Kerbal Insect Wranglers

Recommended Posts

Hi y'all i'm Planetfall,

I made this dragonfly.                                                              g6VqgRm.pngepiaeschna-heros.jpgqlEAdvR.png

I had a lot of fun make in this craft so I thought lets make a challenge to build insects with maybe kerbals riding on them!

Rules:

Since I want this thread to be about creativity I don't want too many rules, but I feel there need to be some guidelines.

-You can choose any insect to model 

-Accuracy is a big plus, try to make the craft look reasonably similar to the insect you're modeling. Put up a photo of the actual insect so we can compare. 

-kerbal riders are not required, but are encouraged 

-your craft should be able to move (if the bug walks the model should roll, if the bug flies than so should your craft) Static models will still be accepted though

-Have fun!

It looks cute! But I thought this was a challenge too. Maybe separate into two threads?

Isn't this a challenge ?

Maybe not the best presentation, but it looks like a challenge...

The idea is nice, insect ksp:

Ah. I moved this thread before the challenge rules were there, so all it was were pictures of the crafts. Sorry about that!

Moved back.

I have this cute little Butterfly I made a while back. I gave it wheels more for the practicality than anything else.

Nice! i like how you used the cockpits as eyes. Did you have a specific insect in mind wile building it? If so could you please put up a picture of the real thing to compare. Sorry if I didn't present the challenge well, it my first time making one.:blush:

I like the shape a lot. is it a VTOL? I wonder because of the up facing air intakes. Edit Ahh, I didn't see the album for some reason silly me. (A kerbal Rider awesome! :))

Thanks both of you for sharing!

No specific insect in mind, looks more like a chick if you ask me, but Insect-like craft are awesome i.m.o. starfleet:

That certainly inspires fear in the harts of its enemies!   -shudders-

While technically an arachnid not an insect, I feel my spider has a place here.
