MFB-6 “Scarab” Multi-Role Fighter/Bomber
Probably one of the best designs to ever come out of Union’s research wing, the Scarab is a multi role craft that can be fitted to do what ever is needed. From anti-fighter to anti-ship, or missile platform to gunship, its modular design can fulfill any role. And powered by a Whitehorse 715 thruster, it speed & agility is more than a match for most fighters. Due to the high cost in manufacturing, its numbers are limited fleet and are flown, by only the most capable of veteran pilots.

Very nice.

I've always wanted a matching army.

I like these. If they weren't so futuristic I would build some to match my army (the scheme is similar; all grey).

They look like snow speeders.

I have a ton of grey pieces, most of the sets I buy have a lot of gray. Even old gray(learned the hard/expensive way that the new grey is the blue-grays, NOT the reg gray) from bricklink.

But a matching fleet isn't too hard, I just gathered what pieces I had most and divided them up and built with what I had. I had 5 engines and 4 cockpits. And built the Hornets, the Scarab was made with what I had left.

Love it, especially with the missile attachment.  The canopy blends well with the body of the ship.

You think I actually would evar eat a scarab beetle? I was thinking of all the things an eleven-year-old dimmy would do. I thought of taste LEGO bricks.
