Dr. Robotnik's Ship (Sonic Movie)

The new Sonic the Hedgehog film has been out for a couple of months now, and I thought it was pretty good. I know it has gotten a lot of hate on the internet, especially with the original version. But I personally enjoyed it, and I made this. As seen in the final battle (I'll refrain from spoilers) Dr Robotnik's ship is a sleek, sci-fi vehicle piloted by one person. It has huge rings on either side which act as some form of propulsion system, as well as a jet engine in the rear. It has a sleek, aerodynamic style which makes it look very nice and clean. 

Details on the actual build:
-It measures 7 cm tall, a 25 cm wingspan, and 22 cm long.
-The ship has a mostly stud less design, with some exceptions.
-It is supported with a strong technic frame running through the interior for maximum durability.
-A white, black and red color scheme gives this a sci-fi and Robotnik feeling.
-There is an interior in the front portion that can seat one miniature comfortably with a control panel.
-The windshield lifts up to provide easy access to the inside.
-8 segment rings provide realistic shaping
-Minimum gaps and technic exposure while still obeying the laws of Lego.

Building Dr. Robotnik's Ship:
-The vehicle took me about a week of consistent quarantine building to finish it. I had some troubles with the rings, in order to get them shaped correctly, and angled properly. In order to achieve a smooth, rounded shape, I used lots of connector pins. (I'm not sure what they're called, the little bar and clip pieces) I tried to make it as durable as possible by creating a technic skeleton and building around that. 

I'm proud of the final result and hope you like it as well! Any constructive criticism and suggestions are welcome!
