Developed in Lukanian labs to be a swift and powerful bomber, the Scimitar class bomber definitely delivers with insane speed due to it's powerful engines, and amazing aerodynamics.
About this creation
This bomber is designed for both looking awesome, and functinality. It contains a fully operational bombing bay, missile racks, a dual cockpit, and landing gear, which can be seen in this shot.
Without the landing gear, the ship looks sleek, and swift.
The slick looking side of the bomber.
The turbo-charged engines of the bomber. When the center engine is turned, the bomb bay opens up, and the bombs fall out.
The bottom of the bomber. If you look at the rear, you can see some of the gears used to open the bomb bay doors.
Some of the mechanical features of the bomber.
The bomb bay in all it's glory. It has space for 9 bombs, but this model is stocked with four to increase firing speed (not because I don't have the bricks for 9. That can't be it!)
To launch the missiles, you simply press in the back of the ship to launch out the missiles, with the common force inherited by a flick-fire missile.
The dual-cockpit. It has space for a pilot in the front, and a gunner in the rear. By having two airmen (or air-ladies. The Lukanian Armed Forces believe in gender equality), the bomber can fly with more skill, and have it's weapons be far more accurate.
All in all, the bomber carries a pilot (in blue), a gunner (in white), 12 missiles, and (as of now) 4 bombs of varying degrees, with anything from nuclear to anti-matter bombs. As always, comments and criticisms are always appreciated =)
I love the playability of this, but the colouring doesn't nicely with me. The colours are fine, but l think theres either too much blue, or its too "spotty," maybe both. Other than that, its a fine ship my friend. l'm always a fan of space fighters and will be watching for more from you.

Super cool! Where did you get the round navy blue panels w/ snaps on the back of the ship? I mean the ones that you can lift to show greebling. How did you do make the system for the bomb bay doors?
The navy blue snaps came from the Base for the Aquaraiders theme from 2007. As for the bomb bay doors, it's some simple cogs set up so that when you turn one beam, the cogs transfer the energy to the other beam, which opens the bomb bay doors. (It's Technic-al. Heh, get it?)
