Hey Eurobricks space! Posting my second MOC to this site. I really like to focus on playability and would love to hear your feedback on my designs :) This one is based on the Cutlass Black from the upcoming Star Citizen game. Though I do not play the game's current alpha, I love some of the art concepts. In the Star Citizen lore, the Cutlass Black is the model of Cutlass ship ideal for pirating - a balance of guns, maneuverability, and storage. A conveniently named model to be employed by Lego's leading space antagonists! Rugged jack-of-all trades. Armed with two smaller front guns and two pivotable cannons for the gunner on top with fully pivoting powerful engines. I really wanted to make the top turret spinnable, but adding that function would have taken the main gunner area further out of scale. I settled with pivoting up or down and giving the gunner access to the station from the main hold. The ammo boxes for the main guns seemed like a good place for a hit of yellow. I went through a few iterations on the front cockpit, this combo felt appropriate for a narrow but tall front area. I had a lot of the black 8x4 wing pieces from my childhood and felt that this would be a good opportunity to use them for the "belly" shaping of the ship. Really wanted to incorporate functional landing gear and compact axles felt appropriate. I wanted to get some playability in the engines and went with a gearbox rotating them in opposite directions, accessible from the rear middle of the ship. I felt this captures the feel of a very maneuverable craft which excels at dogfighting despite having a decently sized cargo hold. Plenty of space inside, even to take a nap. The side panels include rotating thrusters and removable for easy access. Blacktron mercenary team left to right: Earl the Engineer armed with laser cutter for breaching spacecraft during pirating. Sniper Stacey takes care of those pesky defense drones and spacewalking troops deployed by a target ship. Wally the Warlord bosses everyone around, worries about finances, and holds a ceremonial weapon. Assault Andy armed with a shield, laser shotgun, and intimidating helmet. First one clearing rooms during a breaching operation. Heavy Weapons Helga armed with rocket launcher and heavy machine laser for when things get dicey inside a target ship.
