This is my A116a70R- Crocodile. It's an Attack space craft (like the A-10 of the Star Wars/space universe).
About this creation
So, my Crocodile... My first ship (not SHIP) on MOCpages (TOTALLY based off Clay Atchley's HAV-1, by the way), and one of the first to be color coordinated. Yah, before MOCpages, I was like everybody (and I mean everybody, accept for Mr. Young down there) and used what piece I had, and did not care about color. But anyways...
So, it has a bomb bay. I was happy. It's the first one I ever made, and held 5 whole things! I mean, how could it be better than that!?!? And then you look at my Dragon...
This is the front view of the A116a70R- Crocodile. An interesting shot.
I did not realize until after looking at all of my pictures, one of the wings is crooked. Just imagine that they are both straight.
The engine. Finally, a good use for the front of Aniken's fighter. Also, the 2 thermal flairs are on the top fin to protect against heat-seeking missiles. They shoot out and attract the missile, in stead of the ship.
This is the underside. You can clearly see the closed bomb bay and the under-wing engines.
A nice image of the top of the wing. You can see the air intakes for the bottom.
The underside of the wing. It has a small jet engine. When the wing is at an angle, like it is on the ship, it provides forward thrust and stabilizes the ship.
I think this angle, without the wing, it sort of looks like a pregnant crocodile. Use your imagination.
A closeup of the bomb bay. This is my first time attempting a bomb bay, and I think that I did a good job.
The inside. Five smart bombs: two on the doors, three on the bottom.
These are the bombs when not in the bomb bay. Yes, they all fit in there.
A nice shot of the cockpit. You can also see the side cannons.
This shot shows most of the details in the cockpit.
Well, there it is. Hope you enjoyed. I look at it now, and see things I could have done different, especially now that I have become a better MOCer. (eg: make the fuselage SNOTy, get rid of the Star Wars shooters, bigger bomb bay, things like that) But, I hope you enjoyed, and please leave a comment.
Not EVERYBODY built ugly patchwork rainbow ships as a kid -- I always color-coordinated. As has been said, reminiscent of Clay Atchley's HAV ships, but with your own stamp. Green is a great color on this, gives it a nice military feel.
Thanks for the kind reviews Makuta Bane. Much appreciated. I like this creation, nice use of hinges to get a sloping effect. Looks like there are quite a few moving parts on this MOC as well, nice work.
The color scheme and just plain design rocks! i would igve u a 10/10 if u could, cause this is just simply amazing... the design is awesome, and i like all the creativity behind it (its not a blocky triangular ship like my thingy, lol)
