Well, I'll be, I didn't procrastinate in my revamp of this ship! I fixed up the engine section, which was lacking, as well as a bit of underbody work. Also, the pics came out nicer. Hope you enjoy the touch up.
This should have way more likes! Anywho, I love those inside-out tires for engines. They look realistic and I honestly have not seen anyone do that yet. Also love the technique for the opening canopy. The ship itself has a very sleek and tough look that goes well with that Blacktron theme you seemed to be going for. A most excellent build my friend!
Thank you for the C&C Jesse, I always appreciate suggestions on how to improve. Unfortunately I have no more black tiles, between this and my Black October. (I like to keep them built for as long as possible) The other problem, is the nose piece. Do to the large slope on the top, even if I tile the rest of the ship, many studs would still be visible along side the slope and would ruin the effect. Perhaps one day this will be truly reworked and actually built SNOT, because, believe it or not, this build wasn't meant to make it to the pages, just a technique experiment.
I like this remake a lot better than your first version of this fighter. I especially love the unique lifting mechanism of the cockpit window as seen in a more recent posting of yours on MOC Pages. It's a very cool technique and I thank you for sharing it with us on MOC Pages. I haven't seen a lot of space craft with that particular kind of configuration on MOC Pages. However, if there's one more that your fighter needs, it's some more tiles to give it more of a SNOT-like appearance. If you fix that, then you'll have a really great fighter craft, Aidan.
I did indeed, although it was mostly so I could take better shots, since the bottom-most cannon clear the ground on a flat surface by about a millimeter with the gear down. Anyway, glad you like the ship.
