Voidfighter
Joining the countless other Voidfighter entries for the FBTB Contest, I present my interpretation.
About this creation
November 2005

-----

You're probably aware of the Voidfighter contest at FBTB. How could you not be? Brickshelf is filled with gallery upon gallery of Voidfighter mocs. Dark grey, black stealth mode, curvy wings, big engines. Numerous interpretations of a ship which was described only in writing in the form of an introductory story for the contest. Each builder was given nearly free reign in designing and executing the design of the ship within the few details given about it.

Builders came out of the woodwork to share their vision of the Voidfighter. Most seemed to stick with a traditional 2-wing starfighter aesthetic, despite the story never limiting the number of wings. Some were chunky, some sleek. Some neat construction techniques were exhibited, and others were remarkable in their complexity.

The contest began at the start of November, but for the 3/4 of the month I was busy finishing up the Shroom Rock. With just about a week and a half left before the contest deadline, I finally began rough work on my interpretation of the Imperial Voidfighter.

Construction pics can be seen in this folder.

Most of the work took place over the last couple of days in a furious marathon build to finish it in time for the contest. The entire thing just came together in a way I was happy with: part Imperial shuttle, part completely new fighter. I think it really looks like something the Empire would manufacture.

   Early renditions of the moc had folding wings like the Lambda-class Imperial shuttle. For the sake of wing strength and size, that idea was ultimately abandoned.

   That top tailfin went through so many changes from beginning to end. In nearly every progress pis it changes size and shape. The one I finally settled on wasn't too tall or too long, and looks similar to the one on the Theta-class shuttle from Episode 3.

   Bugge says it looks like Dumbo. It's true, it does.

   A nod to the Sith Infiltrator with the cockpit shape and striping.

   Gunz.

   Two thrusters in the end of either wing, as the story suggested.

   How the pilot gets in. Unconventional, ridiculous, but way fun.

   The little nubbin on the pilot's helmet jacks into the little hole at the back of the cockpit, as per the story description.

This is one of the coolest mocs I have ever seen from you, and my inspiration for my Police Speeder rear (check my gallery). I'm not loving the way the pilot sits, but the opening cockpit, wings, and weapons are incredible! Great job. It really almost looks like something made by the imperial shuttle company. ;)

Well, I can honestly say that I don't like the way the wings are rounded on the ends like that, but The design is great otherwise. I love the cockpit and the way it opens, and as usual (for you) the building techniques are superb and the level of detail is amazing. Great job!

Wow! Just wow! Love the colors. Love the design. Excellent use of SNOT on the wings and I really like the angles. Good luck on the contest!
