Classic Space Star Fighter This is my Classic Space Star Fighter. It holds two pilots, which sit in the cockpit with one on controls, with the other one as a backup. Given the nostalgia of Classic Space (Space, Futuron, Blacktron, etc.), which has only been fueled by Benny from the Lego Movie and the Exosuit, I thought I'd try to make a spaceship. It's got eight engines, a cargo hold, and secondary flaps for atmospheric flight. It's capable of holding gear (or extra Turtles!) in it's four auxiliary cargo holds, located behind the observation panels on 4 of the eight sides of the craft. Closeups: Maximum Velocity: 45,000 MPH Classification: Light Freighter/Transportation Classic Space Jet Fighter Unlike my other model, the Classic Space Starfighter, this one is designed specifically for HALO (High Atmosphere, Low Orbit) applications. For maneuverability, it foregoes the standard engines and directional thrusters for a series of Ion Pulse drives. These are powered directly by electricity, eliminating the need for pesky fuel! Given it's application as a espionage or small freight vehicle, it also gets rid of the standard cockpit and replaces it with a forcefield. In the event that there is equipment failure, there's a mechanically operated life support system connected to the Pilot from the seat. Also, it has lift generating wings, a parachute, and a Ramjet engine in the event of having total power loss or for atmospheric travel.

I'm going to work on some more, but it'll take a bit of time since I dual post them to Lego Ideas and Eurobricks.

Taking a break from mechs, I present the Unlikely Flying Vessel! This beauty has long-spanning origins. I originally built the pilot (Alfred Thruster) when I was going through a "figbarf" stage. Two years after having this guy staring at me from my shelf I decided it was high-time that he needed a ship to surround his character. There is something just magical for me in the dark-red/ yellow combo (I also like dark-blue/yellow which might be my next ship.) I've been looking for a use for many of the big hulking dark-red pieces found in 8097 Slave I, and this is what I ended up with! Here's what I consider to be some ingenious cockpit techniques. I was so proud when I saw that all the shapes fit together! And here is the gallant pilot himself, Alfred Thruster! For more pictures check out my Brickshelf Gallery. Please, I would love comments or criticism.
