Post a single shot of your entries here.

When: June 1, 2012 - August 1, 2012
Where: Here
Why: Because I apparently suck at it, and it will be fun
How:
-Build a starfighter that looks like it could actually exist today. Put as much thought into the science behind it as possible. I am picturing Space Race era stylin' (think Gemini, Soyuz, Apollo aesthetics). But that is just me...show me what you picture when you think of what real space fighters will look like.
-As per Peter's Suggestion:
"The job of the space fighter is to deliver a tactical nuclear warhead (40-100kT yield). The warhead sits behind a DU or tungsten penetrator and is fired by a simple solid rocket motor. Such a weapon would be useful for destroying or crippling Apollo-era capital ships, space stations, or surface installations. The reason for fighters, then, is that they approach with a stealthier signature, thus avoiding capital-class weaponry, swarm the target in the hopes that one or more of the warheads hits its target, then attempt to escape using their remaining fuel."
Therefore give them all equipment/weaponry that they will need to get in, deliver their payload and then get out...all the while defending themselves from enemy fighters and defences.
-Two submissions per person (posted to contest entry thread in the Starfighters Group)
-If you do build two fighters, they have to be designed to operate differently. For example if your first entry is designed as an interceptor to be launched from a planets surface, then your second entry must be designed for strictly space operations (station or carrier based). And vice versa.
-Anything goes as far as modifying/custom/clone parts (but is has to be made of actual bricks, sorry no rendered submissions)
-Prizes:
1st: 60 Euro Bricklink Coupon, bragging rights and a trophy that I will build
2nd: 30 Euro Bricklink Coupon, and slightly less bragging rights than 1st place
3rd: 15 Euro Bricklink Coupon, and hardly any bragging rights at all

Yopityer-class experimental fighter by brickmack


A Russian fighter from the mid 21st century, based on Russian space capsule designs (Vostok, Soyuz, etc)

Soyuz 7K-L3 Space-plane.
Interceptor category.

Soyuz 7K-L3, Space-plane by Lego Junkie.

The cold war, a time of posturing and threats, a moment in history where the world could have changed dramatically.

Experimental space-craft are tested and shot into orbit in a race for the moon and the first lunar landing.
The 7K-L3 was a top secret military space-plane developed and launched in 1968, in an effort to reach the moon one last time before the rapidly advancing american space program could.


Yes, that is a fictional back-story, so don't go crazy on me for being inaccurate.

The international market for space fighters is in for a period of tumultuous change. New spacecraft that incorporate ‘fifth-generation’ technology will soon be entering the production phase, and are expected to enter military service in the coming decade.

Idea is that the main portion of the starfighter would have been built in space, and the cockpit capsules would later attach (and detach to change pilots; tag-team approach to manage prolonged time in space).

Orion entry pictureFINAL copy

The Orion Hunter class Interceptor represents the latest development in military spacecraft. Designed as a constant orbital deterrent during the first moon war, the Orion has two weapons bays which can carry a multitude of ordnance. The Orion also features a gyroscope cockpit and solar 'wings' to harness and conserve energy. An airlock at the rear of the spacecraft allows docking with spacestations for refuelling and rearmament.

LEO-NSV (1) by theFujikoma

Hello! New member here! Loved the idea for the contest so I had to jump in!

What I present to you is the LEO-NSV: Low Earth Orbit - Nuclear Strike Vehicle. I based the concept (somewhat loosely) off of Spaceship 1 (the X-Prize winner). Fitted with twin air breathing jet engines on the nacels, and one rocket motor on the central back, it can carry it's payload into a Low Earth Orbit and launch at either space based or earth based targets. A large, variable, wingspan provides plenty of lift for atmospheric flight for before and after weapon deployment!

Thanks!

The skies above the earth are crowded, filled with thousands of privately owned research satellites in this near-future world.
Some of these satellites keep with the laws and regulations, some do not.

Enter the Legle P-233, a Soviet telecommunications satellite armed with two N-1 Thermonuclear rockets.

Dromedary Class Starfighter by LukeClarenceVan

The Dromedary class starfighter is a Canadian starship for destroying space stations, large starfreighters, satellites, and orbital bombardment platforms. It is designed so that a base to launch from is not necessary, thus making it a valuable guerrilla ship. Armed with a nuclear missile and a pair of machine guns, it generally performs hit-and-run strikes then flees hostile starfighters. See photos of helicopter rotors, a parachute, and landing gear along with a description of how the Dromedary would complete a mission at MOCpages.

The European Space Agency will soon be releasing a new, cost efficient way of keeping a low-orbit manned presence in space. The whole unit is carried to orbit by an ESA rocket. A nuclear missile is housed in the rear, and the solar panel and engine/comm array detach from the habitation vessel. They re-attach to form a satellite that is left in orbit, while the pilot returns to earth!

Talk about last minute! 11:59 EST here!
