Main article: Fireflower Airship.

My largest and most-ambitious project created to date, this gargantuan ship spanned across a 6-foot table and required over 8,000 pieces to build. I began breaking ground for this in the fall of 2011, and completed it by February 2012 after spending every weekend working on it as much as possible. The ship uses “SNOT” (studs not on top) for the bulk of its outer structure; the side panels are riveted on to an internal skeleton via Technic pieces. The stern of the ship contains mosaic tiled sprites, with a stained-glass window of a fire flower that lights up using a 9V battery and a small bulb. This was one of the projects that first caught the eye of Nintendo Power, and was prominently featured in the May 2012 issue. Full Photo Shoot on Flickr. Photos by R. Smith.
