Neoclassic Space TST-100 Sparrow
Here is my LDD model of a troop transport done in a Neoclassic Space style. After seeing some excellent examples of modern Lego Classic Space designs, Ive decided to try making some of my own. I call this the Tactical Squad Transport (TST-100), codename Sparrow. It is built to minifig scale. You can also see larger images at my Flickr site: https://www.flickr.com/photos/118702264@N05. You can find PDF building instructions on my Etsy site: www.etsy.com/ca/shop/KurtsMOCs.
About this creation

The TST-100 Sparrow is a troop transport ship, capable of carrying six fully equipped soldiers and operating in and outside of the planets atmosphere. The crew of the Sparrow consists of a pilot and navigator, seated in a tandem arrangement.


I based the Sparrow on a few of my favourite science fiction and real-life vehicles, such as the UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship from the movie Aliens and the AH-64 Apache and Mil-24 Hind-D. The design is centred around the large cockpit canopy and I used predominantly curved Lego pieces in various configurations to achieve a streamlined profile.


The engines for the Sparrow rotate for landing and hovering. It also uses retractable landing skids. For this model, the engines fully rotate and the landing skids fully extend.


The Sparrow carries a squad transport module, attached behind the cockpit. Six fully equipped soldiers can fit standing up. They exit the vehicle via a ramp at the back.


The Sparrows canopy extends (you need to move two pieces though) and the tail stabilizers fold away for storage.


Here, the squad transport module is detached.


Inevitably, there is a gunship version that Ive called the TST/A-101 Strike Sparrow. Two guided missile launch pods are added and the landing lights replaced with two ground attack cannons and targeting radar.


The Strike Sparrow would provide defence for the Sparrows in hostile environments or able to perform strike operations independently.


Strike Sparrows can carry the squad transport module.


In addition of the squad transport module, the Strike Sparrow can also carry a rotating missile launcher for air-to-air or air-to-surface engagements.


I know it is not following authentic Classic Space colours but the Strike Sparrow in stealth black looks pretty cool!


Here are two Sparrows inbound, escorted by a Strike Sparrow. Let the space adventures begin!

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Great ship! The shape in awesome, although I do think a little more gray mixed in wouldn't hurt. I really dig the removable modules and the back fins.
Thanks for the comments. I agree that there could be a bit more grey in the design but it was difficult to determine where that could be!
