So, I'm still in the process of teaching myself to build. The best building experience I've had so far, that really opened my eyes as to how pieces connections can be possible in crazy ways, was the ChiefLUG initiation. Building my viper was so much fun, however, it's just been sitting on my shelf collecting dust for months, and I don't have much intention of finally finishing it, I don't really want to BrickLink pieces and such for it, so I finally destroyed it for the pieces.

I wanted to play around, building really tiny, spurred on by the SciLUG contest/challenge, the small starfighter build. While the result I have here is too tall to count for the project, I enjoyed the challenge thouroghly.

I loved building the whole thing SNOTty, and it figs a fig!

Considering the size, you managed to get a lot of intersting methods into it, but it isn't quite cohesive, It looks good at first glance, but it's filled with gaps, and the colors are unevenly spaced.
Okay, criticisms aside Evil or Very Mad

I kinda like it

As it stands, I think you did an excellent job getting the shape, and you have a good grasp of what you want to build, the tall sail and short stubby wings are a cool combination, and you make it look good with a minimum of specialized parts usage. Keep up the good work.

That's the cutest spaceship I've ever seen. Very Happy Great work, and nice pictures also. This is like the first time I've seen black and green LEGO photographed well together.

Thanks for the constructive critisicm, I appreciate it. Thanks Iceman as well, I think I've really started to get my photography to a high level.
