FF-404 Avenger
To the stars! Where none dare venture!
About this creation
The United Space Militaries required a smaller superiority fighter to venture further into the void. Though the impressize service records of the former Aurora and Havoc fighters proved their worth, the USM needed smaller, more compact ships that still packed the same heat as their predecessors. A contract was issued to creat a new ship-based fighter that could fit neatly into smaller service bays and make the most of the space on the newer carriers.

Many companies tried to fulfill the contract, but in the end, Flicker Shipyard's new Avenger model proved to be exactly what the USM had in mind. The Avenger was blazingly fast and manueverable and was armed with two Vulcan machine guns mounted under the outer wing pylons and a single, slow-firing gauss cannon for dealing damage to heavier prey. The are also two laser-guided missiles under the outer wing pylons, though these can be interchanged with other ordinances should the mission require it.

Yes, these are dark-bley skis flipped upside down and arranged around those bowl pieces with light blue 3-wide radar dishes pushed in. I really like how this design turned out for engines.

Underneath you can see the weapons and the workings for the Avenger's "secret"...

Yep, I designed the engine nacelles to swing in and out. In for normal flight and landing on carriers (they have to fit neatly on a standard 32x32 baseplate as that is my new standard for "is it too big?") and back for speed and attack! This shot shows the difference more clearly between flight and attack modes.

Here's another comparison to show the transition. I really need to figure out how to make an animated gif file to show it better.

Thanks for looking!

Quoting Matt Mason Very, very nice fighter! Also, I couldn't help but think 'Error 404' because of the title... Wait, that wasn't your inspiration for the name, was it?
LOL, no, but that's funny!

That is one slick looking fighter, I like the adjustable engines, the cockpit details and the angular look.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Gorgeous fighter. Sleek and effective. Personally, I would have mounted the engines in the speed position permanently, as it looks better, and the swing-wing engines don't really save enough space to matter. That's just my opinion. Still good function, and I imagine being able to change configuration on the go is quiet handy. It has such a nice shape! Nicely done. ^Blub^
Thanks for the comment! Actually the nacelles swinging forwards allow it to land on a standard 32x32 baseplate and if the nacelles are back it hangs over. I'm trying to get my fighters to be more compact and "fighter-like" instead of huge. Thanks for the input though!

Quoting Tim C Another awesome build, Zach. This is a very creative ship. Like your color choices. I have yet to see that style for the thrusters. Very much an original and effective idea. I love how those skis pull off the look. And the Avengers little secret is awesome. I like how it changes the entire look of the ship.
Thank you very much for your comments! I am very glad you enjoy the Avenger. I really worked hard on this one and I'm glad it shows.
