BSE Medium-class Defense Hovercraft LT-800
First creation for the Black Sun Empire, a medium-class defense and support hovercraft.
About this creation
Hi,

First off, before anything else, I'll say that this model was originally made by my little brother (http://mocpages.com/home.php/14570) whose lego models are finally starting to look pretty good; and I saw straight away the idea behind it and decided, with him, to improve it together. His original version was very resemblant, just with less detail, and was much lower (giving less space for cockpit, interior and engines); so don't give all the credit for this to me, as I only rebuilt it as a better version; the main idea was Alien Boy's.

So, to the model. As you might have understood, I didn't actually expect to build this, but it was fun to make, and coincidentally coincides with the new group I made, Black Sun Empire (http://mocpages.com/group.php/5853) at's style matches perfectly the theme I wanted to capture.

So, this model is one of the BSE's Medium-class Defense Hovercraft capable of travelling on land and on water. It's big and bulky, but proplelled by two powerful engines, as well as two smaller engines to keep it up vertically (the black round bits in the middle of each side) and so is capable of fair speeds. The coekpit seats one, but one or two soldiers can travel in the back, where there are some small storage cupboards for equipment and weapons.
The front is angled and streamlined to reduce wind resistance, and the two side slopes hide two powerful heavy cannons; the craft might only have two cannons, bt they are powerful ones; so though the vehicle is mainly sed for defense, it can also act as a support unit if extra firepower is needed in combat.

If you like this model you might want to check out the group it's 'celebrating' the opening of; my Black Sun Empire is a specialist group dedicated to collectively creating a big collection of land and air vehicles, spacecraft and buildings in this 'dark sci-fi' style inspired by the Black Sun criminial organisation of star wars, the music by the dutch group Black Sun Empire, and dark sci-fi in general.








































P.S. If you are looking to buy lego for your creations, I would like to recommend the following Bricklink lego shop ; "About Town, Castle & Train" ( http://www.bricklink.com/store.asp?p=stacey_love )
I personally know the shopholders, and they are very nice, devoted people. They are currently sponsoring 100% of my 1/3 Lamborghini project, providing all of the parts; and have made various other donations to other models I have made.
The store has a wide selection of parts (over 600,000!), at good prices, and offer an exceptional, fast service (no tax or dodgy exchange rates, next day postage, etc). you won't be disappointed !
