Rogue Bantha is coming in for a landing with his new midiscale model of a Low Altitude Assault Transport (or gunship). What is there to say about this build? It's absolutely fantastic, nailing every single detail of these iconic Star Wars transports. The shaping? Ace. Texturing? Perfect. Having a fleet of this particular creation would be incredible to see. I guess we will have to wait to see the builder's next midiscale model!
When you hear the word "locust" what do you think of? A mostly harmless grasshopper-like small insect? A plague of mostly harmless grasshopper-like small insects capable of destroying entire crops and devastating everything in their path? How about a neo classic space twin engine gunship? Yeah, that's what I was thinking too, thanks to builder ZCerberus.
This thing looks like something out of a James Cameron movie. This is the DBG Gunship from builder Horcik Designs, and it's a beast. It's a little oddly scaled for figures though, according to the builder a minifig is too small, Technic fig is too big and Jack Stone is too ugly (on this point I have to agree).
This little bundle of awesome is from famed Exo Suit designer and author Pete Reid (Legoloverman) and shows what can be accomplished in a very small package with clever part use. There's so much going on here it's hard to imagine it fits in the palm of your hand. I especially like the use of the welder's mask as a cockpit, inspired.
