The Excalibur class escort vessel is equivalent to a small star faring craft similar in overall dimensions to that of a Klingon Bird of Prey. Although by no means the largest warship currently in production, It carries an impressive array of two laser cannons in the nose, a rail cannon mounted in central fuselage and two torpedo launchers, one under each wing.
BUILDER'S NOTES: For those who already noticed, this is the same ship I used as the centerpiece for my round one entry in the 2010 MocOlympics. I simply liked how the pictures came out too much not to post them even though this isn't a new creation. Hopefully you will enjoy them as well!
Thanks guys. Your words are truly inspirational. I would have told you all this sooner but I didn't even know you all came back and commented again on this one! I never even saw them in the new "comments left for me section" and I only just fount them today by accident! I'm definitely slipping in my old age.
hehe, well said Crimso. Mate, I wouldn't know where to start on Bionical parts, so you got me beat there. These really do look cool you know, these shapes are very hard to pull off with more standard bricks which is why I think it's great guys like yourself and Yuri and various others have no fear to do micro-scale ships in bionic. It's just not something I'll ever do, but that's what makes a community a community. If we could all do everything ourselves, there'd be no need for others! lol...
Well, maybe me or Parrington we built larger, not better, so don't seel your talent short ! Size isn't all. BTW I forgot to mention that your ships reminds me the work of Leiji Matsumoto (creator of famous ships like the Arcadia, which is my favorite ship ever) !

this is an interesting vessel!nice work!
Thanks as well. If you see an idea you like, then try to build your own version of it. Just be sure you give credit to whomever inspired you. That way you still have a great MOC and earn the respect of your fellow builders at the same time.
I see what you mean. I guess these parts simply compliment each other. I especially like how you made them the tail section of your flier. See what happens when guys like Yuri and Berial get into your head!

It really is a beaut. There's just something about the shape of it that really catches the eye.
When I look at this one, it reminds me of a flying dagger. It came out just right with the proportions and curves. To be honest, this is what was hatched from the leftovers when I built the Wraith as shown in the last two pics. I have to admit I think I like this even more of the two!
