About this creation
As promised. Cheers to Crimso, Lord of Suntron!
A butterfly-inspired ultra-light"ray beam" fighter of the Suntron err, Empire? Suntron are good guys, right? Is it a Force? Agency? Civilization -- that's it! Whatever it is, those guys have style, no?
24 studs wide
22 studs long
6.0 bricks tall at vertical fin (4.0 @ canopy)

This one proves that not every sleek build has to hide the studs. In fact I think it looks better with them showing!
Thanks Mike. That is kinda the point of my style. To me, studs are part of the character of LEGO. The LEGO group has been hiding studs more and more over the years, but I really like the old-school sets that are not ashamed of studs, and I try to pay homage to that...

I had a hard day at work, but this brings a big smile to my face ! Great addition to the Suntron... civilization ;-)
Glad you like it! And congrats on getting a job. Even when work is not fun, it's better than not having a job, right? I made this MOC instead of studying for final exams. I had to borrow the trans-orange canopy from Tygrex, but felt it was necessary to maximize the Suntron feel. Thanks for the complements. It was so fun doing this tribute to my biggest MOCpages supporter!
I had a hard day at work, but this brings a big smile to my face ! Great addition to the Suntron... civilization ;-) (I see them as the continuation of CS and Futuron, with a bit of "hippie spirit" to make the difference). Love the insect feel and the ultra-sleek look and as usual you proves that your THE stud master. Honestly you're the only great builder I know who keeps the stud visible all the time. And it's GREAT :-)
