    [MOC] Dreadnaught Class Heavy Cruiser

    Your designs are like a fine wine. Takes time, but well worth the wait. I still remember when you first posted your Venator as an IDEAS submission. Yes, it's been a long time since then, but I'd rather a quality design than something that was rushed... which, admittedly, mine tend to be the latter.

    Fraud MOC sellers.

    @onecase is this building kit on Amazon legitimate? https://www.amazon.com/Vonado-Destroyer-Onecase-Building-Birthday/dp/B07XSDQ51K/ref=sr_1_17_sspa?keywords=lego+star+wars&qid=1569879632&sr=8-17-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyODM4UVJHM00zOExZJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwODI0NDM2MjFBTEdFSllQSEFDTyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNjc2NTMyMjkxNUo4SUxIVUpJNyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX210ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

    [MOC] Dreadnaught Class Heavy Cruiser

    @DrMuttonchops Thanks. The piece count is around 300. The stud.io model and the brick version have some small variations internally for the sake of added rigidity, so I'm not 100% sure of the final number. As for the blisters, I saw a handful of Dreadnaught versions that either used 2x2 round tiles or 2x2 dishes. I didn't like the flatness of the tile method and I didn't like the random stud on the dish version. Luckily, combining part 15535 and 2654 (below) saved the day! The Venator is Kristof's design, and it was the inspiration for all my mini/midi ships. They're all at ~1:2600 scale. @Darnok Honestly, I don't blame you. Frankly, the Dreadnaught is a pretty uninspiring design. It doesn't have the elegance of the Venator or Arquitens, nor the uniqueness of something like the Nebulon B. It's also not a very well known ship. But I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Upon reading about it in the Thrawn Trilogy, something about it got me hooked and I was compelled to create my own version. Regardless, it's not going to win any beauty pageants!

    Finally got around to making this. All in all, I'm happy with the aesthetic. It's also much more robust than I expected. The 16x hinge bricks used for the side panels and weapon blisters have enough friction such that you can easily hold the ship by the center fuselage.

    I think the debate was either "too long" or "too thick". I guess it's a matter of preference, but at this scale, it's a tough decision. Excellent little model as always, @YodaSkate!

    Thanks! Unfortunately, I ran out of vespene gas. ;)

    695 pieces currently. A cursory look at BrickLink showed $170 before shipping and handling.

    In LDD or Stud.io it's two button clicks. In real life, the ingots will be a problem. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=99563#T=C&C=77 They don't come in a lot of colors, but I suppose those could be easily swapped out with 1x2 tiles.

    Will you be willing to share the 3D files when you're done? Alternatively, will you be selling instructions?

    UCS TIE Silencer

    Love the way you designed the red cockpit!!! Much more elegant than TLG's approach.

    [WIP] Sith Star Destroyer

    @Arkeeos you could use the claw piece that OneCase used on his design for the turrets. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=88811#T=C
  13. Mine is 1:2600. Looks like @obijon's is about the same size, somewhere around 14 studs in length. The ISD would need to be roughly 75 studs or 2 feet in length to be at the same scale.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    100% agree. However, those "pro teams" come at a heftier price typically. Pros and cons to all. After some extensive modding, I'm sure 75252 could look even more impressive that it is now.
