"Red Stripe Shuttle"

 This shuttle by Colin is a great example of how advanced building techniques aren't at all necessary for a sleek model. The fuselage seems to be mostly studs up, making simple but smart use of slopes. Jassim's work comes to mind. The windows sell it as a flashy civilian craft, a fun break from the drab future-military subthemes that a lot of builders stick to. There's some aged commentary authored by the .space old guard expressing caution when using wheels as engines, but I don't think Colin's model here suffers from it. The more I study it the less comfortable I am with the lack of white surface behind the red stripe, but it's a minor gripe.
 He also has a collection of nicely scaled AFVs, all in the standard green color. Very "LEGO", if you will.

If you admire Colin's military models, you ought to pay Brickshelf user Nyu's gallery a visit.

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
