The Atropos Hover-Racer, an alternate built from 4404 Land Busters.
About this creation
This is my first real MOC after emerging from my dark age. All parts, with the exception of the minifig and the 4 chrome dots on the sides, were taken from the 4404 Land Busters set.
When she's not hunting for lost ancient treasure on third-world planets, Pippin Reed likes to hang out and race in the streets of her home planet. Her newest racer is the Atropos Hover-Racer, which she's been lovingly modding for both speed and style. After some final engine upgrades, Pippin and her racer are now the menace of the street racing underground, leaving even pretty boy arch-rival Johnny Thunder sobbing in the dust.
Thanks to the people who took the time to rate and post comments! My responses to the review comments:
Thanks for the good comments and suggestions. Yes, the cockpit was pretty much an afterthought, and I've been trying to pay more attention to improving my cockpits with my newer models. As for greebles, I'm not sure if there is much in the 4404 set to do decent greebling, but anyways, I know I need to practice my greebling skills!
Thanks! Good comment about the squarish midsection. I'll try to keep that in mind for future models, and hopefully develop some skills for making smoother, round shapes.
I love how this ship looks from the thumbnails. It's really intriguing and basically eye-candy.
However, when I looked at the larger pictures I felt the middle section was too square. Everything else seems to be flowing and organic.
I gave it a Very Good
I like it

It's got a very nice shape, but the cockpit feels unfinished, and I think a little more engine greebles would give it some more character. Still pretty cool :)
