Classic Space ambassador spaceship LL99 + similar space fighter MOCs

Recommended Posts

The larger ship is owned by Classic Space Ambassador and vintage 1978 astronaut Jenny, who uses the ship to conduct meetings with just-discovered worlds to talk to them about membership in the Lego Space Congress. They don't have to join with the Classic Space forces, as they can represent themselves (in the League of Non-Aligned Worlds) or join another force such as the Roboforce Alliance, M-Tron Company, Futuron Generational Holdings, Neo Nexus Force, The UFO and Insectoid Leagues, among many others.

At least two (if not more) of these advanced fighter craft accompany the Ambassador's ship on diplomatic missions to newly discovered worlds.  The "Ambassador's fleet", (as it's known internally to Classic Space senior officers) also go to war-torn systems where the Classic Space forces can try mediating a peace settlement for the benefit of the galaxy as a whole. (sometimes it works, sometimes not so much...)

This model was originally a @hachiroku model of the the Nubian Royal Star-ship from Star wars Episode I (The Phantom Menace), as seen here. I followed his instructions and gave it my own twist with bulkier engines, elongated fuselage and a blue color streak or three, along with bumblebee stripes for the official neo-Classic Space look. Speaking of engines, these "glow" trans-orange whereas the original model didn't have any afterglow color. I also added radar dish pieces to them, as it wouldn't be classic space without these parts, would it?

Usually, Jenny travels with a flotilla of other ships representing a smorgasbord of interests such as those listed above from across the Milky Way. (and beyond!) to each new world, where they each have five Galactic-standard minutes to state there case for their league, and why the world in question should join them. The world can then vote to join a established group, not join any and remove itself from the forum completely in self-imposed seclusion, or join the League of Non-Aligned Worlds. (This league of last resort is a patchwork of rebel colonies, drifting moons, mining asteroids, and separate worlds that is sadly the dumping ground for "everyone else" in the Space Congressional system. It is so fractured that they don't even have a appointed leader, but several semi-leaders of different categories of their members. As no-one is above anyone else, it's pure chaos in that section of the bureaucracy!)

The inside of the ship, with one part missing from under the glass dome at the rear (the stellar map of the Lego Galaxy) In front of the cockpit is a storage area for cargo or consumables and the loading ramp. The ship has two forward-facing laser blasters under the main wedge shaped-front end, and three landing legs. The cargo area lifts away, while the passenger area roof folds open 90 degrees or so. This ship seats three figures, too.

To accompany the (former) Royal Naboo starship- turned Ambassadorial CS ship, I took set 75092, Naboo Starfighter from 2015 and turned it into an advanced Classic Space fighter, borrowing the cockpit from a X-wing in the process.

The engines are, again, my own design, and so are the twin guns under the leading edge of the main wing. As usual, the Classic Space logo goes on 4 x 2 nose slope piece on all three ships.

(Hopefully these will be built at some point in 2020, with these two new fighters replacing my Deep Space Fighters from 2015)

Any thoughts?

Nice! Awesome MOD right there Murdoch!!! :thumbup: :sweet: Only last week I'd just learned of @hachiroku's model after seeing a rebuild of it by @darththeling... :classic:

SNIP

I saw @darththeling's model too! His model inspired me to get going on my version.

I just finished redoing the first post, with a longer-bodied main ship and a CS version of the Naboo N-1 star-fighter from 2015. What do you think of it now, @Digger of Bricks?

Looking pretty good! :classic: I think my favorite touch has to be the Bright Blue "ribbing" added to the engines of both the starship and the fighters... :thumbup:
