The Bayonet is the third of my 'Variations on a Theme' MOCs. The theme itself is described in exquisite detail on the Prestige page (the first 'Variations on a Theme' MOC). I thought it would be some sort of awful sacrilege if I didn't make a Blacktron II themed MOC since this whole theme is based off Blacktron II cockpit design. The Blacktron II color scheme fits in perfectly with my theme guideline of only having two colors so I had to do it.
The Bayonet is all about firepower. Those two long masts.. I mean guns.. really pack a wallop.
I tried a really elaborate engine design at first but it was too much and this looks better.
The bottom. Yet another VTOL--they aren't part of the theme I'm just using the same design on every one.
The holes actually serve a purpose on this one! Jetpack equipped Blacktron II units can fit in them for unsafe and uncomfortable travel!
"Bye!" Oh, I'm sort of planning a fourth but might not build it. I'm down to two more domes but one is trans green and the other is trans blue; I'll have to see what I can do.
Thanks for the comments!
I like all your ships, they have a very clean and smooth design. It was tough choosing just one to comment on:) I think you made the right decision about the engine on this one!
Deadly. Puts the BLACK in blacktron II. I should make a b-tron II ship someday.
I like it

Now THIS is an awesome tribute. It must have been a pain to get those masts aligned just right, but they really enhance the lethal look of the ship. The engine is great too, very Blacktron looking without being overdone. Keep up the great designs!
hey i was about to make something very similar to that! you must hae read my mind or something! anyways great job, i love black and white paint schemes and they really do look great. thanks for all the reviews, i'll try and check out your creations more often!
It looks a bit awkward to me in the main picture, but then i saw the rest. Great work! I tried that cockpit (with my own variations) On one of my MOCs that's kind of a WIP. anyways, love the "variation of a theme" MOCs!
