VTOL Dropship.

  Yes! I did it! Created a good dropship, first try, with my own design. This one's very roomy with space for at least 6 guys. It has no armament yet (it's not my strong point) but I hope to put at least a couple of machine guns on the sides for defense.
It's pretty blocky but compared to my other stuff it has a huge amount of detail. I crammed it with as much as I could and I think it worked. I just wish I could have put some boosters on the back.

Those things on the side aren't meant to be ramps. They're more like barriers for a bit of protection. I'll probably attach the machine guns to them.        

I really like how these boosters turned out.

It has a very Pelican feel to it. 

A little shot of the interior. Pretty bare but this ain't a 747.

And a heavy trooper. I'm hoping to make a squad of these guys.

Yeah, and the boosters turn.

Many Mini Mecha.

  These little mechs are completely my own design. The techniques may have been used before but I didn't see them online and then copy them. Overall these are definitely my best yet.

Mechs with big guns, asymmetrically colored armor, and bad attitudes are cool. 

There's an unwritten rule that the first one I build has to be the leader. I think that his gun is the best.

This guy's my favorite. Probably the color scheme. Or his weapon. A triple barreled shotgun. 

I like that shield on his left arm as well.

This guy was sort of thrown together after the other two and it shows since I was running out of pieces.                                                                                                                                             

I actually made about five guns and then just picked the best three.

And this is to show how it's put together. Simple but cool.

Heavy Support Drone.

  This drone was inspired by the many great robots I see online. I think this design is definitely my best one yet but it's still not perfect. I don't like the arms.
First a creative shot. Yes, that's one of my rebel soldiers. I love that face.

Trust me it looks better in person.

A couple of pathetic boosters I stuck on.

I absolutely love this leg design! Unfortunately I couldn't build an epic arm to complete it. It seems I'm doomed to just build good arms or good legs and never be able to build both for one mech.
And this is a little suit I built afterwards. I think it has potential.

The Grizzly.

  This is a little APC I threw together in a day for the Confederation. It's large amount of protection and high speed make it very useful for transporting VIPs. It can be equipped with a variety of armament but since I hate making weaponry for vehicles I didn't.

The huge front with the smallest windshield possible. Some enemy troops have been known to break and run at the mere sight of a grizzly, even an unarmed one.                                                                  

There's only one way in. This could be a liability in case the vehicle get's damaged but it also defends against hijackers. Also, anything large enough to damage the Grizzly would most likely also completely obliterate it.                                                                                                                          

This is me trying to get a picture of the com center in the back. If you look closely you can see it.

And the comfy seats. There's room for about 6 guys.

  Yes, the absolute last thing that needs to be online is yet another version of the Warthog. I just couldn't resist though. I knew I could build a good looking one so I went ahead and did it. This build was made several months ago. I'm quite proud of it to be honest. I only took some small design details from saber scorp and kooberz.
Yes that is a Megablocks windshield. Have you seen a Lego windshield for a Warthog that is actually decent and see through?                                                                                                                           

For some reason the handles had fallen off the minigun and I didn't notice.

It has a full interior.

I used Megablocks idea for the suspension.

And a little shot of how the hood was put together.

  I actually built this about two years ago and I've only gotten around to posting it now. There was always something bigger that I wanted to post about so it just kept getting pushed back.
I know that that is a stormtrooper but it's the only one Star Wars trooper I have with a helmet.

And a final shot on how it's put together.

The Weary Prospecter.

  This ship was made because I wanted to build a mining ship for the old school rock raiders. Ever since I saw them I thought they were the coolest thing. So here's The Weary Prospector. I'd call it a half SHIP since it's about 50 studs with the engine cone thingy. It's also my first decent large spaceship. I tried to build one a while ago and it was a travesty, I didn't even take pictures.
So here it is. My sisters say it looks like a fish and not a spaceship. Whatever.

If there's one thing I've learned it's that it is a pain to photograph something this big.

This is really my first real attempt at greebles. Don't ask me what they do.

The entrance.You can see the ladder that leads to the upper part of the ship.

The navigational equipment and a red light because every ship needs to know when they are about to explode. Not too technical since there's not much room.                                                                       

And the fully stocked galley.

The sleeping arrangements are cramped at best. 

My attempt at getting a pic of the engine. The only other way would have been to take a sledgehammer to the entire rear end of the ship.                                                                 

With the pilot's seat removed.

And here is the pilot. Finally found a use for that ugly windshield.

The not so pretty underside.

The shipping container can be easily removed.

And there you go. The only two rock raiders I have so far are Bandit and Doc. Oh, well. Anyhow, A few days after I had finished the first version my sibling dropped it on the stairs and it smashed into hundreds of pieces. None of which were too large either. But I was able to get it back together after about 45 minutes of sweating. Overall I'd say I've spent about 4 or 5 hours on this.
