Cavalry Scout
Nothing new, I just wanted to get it on my page. Built for a Northwest Brick Convention display in 2007. Attack!
About this creation
The prototype as seen before the Iron Reich update. This version still features the plate armor around the cockpit and the older style hinges supporting the engine cowlings.

A fairly compact profile in the head on.


The tasks of Scouting, Screening, and QRF dictate the design. Speed, flexibility, accurate fires, quick turn around time between sorites. At the Walheim they are employed in a base security role. Another image of this aircraft can be seen at
Ramsboxart





The Iron Reich attempted to improve on the platforms range by adding these "Lift enhancing fuel cells". This proto-type never went into production. It is currently owned and operated by TOR private aircraft collector Steve Galviston.

What a cool ship, and I love the landing pad too! The ongoing refueling process and built in doors/features under the surface are great details.

Lee, thanks for the feedback. I am afraid that this project is pretty old, and I don't have any additional pics with me. This bird is long gone. Attack!

Beautiful ship design, it left me mismerized. Anyway, welcome to the group and one more thing (state your answer in the group), where on earth did you get those blue lego plates?

Nice to see you posting new mocs. This is well done. Awesome work on the landing area or building.(?) Thats my faorite part. The engines remind my of those flying machines in the Terminator movies. Very well done on this vehicle. I think you should take a picture of the pilot next to the vehicle. That would look real nice. Great work. ~ Ghostman :)

All, thanks for the feedback. I wanted the nose to resembel an AH-64. Mark, those printed slopes were Keiths contribution. Originaly, that was all flat tile armor. I think the compound slopes rounded it out well. Pillage the village? Nope, the pilot himself is a viking. Ryan, I can see your sea birds flying...

The Cavalry Scout remains a very compact efficient build. I particularly like the click hinge frame that supports the engine nacelles. The tiling there gives an armored appearance making the craft more robust looking. Galveston "O" Galveston, I can hear your sea waves crashing while I watch the cannons flashing.

Noice! For some reason, I like the nose best.

Set to be on stores next winter? I like the way you use some bricks and the final look they do. Very creative
  May 22, 2009
Nice one, Michael. I like the way you've used the decorated bricks for additional surface detail on the exterior paneling. Not an unusual approach, of course, but done well here. So, will the vikings be asking for their shield back, or did you blast 'em and then pillage their village?

I really like this thing, and it inspired one of my own VTOL creations. The detail and weapons are excellent. If you're looking to add wings to the model and you were dissatisfied with your earlier attempt, try putting them outboard of the engines.

Very nice. I actually doodled something almost exactly like that in Social class today. Weird.

Well Mr. Rutherford, you have a lot of talent when it comes to little fighters. Prehaps if you post them, we might just get an idea on how you come up with these little wonders.

Very cool! I love the cockpit design with those slopes on the side. I would rather see some cheese on the nose in the place of round tiles, but it looks cool all the same.

Sweet, very well built. Nice decals too (or use of decorated bricks). Peace - Packie

Nice! The propulsion engines are really cool. I like how they turn up and down. The whole thing is great too. I love the details and pretty much everything! Some how, this reminds me of a Hornet from halo 3.
