GAIA Mk-3 Euro Systems Fighter - 'Hecate'
A surprise development, the long defunct EuroDyne group re-emerged as a viable military producer late in the 2nd Alien War. They took their almost two hundred year old Euro Syetems Fighter blue prints and came up with the Mk-3.
About this creation
As the 3rd alien war broke out, the Mk-3 was being tested by rookie ace M.Demurtas pictured furter down below. Though several critics advised there was no-way the Euro-Systems line was suitable for modern warfare, as proved by the woeful record the Mk1 and Mk 2's posted in the first alien war, GAIA brass approved the tests. The results blew their minds...

Fitted with comms and nav equipment never before seen, the Mk-3 needed no carrier. It was a self contained vacuum/atmosphere vessel that could plot jumps from any point in space to any other with almost perfect accuracy. This combined with equal flight performance indicators to the 'Falcon', made GAIA's approval and order for several hundred thousand units a logical one.

7 thrusters! 5 are engaged above. The flanking two thrusters are generally used to help in dog fight manueovers.

Coasting through space...



M.Demurtas at GAIA HQ's hangar 66.

Quoting Jeff McElwee Very "Sharp" looking , great shape to the fighter, looks like a blackbird from way back when truthfully. Great looking aricraft man, hope there's more to come, and soon!
I do have a bomber in the works which should be quite fun when finished, cheers mate...

Quoting Mike Johnson Well, like you told me earlier, you've hit a home run with this one (or does a baseball cliche even make sense at this point)! First off I will build another fighter for you and GAIA at some point. Second, I have decided to torment myself again by joining the 2011 MocAthalon. Currently my group "The Leftovers" (cute name huh?) consists of myself and Sean Flynn. We need 5 members and can have one more AFOL as per the rules. So I was wondering if you consider being part of our motley bunch. If you don't have the time or care for this type of contest I fully understand. Officially the contest is in sign-up phase and hasn't started yet. Let me know what you think.

Quoting Stuart Delahay Certainly one of your best fighters mate. The shapes really work throughout - love the integration of those looooong black slopes into the engine intakes. Of course it's presented really well too - I've become used to seeing starfield backdrops but yours are always tight and interesting with engine flares and the heat effect in the overhead shot too. Good job.
Thanks mate. Yeh, I figure why let down a cool build with poor pres. Man, those long pieces were just made for air intakes if you ask me. I wonder why I haven't seen them much used as such? Cheers for the words of wisdom mate...

Quoting ccy 8086 Nice plane and Nice photo! BTW, can the cockpit open?
Absolutely mate! If you enlarge the overhead pic, you'll see the hinging I have used. The landing gears retract also, and there is a bomb door underneath, and an engine boot style arrangement at the rear. I may get a chance to take some photos of these features sometime. Cheers for looking!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 better, and better, parr! this is so good looking, that it reminds me both the blackbird, and firefox! an excellent clint eastwood movie, that, unfortunately i can t find anywhere! BE THE FIRST TO KNOW; that as you where the one who inspired my first 5 wide, [the limo] you also inspired my next big creation, a spaceship with cargo, [vehicles] it s going to be made, and based upon 3 star destroyers midi-scale! as for your fighter, it s a masterpiece! excellent work parr!
hehe, such flattery... Well thanxs my good LEGO friend, I am very happy to hear such a thing. I believe the entire purpose of art, be it music, painting, or Mocs, is to connect with other people and stir a reaction. I am thrilled to have been of inspiration, and I sincerly look forwards to seeing this grand ship of yours to come. Like you, I just love this stuff...

Quoting Eric and Lawson B Parrington, this is a gorgeous build. It looks like a hybrid SR-71/F-22A kinda thing. It looks much bigger than it actually is too. Regards, Eric.

hehe, cheers, looks kind of like somthing the Germans might have come up with given afew more years in the big one...

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Iīm sorry for being absent so long. Dude, what a beautiful fighter! What an intimidating design. The Euros have taken their best design to absolute perfection. You should add a pic with all three versions together, so the evolutionary process could be seen more easily. Just a guess. Long live G.A.I.A.!
hehe, I was going to do just that, but then I realised the others were studs showing builds and figured it would look not so good? Glad you dig this thing, it's a personal best for me I'd say... Cheers!

Parrington, that thing is a sleek, deadly, heavily armed, heavily armored, and super-fast, neo-retro BEAST! Sometimes, as was said in the movie called "Meet the Robinsons," it doesn't matter if you fail; all that matters is that you keep moving forward. Apparently, the people from that company that came back from being essentially dead took that message to heart and had a comeback story for the ages of space craft aviation. Perhaps this surprise will lead them to make even better space craft, hovertanks, and such in the future, too? Anyway, if there is a MOC of the Day award on MOC Pages, then your MOC build would definitely be a winner, sir. You deserve it, Parrington. This is your best MOC build ever!

Now that's a thing of beauty. The entire engine assembly is top rate, and the overall feel screams "Bloody Murder" to anything that stands in its way. I would imagine the black colorscheme would make enemy pilots hard pressed to keep visual contact with this lethal opponent. Long Live GAIA!

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Not only dust but also fingerprints, molecules, atoms, quarks ... I know the problem. But Dave is right: Especially pics like the one with the 5 engaged thrusters should be shot on black when later you want to put them on a black background again, because the bricks always reflects their ambiance. Advice duly noted, after all, you sure know your FX! Cheers for lookn dude... But hey, before I forget: Wonderful design.
