[MOC] NX-Police Cruiser

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

hi all, this is another Naboo ship. The NX Police Cruiser, an atmospheric starship that looks similar to the N1-Starfighter. it appears in the N64 game "Star Wars Episode I: Battle For Naboo"

My initial inspiration/approach was from the awesome work of Inthert (https://www.flickr.com/photos/143232344@N06/), and I've mantained a couple of details of the original model. I've recreated all the internal structure and the external shape to obtain my personal model, keeping in mind to build a sturdy set that can be displayed (the instructions contain a simple and effective stand solution) but also can be played.
The final model can fit inside a minifigure with the helmet (minifigure is not included into the part lists, you can choose your favourite one by catalog).

more pics (i'll add some others) on my Flickr:

and instructions avaiable on Rebrickable:

i hope you like it (i really like any suggestions and criticisms)

Why is the back section so bulbous, it doesn't look like an N1, is it for a prisoner?

It's an extra engine.

because it is a different ship... not a "N1", but a "NX", a similar ship used as "police patrol" and as "training ship" for the future N1-pilots...
that bulbous section is an engine, in the other pics on my flickr you can see a rear view of the ship
