For those of you unfamiliar with space pirate universe I created, check out The White Lightning first.
Aboard the Shenandoah, Rafe Tokor's raiders put the Vaptor starfighter to good use when a fleet of Moron vessels comes into the sector. Fast, tough, and heavily armed, the Vaptor cemented its reputation as one of the best in the UPDF during the Howardsternius IV revolt. Although not as versatile as the Tachyon Mark IV, the Vaptor heavy lasers and photon beam weapons are perfect for handling those pesky Moron scout fleets the UP insists on allowing use the home sector for "maneuvers."
Ok, enough backstory. This starfighter was actually going to be part of a story moc I was thinking about doing, but now that it's built I don't care much for the story anymore. In this diorama, if you will, I've tried to capture that moment just before they airlock opens and the electromagnetic docking pad is released. Various crew members go about their duties in pressure suits, mainly just to show off the fact that I do have some classic space figs that I love so much.
Holy Hyperdrive! This is one sweet hangar/fighter diorama. I love the shape and color of the fighter and the greebles really make it look mean. But what I really think makes this MOC is the hangar background. It's so well done. Really BA work here Dennis. Love it!
What? You have so much time on your hands during this dang contest, that you just have to rub it into everyone's face and most a moc outside of the contest. Sheesh. Nice build though - love the engine design. Lee.
