Jokes aside, this ship is my second (or third if you count my AWC entry) MOC and I think it's actually easily recognisable as a Naboo Ship. Anyway, here is the description I made for it (this is a fanon ship).....

Most widely used during the later days of the Galactic Republic, the Naboo Heavy Freight Carrier was one of many Naboo assigned ships that served the Royal Family of Naboo; the freight carrier being the largest and heaviest of them all. Lightly armed, the carrier had to be escorted by three or four Naboo starfighters when outwith the Naboo system, but only one when in-system. The ship came equipped with an unusually powerful hyperdrive, meaning it could travel faster than many of it's counterparts, or if need be, pirates. The ship was de-commisioned after only three years of service due to it's near uselessness in the long term; more of the Royal Family's ships were being outfitted with more efficient storage at it's time of decommisioning. It was used again shortly after Order 66 to transport three Jedi that were on Naboo at the time of it's release; they were all killed by Republic Forces.



And now, the pictures......

I really don't seem to do well with engines! I've tryed putting an extra layer on the ship to try and balance the engine part, but the ship looks like it's been eating too many snausages :laugh: . By the way, I call sausages snausages.


What do you think? Tell me in the comments. :classic:

I really like it! And I'm not normally one for minis... but I can certainly see where you are going with it!

With regards to the engines, looking at all the other Naboo ships the engines are only those cylinder things (the bits you have coming out the sides) I understand about the big ones at the back underneath, but perhaps integrate a couple more Naboo looking engines out the side, or perhaps a slightly bigger one coming out on top ( rather than the bigger ones at the underneath back... but then again, being a freighter it is entirely possible they might have put a big bulky engine on the back to help with its power of carrying freight)

Either way... Brilliant little moc! Makes me wish to see a bigger version of this now too!  :sweet:

I really like your mini-MOC, specially since that is probably my favourite ship in the whole SW universe.

Some nice shaping there it does look like a Freight ship.

Wow...imagine all the snausages that thing could hold... :drool:

Also jokes aside, I do like it! I don't love that the lights (blue and yellow) are different colours. It kinda ruins the symmetry that the rest of the ship has.  But I'm guessing that's a problem with the original, not your MOC. Great mini model!

Oh...oops. I need to read these things more carefully! :facepalm: Oh well. In that case, the different coloured lights are my only criticism about the MOC.

I originally had the grey slopes in the lights place, but I ran out after trying to curve the ship a bit more. Posted Image
