Prepare for the invasion!
After putting paid to Ogel, Alpha team armed up to fight their next big enemy: The Lumbering Behemoth of a theme that is Star Wars!
Cannibalising the sub and several smaller craft, Cam got to work on her magnum opus, The Alpha Fighter. With 360 degrees of rotation from the cockpit and a domed canopy allowing an all vectors view, a quantum singular string drive and dual plasma canons are handy in a battle with rebels or the Empire. Radia hopes to pilot her to victory against the stagnant SF giant.
With 205 pieces (not including stand) The Alpha Fighter is a lightweight in nature, but not in battle.
Alpha Team was my favourite theme from the past ten years so it had to be the theme for my fighter. I only just made the part count (my building method is haphazard and hard to quantify and worse to rebuild or create instructions for!) and I worked very hard to keep non-Lego parts out. I did have a specific Star Wars ship in mind but my tame Stormtrooper is on holiday, so I can't name said ship until he returns next week. I also missed some photos I needed (a side and a top view) but as these are WIP until the end I'm sure I'll get them in on time. I am having a manic week so I needed a de-stress with my Lego and the contest sprang to mind so I made this ship in less time than I expected. Hope you like it!
I have discovered that this is based on a B-Wing Fighter
Edited to put my final design into the first post. Old MOC is now at the bottom.
