This is one of my smallest MOCs. The description at Brickshelf says it all. You can see how well it would be camouflaged.

Very cool! It would be practically invisible in the snow. It's got a very cool shape to it. Nice choice of windscreens, too. You prove it again and again: even your smallest MOCs are very impressive and inspiring.

Wow, a MoC of real brick!

This was not intended to be sarcastic, but a rejoice! It has been a while since I saw a new MoC of your's posted in real brick form.

Onto the MoC intself. A very clever windscreen, with the tie cockpit and all. I have only seen this once before, not sure where, but here it really makes the MoC.

The white colour is to be imagined by the name, and the pilot looks like he might be a little cold in his vest.

Very imaginative, very cool (pun intended)!

My guess is that it was here.

This looks like it was inspired by the PCS SLAM, but it has its own unique touches. I especially like the back of the engine. Good job. Smile

Actually spotfrog, that one is new to me! I think I saw it on a new sort of JSF posted by another member here, maybe Schism or he Schmeeb?

Schism-
As always, much appreciated.

Lord Thrawn-
I understand, and I agree with you completely. I finally have some time and some space to get the rbicks out, since they have no permanenet home in my apartment yet. And I have more 'real' MOCs coming.

All-
And here I thought my cockpit was clever. It's nice to know that the work I do would fit in with other people's MOCs too, though.

I know, the pilot does look a little cold. I should put him in one if those parkas. The ship is pretty drafty too, with that gaping crack at the front. Ah, well.

Don, I can't believe you left that gap so visible...

Lord Thrown, that windshield technique was used by me way before I even introduced the Adv.Alt project... I think I was experimenting with it in year 2000 or so.. I believe that combo set was one of the first alternate models to hit the brickshelf using such a technique. And I think Mark Sandlin (one of the coolest builders IMO) had also experimented with it around the same year too...

I know. the whole thing started with this idea for the cyllindrical cockpit. the two parts just don't come together though. Even if they did, the windscreen piece is a little more than 1/2 of a 4x4 dish anyway.

Besides, I explained it away in the description - about how the parts always freeze up.
