The Dreadlocks are parasite creatures,
they invade humanoid races,
even after the body has died,
they keep on inhabitating them...
They build bases inside asteroids,
and underneath planets s crusts,
stealing other races s technologies.
Their fighter ship is small, but, fast.
equipped with lasers, pulse rifle cannons,
smart missiles and torpedoes.
But, their most 'dreaded' weapon is the
Fixed in the center of the craft,
it protects from small weapons s fire,
or a one shot kill by a big one.
It also serve as a weapon, remote controlled
magneticaly to shred enemy hulls...
Their prefered modus operandus is to siege enemies,
while depriving them of their air supply,
in order to capture technology and most bodies that they can...
But, against bigger ships, the shield-blade can also be exploded,
to provoque maximum damage, or total destruction!
The fighters have a complement of 2;
a pilot, and a gunner.
They have a strange adoration of the black & white cow....
of wich they consider as being sacred!
ARTISTIC SHOTS [different lighting]
CREATOR S LOG;
so, there goes my entry in what I consider my most important contest to date,
I m not skilled in special photoshop effects, so, I used a lighted scene.
I would have loved to demonstrate it s power in space...
it will have to be at another time...
Not really my stile of spaceship, although I love the design of the engines. Mainly my favorate part isn't actually the ship but the base in which is is held. The hanger feels so grand with great looking colors. Nice job.
Wow Frank! Awesome fighter a base and a great back story, your entry has it all. Love the fighter and its awesome array of weaponry. The hanger looks fantastic . Love the sacred cow that's funny. Just brilliant!
Wouahou!! Là, y'a du boulot. L'idée de départ est super originale. Le chasseur en lui-même est excellent, inhabituel. L'ajout du hangar apporte un plus incontestable. Quant au travail sur le jeu de lumière... Un vrai bonheur à regarder. Dans le top trois.

thanks David! the ball shooter really looks to me as a reactor, xd, the alien canopy part is one of my favs, I d buy lots of it if I could, it went really well to put it all toghether.
Frank, le hangar est magnifique, vous avez vraiment allé le mile supplémentaire pour rendre la scène parfaite. Les combattants sont très agressifs en regardant, je ne voudrais pas vous amuser avec ces scies circulaires! L'éclairage est remarquable aussi, sont les lumières LEGO? ou aftermarket? Bonne chance dans le concours mon frère, non pas que vous en avez besoin!
I like it

Very cool fighter! I love the overall shape, and all of the detail. The way the canopy opens is a neat design, and your lighting pics are great! Super job Frank.
Quoting Keith Goldman
Keith, mon cher frère, merci du compliment! j ai achete ces lumieres au Costco [travail] sous le nom 'mosaic' a $30, il y as dans ce layout 2 kits, ce sont des 'leds' donc ne chauffent pas, ideal pour ce genre de chose, en plus, ils changent de couleurs, et vient avec une mannette. [remote]
Quoting Nick Pascale
thanks Nick! I liked the nova helmet, and been wondering how to use it efficiently, since I don t use the character, I found it fitted the ship s color scheme well, I can t wait to see what you re cooking!
Quoting Michael Rutherford
thank you very much Mike! xd, I really hoped so,+ it s my style to add scenes and stories, I can t help it, xd, the cows where my humoristic touch, and it fitted the skulls color wise, ATTACK!!!
imaginatively designed ship. From the main page thumbnail I thought it was a colorized version of the Slave 1 (not being familiar with this as a contest entry). Great build with lots of interesting uses of pieces like the ball shooters as engines and the alien canopies flipped up on their sides for the cockpit design.
Wow, you have outdone yourself on this one! A backdrop, a story, and a fighter! And, for some reason this triggered my mind to thinking about metal sublimation in space! Must be those close range weapons! :)
Loved your use of a base plate as a landing field and I noticed NOVA's helmet. Loved the lighting effects as well! when I do my special CHRISTMAS MOC I will be doing it differently...It will be a "ADVENT CALENDAR" of sorts...each day starting November 30 right up through CHRISTMAS DAY I will post tone of the 25 elements #25 being a shot of all the elements combined. Then on BOXING DAY I have a special treat for all my fans!
Cyberfrank. Your a menace! I love your take on the "Short Range Weapon" requirement. Nothing says "Short Range" like giant saw blades! Great narrative as well. Your use of lighting and cows to augment this entry really push the bar to the next level. Well done sir, well done! Attack!
Well, leave it to you to go in for a contest about a single ship and come out with a completely awesome base with full lighting, a fascinating alien race, and bovine worship. XD Beyond excellent entry. The ship is wicked cool by itself but, in the context of the story, it is truly spectacular. Love them shredders too. Great idea, interesting backstory, and completely clever. I'll even bet there's an entire city outside the doors. ;) Excellent!
