Built by the greatest minds from Atta-tech, Dagger's Edge is the deadly, Imperial-made counterpart to Emuir's Breath.
It's pilot is Lord Jelerek Bovin, a Premier Knight of the Emperor.

I really like this, especially the way you managed to get a convincing airfoil into the main wings. I also like the dual horizontal stabs. The recessed low profile canopy adds to the aerodynamic look of the fuselage, giving it the appearance of something designed for  speed.

Awesome! Very sleek and genius idea to use BIONICLE playset weapons for the landing gear.

Very nice. Lovely smooth shaping all around.

But I really love the the landing gear.
Is it actually retractable? :oh:

Thank you, yes it is retractable, but I give all credit to the design of the landing gear to Jon Hall on flickr. I pretty much copied the landing gear on one of his Sky-fi planes for this MOC. He was the single greatest inspiration for my Sky-fi MOCs.

Love it!

If I may make one suggestion - see if you can add some blur to the propeller in the "old" photo to make it look like it's flying.
