JH AGF-7000 w tan paint job

Long time I was seeking that TLG would release the large quarter circle piece in tan. And now with the new pirate cove set it finally happened. Still a few parts are not available in tan, most was fine to replace with a similar part, except one (2 same pieces) prominent part. Can you spot it?

Here’s the tan version of my interpretation of the famous

Alakuneda Think Tank as seen in the Ghost in the Shell anime.

You know, sometimes you build something to a certain extent and that you cannot finish it somehow. Then it lays around for some time, you look at it several times and eventually the final direction comes to shape so you manage to finish it off – this is exactly one of those creations! If there is an existing design or a synopsis of a few designs there is a clear path to follow, but creating a new original design is just different.

BTW there are a whole load of this kind of projects spread across my creative lab.

 

Building notes

I fiddled around with the large flat curvy panels and my limited parts available in dark tan. It happened that this insect-shell like design came out. My love for the small flags urged me to look how I could add them and the overall design was born.

The build is based upon the traditional Vic Viper wing-layout – two prongs, two rear-sided wings and a tailfin.

It has space for a small minifigure, being positioned up side down – as this matters in space LOL

Therefore the the underside become also a legit upperside.

A friend pointed out the view from the top and bottom being nice stand alone images, so the masks had a spin-off.

 

Long talk, here’s the full show, enjoy!
