This is the Hastati (a type of Roman infantry) my second Victorian MOC (the first one got trashed). The Hastati is a product of the VicTeck corporation, which I plan to give a back story for when I can be bothered.
Here we see the important 'V'shape, I can just imagine a fleet of these flying over a recently liberated city or something, showing everyone that Victory saved them.
The belly of the beast.
Yes I know the ship is up side down, but this is a space ship!.
The 'nose' of the ship, let me tell you if you where a Xarkon bomber pilot you would not want to see this, well hopefully your death would be quick and painless (no guarantees).
The rear, I wanted to do a V-shaped Victorian engine, but it didn't work. Do you see that little gray bit just behind the cockpit? That is where the counter measures are lunched from.
It is very compact and detailed. It incorporates the 'V for Victory' nicely. All in all, it's a really good ship, but has too many weapons for such a small vehicle. If you either reduce the weapons or make the ship bigger, it will be a 5/5. Of course, I prefer my Arbalest, but I'm biased.
