Coalition Basilisk Fighter from the game StarLancer.
About this creation
Three years. That's how long it's been since I last posted a MOC. Wow. Well anyway, I suppose it's fitting that my return should be marked with a MOC that's been in development in some form or another for at least that long.
A lot of you have probably played, or at least heard of, the game Freelancer; which I've made a few ships from (see the rest of my page). What you probably haven't heard of is the game it's a sequel to: StarLancer.
I've been planning to build the Basilisk for years now, but I never really got past the planning stage due to a lack of a good cockpit design. That finally changed once I saw the new windscreen piece from the MagnaGuard fighter set.
Rear view. You can see the wings sort of slanting backwards here, that's the result of their back section being really heavy. Bad designing on my part, in retrospect. I'm shocked they even stay attached.
"The 45th?! Bah, I go hunting for eagles but find ducks!"
A rather blurry picture of the crew. My camera always focuses on the background for some reason, no matter what I do. Grr.
Underside. In the game, this is bristling with assorted missiles and torpedoes.
I know about the game, but Iīve never played it.
I love the accuracy of this MOC, it is really close to the screenshot. Nice colour scheme! The gray looks great with the red highlights. I even like the use of different gray tones, which give the ship a nice used look!
Good work, show us more from StarLancer.

I too thought this was the Spirit from Halo. Though I have never played Freelancer/StarLancer, I really like the detail put in to this. Welcome back!
I like it
