Bête Noire is the kind of starship I always wanted when I was 10 : a big black nasty one with a lot of hidden weapons, big docking bay , a sort of playset with a fightening villain...So I did it!
Here is the monster, it's about 4kgs and 96 studs long.

Very odd, but cool design!  I love the H.R. Geiger-ish look and feel to this. :wub:

Very interesting design, haven't seen anything like it before as far as I can remember. The interior is pretty sweet, and you made well use of that big head piece.

Hi, nours is a nickname that came from "nounours" , teddybear in french.
When I choose a name for a forum a few years ago nours was already used by someone so I added a _ and I found this rather graphic...

You know that Bete means stupid in French, right?  :grin: A loose translation of that name is Stupid Black.  :laugh:

Great work! I like the design of the ship itself, as it's very unique and menacing.

really? it's a common piece of french "borrowed" by english - and it's generally translated as beast, so it would be Black Beast - which fits this MOC to a T .....

This is quite good. Interesting design. Was it just the camera, or did the bricks really have that glossy look to them.

I couldn't remember what this creation reminded me of when I first saw it, but not I remember: Alien (The Alien, or ''Xenomorph''). The curved headpiece reminds me of it's head, and the large ''ribs'' at the side of it's tail.

Is this too farfetched, or am I not the only one thinking of it this way?

Yes, absolutely right, thanks...but what do you mean by "...which fits this MOC to a T...", english ain't my mother tongue!
