Of all the sub-themes the online Lego Community has taken on, sky-fi is the one that confuses us the most. Boats in the air, or even in space – where they don’t need to be aerodynamic let alone hydrodynamic – it all makes absolutely no sense. But does it need to, because a) Lego is escapism, and b) the theme generates creations that look as marvellous as this.
‘This’ is Sunder_59‘s ‘Air Battlecruiser’, and whilst we don’t know how it works, it is a properly wonderful build. Barely a stud is visible thanks to some brilliant ‘SNOT’ techniques, whilst a battery of guns and even an on-board micro-scale fighter plane add to the detail.
There’s more of Sunder’s magnificent creation to see at his photostream – head into the clouds via the link above.
