SF-372 Tsunami
The Tsunami is the final member of the new swing wing fighter production line from Whackemoff Stellar Enterprises Inc. Although it may be the most conventional looking of the three, it could very well be the deadliest as well.
About this creation

The Tsunami’s design is based on an older but still very popular model known as the Viper which was commonly flown by colonial forces back in the day.


In many respects, the Tsunami is much like its sister ship the Firestorm in design, crew compliment and overall combat profile.


The Tsunami carries six guns in total. The classic nosecone and canard wing lasers are just like the ones in the Firestorm.


The underside however sports two particle beam cannons for a massive damage ratio with a matching long range to boot.


What sets her apart is the massive housing for the twin fusion reactors and the new nine point multiport thruster array between them. The over-thrust capabilities, when fully engaged make this fighter the single fastest craft in human hands today!


Of course the output of the energy signature is so massive that it’s been reported one could almost see its contrail from a parsec away just with the naked eye (possibly a slight exaggeration on one’s part).


As with her older siblings, the Tsunami has the same glass-steel canopy, forward sweeping wings, and high intensity search lights. A fact that was not originally known is that the Tsunami was actually the first fighter of this line to incorporate the swing wing element in its design. After being tested in great depth, Dr. Whackemoff liked so much he had it reverse engineered into the Tornado and Firestorm which were still fixed wing fighters at the time!


An interesting phenomenon was observed by one of the test pilots when travelling at top speed with the lights on. The ship became bathed in a spectral glow leaving some to wonder what kind of astral anomaly they’re witnessing.


As like her sisters, The Tsunami is a force of nature to be reckoned with. Any foe unlucky enough to it will be laid to waste without exception. Orders for this top-notch fighter along with the rest of its kin are predicted to blow through the roof and into the stars. Just the way the good Doc likes it!


Now, a few shots of our three lovely lasses posing together for the camera.












A close up shot of our unsung hero, the stand.


This is the original design of the stand but the bottom portion blended with the wings so much it actually detracted from the pics so it had to go.

Quoting Craig Kennedy absolutely grand! Rekindles the imagination I used to have. I would love to start doing micro-stuff. My son just stated getting into Lego, and it has rekindled my passion for building. Used to do it a lot until I was 12, then I moved overseas, and my stash had to go. where do you get your parts, and what type of investment should I expect to do creations like yours? Keep on MOCing dude!
Just saw your comment/question. I try to get my sets at discount prices whenever possible. Most retial chains (like Target, Wal-Mart, Big Lots, etc.) will mark down older sets to move out the product. That's where most of my stuff comes from. Sometimes you might get lucky at flea markets or garage sales but that can be hit and miss. Be careful though. Buying large amounts of lego can get costly quickly (hundreds and even thousands of dollars) and you also need to consider storage space for your sets. However, if it keep you and your son happily builing together as a family then I'm sure any investment will be worth it.

Thanks guys, I'm glad you liked them. I am a bit surprised though. I thought more people would like this last even more than either of the first two but my first still took in the most votes. Maybe I should have posted all three together in one big page? In the end all that matters is you enjoy them for what they are.

Quoting Parrington Levens Big intakes! Nice set here dude. Helps bring the space alive...
Thanks friend. I know you prefer minifig scale fighters though, so just for you the next one is fig scaled! I have the pics, now I need to do the write-up. It should be up in a couple of days provided everything goes as planned.

Quoting David Alexander Smith They look fantastic all lined up together. Loved seeing these appear over the last few days.
Thanks, it had been a while since I did any microscale where I really enjoyed the outcome. Now that I've run out of these parts, I'll have to find something else that works.

Quoting Jon B Another lethal looking ship in an excellent series - they look great in formation!
Thanks Jon. Sadly I only have the three pieces I used for the nosecones. So if I wanted to build some more, I'll have to scrap these first and I'm not quite ready to do that.
