Cuusoo of the Week: 2012.05.21-26

This is the conclusion of the first week of reviews and thus the first "Cuusoo of the Week".

Project of the Week
Anakin's Mos Espa Quarters
by crvannorman
There was some serious competition for this choice, as I imagine there will be every week.  The reason that this set one out though is that it reminds me of a set that I might actually see in the stores.  I really appreciate all the clever little nuances that go into it.  It appears highly playable when open and is aesthetically pleasing when closed.    I seriously look forward to future designs by "crvannorman."

Second Place
Douglas DC-3
by Ssorg

This aircraft continues to stun me every time I see it.  The quality of this build is certainly an equal to Anakin's and in certain ways clearly surpasses it.  Anakin's however edges it out on playability and artistic creativity.

Hexan Battleship Defiant

This ship represents the much underrepresented non-IP space craft in Cuusoo.  The build uses some nice angles and snotting and is viewable from all angles which I always appreciate. Both the Anakin's Mos Espa Quarters and the DC-3 have special features to enhance their playability though, so this, being mostly a display piece, looses out to them for Pick of the Week
