It's obviously inspired by the "Nu-class Attack Shuttle", I just downsized it after making the cockpit.

Neat little ship. I like how much detail you've packed in there. Is the landing gear retractable? How many minifigs fit inside? Just the pilot?

Really neat attack craft 'Thunder-blade' - cool cockpit ! :sweet:
It appears to only have a pair of twin blasters as armourment, right ?
So one pliot - how many in the rear can it fit with weapons, etc.
Great work 'Thunder-blade' the colours are spot on - they should be able to hunt down rebel scum in that easy ! :vader:
Keep on bricking 'Thunder-blade' keep on bricking ! :sweet:

I love the design, but the bright blue on the light grey doesn't do it for me.

Great design though.

Hello!

It's a fantastic little craft! :classic: Regarding the fact that most starships are grey, especially for the Empire, I think the choice of colours suits it well. :classic: My favourite part of the ship is its rear section with the original trigonal engine arrangement. :classic:

Cheers,

~ Christopher

To answer some questions, the main body does not hold any figs, because the whole inside of the body is just a structure.

So it can really only hold one fig, the pilot.

This reminds me of the Assault Gunship from the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games.  Perhaps it's the predecessor.  

At any rate, I really like the engines.  Very nice shape.  Are the wings articulated, or are they fixed in position?

Nice shuttle :thumbup:

It sure looks like a Nu-class vessel of early design, or a one seater version.
I dont recognize the part you used for cockpit glass, from what set is it?

I know that windscreen has been used in a couple Exo-Force sets (Mobile efense Tank and Striking Venom).  Not sure about any other sets.

Really awesome ship. I like the colour scheme, it's like a classic imperial ship with Tie fighter colours. What are the clips inside the cockpit for?
