Venus Shrike
About this creation
One of the most feared starfighters in the galaxy, Venus Shrike is a mysterious fighter, much like the Venus Gospel. It is a part of the Venus Collective. Little is known of them so far.

This MOC is inspired by Cole Blaq and Rong Yiren.

Its main armaments include two heavy Gauss guns and four rocket pods of unknown type. In combat it has immobilized targets with its rockets and finished them with its Gauss guns.

Its body shape is of an unknown design.

A particularly striking feature of the ship is its triangular optics.

Starboard view.

Scientists are baffled by its propulsion system. However, it is speculated that it works by manipulating dark matter.

Alternate wing position. This increases its speed at the cost of maneuvreability.

Is that a bad thing?

Quoting Steef de Prouw Very nice design, very sleek. It's almost a bit clinical, which makes it somehow more mysterious and menacing. I like the three trans pieces in front. Are those lights or canopies? I also like the square cannons. One thing though: I'd say that in combat, it is more likely to work in reverse order than what you're proposing. Using the gauss guns (as it stands for magnetic induction) to immobilize its enemies, and then finish them off with the rockets ;)
Which part are you asking about if they are the lights or canopies? The trans-light blue pieces are intended to be biological eyes. Perhaps in combat it would do as you have said, but I dunno. I like to imagine that the missiles have magical sleep inducing powers :)

Quoting teh teabagger And you're arrogant because you're popular among the mech crowd--sounds like you're perfect for one another. By the way, are you so afraid of my comments that you have to delete them? Or are you worried that I might have a point and you don't want other people to see what I see?
Fed's just more popular than I am because he's the poster boy for all of the Clone Wars fans here. Who are you, really? Do you have anything better to do with your time than harass Lego builders over the internet? Why don't you do something more constructive like building something creative and visually appealing.

This is only one of my favorite creations of yours. The grace, the proportions, the slickness - all is herein. I agree with your no-stud rule. I used to follow such rule until Legoland model builders told me it is good to show it's made with Lego bricks. But the real reason is I ran out of tiles recently for my twin towers. My mocs have gotten too big although fairly easy to assemble. It is easy to build big but too expensive, time-consuming and redundant. I am not bored... it is just time for me to go nano.

Quoting Knoll grey i don't know how the pronounciation would be spelled, but i think thats right. its like cow with a "G" and a hard "S" on the end.
I've sung songs in German, I think I would know how to pronounce the name.

Quoting Commander Faelo Hm I read your list of favorite builders on your page. Have you heard of commander Fed? He's really cool. Check out his "Dawn's end".
Yeah, we argue a lot. I don't think he's that great of a builder. He's just arrogant because he's popular among the Star Wars crowd.

Life is like a bucket of bricks. You seem to run out of the good parts too quickly and are stuck with the boring and useless pieces. But the good builder is always able to find a clever use for them. Anyways. Great fighter, this is really how I like legos. Smooth, sleek, futuristic. Like Rong-Yiren's stuff as well as Moko's (mostly Rong's though). Fantastic build and congrats on starting your own theme. Keep on building ~ Nowhereman

You said that Venus things are living. Now, that's just awesome because a ship that has it's own will is dang cool! Somehow this sort of reminds me of a banshee from the Halo series..

now that just awsome,10of10,they have a game were you play as a pilot and use a ship just like yours except it's kinda brownish with a hint of dark shading maby you've played it or maby even own it,the title of the game starts with a X...and then a LOT of letters fowllowing that i just have the demo so it's really not all that special,the reason i bring that game up is because your ship i like an exact replica...

"very good and i wonder why you werent nice in the comment in todays M-OTD? you should be glad the 7 year old got the M-OTD..... and for others who didnt see it Dalis comment: seriously? this got MOTD? I see a few bricks that aren't snapped into place. Come on be nice to the kid".....I have to lol at this comment. That MOTD was a multi-colored hunk of plastic. Back on topic, that is one awesome MOC. I love the 3 eyed look in the front. It gives it an alien look, as if it was built by an unknown species far beyond our known glaxy. It has an great color scheme too. The armanent of Guass cannons and missles are pretty good. The description is informative aswell to the backround of this amazing starfighter. A+

Nice! Its like a starfighter version of the machine gunning, guitar playing Venus Gospel! Looks pretty darn cool as well. I like that bit at the back with the propulsion system, and the idea of using dark matter to make it fly. You like this kind of organic mech/fighter. Is it like genetic engineering?

My Venus Assembly MOCs are kind of based on EVA series from Neon Genesis Evangelion. The "creature" underneath is black colored and it's some sort of cybernetic organism.

Quoting Toby Heinemann This is excellent. It reminds me of 'Soylent Scream', which is definitely not a bad thing. A very compact fighter design, it has a very unique shape, and the colors work together very well. The weapons, too, are well designed and complement the shape, which is something I had trouble doing with my last fighter design.Great job!
Thanks! I wanted to make an organic looking starfighter and I thought of Soylent Scream as a good example.

Quoting Calvin . Wonderful MOC. I love the 'triangular optics' and the shape of the front. Oh, and one question. Was http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/105926 your inspiration?
Yes, I cited Cole Blaq as my inspiration.
Quoting Xiazeran . The triangular optics are very cool. It's also of note that this ship looks somewhat like a whale. "Thar' she blows!"
It does look like a sea creature of some sort, or a bird, or both.
