Crayfish MKV - Often nicknamed "The Jack" after the 20th century Jack in the Box, due to its ability to pop in on its opponents unsuspected and deal massive damage. A small craft that is not to be underestimated for speed, it's armament is made of 4 GE Protocannons which is also mentionable. This version has been modified for speed by removing all physical means of control from the cockpit, it is most commonly controlled by thought, voice commands are rare though installed for the frail minded. The engine block has also been modified to include a secondary power generator.
About this creation
Created around February 2010, the Crayfish MKV was my 6th or 7th LegoŽ creation. At this point in time, I had placed an order or 2 from Bricklink, as well as getting a few LegoŽ sets for Xmas, I had a few extra parts to use. It was entered into "The Intergalactic Space Rally", a private contest between brothers, so I built something that looks speedy. When handled, the body reacts like a Crayfish, hence its name.
These first 2 pics should give you a small idea into how the body contracts.
Close up on engines
Landing mode. Cockpit, gives a little of a "Take me to your Leader" sense.
