Mantis Gunship
An anti-mecha Gunship armed with heavy magnetic rail-guns.
About this creation
The Mantis was originally built as a microscale spacecraft, I liked the layout so much I tried to increase the scale to mini-fig. It turned out pretty well and I'm happy with it.

Built: 2006
Current Status: Intact

   If you see this hover over a tree line you might be in trouble. Cute pilot though!

   Big heavy guns.

   The trailing aerial like structures are sensor jammers.

   Side profile, very military ain't it?



Enlarge image
   Three engines in a pyramid pattern make it very agile.

   The smaller gun under the cockpit is just in case an infantry soldier stands his ground instead of running!



Enlarge image
   It's just a cockpit, guns, sensor jammers and engines, it needs no useless 'pretty bits'.

   If you get to see this view then you're probably on the same side.

   Upside down it looks like it's curled up to die!

   Go on tickle it's belly!

   Next to the original micro-scale version.

   It's like it's had a baby!

   Awww! Cute.

   "Hi! My name it Lt. Commander Wulff. I kill Mecha for the Mobile Infantry. HooRah! If you would like to date me then you have to have a bigger gun then I've got! Good luck."

As good as your others, no better. None of your creations could be improved. But, try to compete with Dan Jassim! I really think your'e better with the smaller ships and he's better with the bigger.
