Sparrowhawk Starfighter

Post by Axel on Fri Jan 08, 2010 2:59 am

An incredibly fast and maneuverable starfighter, the Sparrowhawk is equipped with twin rotary guns and three small boosters.

This build was an experiment into building with SNOT, and finding a good way to use the cockpit piece. The grilled tiles might be replaced with colour tiles later on.






Yes, it fits a figure, but...



...the figure doesn't actually sit on a stud. Nevertheless, it's a snug fit and the figure won't move much even if you swoosh the starfighter around.



Notice the detailed underside. This was achieved due to the SNOT techniques I used.




Thanks for looking!

The outside of the ship is nice, and what a great way to fit a fig! Smile

This also looks a lot like my Cargo Ship, not necessarily the same look, but a lot of the same techniques. :scratch:

Not really. Looking at your cargo ship, there's a alot of exposed studs, and the SNOT work is limited to the sides. The majority of your build is stacked on top of each other.

The Sparrowhawk is almost all SNOT work, with very little studs showing. And it's a very modular build. I'll post a picture to show what I mean.

I thought this was Tac's at first, but then I saw it was Axel. Razz

Still nice work. I like the shape of it.
