CVPA-F34k 'Naja' Attack VTOL
About this creation
CVPA-F34k ‘Naja’ Attack VTOL™

Lore: The Naja is one of the oldest continual serving dedicated atmospheric aircraft still used by the United Colonial Military. It has seen use during the Border Wars, the Contact War, and numerous other engagements. Throughout its history the Naja has had countless upgrades and improvements/modernizations designed to extend service lifespan. When Borsch Aerodynamics won the contract to replace the Naja with a newer more advanced aircraft the company did not veer far from the proven design of the Naja when they created the CVT-Gs39 ‘Shrike’. However, the cost of manufacturing new aircraft was considerably high for the newly formed United Colonies, as such the Shrike never truly replaced the Naja, and most Shrikes now augment the UCM’s existing Naja squadrons. The CVPA-F34k ‘Naja’ is a single pilot twin engine fast response vertical takeoff and landing atmospheric fighter, these nimble craft are primarily deployed as a dedicated ground attack/support role aircraft. While the Naja is a fast and maneuverable fighter it lacks many of the capabilities necessary for effective air to air combat and therefore generally stays under 4500 meters when in combat actions.

The Naja is a highly versatile aircraft equipped with a nose mounted 20mm G3h ‘Storm’ gatling cannon, this four barreled liquid cooled electric weapon is used primarily to engage lightly armored vehicles, aircraft and infantry fortified positions and structures. The load bearing hard points allow for a variety of ordinance attachments including missiles, rocket pods, precision guided bombs, and even surveillance equipment. The aircraft is equipped with several countermeasure systems, chaff and flares are deployed by two tail mounted launch tubes, and a electronic jamming suite is located beneath the cockpit. A unique drive system to the Naja is a pair of grav panels that are mounted below the tail joint to the body, while not used to augment propulsion or lift they do assist with pinpoint maneuverability that make the Naja incredibly responsive.

I instantly get the vibe of a seventies series combined with some japanese sci-fi when I look at this, very hard to say something specific but the obvious: cool :)

Quoting Cedekane . Love the bulky designs. On the missiles the circular part, I can't even imagine what that could possibly be. Pictures are really inspiring, great work.
Thanks man! The part you mentioned is this http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=61680 with the other cylinders just sleeved over it.

Quoting Connor Simpson As usual, gorgeous presentation takes your builds to the next level. I must ask, what program(s) do you use to produce these images? Also, in the second photo what did you use in the background? Finally, what kind of lights do you use to light your stuff and do you use a green screen for photos like the main one? I'm sorry to pester you with my many questions, yet I would like to get better at photo editing, and you seem to be a master.
I first and foremost only shoot in RAW compression - CR2 fromat. It allows for endless possibilies when it comes to post processing. I use Photoshop CS5 for the major image changes. I then import it into Gimp 2 for final sizing and letterboxing. I've found that Chromakey Screens tend to border your lines with a horrible tint so no. I actually use the free select tool and pixle by pixle outline what I wan't gone. Then it's finding a background that suits the forground. Matching up color is pretty fun though. I've built many actions in CS5 to help out. But to answer your question about light. It's something that we all have to work with and is by my oppinion the absolute best light source. The Sun. Every shot is taken outside. I despise flash. And the second photo? I used a picture of the desert. You can see the rolling dunes kinda. We needed something in the background. It looked to blank. But hay, It's all about your knowledge and equipment. We use a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II Digital and I've found the - EF 180mm f3.5L Macro USM to be the best lens for lego. Add an aperature of around f/5.0 and balance out the exposure to a -6 and the positive to be around +0 and your set with a shutter of around 1/6000th of a second. We don't even bother with a tripod when you have that kind of shutter. Also ISO is always set at 50. My brother builds most of these, I just take the pictures haha Here. http://merzlakphotography.yolasite.com/

Um Vibor, it has so few comments 'cause it was only uploaded today... Epic work here, both with the camera shots and the mocs themselves. Some exploded shots or WIP shots would be nice, seeing how it all comes together and what techniques you use would be awesome. Great work!

This is great. The shaping, write up, pictures, you have it all. I especially like the picture where the craft seems to be old dark grey with an olive tinge. Nice work!

I totally agree. The build is great but such a great use of camera adds to the quality of all of those creations you posted. What I can't believe is how come some badly done MOC's get all the attention while this has only one comments not including mine
