Swallows & Amazons
No, not a tribute to the classic children's novel - but the new SS-14 'Swallow' fighter, and its courageous pilot!
About this creation
This is yet another MOC for the ongoing strategy-fest that is Decisive Action!
The SS-14 is an entry in the category 'Defensive Air Power'.


Squadron Leader McClean, start your engines...


Taxiing to runway...


...and ready to fly!


A bird on the wing


Given the lack of recent action for SEAL's land defense forces, Liz McClean has been honing her piloting skills. She finds dogfighting almost as exciting as hand-to-hand combat.


To defend their airspace from enemy bombers, SEAL engineers looked to one of nature's most agile fliers, the swallow. Like its inspiration, the SS-14 can also glide for long distances, greatly extending patrol times and improving fuel efficiency.


Undercarriage tucked away. Variable geometry tail fins flank the engine, giving excellent maneuvrability at speed.


SS-14 hangars are rapidly constructed out of whatever materials come to hand. (That's pretty accurate actually... well I do have a MOC Olympics entry to build!)

Thanks for looking, and if you like it, please 'Like' it, it helps in the game!

Quoting Elk Guard Amazing form and function, this could fit right in with the G-Force "Battle of the Planets" vehicles!
Ah, another favourite show from my youth! If I ever have enough blue bricks I'd love to try and build a minifig scale Pheonix...

Liz must be one ace of a pilot! Swallows have interesting flight patterns! :)

Cool fighter!

General Lucas. Whatever has possessed you to build this fighter at this late date? Anticipating attacks that a few short weeks ago seemed unlikely? Surely, none would strike a member of the great and powerful Primal Team? Love the animal tie in. Good luck!

The plan view is really rather nice. I like the fold-down nose and landing gear: great play functions. The hangar looks a bit draughty though!

Excellent! The sweep of the wings is very nicely done.
