Nimrod Class Mining Fleet Defender
The Nimrod Class fighters are designed to defend cargo ships transporting minerals from the Outer Rim mining planets. A short range, swift fighter stationed on board the big transport ships to be launched under an attack from raiding space pirates. I continue being lazy, the only sets used this time are the Granite Grinder, the Boulder Blaster and the Thunder Driller from the Power Miners line. The canopy and the pilot's black visor are borrowed. Rate and/or comment please!
About this creation







This fighter is crammed with weapons leaving little comfort for the pilot. Twin turbo lasers, four missiles and a small EMP cannon in the front between the pylons.




The rest of the ship is basically a big engine making it real fast (and short range!). Thanks to my bro Jake who came up with the idea for the exhaust.


The Space Mining Corporation has built small support stations like this all over the system in case of an unplanned stop. Contains radar array, fuel drums, ammo crate and frozen burgers.


Thanks for watching...

Nice one! I like the idea of transforming the Power Miners theme into something...spacey. The combination of lime green and orange underlines the aggressive persona of this neat fighter.

nice job! it looks a little like that bounty hunter's speeder from attack of the clones. I like the engine a lot. 5/5

WAAAAAYY Better than any Power Miners set I've seen. The huge engine and multiple weapons make it look awesome!

Quoting Space Pirate and I guess the engine would work just fine to broil those frozen burgers ^^
That's the general idea... Thank you all for commenting and being nice!

I agree, Powerminers just got their ticket to the cool- department! This is great! Nice colours and the shape is brilliant! You have really succeed to get the "powerminers"- look! I have to say that the thruster is great ;) and I just love the little "side-dish" next to the ship! Må väl!

Very nice! The cover picture really doesn't do this MOC justice, you know. Great shape and colouring, I love all the weapons you managed to cram into it, particularly how you integrated the bionicle EMP gun. That engine certainly means business! :)

If that's a fighter, you'll go bankrupt soon! I don't know why, but I love the engine. Good day
