My entry for category B of the Unseen Menace event in Andromeda`s Gates, the set up was to build a vessel that could hold at least 5 figures.
Now, I`ve come to terms with myself that my modest building skills aren`t suited for the Gates game, I`m more experienced in building a tree or a sloped roof, then an engine of a lasercannon, but that doesn`t stop me from the occassional build still in this.
Combined with the facts I spend the last weeks nearly finishing my displays for the end of the year shows, and still in need of sorting a lot of material and cleaning out my `workspace` from all the other hobbies I once had, this means I`m frankly not building at the moment for the game.

The vessel is inspired on the `Sentai` style of faintly animal looking machines, common in most of those series though in this case it hasn`t been build on a specific series.
The wing `flaps` where build using stacked plates to give the impression of moveability, like a regular plane flap, for atmospheric use.
The roof of the main body is detachable to show the stations inside the vessel.
As is the pilot canopy
It was a fun thing to build, but I really had the nagging in the back of my mind that this just wasn`t `my comfortzone` for trying to build and develop something around. I saw and learned some valuable things so far in this story, but for now, I got one build still ready (The Machine Buffalo), which I`m holding back for when it`s going to be a `battle` on a contested planet, as that better serves the story for the build itself.
