false labels on it.

Okay, now for some actual criticism:

I think the one flaw with this is the back. Maybe try to bulk it up a little, right now it just looks like some sort of water raft. Try to build the area around the antenna up a couple brick heights. Everything else looks good, the sides, the cockpit, the back. It just looks a little squished to me.

Well, however one categorizes it, I really like this little craft. It's small, sleek, and grey, which make it high on my like list. I really like the little antenna, too. Looks like a fun little moc. Good work!

I'd suggest some more powerful looking engines. Bulk it up, thow in bigger props, and you'll have a nice looking ship.

Curses! My one weakness revealed! I can never differentiate between boiler and broiler. Confused

Heh, not like I ever really make my MOC's better. Going to need the parts from this for my airship. >.>

Thanks for the comments though.
