Imbolc Fire - RMC Ae F-1044i
In order to assist the lighter "Beltane Fire" and "Samhain Fire" RMC Aeronautics, on behalf of the "G.A.I.A", developed the heavier "Imbolc Fire". The internal notation was RMC Ae F-1044i. The "Imbolc" wasn´t very popular among the people, because they were not as elegant and fast as the other fighters. The crowd likes dogfighting. Among the pilots, they became very popular due to their superior armour, standard firepower and the capability to carry heavy payloads that could deliver doom to enemy ground positions. These could be heavy weapons or auxiliary tanks under the wings or additional guns/missile launchers at the nose. Only a few "Imbolcs" were lost during the war. Most of them could still limp home, even if they were seriously damaged. A tribute to the durable armour.

Quoting El Barto ! Cool ship! But, Dude, did you photograph this thing at the bar in Ten Forward or what? What's the deal? That table top is wicked!
Hehe. Thanks, Buddy! I just wish it would be ten forward, but it is just an IKEA Vika Lauri table top and some Dioder LED lighting strips doing the work in my home office!

Quoting Parrington Levens Nothing like GAIA's fast and sleek fighters. I have another one on the way mate, do you want try and build a co-themed MOC. Ie. my next fighter and yours, even if totally different in shape might use the same exact colors or something? What do you reckon? P.S. Congrats on 20 yellows.
Oh, yea! 20 likes, that´s great, but only nearly 2/3 of the 27 from your best. As for the co-themed moc, we should give it a try. I´ve got some new bricklink orders for my "Wolfhound" project on their way, with usually more parts than I really need. Perhaps, I´ll have all in all enough to post a result soon. So, just set the parameters and here we go!

Quoting robert ball This is such a sweet design, it makes all the Rim Worlder pilots salivate! One in particular, a Lt. Jyrga, wants to fly one as soon as they arrive. At present she is a Heavy Assault Fighter pilot, and she suspects your ship is a lot more maneuverable. I told her it very likely is. But I didn't make any promises to her about getting her a loaner. One doesn't make promises to a Rim Worlder unless one is SURE one can fulfill them. I'll leave it up to her powers of persuasion when they get here.
Well, RMC Aeronautics is very proud to hear that. We´ll gladly provide her with a specimen and, if she is going to like it (and she definitely will!), we´ll provide her with all the extra equipment she likes to satisfy her claims! She´ll have no limits in customising this very special piece of engineering. See this as welcome present from RMC Ae to the Rim Worlders.

Quoting Yuri Fassio Nice "hotrod" fighter. Too bad for the spaceport guy about tho get crushed... :)
Quoting Crimso Giger Love the mix of a delta shape and the big spoiler, and the front/windscreen section is sweet !
First, thank you! I hope Spacport guy didn´t get crushed, hopefully he ran away in time. The spoiler is my favourite part, it wouldn´t have looked right without it.

nice one! as for the gaps, try to develop a vent-looking thing, that way you still have the gap, but it looks "fuller" if you know what I mean. 5/5

Quoting affliction . Wonderful ship with a great shape, just a bit of retro styling that I love. My only criticism is the gaps between the curved slopes on the nose at the corners. They break up the curve a little too much for my tastes and they are easy to eliminate. But that is a very small thing.
First thanks to you all! I understand what you mean with the gaps, but they are supposed to bethere.

Really cool MOC, great colors, great shape, love trhe tear drop shaped cocpit, and the tail end spoiler just rocks. And just a great backstory, I love the follow up on the Samhain, beltane fighters, and the comment about the crowds. Even the name is in the same vein! It's so nice too see someone getting the vibe of the GAIA story and going with it. Thanks for posting this MOC dude, it is a pleasure to observe.
