This is my favorite of my recent designs. I used mostly spares from a Rogue Shadow set (my fiance likes the little blonde minifigure, she likes to pretend it's her piloting this thing.) I had originally built a hyperdrive "ring" for it, like the ones for the Jedi Interceptors, but then I added the outboard "drive pods" and then the ring looked a little redundant. The legacy of the ring remains, as the hardpoint for attaching it is still at the rear between the #2 and #3 engines.

Cool design! The black looks lovely on this one. Reminds me of the Blackbird "Laura" from the new BSG series, because of the engine pods/wings. Oh, this is also a good VicViper! Great work!
Thanks! I was partially inspired by the Blackbird from the new BSG. Although, originally this ship had no outboard pods. I had initially tried making a "Hyperdrive Ring," but that eventually morphed into the pods you see now.
