4882 Alien invader
I was playing with a different setup for the engines so all four could be grouped together. The setup was rather broad so I started to think about what I could do to cover them. The biggest plates were the large wings so I put them on top and after that I took all the curved slopes. I thought it might work as a vertical build so I added the cockpits. The whole setup looked a bit alien so I continued on that theme, adding odd elements to the cockpit. When I looked at the result just sticking the engines to the wings didn't look that good. I decided to put the reverse slopes, of which I had plenty, in between. Next I made sure the engine section was closed off and it was done. A funny, not very complicated build, which reminded me of the alien invader computer game. For a moment I was in doubt if I should add it to my regular models, but it is good to have an unusual, more fun, build in between. Overall it looks quite nice. There is no clear up or down so one can choose one's own preference.
