Here's my latest MOC, a Republic Space station. My main inspiration was Cloud City, the round shape made it a challenge, so I went for that look. I also wanted to keep it very Republic like, so I went with the white and dark red color for the main colors and some bleys, and trans blue to break it up a bit.

I'm not used to building at miniscale, so C@C is welcome. :classic:

Oooh, great! Looks like a entry from the LDD contest. But did they have space stations in SW?

Thanks, and I believe they had space stations in the CW TV show. I'm not sure what episode though. :classic:

If the Death Star isn't a space station, then what is?

And let's not forget that even the prototype for that space station was conceived in a space station.

And there are many more...

That's pretty good! I like it. It reminds me of the Republic medical stations from the Clone Wars TV show:

Not bad looking space station '501st Commando' - I believe that in CW they are used as medical outposts for treating the clones wounded in battle.
Great work and keep on bricking '501st Commando' keep on bricking ! :sweet:

Cool space station! I like the concept of space stations in Star Wars a lot. How did you get those parts of the station to be rounded like that?

Great MOC 501st Commando! The techniques that you employed to create a circular design are very well-executed. It does look like a cross between the Cloud City and the clone medical space station in the CW series. The antenna-less round pieces are very unique details. The mini-Republic cruisers are also very cleverly built - they could even be separate mini-MOCs themselves. Great overall job! :thumbup:

That looks great! It does indeed look like a cloud city/medical center, now you just need to make a minifig size version  :thumbup: :classic:
