A belated entry for an unofficial moc-off against my brother. I would like to point out that it was finished on time, I just couldn't post it because MOCpages was down.
It would appear that both of our ships are racers.
You know that air intakes are absolutely necessary in space, right?
It's funny, I was really planning on having folding landing gear on this ship, and even went so far as to include some on the front, but building the rear section... Well, let's just say that Management forgot to contact Construction. Landing gear is hard.
Here they are together, so now it's up to you, the MOCpages viewing public: Which one is better?!?? Comment your answer, and like for fun!
Great job. You may want to make your ship's arrow body straighter, and to find folding landing gear, look at the Lego X-Wing and Jedi star fighter released by Lego. And tell your brother he may want to make the engines flip around for landing. Overall, great job both of you.
I like it

Thats one fast looking ship! Your attention to detail really shows, from stem to stern. Cheers, and thanks for your recent review on my MOC.
This is a great looking ship! Sort of like a colonial viper on steroids. I really like the way you've shaped the cockpit around the bubble canopy, that's a technique I might copy - if so I'll credit you!
Both the ships looks like they'd be ridiculously fun to fly. Your brother's looks like it would be more powerful and, thusly, faster; however, yours looks way more agile. It'd be like choosing between a Corvette or a 911. Think I'd take the 911. ;) I prefer the "jiggley" innards to the "squished" ones. Great jobs, both of you.
