It looks like there's a minimalistic interior in the hanger, but that's it.  And this is a beautiful MOC, I have to say.  I think it's all bley, right?  Great work... *wub*

How awesome is that?

If fluoride isn't dangerous, why was it added to the water in the Russian gulags and by the Germans during world war 2 to make the prisoners "apathetic" to what was going on around them?

Are many people seeing this because it's new and pops up in the recent folders section because I'm surprised it only has 531 views.
This guy has a nice looking Trade Federation cruiser ship thingy;

Wow... That thing is amazing. And the lighting is sweet...

Not much else to say then that...

That looks impressive.

Does it actually light up, or is it image recolouration? There's only oen pic of it being lit and no pics of the lighting mechanism

Sorry to burst your bubble Axle, but the person who built it posts on FTBT and I don't think that he works for TLC...I also highly doubt that it will become a UCS set.

Back on track, that thing looks really good, and it looks as though the builder put a lot of work into it.  But I'm afraid I'm gonna have to agree with Yoda on this one.  It's not really my favourite....
