The Venom is the sinister spaceship of a Sith bounty hunter.
About this creation
The Sith Venom was built mainly as a diversion from the typical gray, utilitarian designs that dominate my gallery. This ship features a sleek overall shape combined with sharp angles to produce a mean profile. I kept the greebling to a minimum and focused more on shape than detail, although I'd say this ship does offer good but subtle details.
It is not a stealthy ship like the Infiltrator or even Slave I. Although the ship supports one pilot, and perhaps one or two live captives, it is oversized for intimidation and, with it's massive engines, speed! Overall, I like how this ship turned out. The pictures could be a little better but my camera seems to have a tough time with red.
The overall shape of the Venom draws on several inspirations, some deliberate and some apparently sub-conscious. For instance, the engines are bit of anime splashed with Sebulba's pod racer (particularly the split-X). The front was semi-inspired by "Event Horizon."
This head-on view shows the unique angle of the canted engines, which at first glance in the previous view seem to be at 45 degrees to the body. It's actually closer to 50 degress or so (I'm really not sure). I tried the 45 degree angle using click hinges but it looked too neat. So I used sloped bricks with studs on one side (typically used for anchoring plate roofs) to get a sharper angle.
I know your creation since a long time. I love this one, but in fact, everything here deserve a 5/5 , or maybe a 6/5 if possible. You're in the top five of the great great great builders of space things ! Thank you for the dreams.
Wow. Very cool.
I agree with Rags naRock, it does look like something the Imperial Guards might use, being red and everything. It has a certain...identity to it...as many of the bounty hunter's ships do.
As all of your stuff deserves, 5/5! The ship is awosome but what's even cooler is the pilot. I mean...sith are awesome...and bountu hunters are awesome...so a sith bounty hunter is beyond cool. Keep the creations comin'!!!
