The Hugin is possibly the smallest spacecraft in existence. It is barely large enough to have engines, weapons, and a life-support system. The fighter is fast and agile, but it has no shields and no missile payloads. In space battles, it relies on speed, maneuverability, sensor and missile lock jammers, and extreme numbers to take down its foes.
I kept the Hugin's design as small and compact as possible for one main reason: I wanted to make a lot of them. Someday I plan to mass-produce these little guys and then put them all lined up in landing position (like this) inside the hangar of a huge LEGO capital ship.
I showed this ship off on my forums a while ago, for a contest there. I won the contest, but I told the people there that this might not be the final version of the ship. However, after trying very hard to make the ship completely studless but never being satisfied with it, I decided that this really would be the final version. Oh well.
As you can no doubt see, the Hugin is armed with only two weapons on each wing: a machine gun and a laser gun. The pilot has to be constantly firing at enemy fighters whenever he gets them in his sights in order for these small weapons to have any effect. But when a swarm of Hugin attacks a larger fighter, the constant barrage of firepower can take the enemy down surprisingly quickly.
THIS...IS...AWESOME!!! Dude you have inspired my creations in SO MANY ways!!! I'm going to go post mine.
I like it

I like this little fighter very much. I like how theres still the little details on it even though the Hugin is a small creation. Keep up the great work Scorp and I hope for even more great creations soon!

Great job on the Hugin. Im not to good with air crafts so, do you think you can e-mail me some pics of stuff like the Hugin or Nidhogg? If you can,thanks. If you do on my homepage I'll say that I was inspired from Saber-Scorpion.
Good but again NO MORE STUDLESS OR ALMOST STUDLESS MODELS!It takes away the LEGO look. Still a very nice fighter and looks very manuverable. I like it a lot. Keep it up Scorp BUT NO MORE STUDLESS MODELS!!
For something so small, I am actually quite fond of it. It matches your theme real well, and it looks like it can easily be mass produced. It also looks very fast/manuvarable. I just love the overall shape/design. Just because something is small doesnt mean a lot of thought wasn't put into it. Good work.
Hey, Scorp, Stormzarel here. The Hugin looks nice, though my only problem with it is that the length of it doesn't counterbalance the width of it, making it look a bit akward. Still, it looks pretty cool, and it reminds me of those Interceptors from Starcraft (Y'know, those ones on the Protoss Carrier?). Anyway, you did a good job.
