Hi Star Wars Fans!

I first saw this ship in LEGO Star Wars 3 game in the Episode "Destroy Malevolence" I decided to have a go at building it in LDD first, then move on to real bricks. I am quite pleased with the result. Some (Small  :hmpf_bad:  ) pics:

The side.

I hope to build this soon, after I have sorted out the big LEGO mess in my room.  :hmpf_bad:

Thanks for looking,

How cool it would be if you could get all the parts in chrome.   :classic:

I managed to print off the inventory from the HTML list from LDD. It saved some time, supposed to me writing it all out!

I also to pick out some parts but there will be a Bricklink order or two! Heres what I have so far:

Stay tuned for more soon!

Its hard to say if it has an interior, when I make it I might mod my own idea to have a cockpit for C-3PO and Padme.

I think the cockpit is a little too high, to say it doesn't have a interior.
It's got a good design though, and it's a Yacht not a Fighter.

This is starting to look good! I like the LDD project, and I'm excited about seeing the finished brick-built result!

Hi all!

A quick update, the minifigs have been 100% finished. Here are the results:

From left to right: Battle Droid (x2) C-3PO, Anakin Skywalker, Padme.

Heres Padme:

Back

The gun was made out of a Captain Rex blaster and a half pin. The boots were added using a permanent marker. The decals were just glue and paper.

If you want decals:

Now ready to make the ship...

Great minifigs! [really just padme]  :laugh:
I thought that TLG's Padme was off on the face pretty bad. A nice more "womenly" face could have been better... :grin:
I cant wait for your ship, I attempted it an FAILED. I did build a prototype ship for a J-Type Naboo Star Skiff. I will
post it soon. I cant wait for your ship!!!!

I like the Padme figure. :thumbup: The decals are designed well, and the application's not bad either. :sweet: That's an interesting technique for her gun!

Hi all! The ship is now finished. WOW! It was hard, it may look all nice but the inside is extremely fragile. You look at it and it falls to bits! Anyway it only took 4 Bricklink orders but now its done! Some photos:

Posted Image
The only extra piece is a tan wall part, 1x2x5 to hold up the front landing gear.

Posted Image
The cockpit was the easiest part of the build! The inside only has room for a 1x2 tile and a chair.  :sceptic:

Posted Image
The completed model along with its minifigs.

Posted Image
On the shelf with the rest of my models.

The Brickshelf Folder (When Modded): Here It contains all the final photos and more. Press Up for LDD and Minifig Pics!

Thanks for looking everyone, hope you enjoyed this as much as I did, and one day you might see this on Cuusoo! You never know!  :sweet:

Yay! one thing though, how come you need a tan part to hold up the front of the ship? I thought you could make landing gear without it. YOU SHOULD PUT THIS ON CUUSOO! I have been dying to see this be made into a set. Im glad you made an interior. I think you did a fantastic job im in love :wub:
