Technically not a VOAT, as it uses way more than two colors.
About this creation
In order to demonstrate the modularness of my Central Asian Combine Gunship design, I built this alternate cockpit. My first "Actual" VOAT should appear later this summer or in the fall.
During the Fall of the Iron Reich, both the Reich and the Central Asian Combine invasion force on Das Kapital were devastated by nuclear warheads and plague zombie virus bombs. Several of the Combine's fortified air bases remained, however, the vehicles inside maintained by robotic service droids and protected by powerful automated defenses. The blood clans which ruled Das Kapital during the intervening years (2360-2426) finally gained access to these advanced machines when the automated perimeter guns failed. During the Honda-Ziplok Clan's first expedition into CAC Airbase 12, a young Priest-Mechanic was accidentally left behind in the base, working on a Gunship whose nose section had been crushed by a collapsed support. With great engineering skill and absolutely no knowledge of basic aerodynamics, he cut off the entire nose section and replaced it with the bubble cockpit of an observation VTOL. When he took off in his new ride, he found that it was wildly unstable, but by some miracle of airmanship he managed to fly it in the general direction of home, eventually arriving over a fierce battle in disputed territory.
All of the Honda-Ziplok Clan's warrior caste know about his strange craft's appearance over the skies of Municipal Block 7 during the Battle of Netflix Stadium, swerving and spiraling uncontrollably before slamming into the ground. The wild kamikaze attack which destroyed an entire Wendiz Clan armored division is remembered as one of the greatest acts of heroism of the Post-Scouring era.

Opening.

Note: Actually, this vehicle would be pretty much impossible to control. For one thing, the wide cockpit would cut off air flow to the canards, drastically reducing their effectiveness. Probable result: the ship would have no pitch control, and since the wings are placed near the back it would tend to pitch down, hence its final demise.

I missed this entirely, sorry about that. I was really entertained by the back story! (even though it kind of slams the bubble cockpit haha) Good luck with the VOAT!

The cockpit wasn't mine, the original design was actually from the LEGO group back when cockpits weren't a weakness in stock LEGO sets as well.

Yeah, this rocks ! A very interesting departure from your usual front design style. It wasn't easy, I think, to integrate this Blacktron-style cokpit into the overall design from your previous ship. It's very nicely done and give a great looking ship. Keep up the great work !
