This high performance, unarmed spaceship seats one person in its comfortable cockpit.
About this creation
This is a one person civilian craft that I originally built for the Civilian Contest on Classic Space (but again, as usual, I did not get it done and photographed on time).

   Here is a nice view showing the overall shape of the ship. This shot shows why I called the ship Tycho's Kat (or, at least, explains the "Kat" part). The body of the ship from this angle looks, at least to me, like a cat of some sort, with the scoop as the mouth, the red lights as the nostrils, and the cockpit as the eyes. (The "Tycho" bit was just in honor of Tycho Brahe, he of the accurate astronomical observations and the gold prosthetic nose!)

   Here is a shot of the ship coming right at you. Even without weapons, it is pretty intimidating, no?

   An overhead shot. This also allows you to see some of the details in the cockpit. The minifig in the cockpit, a woman with burgundy hair, is meant to be my wife - she does not build, but is very indulgent of my hobby, so I thought I would build this spaceship just for her. (If you are at Brickfest this year you might meet her, and then you can judge for yourself regarding the likeness).

   And the all important profile shot. I think this view most emphasizes the original design of the ship.

   Finally, a view from behind. The third reason for building this ship was as an exercise in SNOT - you will notice that other that a few studs where the cockpit connects to the hull, there are no visible studs at all. Most of this was accomplished using a trick Felix Greco recently pointed out here , although just about every trick I know was used somewhere.

Beautiful, in an ugly sort of way. I really like it, especially how smooth it is!

This is sweet. It really does resemble an animal's head.

Unique, to be sure. Great construction, design and ideas...I'm just not sure about the connection of the engines to the bodies. Compared to the rest of the ship, the hoses look out of place and undersized. Podracer of the future?
