Mercenary EWP "SCRAMBLER" / SDR Funkstörer

An advanced Electronic Warfare Platform for jamming enemy transmitions and generally messing up their play. Strahl forces called it the "Funkstörer", (radio interferer) which came to be recognised as the official callsign for captured Scramblers among Strahl Republik fighter squadrons. Merc pilots used the term "Funkster" to describe the Strahl captured-converted craft and to differentiate it from fighters of the same make on their side.

 

Seeing the other entries, most of which are quite good, I could not help but notice a lack of color. Sand green is the primary non-neutral color here, with other random colorful bits. I like to call that the "Gould Doctrine". Taste the rainbow or GTFO.

 

The more I look at it, the 1 x 4 striped tile looks out of place. If only I had the light grey version for the first-gen X-Wing set. Lament.

 

There are two *mega bloks* pieces in the spirit of the contest. They are the two bent antennas on the nose of the craft. Given Lego's quality lapses in color, it might as well be dark bley.
