About this creation
Tachyon is not a modern starfighter, however, it is equipped with modern engines and sensor system. This makes it fast ship, capable of intercepting incoming bombs, but also capable of fighting space superiority fighters. It is known also for its starts in races, as its prepared both for atmoshpheric and space flight, and massive engines otput more power than really needed for pushing Tachon's overall mass.

"When you wake it, you hear a growl. When you push the accelerator, you wonder why cockpit is between the engines, not somewhere else, like a few kilometers away. And few seconds later you stop hearing anything, probably for a long time" - Sarah Kirce, famous asteroid race pilot.

   Underside is not as clean as upperside, I know. but it is not bad for me, too :)

   Simple landing gear.

   Modern, greebled engines in classical-looking spacefighter. Who needs more?

   The cockpit is reasonably roomy, and pilot has great visibility. There are 2 joysticks, 2 control panels and a sort of monitor inside.

I have always liked this design. The color combination looks great. I had voted on this a while back but didn't leave a review, I am glad it got MOC of the day! Nice work.

Nice color use! Maybe a little bit too blocky slopes, but's that's ok. The gray (in combination with blue and yellow) is something very different thus original. (kinda back to basics.) The two wings a the siden of the cockpit, sticking out to the front isn't a very new concept (Zam Wessels airspeeder SWII). Very nice cockpit by the way!

Awesome. The shape of the fighter is pretty cool in itself, but the amazing engine greebling really seals the deal.

I like the color scheme of this ship. The blue makes it look like it's some kind of aquatic vehicle. The engines are awesome. I could spend alot of time checking out all the details.

nice...did you mean modern hull and classical greebled engines?...i think the hull is neta but the engines look almost like steampunk!;)ther are far too greebled! a fine angled, simple engine thruster would have been great... still is a nice good moc...a bit simple for you:p!

Absolutely superb. The design is anything but run of the mill. You continue to be quite an innovator and not an imitator.

Chirst. Sorry, but that was definately worth a breach of the 10 Comandments. Congradulations. Your fantastic creation forced me to go against my religion. ;)

Very nice job, awesome greebles, although I don't especially like the blue and yellow color scheme, but that's only an opinion, so it doens't interfere with my rating. Besides that, though, simply awesome! Please visit my pages, too people!

The ship design is awesome, I like how the engines are the main portion of the ship while the cockpit is just along for the ride. The black greebles in the back are a nice addition as well.
