Dart Flyby by Jeremy Williams is a dream spaceship. It has neither huge laser barrels, nor a spacious cargo section, nor an annoying astromech. The best thing about this ship is that it has only one seat. Only you, a massive ion engine behind your back and the endless beauty of the universe before your eyes. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Jeremy’s Neo-Classic Space fighters are way too good to choose just one, so you’d better check out his photostream and enjoy each of his builds.
Space isn’t always dark – sometimes there exists flashes of blue, gray and trans-yellow. ZCerberus has done a fine job capturing those colors with his Neo-Classic Space fighter. You have to love this style of space building, which has seen a significant comeback over the past ten years or so, alongside the Blacktron style of building. The color scheme here is spot on and there’s plenty of little details to enjoy. The converging blue and light bluish-gray lines on the side of the fuselage are a particularly aesthetic touch.
One also has to appreciate the good use of an otherwise awkward and bulky canopy piece (being Neo-Classic Space, a trans-yellow canopy is a must). Overall, this little space fighter looks more than ready to rain destruction on its Blacktron foes.
We’ve featured our share of mashups here at The Brothers Brick, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a convergence of Neo-Classic Space with Blacktron livery. Cole Blaq nails the NCS aesthetic with this “High Jack” fighter, featuring the expected blue and gray color-blocking and great parts choices for greebles. But in place of the yellow-black-yellow striping, Cole has included a complex, brick-built version of the Blacktron logo. What does it mean? Is this an NCS ship captured and pressed into service by the Blacktron villains? Why not just paint the whole thing black? It’s all rather mysterious…

Doctor Mobius felt inspired by the classic Galaxy Commander to put a Neo-classic Space twist on that venerable old relic, and came out with this lovely concoction, which he’s dubbed the Galaxy Tzar. Just like the original, the Tzar splits into several self-contained sections for more modular star-system domination.
