I wanted to create a MOC that could get a small team of special forces through a blockade to a planet's surface. I wanted a ship with a decent-sized cargo hold and I wanted it to look fast. I decided to stack two engines and have them pierce the wing. This ended up looking so-so in the photos but it looks pretty cool in real life. I tilted the wings to make the front of the ship somewhat harpoon-shaped. To contrast this, I made the rest of the ship using more rounded parts. The cockpit uses the Jango Fett Slave I cockpit, but tilted backwards. The pilot has screens surrounding him, with a control stick in the center. I felt the weapons should be retractable so I put a big anti-ship missile on either side that slides out. The missile racks are behind and on either side of the cockpit and they tilt forward. This took a lot of trial and error to get right. There is a big auto-cannon under the front that has a belt linking the ammo magazine. The landing skids retract down, but they just stabilize the ship as the main weight is supported by the cargo hold. The cargo hold has an outer round door that swings up to let the lower door down. These are on both sides to ease loading and unloading.
Overall, I am happy the way this turned out. I think it looks pretty fast. I am particularily pleased wiith the retractable missiles, as there was a lot of cussing involved in getting them right. I would have liked to have done this MOC in a stealthier looking gray-black combo, but I just didn't have the parts.
A blockade runner. Never would have thought of that. Good space for carrying important passengers and lots of weapons to defend itself. Dual engines on both sides. Missiles. Chain fed gun. ITS ALL AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
