A combination of sorts.
About this creation
So you’ve returned for more nonstop action, eh? Grindhouse style. Two-in-one. Rodriguez-Tarantino. Minus the Rodriguez and Tarantino. A transport starship and a starfighter. Hopefully these creations will temporarily satisfy your MOClust, your strange need for crazy Lego satisfaction.

MOC added: May 29th, 2007

   The project clicked in my head while I was browsing a few of Kyle Vrieze’s works, in particular his

Armed Shuttle

and

Anti-mech Assault Fighter




Enlarge image
   Some obvious details I stole were his use of missile racks. Also, I wanted to do something with the Unitron minifigs I had.



Enlarge image
   As the project progressed though, I decided to use less yellow, and move more towards a Brian Kescenovitz-type color scheme, as is apparent on his
Mark II Artillery





Enlarge image
   Let's start with the transport, the first one created of the two.



Enlarge image
   Side auto-cannons, machine guns, and two 8-magazine missile racks, not to mention two M.O.A.B.’s and you got doom itself.



Enlarge image
   Bley is not the bane of my existence. Rather, I appreciate the fact that my creations no longer look uniform in color. Between the two MOCs, only 8 bley pieces were used.



Enlarge image
   Goldman’s advice of rebuild, rebuild, rebuild was actually useful. I could’ve posted a much uglier version of this MOC. Goldman actually spared you pain. Don’t expect that to happen ever again.



Enlarge image
   Pitcock madness.



Enlarge image
   The shovels as viewscreens idea came pretty much out of nowhere. I’m partial to them. The cockpit looks good with and without them in my opinion.



Enlarge image
   When the cockpit opens, the shovels (viewscreens, mind you) fold out to allow the pilot in and out.



Enlarge image
   After seeing the actual Grindhouse movie, specifically Planet Terror by Rodriguez, I’d say he was highly influenced by Goldman’s
Food Pope

How else could Goldman have been so dead-on with his dauntingly accurate portrayal of plague zombies?



Enlarge image
   A main problem posed early on in this creation was “How am I going to get the engines to turn?” I had to use some interesting SNOT techniques seen here.



Enlarge image
   And you thought those bombs were fuel tanks. Shame on you.



Enlarge image
   Interior cabin.



Enlarge image
   The underside shows the secondary engine used primarily for VTOL.



Enlarge image
   Flashbang grenade launchers. Smoke Dispensers. Chaffe countermeasures. Additional thrusters. Whatever you think there are. Remember, there are no wrong answers.



Enlarge image
   Hot-diggity-dog.



Enlarge image
   Cabin space for seven. Cramped. But Lego men don’t have feelings.



Enlarge image
   Onto the second feature presentation.



Enlarge image
   The checkerboard pattern on the nose is meant to confuse you. “When I first saw this, I thought it was a racer.” I would ask if you were thirsty. Yes? How about a nice glass of shut the hell up.



Enlarge image
   No, it doesn’t vibrate.



Enlarge image
   Although I’m sure you wish it did.



Enlarge image
   The rocket pods give the creation a strange hover-tank feel, at least this is what I thought when I first attached them.



Enlarge image
   This creation also utilized more SNOT, specifically, the engines.



Enlarge image
   The starfighter was the second, much faster build. I like how it came out in regards to similarities with the transport.



Enlarge image
   The antenna on the top was put there to specifically piss you off.



Enlarge image
   Landing gear on the bottom ruled out all space for any serious bottom greebling.



Enlarge image
   “What’s with all the translucent, round 1x1 lights, man?” Don’t ask. I have a light fetish.



Enlarge image
   Just how many 3/4ths views can you put on a single MOCpage? I bet this one sets the record.



Enlarge image
   Engine intake shot, as well as a view of the side cannon and missile pod.



Enlarge image
   I keep telling all of you. Hinged cockpit glass. It’s a requirement starting now. Do you think F-18 pilots would like it if their cockpit glass fell off onto the ground, shattering into millions of shards? No, and your Lego men don’t either, despite my previous statement.



Enlarge image
   After the completion of the MOC, I couldn’t decide if I liked it better with a longer or shorter nose. Thus I developed a modular system in which the nose can become elongated with a simple addition.



Enlarge image
   I call it a sensor package.



Enlarge image
   One might say that I have overused the long nose/cockpit/engines design. You may be right. But actually you’re not.

These are excellent, Jon. I like the fighter more...it's sleeker and has more agressive intakes. The long nose version looks like an SR-71 Blackbird. Great work and of course, nice color scheme...;-)

Ooh... two for the price of one! I like the fighter more. It uses that canopy nicely. The little checker pattern on the nose is cool, too.
