The Needle is what you assemble and fly when you do not have the funding for a UniPod. Less pilot comfort, less armor, less weapons and fewer docking slots. It still gets the job done.
Instructions (includes part list)
The design shows some compromises made due to running out of suitable bricks due to having built the Mosquito, Wedge, UniPod before. It was originally intended to be the cockpit for the "Square Falcon".
