The Pinpoint is a futuristic version of modern attack helicopters such as the Apache. It takes off and lands vertically, and can hover in place using some type of anti-gravity generators housed in the red cylinders. The craft carries a crew of two and is armed with a beam laser cannon, multiple guided missile launchers, and two heavy cruise missiles.
The gunner on the left looks like he got a bad burrito from the hover-lunch-wagon. The pilot on the right is smiling because it's his turn to pick the tunes. Non-stop Van Halen for the whole six-hour mission.
I like the idea of a beam laser powered by the gunship's reactor. You could fire it constantly all day long. Of course the effectiveness is reduced by smoke, dust, rain, etc., and at long distances the beam disperses too much to cause damage. That's what guided missiles are for.
super cool design,just seeing your creation and others like it in the same vien has inspired me to get back into designing lego ships.constantly staring at your creation ,makes me wonder how you did it and where did you get such cool parts.ive bought 3 starwars lego sets to get started,i cant wait to put up my creation as soon as im finished.
WANNA MAKE IT EASTERN BLOCK??? Instructions:
1. Replace tan with gray.
2. Make the curves as non-curvy as possible.
3. Delete any curves that won't sharpen into edges.
Nice (as usual) but really, the goatee-style gun doesn't look right. If you had put something under it (to reduce the "cockpit sticking out into space" look) it definitely would have gotten a 5.
This is one of my favorite spacecraft designs in MOC pages. It has a remarkably nice/futuristic shape and the use of the pieces is excellent. Having both pilots sitting in there seems incredible (from the available space point of view). I do not understand why it is being rated a 3. This is more than a 5.
One of the best hover-vehicles I have seen, it clear who's going to win the 2-man category in the MHC. It's amazing, good thing I'm entering in the Dropship category. I am in love with that canopy from the Rescue Chopper!
The color scheme looks good as it is. The tan keeps it from looking like an Eastern Blok hovership (I'm assuming you don't want it to look like that). I like how it has all the hinges, especially around the engine.
