jansued, this is awesome. I love this. You captured the WW2 fighter feal really well and transposed that nicely to Star Wars. I love the greebling and the details that you've put into this. The decail adds that finishing touch. My favourite MOC I've seen ever. Brilliant.  :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

This is a fantastic creation.  I really like the heavy clunky look that you created. The nose looks pretty good.  Looks like it can take a fair bit of pounding.  Well done and thanks for sharing.

Looks like a great machine and could very well be found in the Star Wars Universe.  Although you said P 41d, I would have thought that fighter seems a bit slender to be your inspiration.  I'm getting P 47 Thunderbolt from your design.

I love it- I like the sort of 'trashed' look to it. I also like the use of the dropship sticker (I wish I had that set)

Words cannot describe this creation, hands down for this epic ship! It looks fierce and heavy. Armed and dangerous! The decal is awesome as well for the landing platform, the finishing touches. Congratulations with this MOC and good luck in the contest! :thumbup:

Wow, that's a great-looking ship you got there jansued! Posted Image  I have to disagree that it isn't ugly at all, the amazing amount of details are just awesome. Hope you do well in the contest Sir.

I usually don't really comment on creations in the starwars forum but I must say this creation looks great! It kinda give off a "Weequay pirates" feel if they made a space vessel.

I only hope that with my limited building skill that I can build as fine a creation as this.  Wow what an intimidating ship this would be to see.  I like the cockpit/escape pod and for some reason the teeth on the nose.  The best of luck in the contest,  I think you have a pretty good shot!

Ugly!

Awesome ugly!  :wink:

The front angle says it all! It looks like it might fly like a pig but strike like a swarm of horribly be-weaponed Lego enthusiasts!!  :classic:  
I see a bit more of the F 4U Corsair in the design even with the air intake - but what gets me good is the teeth! Now they've got to do something for the war effort...

Love it!

If this was an official lego ship and was in the catalog I would 100000% buy it, depending on the price
