Real World Starfighter Contest

The "Real World" Starfighter contest provides an interesting opportunity for sci-fi builders to dabble with aesthetics far removed from the gunned up darts that proliferate the genre. P. Fieschi's is a great example, his concept presents a product of an arms race gone too far. Spherical parts are used to a great effect, as with all of Pierre's models the "Hercules" maintains a high level-of-detail.


"The nuke was a self propelled Monster of destruction, about 4 or 5 times the size of the Apollo module itself. In the end, officials had no idea what to do with this horrifying piece of engineering that went far beyond mutually assured destruction. For the sake of mankind, the project was discontinued, and the 'Emperor' nuke was fired at the sun."

The contest runs until the end of next month, get building!

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.
