About this creation
This model was rife with issues and I nearly gave up last weekend but my desire to see it completed won out. It may look simple, and for some it may actually be, but I had a difficult time getting the wings and cockpit to look just right, and there were numerous structural issues that had to be hashed out. The usual details are present: fully functioning landing gear, opening canopy, and greebles.

The design is inspired by an SF3D model I had many years ago the Fledermaus (bat). As this is a prototype the color scheam is not one that would be used in battle. Once I have some time I will build the battle version in black.

   The rear engine greebles. Sure the engine bell is small but rest assured it provides plenty of thrust.

   Does the front landing pad look a little lame, well in my rush to finish the model I forgot to remove the prototype landing pads.

I am very surprised this was on MOTD and very surprised it got any comments. This was a prototype build for the flying mouse and is not the best build. I very much appreciate the comments!!! Thank you very much

I like the profile. It's the same ship profile as my Militarized T Frigate.

Ah, I thought I recognised the style. You're that X-wing feller. I've always loved that design and I'm happy finding you here. I love this new one. Pretty impressed that you managed to get a working landing gear in there!

Why do I get the feeling "Fellow" wasn't the original word used...

Yep, she's short, little but I'd have to disagree with the ugly. Love the intakes and rear-end action! Thanks for sharing! Cheers! ~ Paul.

It might have taken you a long time, but being creative is no easy task. Good job with the ship and keep on building.
