The scene I tried to reproduce is from Babylon 5 fourth season, episode "Between the Darkness and the Light". It represents Whitestars attack on previously unseen Earth Alliance (Omega class) destroyer with semi organic hull design (from the Shadows).

Name for this build comes from the fact that in this scene Ivanova and Whitestar fleet goes purposefully to sector 300 although they know that some kind of ambush is waiting for them.

This is supposed to be about this scene with some artistic liberty:
[062_Warp_shadow_killer_b_reference-800]
This is where my reference/inspiration is from.  It can also be seen in this video (time stamp about 1:05). The red square is my base and the green rectangle is Whitestar with laser. 

Now some pictures without extra modifications:
[101_Warp_shadow_killer_Start_2-800] 

[102_Warp_shadow_killer_Attack_abowe-800] 
With some background blurring as my eight year camera doesn't like anything near to dark.
[103_Warp_shadow_killer_Attack_front-800] 
More from the front side.
[104_Warp_shadow_killer_Attack_back-800]
A little bit more from the back.
[105_Warp_shadow_killer_Attack_back2-800] 
I tried to get more dramatic angle.
[106_Warp_shadow_killer_Attack_behind-800]

Better picture about base (Advanced Omega destroyer part)
[107_Warp_shadow_killer_Attack_abowe2-800] 
One more.

Next some Whitestar only pictures:

Thank you all! I'm speechless.

I I couldn't  believe I could win, the competition was tough, many very good and innovative builds! I put celebration lightning on to my display cabinet [biggrin] (that is "Ambush in sector 300")

Alba83: Unfortunately I don't have anything for 'Red Revolution'. I have many models to fit that but I think I must have something special to give to GB (and it is great to have something done you probably wouldn't otherwise... [wink])
