Well, it's been a journey and half, but my biggest ship to date is finally done. Clocking in at 98 studs long, it misses out on SHIP-rating only because I didn't want it to. I'm weird and contrary like that.

I've said pretty much everything about the build process in the WIP pics, so I'll keep it short and simple for a change. Here's a big, modular spaceship. There's loads of pics, enjoy. If you're coming to STEAM next weekend, you can see it in person. I can't promise any swooshes though, it's a little fragile.

A final note on the background: yes, it's a bit busy, but I thought having the original IP2K box art as the background would be cool. Unfortunately, I can't not have it, because I made a mistake when saving it last night. Besides, the white/grey background that all the other photos have tends to lose the wings, so at least with this picture you can see all the bits. I really must apologise for the photography though. Still, I tried. Enjoy it, because I certainly enjoyed building it.

More pics here.

That's awesome. I love seeing IP2K get some love. I'd love to see some interior shots.

Awesome ship  :thumbup:
I really like the modularity. It fit very well in the theme, and has a lot of play feature. I'm wondering where the big blue vehicule goes in the ship.
The section where you seem to have piled lots of equipement doesn't looks safe for space travel tough  :wink:

The size alone is impressive, but the detail on it is incredible :thumbup: Especially like the radar dish on top  :classic:

Wow. Good choice for the cockpit. I also like the satellite dish and the overall detailing.

Wow!  I believe this is the first interplanetary Ice Planet cruiser MOC I've seen!  And I love it!  The detail is off the charts and completely reminiscent of how the vehicles and structures were built throughout the theme!  I can see this vessel space-faring over the icy atmosphere of Krysto, escorted by Deep Freeze Defenders.

Thank you for sharing, IP2002 is my favorite Space Theme!
