All I can think of is the Bug Stomper from Aliens, Valkyrie from Warhammer 40k, and the Pelican. All where inspired by the Bug Stomper from Aliens. Awesome build man!
FYI: Do you mind that I build one (with some personal customs of course) and make it into a rival counterpart?
The design is very realistic and the VSTOL capabilities are well achieved with the nacelles.
The carried ordnance is fearful!!
I wish Lego designed a better windscreen.
The cargo bay is just excellent too.
A good mix between a big Mil Mi 24 and the Star Wars Assault gunship.
I want to thank everybody who commented, gave it a like or only viewed this. When I uploaded it, I never thought it would make it this far. First, on Popular this week and now on Across MOCpages section. Thank you guys for your awesome support! ;)
Nice job ! The cockpit is very good looking ! It's worth a MOTD !

Commander Sylvan. This is a thing of beauty. You really nailed the best parts of that source art but am I wrong in seeing some genetic influence from the Kamov Ka-50 as well? I would love to see this thing in brick, and on a landing pad. Again, well done! Attack!

Fantastic! Everything about this MOC rocks, the color, the shaping, the cool weapons, very nicely done.
Quoting Gabor Pauler However it would look better as coaxial helicopter, as the 4 nacelles are little bit undersized.
Each nacelle is 4 times bigger than the one on the Harrier amd this was made for a semi-futuristic group. So it shouldn't be undersized. It will stay as it is, it was made after a really nice conceptart and for a friend's request.
This is really awesome. The cargo bay is pretty sweet and the way you made the gun stick out of the window is cool too. And thanks for posting this, I don't really check stuff on Flickr as much as I do here :D
There is nothing on this bird that I don't love! The boxy engines look like they could take a pounding and still deliver the hurt. The overall design reminds me of the drop ship from Aliens. Modular too! Outstanding!
This is incredible, the level of detail is outstanding, especially in the cockpit. The weapons, layout and functionality make this a phenomenal tank killer, with troop capacity as well. I am planning a similar aircraft (have been for ages, haven't got round to it) but without the troop bay. also, mine uses rotors buried in wings instead of nozzles, but the concept is the same.
A super render of this impressive machine. I was a bit worried about how it would fly with all that weaponary on its wings, until you featured the VTOL nozzles. I like the idea of the modular cargo area and the cockpit details are great.
