This fighter is mainly inspired by the Swedish Airforce SAAB JA37 Viggen and the GDI Firehawk from Command & Conquer. The base of bricks are the Indy sets and the Separatist Gunship set.
About this creation
The aim was to create a sleek fast-looking fighter with aerodynamic characteristics. The fighter can be deployed from a battle cruiser in orbit for strike missions on a planet surface.

The topside bombdoors open to reveal a deadly load of 16 Blue Serpent rockets.
The under side: I did not manage to build folding landing gear, this time looks went before function... The fighter is armed with two Bunker Busters which are very effective against the dug-in subterranean Space Skull bases.
JA37 Viggen was one fine airplane but I think yours is even better! Talk about nailing it! Wow. Detailed, lovely shape and killer- builing technic! Love the bomb-doors, that´s a great thing to do. I like when there´s a function hidden, I just wish I could do that myself.. I understand why the pilot seems so happy, I would too if I had the chance to fly this steal bird. And one more thing, great top picture! cheers!
Besides the plain awesomeness, I think the landing gear was really cool. At first glance, I thought this was a regular space ship with just feeties for landing gear, but it's kind of like a modern fighter in some aspects. I don't see that much :P
Pure awesomeness. Great use of those saucer parts, and I like how you used them to frame the engine. The nose is very well done, especially considering how difficult it is to work some of the pieces you used to build the guns into its sleek profile. Amazing work.
Oh dude! This is simply gorgeous! The color scheme is a winner, the shape is unbeatable, the swirh back wings rear, fastened to the round fuselage section is just spectacular, lol. And playability perfect as usual with your stuff, the wheels are just great also. I always want to use wheels, but end up with rocket legs instead. The ones you used are just sweet. This ship just rules!
A great day for spaceships on MOCpages! Parrington Levens, and then you, have posted EXCELLENT ships. I love everything on this one, from the general shape (which reminds a bit the 6929, maybe I'm obsessed by this set lol), to the color-scheme (to my knowledge, only Cole Blaq had done a dark green ship before). The circular section of the back is really well done, the hidden guns are a great features. Epic win !
Tired of skull-ships huh? Love this one, the dark green works great here and underlines the dashing appearance. Just not sure about those target-seeking cannons. Turrets and stuff work for slow vehicles, but on a high-speed fighter craft?
What Space Pirate said was good. However, if I might point something out, you might want to use some small folding LEGO pieces on your wheels and some more greebling might be needed on your fighter but other than that, I like the design of the fighter.
