Here we are! My very first UCS-style model is finally out, and it's a big one: the mighty Acclamator-class assault ship from Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Made of 5,152 pieces, at 72cm (28,4′′) in length, weighing 3,2kg, it's by far my biggest project to date.

This 100% SNOT build was painstakingly modeled to accurate reference material, from exact profile dimensions to surface detail on top and underneath. The underside was also full of geomertic challenges due to its numerous angles and shapes.

I wanted to include essential functionality like detachable landing gear for landed display, and openable hangar doors with boarding ramps that slide down to reach the ground. The ship also features a removable stand, as well as a hidden handle to make switching display modes easier.

In addition to the "standard" version with Republic markings, I also made a "class-II", all-gray version, which comes with its own instructions and parts list.

The Acclamator is technically one of my oldest projects: the initial version of the design was made right after the Torment in 2021, but I eventually shelved it as I wasn't truly satisfied with it. Since then I had so many requests for this ship that the idea of making a new version progressively grew on me, until I took the plunge in late January 2024.

Starting the new design from scratch, I decided to scale it exactly to Martin Latta's fantastic UCCS (Ultimate Collector Series) Venator, which happens to be in ~1/1000 scale. So I hope my Acclamator will, along with Latta's Venator, form the basis of a bigger 1/1000 scale BrickVault Republic fleet in the future!

► Instructions for the Acclamator are available at BrickVault!

My favorite Clone Wars-era ship!
And you recreated it beautifully :wub: :wub: 

It looks absolutely amazing, I love it.

The fact that you were able to put landing gear on it is extremely impressive, even more so when you look at how smooth everything comes together.

That is stunning.  If I didn't know better I would say that is work by Onecase.  That's about the highest praise I can bestow.

Almost unfair how good this looks.

At this scale, how big would some gunships/tanks be? Too small to build into the ramp?
 

Thank you for the kind words!

They wouldn't be too small to exist in Lego and scale correctly with the Acclamator, but at that size would probably look nothing like Gunships and tanks though :pir-devil:

The LAAT would be about 1,6cm long.
