A Saurian fighter craft based upon the Crossgen comic, Sigil.
About this creation
So, quite some years ago, I was living someplace with access to a comic book store and I was gathering up all of the issues of the Crossgen comic, Sigil, which is a really nice sci-fi comic series that tragically ended in mid-story. Anyhoooo, I felt inspired to build a fighter based upon the lizard-race, Saurians, in that series. Their primary colors were gold with a touch of sand green. Since Lego did not have gold pieces at that time, I used yellow and sand green. If I were going to do this over, I would do tan and sand green. The minifig head is the Croc figure from Lego Batman, and the armor is from the Knights Kingdom which seemed the closest to an alien flight suit and helmet.
Considering how long ago I built this, I am surprised at myself at how well I used SNOT construction and intelligent color usage, despite the odd color combo. This MOC has a very high swooshability factor, and still decorates my swoosh shelf. The tail wings to either side of the engine can tilt 90 degrees; I do not know why, but they do. I am guessing for maneuverability in atmosphere: it's all alien technology to me.
By the way, this is a studless build. Sweet. But, it fails in the landing gear department. It is a very small ship and it just relies sitting on its belly when landed. Oh, wait, I think I see a few studs showing. Okay, it is a less than 10 studs build. Sweet.
I read a little of that series, and was amazed by the quality of the ship designs. My personal favorites were the human fighters in book 1 -- my starfighters have some of the same design cues as those ships. You did a good job replicating the look of the Saurian ships, with their curved lines and forward blades. Nice work!
Here's a story: a while ago, someone else also tried building this ship (I don't think it's on MOCpages anymore, though). When I saw it, I liked the colors so much that I decided I would someday build my own MOC with them, and my VOAT boat is finally the result of that. So, I guess you could say that this ship's colors actually inspired those of the VOAT boat. Thanks for the comment!
