    Here is a lego chinook I finished this morning, sorry about the bad colour range

    Just in case people don't want to click on the link.

    What can I say its pretty colorful and blocky, two things that Mocers loath. It doesn't have the best structure and very little detail. To fix it I recommend buying some grey blocks and replacing the colors with those, possibly add some tile pieces and greebles such as mini figure hands and poles. The interior could have some chairs as well just to give it a more military feel. I also think you should use some angle pieces to make it a little more aerodynamic. Well that is my two cents.

    A good start. But take a lookat a Chinook real-world photo;
    http://sandyakala.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/chinook21.jpg

    As you can see, there are many things structurally that can be changed about your MOC.I'm not bothered by the colors,no everyone has mass amounts of dark green.

    So you have the lower sides about right, however the "ski" pieces on the bottom are strange,and are onlysee on news helicoptors. The bottom of a Chinook ends with the platoons and landing gear.
    The cockpit looks okay, it could certainly be chnaged in terms of shape. But I must say, this is the first time that Spiderman cockpit has actually looked good on a MOC.
    My main beef with this is the upper part. To start, the propellors are much too small, and the back set needs to be raised. Second, Chinooks have no tails.

    It's a decent start, with some modifications this has potential.

    Don't worry, it's actually not that bad. This is a place to help your building skills. But I agree with the others, it needs a lot of improvement.

    Ah... Reminding me of meh days at Air Force bases in Korea(When I was eight) . Well, VBBN basically said all the things that need to be improved.
    Anyways, I might as well give some words of advice. Since dark green is a pretty rare color (I would know since I barely have any), I would invest in dark gray bricks to make it look closer to the real thing. Also, like Darman said, you should give it more angles and details. Wink

    The colors do bother me quite a bit so this might help you out piece-wise if you have enough money. Smile

    Be creative! You can use an X-Wing Cockpit or something else for that.

    It seems to me that, judging from your choice of pieces, that you just don't quite have the collection for MOCing... you either have to scrap the SW and such sets you have (Spiderman 4+? You gotta have something other than that.) or buy some new advanced sets.

    And Darman, try to resize that pic, ServIMG does it automatically if you don't want to use an editing program for it, but it's widening up the page, like a cheeseburger. Laughing

    It goes to a new level, and then smashes it and goes higher! You've graduated from MOCpages newbie to low-medium skill member. Shocked Smile

    20 Times Better but it still doesn't look much like a chinhook, perhaps a renaming is in order?

    Way better than the previous one. That cockpit piece doesn't look like the best cockpit for the job though, but it's still 10x better then the last one.
