/EDIT


Hi everybody,

This my version of the famous Venator, inspired by the design of Thire5. It's of course an UCS scale ship.

I would like to thank a lot Thire5, who permitted me to accomplish this project, with his agreement and some pictures during the building  :wink: . The geometry is almost the same of the Thire5's one.

The most important changes are the greebles, whitch are inspired of the ISD #10030. The feet are the same too.

Its length is 112cm, and took me 7 months to build .

I'm working on the buildings instructions. The first version of the documentation is available and is composed of MLCad files

You'll find it as an attachement of this post. The whole galery is available here : http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=404881

The ship is composed of about 5340 parts.

I hope you'll like it  :classic:

Probably one of the best Venators I've seen. Great job! I would love if TLC released a UCS Venator just like this :thumbup:

Another stunning Venator MOC! :wub:

I love almost every part of it. However, the side greebles get pretty repetitive. Perhaps a bit more variety there (it's just the same pattern, repeated about 10 times)?

Thank you very much  :classic:

@Rufus : The MOC is very strong, but not enough to turn it back. I have to take back pictures by an other way  :hmpf_bad:

Nevertheless, I took a screenshot of the whole modelisation ( when it was in progress ) :

I don't have built the back bay yet :cry_sad:  . Because I'm so lazy !!  :laugh:

Seriously, I really have to do this.

Odd that everyone loves making UCS venators. Well, this is one of the best! I think my favorite thing on it is the bridge design. Perhaps the engines could use just a teeny bit more greebles, but other than that, it's perfect! :thumbup:

That's just fabulous.
I love the colours and the greebles.
The overall design is just brilliant.
Well Done, I can't wait to see any of your other MOCs.

That is insanely huge!!!

I really love how accurate it is, right down to the hangar entrance, it literally looks like a scale model they could use in the movie!!

Most impressive!

Impressive, most impressive!

Really a nice MOC. Maybe one of these days I will feel inspired and build one too. It has been maybe 10 year since I build my own models.
Did you use the frame from the stardestroyer and build the Venator over it?

I reused the patterns of the ISD to do the side greebles. I know, it's quite repetitive, but it brings some integrity whith the UCS line.  :classic:

No, it doesn't, because the frame takes almost all the space in the ship. In addition, I built it in an UCS way, not a playset

The first version of the documentation in included in my first post, with a partlist, the MLCad models, and a readme. I'll try to improve it, but the size of the MOC complicates the matter  :hmpf_bad:

I am very flattered ! :vader:

The frame is not the one from the ISD, I reused the geometry of the thire5's Venator.

Very nice. I like the detail on the turrets. I struggled with that part on mine. Couldn’t find the right balance between size and detail.

This ship is utterly ridiculous.  Fantastic.  The greebling is beautiful, and it is one of the best MOCs of this ship I've seen.  Looking forward to your next piece!

I aggree with you. I spent a lot of time to get THE turret : to have this result, I worked betwen 5 and 6 hours....just for a 14 parts turret  :laugh:
Seriously, It was very difficult.


PS: I did a HUUUUGE mistake on the documentation : I forgot to include the frame's file. Now it's fixed. I also added some intructions about the order of the building.

This is an awesome MOC Polo and a great way to introduce yourself as a great MOC´er.
It looks very good and accurate. Great idea to use the ISD´s greebles to the Venetor.
