RT-105 Mockingbird
Hey all and thanks for looking. I had a really great backstory, but MOCPages decided it hated me and killed my first attempt after several errors. I take no credit for inventing this style of ship; this is my only thinship and the credit goes to all the other members of the "Longships and thinships" group for inspiring me. Sorry it's LDD; kids before Legos, you know?
About this creation

"Robots? Seriously, are you joking?" - Fleet Commander Hark Santage, after being told that the first operational squadron of Mockingbird drones was to be sent into the Incharo system ahead of the 23rd Expeditionary Fleet. The drones discovered a surprise blockade of Incharo IX, thereby saving the 23rd from ambush and heavy losses. The Mockingbirds lost only one unit.

The Mockingbird is an unmanned space vehicle (USV). It is a reconnaissance craft which relies on speed, as well as active and passive stealth systems, to accomplish its mission. It is made from a proprietary material known simply as "sensor absorbent material," or SAM.

Its bulbous aft portion houses it's powerful engines and cold-fusion reactor which powers both the engines and advanced electronic systems.

The large forward portion houses the powerful Mockingbird sensor suite, from which the craft derives it's name and much of it's success as a recon platform. As well as gathering needed signal intelligence, the Mockingbird system uses a set of complex algorithms to transform enemy information into a projected signal that mimics the signal cross section of several types of enemy craft.

As well as the Mockingbird system, the forward portion of the ship contains the projector array for a powerful cloaking device that distorts the ships visual and sensor presentation under all but the most intense scrutiny. Both the Mockingbird system and the cloaking device are powered by the cold-fusion core. This means that while one or both are running, the ships stealth capabilities are enhanced at the cost of performance.

The operators receive telemetry from the craft's onboard sensors as well as a system of cameras scattered across the hull.

The ship is a marvel of technology and design.

Quoting Yuri Fassio I'd really šOVE to see this in solid LEGO, but even like this, the design is great. I like the "hammerhead" approach.
Regarding the solid Lego comment: me too!

It looks like a cool design. I'd like to see more greebling, but that may just be my greebling fetish. the smooth aesthetic looks nice.
