Excellent, simply excellent. Amazingly accurate, and it looks so good. I like the landing gear too, very nice.

Saw this on Flickr the other day and thought it was a full sized ship. Then I clicked it, and was pleasantly surprised. A lot of great detail in a small MOC.

I've been eyeing this from the link on the old FBTB. It's detailed and small, nice. It also has studs, so it looks like LEGO. I like judicious use of SNOT, but completely smooth models can get a little old. Great use of tiles for the pattern on the back of the ship.

Looks like you took LEGO's riff (like the angled plates for the "body") and cranked it up several notches.

This is an excellent model. I can't really knock anything about it. Absolutely love the rounded underbelly of the front fuselage.

Now, this is pretty cool. Aw, who am I kidding? This is awesome! The cockpit is incredibly constructed, it immediatly caught my eye, not just because it was in front.

I don't know why I dropped back here again lately. LEGO can no longer hold my interest, and I'm almost certainly gone forever. Bye to all who remember me.

Location: Haven't been on in nearly a year. Probably gone forever. Nostalgia brought me back one last time.

Schweet. Lego can eat your dust after that poorly-made "official" version they released. You've used a myriad of remarkable building solutions and some of the coolest greebling I've seen in a while.

Wow love the new site, and the frigate is terrific as well. Everything is spot on, definitely another awesome "mini."

Now, you really did a nice job on this one :D . I really love the detailing you put into your must have taken a long time to put together, but by the reactions of everyone, I'd say it was well worth it.
