Day 1: Quick Microbuild

Post by ncbarrett » Mon Dec 19, 2011 1:46 pm

Build a ship or boat with 4 pieces no larger than a 4x4 plate.
I’ll pick the best looking one.

Here is inspiration from my 3 year old daughter:

What you'll win:

1 each of the following sets, all w/o boxes.
7599 Garbage Truck Getaway, 7569 Desert Attack, 30070 Alien Spaceship

You have 24 hours to enter.
:geek:

see rules here:

Clarification: Must be physical bricks, its only 4. :mrgreen:

Here is my entry:

It is a microscale sailboat!

*Note* The black piece does not count towards my piece limit, it is just there to hold up the boat itself.

Here's my entry. 4 pieces. I think it looks decent :-D

Apologies for the poor photography. I lent my camera to a friend and I don't have it back yet.

Please don't laugh - I've never tried to do something like this before! (I had fun, though.)

Thanks for the help getting my image up, Legobrandon! I think it's been about 2 years since I even accessed my Flickr account...

Ack, I'm such a neophyte, I can't seem to get the image to appear in my message. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong - it's in my Flickr photostream. Can anyone help? Thanks!
First click on the image, then on the top right hand corner click "View all sizes", choose a size and then right click and choose 'copy image url'. Then you go on to the forums and press 'img' then paste your link.

A really micro ship. It stays within the 4x4 plate rule and it is SNOT! I wish I have a black or grey "Plume Feather" instead of a red one. Now it looks like the ship is on fire.
