For the SCI-LUG Small Starfighter Build contest on flickr.
About this creation
COMPLETED -- 01/18/2009
My first MOC of 2009 is my tiniest ever! I've been really wanting to build a Blacktron MOC for a while now and the Small Starfighter Build contest on the SCI-LUG group on flickr seemed like a nice opportunity. Trans-yellow hasn't had much support from Lego since classic space and Blacktron so I don't own a proper trans-yellow windscreen and had to use what I had. So now that I've built a Blacktron MOC I finally appreciate why people love the Blacktron colors so much. I have to say that even though the actual design was better for Blacktron II, the original Blactron colors are a bit cooler. If only a trans-yellow windscreen would be a part of some Space 2009 set!
The conditions for the contest are that the ship has be no bigger than 14x14 and stand no higher than 5 bricks tall. This pic demonstrate that the conditions were met.. yay!
I'm not planning on stopping here... a mobile tank-like thing that the Lacerater could dock with is in a very early planning stage. Thanks for looking!
For the size restraints- that craft is dang near perfect and in excellent Blacktron fashion. I like the windshield area the most. It is so good, I think this ship would have been ideal as a substitute to the ship that comes with Blacktron I Message Interceptor Base. Would fit in the hanger too. Or could make a good stand a-lone set. W/e the case- nice job.
I agree, Lego should start using more trans-yellow in its space sets. Very nice little Blacktron ship, especially considering the lack of an actual canopy piece and the size limitation. The little claws make it look evil!
