Hi everyone. This here is a remake of an old creation from 2007, before I joined the LEGO community.
About this creation
I never gave this VTOL a proper name . . . with the original creation, I thought "Mosquito" was fitting, but now it doesn't seem as appropriate. Feel free to tell me in a comment what you think it should be named.
This Heavy Assault Craft has enough firepower and strength to . . . well, do just about anything. As long as it involves a lot of explosions.
Equipped with one heavy chaingun in the rear, two dual-cannons, and one precision gun below the cockpit, you'll never want to be within this vehicle's line of sight.
In the near future, disaster has struck earth. An immense extraterrestrial force has entered our world's atmosphere, and spreads by the minute. They seem to be searching for something . . . but humans are a barrier to reaching what they came for. The Outsiders have no choice but to use force. Governments collapse, nations fall into disorder, families are split apart, and earth lies in ruins. There are small, disorganized resistances fighting to defend their home-world, but they are comprised of weak volunteers, with little combat experience. Some are fortunate enough to gain access to old military technology, such as Heavy Assault Crafts, but whether or not they can use them efficiently still remains an issue.
It can comfortably fit six minifigures (one pilot, two passengers, and three gunners).
Here's the oldie. There's a pretty big difference, as you can see.
That's all I have for now. Thanks for checking it out, and as always, you can take a look at my Flickr photostream as well.
Looks fantastic, I love it, and the minifig helmets (especially KK2) are just inspired! As for a name...is it APOCALego? 'Cuz that's what it makes me think of. Hmm...it looks like a hovercraft, how about the VTOL Thundercraft? (VTOL could mean...hmm, V-something Turbine Orbital Launch?)
Awesome. There's some nice part usage here - that whip as a cable is one example that stands out. I guess that doesn't really suprise me, I've seen what you can do with a hot dog. Wait..that doesn't sound quite right. Oh well. I like before and after mocs so everyone can see how much you've improved, and you've improved a lot. Keep it up.
