I while back I challenged myself to make a mechanism that kinda mimics the movement of a piston in a rotary engine but hollow. After a few weeks and various attempts at trying to get the movement I wanted I ended up with something that looked very organic and rather unsettling. I thought it would be perfect for a “half man made, half living” space ship and with shiptember right around the corner I thought it would be a great time to put it to good use. I knew I wanted to make a ship inspired by an angel fish and thought the round core would be a great centre piece for the model. Unfortunately as I was building I realised it wouldn’t meet the requirement of being 100 studs long without looking silly. So I decided to just make it it’s own thing.
