Kitsune is a one-man SHIP (Seriously Huge Investment in Parts) equipped with bathroom, kitchen and mech bay. "Kitsune" means "fox" in Japanese. I wanted a Japanese name for the MOC, and it kind of reminded me of a fox, so there you go. The ship is about 106 studs long.
Kitsune is armed with four point-defense lasers and one large particle cannon. It carries a large cruise missile on either side of the nose, and four medium cruise missiles on the underside, in addition to the missile launchers located between the cargo bay and the powerplant.
The rear panels that flare out to the side are mounted to the center sections with a bunch of those 45 degree technic beams from the blay Millenium Falcon set. I bought a couple of those sets at Christmas when Target had them 2 for 1, so it's nice to be using those parts.
Sliding doors on each side open to reveal the mech bay. I did a better job of finishing out this area than last time, mainly tiling over studs and such. I found I didn't really have any room for repair equipment, etc.
This shot shows the door to the front of the ship open. The mech bay section of the ship is built sandwich-style with the roof and floor pointed "studs in". (Mmmmmm, sandwich...) This made it possible to tile the ceiling of the bay and get the sliding door track to work.
Kitsune can touch down on its landing skids. Apparently here it's touched down on an ice planet, which explains the wavy white background and the pilot's stylish knit cap. Either that, or they landed on some kind of huge, wrinkled white bedsheet...
