Silent Strike
About this creation
So I havenít been able to bring myself to tear down Epherna 1 yet, but I still wanted to build. Luckily, the Small Starfighter Building Contest popped up in the Starfighter group on Flickr. The object of this challenge was to build a starfighter that could fit in a box that measure 14x14x6. This is my entry.

Since itís a small fighter, I wanted to build a craft that had the appearance of something fast. My own sense of irony made me decide to throw six cannons on it. My annoying sense of balance made me want to add larger engines than it would need to offset the cannons firing off in a 0-gravity environment and sending the ship into a flat spin. It would be like losing Goose all over again. (It was Icemanís fault, by the way. If he wasnít going to take the shot, he should have bugged outÖbut I digress). I imagine this fighter shows up in a swarm and obliterates larger craft with a series of quick, hard-to-track attacks, which is why I named it the Silent Strike.

Iím particularly pleased with how the core of the ship turned out. Iím pretty sure Iíve seen the oval windscreen tucked inside the larger white windscreen on another ship, but I canít for the life of me remember where I saw it. If you did this, and I commented or liked your work, youíre probably to blame for this cockpit design, and I thank you and give you full credit for the idea. Please, let me know.

If you didnít, then it was my idea and you canít have it.

Letís have a look.















A look at the underside.


It barely fits, but it fits.


The rear piece removes easily, allowing the blue windscreen to raise.



So there it is. If you are on Flickr and you like to build starfighters, I would recommend checking out this contest in the Starfighter group. Despite the smaller size, this was quite the challenge. I enjoyed it so much, I think I may go back and build another.

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

Such a neat little build. It has all of the thought and detail of your big builds too. I wonder if it would be possible to hinge the white cover on the rear of the canopy bubble? It's a good way to cover up the back hinges on the bubble and make the build look smooth.

Wicked little fighter, Chief! All the little zigsags make it look fast! And it was TOTALLY Iceman's fault.

If anyone on the command deck of the larger craft got to see a swarm of these coming in for an attack, I'm sure they experienced a moment of wonder and perhaps even a smile before they were blasted away! :)

Brilliant little fighter design Tim! Love how you attached the weapons underneath, very cleaver. What a fantastic idea to build the launch bay the size of the box measurements of the contest. Best of luck in the contest Tim!

Nice clean and simple design, the added colour from the cockpit and other highlights really add to it too.

A very nice design, I like the round shape glass front. So a nice Fighter is what every Pilot want. Great Job Tim

Even if you did steal it , the execution on the body with its perfect tubular shell is very pleasing. 6 cannons, really is that all. Seriously I'm quite intrigued by this contest, you might well see a DAS fighter soon.

That's an awesome little ship! The folding weapons on the bottom of the ship is just like the ones I have on a fighter ship I have called the Mayfly. Good job!
