General Grievous Neimoidian Shuttle, having some distrust of automated shuttle systems, Grievous insisted a crewed cockpit be kept in the shuttle.
Battle droids operated his vessel for occasional transit when his personal starfighter was not available.

I would have liked it to be a bit bigger and wider, but i unfortunaly i dont have unlimited number of tan bricks....

At first I thought this was a microscaled ship, then I saw Grievous in the back :laugh:
Is it a combo?
Nice and sleek design.
I especially like the design of the tail-fin(?) - shark wing on top of the shuttle...
Great work. :sweet:

It´s really supposed to be minifigscale but it´s a tad small...
I made a V2 and tried to make it look a little wider.

Despite your lack of bricks it's a great looking MOC, nice one! I guess it will be an ongoing project for you as you get more tan to work on it and improve it? It will be great to see how you develop it further!

Hey, that's pretty good! If it was a set (especially one with a new Grievous), I would totally consider getting it! :sweet: Sure, it's small, but it's a great moc! :thumbup:
Lol. It's actually that semi-minifig scale that the first MTT was made in. :laugh:
Good job!

Tan bricks ON! :thumbup:

Awesome MOC mrb18  :thumbup: . I think is actually really cool even if it is a bit small, I especially like the "Tail"  :tongue:  design. I think the scale of this is actually more like the scale of the TIE Advanced that comes with the new 10188 Death Star   :laugh: . Good job  :wink:  :thumbup: .

Excellent!  :sweet: I hope you never destroy this one, because it is very cool. The whole thing is very accurate, and the trans-blue plates were a nice touch. I look forward to seeing future versions of this wonderful MOC. :sweet:

You may not have a lot of tan bricks, but you have a skill with bricks, and that makes this MOC good. I like the cockpit for the droid, and Grevious' chair.  :thumbup:

Agreed.

Nice work

A little small, but it is really good for its size though.

I like it.  It's a cool idea, it's smaller than the orginal, but still got the right design and look.  It's like on the outside it looks mini-scale, but it still fits figs.  It's a wierd concept, but i don't dislike it!  Nice build!

It's in ATOC and ROTS.
Grevious used it in ROTS and Nute Gunray used it in ATOC.

Looks really good!

A few suggestions for the next update :grin:

Make it even wider, but try to flatten the side parts a little. Those Neimoidian designs as well as the Nabooian designs are sleek and curved as much as possible.

The upper brown part shouldn´t be sloped, but straight, showing a flat surface.
At the point where the flat part meets with the sloped part should be some greeble. Maybe an antenna or lightsaber blade with some small Technic pieces wrapped around it. At the reference picture some tubes, bars or whatever that is can be seen. And when you´re already at it, apply the same to the outer tip of the hull, just like in the pic.

Chapter 2 is online!
