The 10-SGTY Racer — A Lego Tensegrity Build

The 10-SGTY Racer — A Lego Tensegrity Build

This is the 10-SGTY Racer a Lego MOC created by lokiloki29. They built a Lego Tensegrity Sculpture to achieve the hovering spaceship effect. A building technique that has exploded in popularity in the last few weeks. Most of them use Lego chains to hold the weight and balance the floating parts. This creation uses Lego ropes / strings. It helps the spaceship look like it is tethered down, yet ready to depart at any moment. The hanger design is well detailed too. With SNOT techniques used to achieve a more detailed and cleaner base. The yellow boxes created out of Lego plates, and the extra grates on the big Lego grates are great details. The platform lift / gantry is what really helps pull everything together. The appearance of it being on wheels hides its real purpose of being the support structure that is holding up the starfighter. A quick climb up to the walkway and now our pilot is board!

Cleared for Landing, an Extraordinary Sci-fi Hanger by Raoulosos

Raoulosos' Lego Sci-fi Hanger 1

Lego and Science Fiction go together perfectly. You might even say it is one of the most preferred ways to render futuristic ideas in the present. Here is a starship hanger that shows off exactly what Lego can do. With a lot of great details, for instance: the LCD display (not Lego), Japanese signage, two rafts, two owls, and even a tiny frog. This is also a great example on how to repurpose your seemingly useless Lego pieces.

Most important to this Hanger is the use of color. By using complementary and contrasting colors, Raoulosos, is able to highlight certain details that would otherwise go unseen. Especially apparent with the starship, the tan and green make sure that it stands out from the scenery.
