T-76 Spearhead
About this creation
So, this one has been sitting in my living room for well over two weeks. Completed. Waiting for me to set it up and take some pictures. Well, I found a moment to breathe after the Christmas season and decided that while I was breathing, Iíd take a few photos.

After my VICtory Viper, I still had an urge to build a one-man fighter. I started out just building a ship with which I wanted to use the Falcon's canopy. I also wanted it to have a long nose and some extra engines. I wanted it to look fast and aerodynamic but still have the bulk that I usually put into my ships. About three quarters of the way through, I realized that I was building something that looked like an X-Wing fighter that had been hitting the gym. Thatís when I decided that it needed an astro droid. Not something I would normally do, but I thought that it looked appropriate in this case, plus it was kind of a little poke at myself for missing originality by about 36 years.

The main pic is done with GIMP, and I want to thank Jon B especially for helping me with finding some new fonts. I like the character that the text adds to the pics. Iím feeling especially quick and to the point today, (well, quicker and more to the point than usual, anyway), so Iím going to shut up and just let you check out the ship.

May I present, the T-76 Spearhead.





I had such fun with the first photo, that I decided to edit a second. I may build ships just so I can edit photos.























A look at the cockpit without the fig.





Before this Christmas, I didn't have a lot of red and white, but I dipped into my limited supply of those colors to add a little character.

















Thanks for checking it out. Let me know what you think.

Quoting eric s this is really an awesome ship and nicely built and detailed. is this ship built within the "Star Wars universe" or otherwise? it looks like it'd make a great heavy fighter or bounty hunter ship-of-choice (SW). regardless, it's awesome and would fit either way. what do you use to edit your images?
Thanks, Eric. It's not one that has shown up in the Star Wars Universe, but seeing as how I'm one of those huge SW fans that likes to complain about plot holes and character development but can't stop watching the movies, I can't deny that my inspiration inevitably comes from them. I use GIMP to edit my photos. It's not quite the quality of program that Photoshop is, but the price is right, it being free and all;)

I really like the smooth but greebled look of this ship and also how the X-shaped engines and the canopy give that nod towards Star Wars, without just copying it. The blend of greys plus black works very well, with those stripes bringing a touch of colour but don't distract the eye from the rest of the build. Looks fun to swooosh too!

Quoting Josh Sartain You have inspired me to start building again! This ship is amazing.
I don't know if I've received a better compliment than that right there. I'm thrilled that this work is going to make you belly up to the old drawing board. Thanks.

Tim, I truly feel like this little fighter would be a successor to the X-Wing and E-Wing fighters and it also makes a bit of an homage to the Arc-170 fighters too if I am not mistaken. At any rate, I could easily see this fighter being around in the Star Wars: Expanded Universe novels and you did a good job on the build. The greeling was spot-on and it truly felt like it was something other than LEGO.

Awesome. Reminds me of a Z-95 Headhunter with more engine bits added to it. Looks beasty ^_^
  January 8, 2013
Wonderfully beefy!!! It's the love child of an ARC-170 Starfighter and an A-10 Thunderbolt. My only suggestion would be to eliminate the main thruster (I know, BLASPHEMY!!!) It seems to detract from the awesome X engine pods giving it less agility. Maybe a rear gunner would be a good replacement. All in all, it is a spectacular design for future airframes. I look forward to "more beef."

Wow! This is a great ship. I was sure I commented on this before but I guess I missed it. Anyway I loved the engines and just the overall sleek design. Oh, where did you get that windshield I have never seen that one before? Great job on a most impressive creation. Two thumbs up! :)

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Fantastic, Tim. You really managed to combine two contrasting design styles and it works. It looks like a heavy fortress which is also lightning fast and nimble. Just a little thought: If you plan using GIMP (or Photoshop or anything else) to put your model into a space scene, you should take the pictures in front of a black background, not a white one. That way, you avoid the thin bright outlines around your model.
Thanks, Thorsten. Is it ok to call you Thorsten? Glad you like the build. Taking photos to a black background is something I hadn't thought of, though I can't imagine why. Thanks for the advice. I'll see if I can't come up with a black background for my next work.

Quoting Mister Lego ~ Awesome! I love the wings, and the thrusters are also very cool :D
Thanks, Mister Lego. Glad you like it! I tried a couple things I haven't tried before on this one.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Awesome job on this guy, great to see some more angles and all the hidden details. Watch out with how many of those fantastically detailed cockpit interiors you do, if you keep it up you'll have a real niche. ;) Excellent work!
Thanks, Luke. Glad to hear from you. I worked with the angles a little more than I usually do with those engines, but it's an art I am far, far away from mastering;) Oh, and thanks for the advice on the cockpits. I'll make them a little more plain. I'd hate for people to expect too much of me;)

Quoting Senator Chinchilla . Awesome looking design! Giant thrusters are always cool.
Thanks, Senator. Yeah, I like the thrusters too.

Quoting Matthew C Oh wow! Excellent spacecraft! I like that smooth look, as well as the sleek engine/turbines sitting on the wings. And those wings; they're just full of SNOT aren't they? (Puns never get old eh?) I liked your cockpit design too; that was pretty neat. I don't think I've seen one like it before. Oh yeah, Happy 2013 btw!
Thanks, Matthew! Always happy to hear from you, young Mastermind. Glad you like the ship, and that you have joined me in my crusade to keep puns from going out of style. Thanks for the comment on the cockpit, it's one of my favorites so far. Happy 2013 to you too, sir.

Quoting Brick Boy This is truly a master piece, but um... where did you get that windshield? It isn't off brand, is it? But other that those some details, great MOC! P.S. This is inspiring.
Thanks, Brick Boy! Glad you like it. The canopy is an official LEGO piece. It comes from the most recent Millennium Falcon set. It's a fun piece to work with, but you have to get creative about how you use it.

Quoting Topsy Creatori(StoveTop nomore!) Yes, you may present it! And what a presentation! Superb! Thanks! :)

Quoting Rich Collins... 257th Wolf Wow. Just wow! That thing looks faster than an A-Wing, Tougher than a Y-wing and better armed than an X wing! I bet it could plough through a whole fleet of TIEs and come back without so mcuch as a scratch!
Ha! I can only hope. Glad you like it. My main inspiration is Star Wars, so I guess I'm not so surprised that it looks like an X-Wing.

Thanks, Chris. There really a lot of ways to use that Falcon canopy, but I am trying to find as many as I can. Glad you like the angles. I haven't done much with angles to this point in my career as a MOCer, but I try, man, I try.

Quoting Mihe Stonee awesome design ;-) ! the X-enginges are wonderful! If you are only building ships to edit the photos... Mmmh i could send you a picture of my Nostromo ;-) ?? I tried it also with GIMP, but i'm not really good at this point...
Thanks, Mihe. I may have been kidding a little about the photo editing. I have to have a MOC to do it in the first place, right? I have to admit, I don't have a lot of time on my hands for editing my own MOCs, but if you want to send me a photo that you'd like to see in space, I'll see what I can do. tim_s_clark@woh.rr.com. I recommend checking out some demo videos on YouTube. They were a lot of help for me.

Quoting Bernhard Schumacher Great work and a nice ship. The cockpit is great.
Thanks, Bernhard. I may spend more time on cockpits than I should for justice to the rest of the build. Maybe I'll do a MOC in the future of just a highly detailed cockpit.

Quoting David Alexander Smith The bulk of this little fighter is an interesting aesthetic decision. Stunting what one would expect (if they were thinking X-Wing) to be wings into thrusters gives this a sort of dragster feel. I really like the multiple cylinder boosters over one large piece, it's a technique I use and somehow seems more fitting to smaller faster craft. Is GIMP a free programme? I'm lucky enough to have photoshop at home, but would be interested to try an alternative based on this and your earlier results. Now I think if you can catch another breath, it is time to make that little 30-100 piece CS entry.;)
Thanks, David. I always appreciate what you have to say. Your comments are always so analytical and really takes my works apart to see the details that others tend to overlook. If I didn't know any better, I'd say you are somehow getting exploded views of my MOCs;) Yes, GIMP is free, which almost seems unfair to me. The effects you can get just with what comes with the program, (not to mention all the free brushes you can find on several websites), makes this program maybe a tad inferior to Photoshop, but still a very effective tool for photo editing. And I am working on the CS entry. Sheesh, the pressure.

Quoting JS Can Really cool ship and I like the effort you put into the display by adding a background. Great job!
Thanks, JS. The backgrounds are fun. GIMP is a free download and I recommend it, (and some demo videos on YouTube), to anyone that wants to add some interest to their MOCs.

Fantastic work Tim. I love the overall shape and all the little details are excellent. I especially like the cockpit and thrusters (the whole rear end actually). I also really like the photo editing Ė The way the laser blasts are outside of the boarder really makes the ship jump out of the page. Thanks for your latest comment, very kind of you Sir.

Quoting Jon Lande very cool. especially the cockpit. the only things i would do differently is put a bunch of 1 stud transparent blue or red pieces to the engine thrusters, just to give it some pop. also, that cone piece in the very back of the engine, i would turn 180 degrees so that it flows better. maybe even make it transparent blue or red too and add a transparent antenna to the tip of it
Wow. I didn't even notice that piece in the back of the engine. I normally check to make sure those things are straight. Can't believe I missed it. Thanks for all the suggestions.
