MDAS-20 "Condor" - Mistarille Dawn Gunship

The MDAS-20 (Mistarille Dawn Aeronautics Sector) is a 2 man Gunship that can carry an additional 2 passengers if necessary. Primarily designed for frame hunting, the MDAS-20 operates on two giant rotating turbine propellers allowing for VTOL flight, two primary thruster jets at the back for lateral movement, and two secondary thruster jets for maneuvering. Armed with a multi-directional quad-barrel 40mm cyclic autogatling, the Condor can easily swoop in and rip most frames to scrap in a pass or two. The side intake engines rotate downwards and the forward gun shifts forward when landing.

LFOW's Note: This was a lot of fun to build, and went through a couple iterations. Definitely inspired by Halo Hornets, Avatar Scorpions, and some other builds I've seen on Flickr. I wanted to put a contribution to the vehicle part of our forge, as I feel it's an unloved corner, as well as give the Mistarille Dawn a new shiny, seeing as I haven't done much for them in some time.

I pretty sure this is the best lego vehicle I've ever seen.

[Sometimes I feel like I overuse terms like 'awesome' or 'so cool' for good looking frames and in thus doing deprive myself of adequate terms to describe the occasional really amazing frame. This is definitely one such moment. :cry: ]

Dammit, I need a real lego collection again. Nothing inspires more than having cool parts to play with.

This is very slick. I love that the front intakes act as landing gear when you rotate the VTOL engines.

I'm also always a fan of more Mistarille Dawn. Love that color scheme.

That landing gear is slick. This is awesomesauce all around, although the name "condor" brings to mind flying wings and big dropship/bombers, which this is not. I'm not sure what I'd call it, I'm not entirely clear on the themes in Mistarille Dawn names.

I love practically everything about this. Reminds me of the Banshees from Starcraft 2. The landing gear is particularly spectacular.

Incidentally, where did you get those propellers? I don't think I've ever seen them in quite that shape before.

That's because they aren't propellers. They are train wheel connectors.

...train wheel connectors.

Good lord, that is brilliant.
