Sovjini strike craft.
About this creation
So after a long while away from my bricks, I got a brief respite
on the weekend. This strikefighter and an unphotographed twin are the results. Enjoy.

Backstory:
The Sovjinar are a peculiar race. Most races only have to launch themselves off the surface of a planet to get to space. The Sovjinar, being a deep water aquatic race, had to get to the surface first, then launch into the stars.

The Sovjinar require deep sea pressure, so their craft are highly pressurized. As well, Sovjini spaceflight was delayed for a decade or more due to their high reliance on sonar. ( sonar doesn't work in space ). They now navigate by using a system that uses solar output of their local star to point them in the right direction.

It is a third of a brick too high for entry into the SCI-LUG contest. Also, MOCpages really dumbed down the photo quality.

I know what you mean about the studs, but lego hasn't seen fit to make those wedge pieces studless and I wanted the fin look. Ah well.

I agree, I really like those engines. However, I feel that the studs on the 1x4 tiles in the front somewhat ruin it. Still, it's a very nice spaceship!

Cool! I like the engines on this, and you've made good use of SNOT.
