Being on the fringe is great, but what happens when blacktron pirates attack? Simple, hit 'em back just as hard. The exploriens aren't known for being great fighters, but after numerous attacks, they decided to fight back. Creating the first fighter craft of their kind, after capturring a black tron avenger, they scrapped most of it, applied their own technology and this is the result. A quad winged ship with 4 blasters and enough speed to survive any encounter.
About this creation




A cockpit view. The ship's primary controls are almost toosimple, controlled by control sticks with two panels with read outs of ship's systems as well as a targetting computer.











It was a real joy to re-visit explorien stuff again, even more as I got to borrow the design of my favorite blacktron ship. I didn't do the glove cockpit for 2 reasons, I didn't have enough blue canopys to pull it off well, and in the end I decided I liked this look alot better. Please take a minute and tell me what you think.

Quoting Daz Hoo Got to admit that this does look like a Explorien set, so good job on the shape and the color scheme. The pictures do give me the impression that the construction is a little flimsy, but I might be wrong on that. Anyway, good job on that MOC!
It's actually very sturdy, I just didn't build anything to hold it up. The wings fold out but can't hold the weight due to the hinges and such. It was a fun build though, lemme tell ya.

Quoting Parrington Levens a nice design mate, cs meets exploriens...
Thanks Parrington, appreciate your input. Debating what to do next. Not sure what though. I have a lead on about 1k legos for 100 bucks. The future wife is trying to convince me to make a city, but that's alot of time and effort for osmething that'll be destroyed one day.

Lookin good Jeff. You don't see to many Explorien models these days, and you really nailed the look.

One of my favorite cockpit windscreens of all time, I have several in red but only a few blue. I may have to do some builds with these when I get done with my current large project...
