Oh it isn't the best ship I've built but it does win first place for the biggest. At around 40lbs and 5 feet 6 inches this minifig scale Action IV Cargo Transport takes the cake for the Rook collection of MOC's. Hours to build = unknown.

Ship modifications include: extended rear hanger bay for extra cargo, 2 side twin laser cannons, 2 side twin sonic missile launchers, 2 twin rear guard laser cannons, 2 forward devastating ion cannons with enough juice to put an ISD in to an eternal nap, kitchenette, dinning area, bathroom, shower room, several sleeping areas, rear data center, front cargo bay, maintenance bay for speeders and smaller vehicles, a luxury command control center, a current crew of 15 plus 4 droids, 2 speeder bikes, 2 speeders, 1 raft, 1 motor cycle, 1 cargo sled. Also includes special guest appearance by Luke Skywalker and Dack Ralter. Yes I know this doesn't fit into any story line, but they are there never the less.

Wow great work!

It's huuuuuge! And there's so much detail in it, very cool  :thumbup:

Sweet little vehicles you made for it, too  :classic:

It's just a little bit weird colored at some places, but that's not that bad as you don't see them if the outer hull is closed :tongue:

Great! You're a very talented builder I'd say  :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:  


Best regards, Benny

That's great! Out of all the Star Wars freighters and capital ships I'd never dream of building an Action IV, but that one is very cool and I'm glad you decided to share. Posted Image

Thanks. I'll give you some back story. I was talking about pushing the limits of MOC size, when I decided I better show everyone what I mean. I had built MOC's about 100 studs long before. I had been saying you can build really big just use one "ish" color on the out side and fill the inside with whatever. In this case I didn't even really touch my "blues" and was able to build a MOC twice as long as anything I had ever built before.

An inspiring and well thought-out work, an original and impressive ship indeed. It looks cool on the outside and´s equipped with a wonderful
interior, and there´s even a shower!  :blush:  I especially like those clever slide-out compartments and how the little crafts´re stored. Neat!  :thumbup:

Thanks everyone for you're comments. I've started to recycle the pieces for a few contests that are going on right now. I'm 2 hrs into ripping it apart. Looks like I'm about half way so 4 hrs just to take it apart.  :blush:

That is a beautiful ship with some nice details! The interior is very realistic, that's something I like to see.

I look forward to your future works!
