About this creation
It's still a WIP but at least I've got it brick built.

Originally I thought that I'd have this one knocked off my 'to do' list with just a couple quick Bricklink orders. However, 4 Bricklink orders later as well as two local orders made here in Taiwan and still I'm lacking parts. I might just give up brick building for the much easier digital building... yeah, right.

The final color should be a Neon-Green Dark Purple scheme. Not the red that you see here.

I think one of the ideas I wanted to explore with this model and which would explain the inclusion of the Galaxy Squad member in the cockpit is that it is a craft designed to mimic the Insectoid vehicles which would allow GS to covertly infiltrate Insectoid base camps... or something like that.

Anyway, critiques are very welcome. I'm looking forward to finalizing this guy.

Quoting Eric Landreneau dig it so far. Looking forward to the final color scheme. My advice: try to make it longer, and not so tall. It looks really chunky, less dragonfly-ish. also, if this is meant for infiltration, consider an enclosed cockpit to hide the human. Maybe even move the cockpit down and forward, so the pilot sits (or lays prone on his belly) between the eyes. the eyes could swing outward, or perhaps a "mouth" could lower down to allow access to the cockpit.
Wow, some great suggestions but some of them seem like it would require a complete overhaul of the design. I especially like the opening mouth idea. As for the length and height of the vehicle, I wanted it to have a more compact almost chibi style to the build. Perhaps I could just rename it to 'Chunky Dragonfly' I am considering putting some kind of a canopy on it to cover the identity of the GS member. It is too bad that there is not some kind of an Insectoid mask that the Squad members could wear. Ha ha, maybe they could wear the new Bumble bee head cap http://www.bricklink.com/PL/12892pb01.jpg?1 Thanks a lot for your insightful input, I really appreciate it!
