Not bad, I quite like the design, but this just doesn't look as good as some of the other stuff you've made before. Wink Smile

When I first saw the MOC I thought TAC. I like the smoothness of the MOC along with the wings/fins, and the air intakes look nice too. But where are the thrusters?

Oh hot damn! This is so hot! Really nailed the military appearance, and I like the minifig choice too.

Yeah I don't like my new camera much still working out the kinks. I think I'm going to need more external lighting.

Is that a motorcycle piece where the clone is sitting? Wow, that's just cool.

Great entry, you nailed the look of a pod racer with military colors. Smile

I like it, but I think the stereo-typed pod-racer has enormous engines for a tiny cockpit. Yours seems to be balanced too proportionally if you know what I mean. I would probably beef up the engines. If you can't, it's understandable.

I think rabid is right, and it should be easy to beef up but either way this thing ROCKS!

It definitely looks like its military, very intimidating and sharp. Like it can slice through the air and it's opponents.

Love this thing!

Oh wow, I love this! I do have a couple of tiny suggestions though:

1) Only a small point, but I think it would look better if the grilled cheese was fluch with that curved slope.

2) Get rid of the light grey! I'm sure some people will disagree, but I think you should either replace it with dark grey or add more. I'd just get rid of it if I were you.

3) I love those fins, but it would look sooo much better if the transaction was better, I don't like that gap between them and the engines.

Ah yes but you have no military/paramilitary training. A good military leader would instantly see the flaw in your reasoning. Wink The larger the engines the easier they're going to be hit by enemy gun fire. Besides if you had seen the movie Star Wars EPI: The Phantom Menace you would know that the winning pod racer did not have over sized engines. (See image below) Wink

Yeah I agree with #3. Once again I've made something beatable. Wink Razz
