This speeder is used by The Regulators for some quick recon as well as a primary transport when traveling between saftey check points along the Nevada/Arizona border.
About this creation










May 29th..ish

So in looking at it, I sort of realized i was going for a dagger look. I think I accomplished that. All the little details and stuff don't show up but I did try to give the thing logical parts, the control stick went through 3 incarnations, #1 was a normal stick I guess it would be an antenae? Spelling is terrible, #2 was actually a steering wheel. Sorta glad I didn't use that one. #3 was the modern control stick thing, and It's pretty awesome, I tend to use those for alot of creations, except for the star raven, what's that you ask? Well sir or lady feast your eyes on the glory that isn't: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/268438 I used/borrowed/stole the land speeder control from the clone..pack..thing the only really usefl thing that came out of that set, save for more guns, anywho, the speeder is the start of an idea, I'm not sure what kind, but one that I want to happen. Sure, that makes sense. And yes, I used this moc to shamelessly plug my other moc. It's my favorite creation I've built since I built a pitiful but glorious looking bat cave back in 1993. ((I'd like to point out that I won first place with that at the local fair, h-yuck.)) Regardless, take a look throw some ideas at me, tell me it looks like crap, I know I'm terrible at taking photos but I'm working on it. Anywho, 1am rant#2 over. Jm out.

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 it s real cool! had you tried narower behind the driver? otherwise the lines are sharp, and agressive! the details make it look realistic! great work!
I thought about making it narrow in the rear, but I sorta scratched that idea. Here's why, the narrow start, was intended to be the shape of a dagger, edging out into a hilt, and eventually the handle..grip, yada yada, so in theory it would be "Cutting" or "Stabbing" when it entered combat. I realized that I made this thing a combat speeder, and I added a side cannon, I wanted to add more, but I thought that it would take away from the creation as a whole by throwing a bunch of weapons on something that is basically a "run and go" vehicle. The other speeder I made for alloy strike was designed with the intention of being able to hold the regulators as they deal out justice, I scrapped the idea mostly because I didn't want to build another speeder. I'm more of a space ship kinda guy, speeders are a toss in the dark. The exception to this of course is, (shameless plug here) the post apoc speeder I built. I try to give all of my creations a "real feel" to it. Now I know that seeing something like (Shameless plug 2) the star raven in my lifetime is impossible, but it's something I could see folks cruisin' the cosmos with.

It's pretty big vehicle, but suits the driver perfectly. I hope it'll appear in some other MOCs, too.

Quoting Michael Rutherford Commander McElwee. Itís a very powerful looking machine. I agree with our colleague. A neutral background of some type might help the presentation a bit. Also, more light would allow the view to better appreciate all the detail you have packed into this thing! I dig it. Build1 Post! Review! Attack!
Thanks gang, I uhh, heh, I was "working" and sorta got out the lego box and just started putting pieces together. And well..this was the end result. Thanks for the commenting, and I promise, I really am trying to take better pics. :D

Cool speeder! You photos would look better if you took them in an all-white background or something like that, using a baseplate looks pretty cool. See here: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/255251 and here: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/258287
