Very nice work! I am sure your sons will have hours of fun with this - it's a different challenge when you build primarily for playability rather than showmanship so bonus points for that.
It's certainly a very well-armed ship and hopefully the Colonel will be able to regain his realm. Legaña supports the rightful ruler of PBR!
Thank you. They have had tons of fun with it already. It looks like I need to beef up some sections of the Ship though, at least building it "simple" allows for quick fixes when a rocket hits the bow.
There could be a little skirmish this weekend to regain some of PBR back into the Colonel's control ;)

The propulsion pieces look a little out of place but overqall it's good with a nice set of features. THe crane is a great touch.
For building it from scratch with no real idea of what you wanted, I think it turned out pretty good.
Thank you. Yes, the propulsion pieces are out of place but they come off and on with one quick tug. Just a simple 1x2 brick with a hole and a pin going into another 1x2 with a hole. Easy for them to be blown off. :)

The ship features a big amount of playability.
The detail I like most is the cockpit of the helicopter. Using that curved trans-black glass piece for bottom and top gives a nicely shaped cockpit ball.
Thank you, The Helo is still a work in progress but the curved glass was a important part of its first design. Thanks for spotting them!
