Here is my first playable ship that I'm happy with, the HLC Mk.I. Inspired by Rook's work, and the Action IV cargo transport. I ran into so many problems with this MOC, the cockpit was re-worked about 7 times, due to gaps. I never new how hard it was to add playability to a MOC until now. That being said, enjoy! :classic:

Note: The base plate was an extra just to show the playability, I will take on a real dio for this in the future.

Flick set.

Wow that looks like  a great MOC. I really like the way the cockpit is designed and i also love the stairs into the cockpit.
i wish TLC's gunship had something like that. Great job!  :thumbup:

Great MOC.  Loving all the angles on this - especially the cockpit/cockpit interior.  Is there a reference pic for what inspired you to build this?

Nicely done 501st Commando, your ship does resemble the Action IV Transport and has the 'Rook'-feel to it. I love the gunship-style interior and of course, the overall details. Good job! Posted Image

It kindo or reminds me of the stealth ship from Cat and Mouse of the clone wars TV series, I like the amount of detail and effort put into it, but I'm not a fan of the overall look, It's to lender to me, but other then that, it's pretty darn good.

Why am I only seeing this now? It has really great angles and the small details are really good. The stairs are a nice touch and that cockpit blows it away.

Great Ship  :thumbup:

Fantastic work! :D

It could also work as a Delta DX-9 Stormtrooper Transport as well (or a CW Precursor) :

Very nicely done either way!
I find your lack of pants disturbing...

That's playable!  If I built something like that it would fall apart!  Great work though! :thumbup:

I saw this ship when you posted it, but didn´t have time to answer to it.
It is a very good MOC and very much in my liking.
I like the sleek and snotty design, the way you built the cockpit to be bent like that is very nice.

(See you made a nice hangar for it as well  :wink:  )
