Someone had to do it and let’s face it, it was always going to be me. Here are some (very minor) nods to Dune in Wing Commander! my name is a killing word”, a quote from the David Lynch Dune film.And the trailer, for good measure. Check it out and help make a sequel happen!
The TCS Tiger's Claw! To ask a leading question: how many engines does she have? Let's find out!
I finally got around to finishing the other 2 Tech Drafts I wanted to do; The Rapier-G and the Excalibur. Their sized for 11x17/12x18 but I'm going to see how they look as 8x10 prints before I go big.

So - that's it... I'm done. It's funny - I only wanted to add a bottom view but ended up reworking almost the whole frame because I felt the overall height to be too high and the wing/main body proportions to be somewhat off. But now it's finished, and quite honestly I'm pretty satisfied with it. It looks sharp and fast (at least to me). What do you think?
And yes - this is finally the end of my drawing time! I already made contact with a friend who's a 3D artist from Volkswagen... He'll help me visualize this baby.
From BrickLink Studio to reality. I had to fix some structural issues but the Lego Wing Commander F-54C Epee is finally finished. In real Lego bricks :).
Did you know Colin Powell had a Wing Commander ship named after him? In Secret Missions 2 there’s a series in which you rescue the TCS General Powell, a Drayman troopship, while its crew fends off Kilrathi boarders. A reminder that SM2 was scripted DURING the first Iraq war!
