cockpit box, originally uploaded by nnenn.

I’ve previously blogged this creation on Fascinating LEGO model of the Day, but feel it appropriate to re-cover it here, at the passing of it’s creator, Nate Nielsen, well known to the community as Nnenn.

Up to this point, Nnenn is the only person whose Flickr photostream was in my Google Reader feed. I’ve always enjoyed seeing the many ways he could come up with to reinvent the starfighter.

This particular creation of his was a suggestion for a way to start building a starfighter — it gave you a template starting point to build out from.
