About this creation
MOC Background:

I've been building this thing off and on for about 8 months now. She's brought me joy and anger, sadness and rejoice. Her construction was at times tricky, but became rewarding in the end, when I finally got to the point that I was satisfied with it last night. I only wish that the camera I used was a better one. The pictures really don't do her justice.

Future Developments:

After getting some feedback via Flickr and SSLF, I will try t fix some of the mismatched greys. I also plan on adding more cargo containers on the side. Last, but not least, I want to change the fron so it's not so bland by adding a communicatio narraw where the dark grey mass of nothing is.

Statistics:
Class: Heavily modified Caribou Long-Range Cargo Hauler
Length: 70 Studs
Height: 15 Studs
Width: 26 Studs (At tips of engine pods)

Armaments:
-2 Light Pulse Cannons (One on top, one on bottom)
-1 Light Anti-Fighter Missile
-1 Medium Disruption Rocket

Remnant Arm MOC Background:

Nomad is a heavily modified Caribou-Class cargo hauler now used as a home for a crew of smugglers. Captain (Then Lieutenant) Clive Fordoen purchased the craft shortly after the Zurvanian Incident. His superior, Sergeant Robert "Bob" Kinlead, joined the crew as his engineer. As the years went on, they took on passengers to make money and look like a normal shuttling operation. Some passengers joined their crew: Mac Reaver, "Oz", Eleanor Thatchet, and Josef Harding. They did what so many crews did back then; they transported illegal goods through darkzones. As various independent governments befriended them, they routinely transported prisoners between planets and their moons.
The ship also has several communication arrays on it, allowing for constant communication, no matter where they are. This also helps to hide the various defensive weapons hidden within the arrays.
A yellow, black, and tan flag of Zurvan is painted on the ship to display that they haven't forgotten the "nonexistent" war that devastated the "nonexistent" world of Zurvan years ago.

   Huzzuh whuh?



Enlarge image
   Ay! It opens like that!

   I see you.

Enlarge image
   Communications.



Enlarge image
   The chrome thing is a similiar device to the "Crybaby" from Firefly. (It detaches from the ship and acts as a false beacon to distract authorities.



Enlarge image
   See? it comes out.

Hey Crustacean Freak! I've seen this freighter at flickr, and it's awesome. Love how it has the weird opening hatch and asymetrical cockpit window. Your hard work has really paid off on this one.

Well, I leave SSLF to try to find some inspiration for my own bomber thingy I'm building, and I see this? I'm dying to have one when I saw it one SSLF, and now it's at the top of MOCpages? Gah! The greatness... The awesomeness... The Lobster Maniac has done it again!

Now THAT's a freighter! It wears it's eclecticism well...and I agree with Nate, I like the asymmetry of the cockpit. Nice job!

That's pretty cool. The asymmetrical front gives it a utilitarian kind of look. Five smilies for you.
