I've been a fan of the Imperial Assault Carrier since it first appeared in 'Rebels,' so I was very excited to receive a copy of 75106 as a prize for the EB Anthology Contest (Thanks again TLG!). I wanted to MOD the front windscreen to look more 'in-scale,' but once I started changing things I ended up rebuilding most of the ship (hence the MOC/MOD in the title). I don't care about 'play features,' so I rebuilt the TIE launch tubes to be more screen accurate. I also rebuilt the top so that it's no longer removable. I used some old-style hinge plates to mirror the engines on the bottom of the wings. You can view a few more pics, as well as some of the pics I used as reference, on my flickr. You can also see the Gozanti in action in my Shadows of Nar Eurbrikka freebuild. Thanks for viewing! C & C always welcomed.
Midlife-crisis posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsThe IGV-55 is a intel modification of the gozanti class. Pictures are rare on this one, i found different Versions of the ship. The wings are too thick right now - 3 plates high should be mor than enough. Need to make a different greebling. Overall the ship has plenty of different angles. Not sure how far i go with the angles, because of the stability. Partcount is 469 right now.
And here is my latest MOC, a Gozanti-class cruiser modified for deep-space exploration of the fringes of the known Galaxy. (/U version) Gozanti in space by Veynom, on Flickr First, a quick introduction to this Gozanti spaceship. It appear briefly in the prequels and can be more extensively seen inside the Star Wars Rebels anime series. I've chosen to built the latest from SW Rebels. The most visible difference is around the wings and the reactors but also regarding the color scheme based on 2 shades of greys. However, and let's be blunt, whatever the subversion, this ship is plain ugly and by far not the most elegant from the Star Wars universe, except maybe for those (a bit like me) who consider that because it is ugly then it must be an attractive ship. TLC has already released a set about this hip under reference 75106: But, without any second thought, we may agree that this is not their best rendering of a Star Wars ship. In short, it is just ugly and the only few sections where it could have been sleek have been slaughtered by an horrible greebling. Thereofre and because it was so ugly, I decided to make a nicer less ugly version of it. The main idea was to make a model more or less 3 to 4 times bigger and thus multiplying all dimensions of the 75106 by a factor of around 1.5. The final result is this model: Gozanti/U-class Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr A small ship of 109 studs long (89 studs with the probe). As I built it during the month of September, I decided to add a forward probe in order to reach the mythical lgenth of 100 stuffs and participate to the SHIPtember contest. It results in a version which is a bit less canon but still probable within the Star Wars expanded universe. The resulting asymmetric forward body helps in breaking the otherwise monotonous aspect of the Gozanti without crippling the ship with excessive greebling. I could have also easily added the 11 missing studs to reach the 100-stud's length but as I worked without any detailed schematics (and online pictures are often contradicting each others). And in the end, basta, you will see many Lego Gozanti without a probe but mine is unique. Gozanti nose by Veynom, on Flickr I have integrated the playability features from the original set, except the shooters and springloaders that I despise in an very imperial way. Gozanti - Zoom on the central engine section by Veynom, on Flickr When you turn the black section of the central engine, both turrets will rotate. Absolutely useless but quite fun during a fair. The TIEs can be launched exactly like in the original set. I should make larger TIEs as well. There are 7 opening panels of all kinds: cockpit, forward port side, lateral sides (port & starboard), forward roof, main body and Ackbar hatch. A friend of mine felt quite inspired by my model and created several renderings. All of these are pure digital rendering and my original MOC is indeed grey. Those pictures are just for the sake of having fun. Gozanti bringing some UCS Millennium Falcon to replenish the stocks by Veynom, on Flickr Gozanti-class Cruiser - Clone Wars by Veynom, on Flickr Ferrari Gozanti by Veynom, on Flickr Gozanti-class Tanker Octan by Veynom, on Flickr Gozanti Tanker refuelling a Mobquet by Veynom, on Flickr A small picture of the Pax Imperialis (Imperial peace) guaranteed by a Gozanti orbiting quietly over Lothall. Gozanti over Lothal by Veynom, on Flickr And a few pictures of the built process. 15th of September: I started with the wings. WIP - Gozanti Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr 18th of September: The backbone to link the wings WIP - Gozanti Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr 23th of September: The cockpit is ready, the body was progressing step by step and the central engine was being place to its right place. WIP - Gozanti Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr 28th of September: Currently my only picture showing some of the opening panels. Gozanti WIP - Opening panels by Veynom, on Flickr 29th of September: the Gozanti is completed (Just in time) Gozanti-class Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr Done, it has been exposed to BrickMania Seneffe (Belgium) already and will also be present during BrickLive Brussels (Belgium) in a couple of weeks.
