89 Boxfighter

Finished 30/1 2009

This moc was made for the Small Starfighter Contest on the flickr-group SCI-Lug.
Rules: Make a starfighter that can fit within LWH 14x14x6 studs when landed.

Basically I tried to get as much as possible out of the limited volume by folding the craft as much as possible, and since everybody likes a huge gun, why not make a railgun twice the length of the craft (this seems to be the maximum weight 3 1×4 hinges can carry)?

  1. The cockpit stays in place because the top and bottom squeeze the beam from top and bottom (the fact that the beam is made up of 1×2 plates with rails and 2×2 tiles also create some extra friction).

    And the pilot have to get out in time: it’s those extra 4 studs inside the cockpit that close the gap at full extension.
