One of the few ships I am really proud of. I had actually originally intended for it to be in minifig scale, but it just grew out of proportion and I deiced to put a Technic dude in the cockpit. Unfortunately, I had just spent the time to make all the dark red highlights and Mr. Technic was blue. I spent further time doing a paint job that doesn't look bad if you squint at a distance. Oh, and no need to beat me up for the horrible stickers- already did it to myself.
The theory behind this ship was police obviously. We see all the war machines and soldiers, but we never got to see local militia. The colors indicate that the time period is that of the Old Republic, and I gave it a closed cockpit because the one place I could think of that would need police is Coruscant. With all that high flying and perhaps some straying out of the atmosphere, it becomes necessary to have something between you and the elements.

Hey, haven't seen a technic scale creation for a while.

I like it. Very neat shape, cool colour scheme and clever construction. Pretty nice greebling, too.

The only thing I'd nag about are the engines. They look really small and awkwardly placed; too close to the pilot to my taste.
The place is optimal, though, so I wouldn't perhaps move the engines anywhere. However, I would make them larger and more greebled.

Quite good craft, overall, I'd say. I'd be proud, too, if I built this.

I think you've got the starts of an extremely cool little ship. I think the shape and the greebs and the detail and all that is great.
However, my only suggestion would be to neaten up the colour scheme a bit. I think it looks a bit odd with the front white, the back gray, and all with dark red highlights, if you can get a smoother mix I think it'd be be great, or maybe try all one colour, with two highlights. I don't know.

Anyhow, this is a great model you've got, I'm interested to see what you bring to us next.



And I only just noticed the TECHNIC gun things on each side, I like them.

I've always thought a SW police vehicle would be interesting to see. Nice MOC and nose technique!

Yea, the engines do look a little small and pathetic. Talking about the color scheme though, I have a dilemna. I don't have enough of any color of any piece to make it look good, maybe I just need to look around some more. Thanks!

Well then I won't mention the differences between the front and rear color schemes. I understand how frustrating it is to have limited parts in certain (or sometimes all) colors.

I appreciate how you did the plate sandwiching. And the way you did a mostly all studs out construction. I don't see alot of models built in that manner these days. Good job.

The different colors on it make it look older and like it had seen action. So I would leave it the way it is. Unless you really want to make it all one color.

Well I looked around and tore apart a bunch of other ships, but I think it was worth it. It looks much classier and cleaner. Unfortunately, I could not get the area surrounding the cockpit nice and white, I don't have this piece in white, which is all I need. Oh well.

Looks definately better.

However, the white body might look a tad too plain. In the earlier version the grey balanced the colour scheme, but now..
I would suggest adding some dark red highlights here and there, perhaps mostly on the back wings.

Very well done!

It really is shaping up to be a great ship!
