XB-47 'Hare'-class Light Frigate

The XB-47 'Hare'-class light frigate is the latest addition to the Royal Leporidic Defense Fleet. With extremely heavy armor, twin missile tubes, a rapid-pulse cannon, a D14 Gyro Blaster, and a hidden seeker plasma missile launcher, it is by far the most heavily armed and armored craft in the fleet.

After finally bartering my friend's Ferrari car set off him, scrapping it, and finally getting around to sorting some red parts, I decided it was time to build something bigger. So I did. This is one of my biggest quality ships I've built in a while, and I like it quite a lot.

It has a number of features.. first, there is a landing leg that folds out of the belly to support it when parked. Also, on the head, there's a sort of 'mouth' that opens up to reveal missiles, and finally the entire head comes off as an escape pod.

I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

9/10. Cool ship, but could look less... i don't know... jowly. See the parts hanging down in front? Kinda not cool looking.

Cool functions though!

That be the forward sensor array. It ain't beautiful.

But now that I look at it, I think I should have added a screwdriver or two, and the coffee mug is a bit garish.

Anyway thanks for the comments everybody!

I'm not sure I agree with the people on CS who say that it needs more weapons, but I do think that the weapons it has need to be more prominently displayed; right now they're all fairly far back on the hull and on the underside, where they're least visible. You should probably move some of them to the top and/or the front section of the ship. The rest of the MOC, though, is awesome. In particular, the SNOTage is incredible.

I like it all. I always enjoy the stuff you make, though.

The back end is really amazing, as is the escape pod feature.
