I think I see your inspirational source, and it can only be confirmed by the name 'HORNET'... Gotta be an Apache attack helicopter XD (I know it's the hornet from Halo, I'm just kidding)

Quoting Gab BOIDOT 0 studs + 3 principals colors + 2 great propulsors design = 5/5 !!
Thanks for the kind comments! Lego is such a great medium of expression, it allows me to be lost in my own world. I've never been more blissful than when building MOCS. Having said that, I would one day like to build the Hornet in grey...just need a few more trips to the local Lego store....

That's definitely a different design. Neat way to build the engines! I may have to borrow those. ^Blub^
