  1. [MOC] RSS Korolev

    – Why have I chosen RSS Korolev? Every captain wants such ship. Fast. Huge. Convenient. Never mind, I m just joking. Someone else would say something about a new frontier and a spirit of discovery. As for me, it s just a new experience. You know, if you are captain, it s almost impossible to find anything except cargo ship. Or a liner for the lucky ones. It s not bad, but those routine delivery missions are too identical. Fly somewhere, take cargo, go back, repeat. This research voyage is completely different. Much more responsibility. There are larger cargo ships, but the crew is always low, a couple of dozens at the biggest ones. And all of them are captain s subordinates. Captain is a god on his ship. Here… everything is different. Hundreds of scientists are not just passengers. I have to change course if some astronomer finds some unusual star or if a biologist decides to scan particular planet for life. It s a bit annoying. Some more conservative person could find such situation real headache. But I don t want to return to the freighters. – They can say everything they want, but NavSystems was a general sponsor of this mission. So our aim is establishing new hyperspace routes and correcting old ones. Most expansive and complicated equipment of this ship are all kinds of hyperspace scanners. Laying a new route isn t a simple task. You have to keep in mind many factors to make it fast, reliable, safe, economic. And profitable for company. Days, when ship had to have huge powerful expansive computer onboard to calculate hyperjump, are gone. Companies like NavSystem provide access to their servers to make calculations as simple as it possible. Global hyperspace beacon network collects all necessary data; servers process it and give all parameters of a jump for a fair payment. This entire infrastructure has high running cost, so we can t do it for free. – Those bastards from the “navigators guild” think they are masters here. But most of them don t even understand that their precious hyperroutes are useless if nobody wants to use them. Every journey needs a reason. The most common and obvious one is valuable resource deposit. Humanity needs more resources for further expansion. That s why we should check every possible planet, moon or asteroid belt. Moreover, every planet is unique and can tell scientists something new and may be important. We ve already done several discoveries. But “navigators” always hurry us up if they find star system useless for them. We must do something. – This expedition has already given us good results. We collected tons of information and statistics. It will help for new colonists a lot. Some people hope we can find one more earth-like planet. It will be a great success. However, we checked thousands of planets and none of them is suitable for human without any special equipment. We even found some samples of life, but it were just bacteria and a couple of simplest seaweeds. Space is a dead place. I hope we can change this in future. RSS Korolev by Sunder_59, on Flickr
  2. An estimated 25000 parts, 9kg, 109cm long. (That's 20 pounds, 43 inches). For Lego Space builders there's a tradition: SHIPtember. Each September, any Lego fan can try to build a SHIP. (Also known as a Seriously Huge Investment in Parts). It's typically for spaceships, but I think landships work just fine. Minimum length of 100 studs, preferably to be built in a single month. Khagaan took three. The two smaller vehicles took a month each. Now I've finally finished filming and editing, it's Shiptember again. So in that way, it's perfectly on time :) More pictures:
  3. So, if I turned any of these things into an LDD file, which one would you prefer?
  4. 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.
  5. Episode XVI: Amassing the Fleet

    "Quarrie! You ol' junk dealer, how's my new ship coming a long? You know an all out battle is no place for my Lady Luck." "Youur point is well taken Gold Leader. I'm suure a ship will arrive that matches your specifications; new allies aare arriving everyday with any kind of ship that can carry them. We maay not have the largest fleet and much of these beasts are cobbled together freighters with a suspicious number of armaments, buut the strength of the Rebel Fleet lies in it's heterogeneity and the ability of our Admirals to capitalize on those differences when the battle allows it." "Admiral, break off your current operations and send your Task Force to the Hudalla system and prepare for immanent fleet and ground operations." "Yes, my lord." Categories Category A: Starfighter or Freighter (anything under 100 studs) - The weapons race for a game changing starfighter culminates now above the forest moon of Endor. Build the perfect representation of a canonical starfighter or freighter, or create your own. Category B: Capital SHIPs (at least 100 studs) - Whether it's minifig-scale or a massive micro-scale ship, create a SHIP at least 100 studs long. Again, redefine the standard for a perfect canonical ship or create your own to join the fleet. Bonus: Build a scene for your starfighter or SHIP. This will help your score in Wave 1 and Wave 3. Additional story and exposition about the fighter or SHIP will help judges assess Wave 2. Most importantly, get your characters to Endor. Use this Episode as an opportunity to prepare your character for the ultimate battle on Endor. Whether they're piloting or just catching a ride we all know where everybody needs to end up. Make it happen. Rules All entries must be posted as a new topic in the Nar Eurbrikka subform, the title prefixed by "[SoNE Ep. XVI]" followed by "[Cat. A]" or "[Cat. B]" and your personal title. For example, "[SoNE Ep. XVI] [Cat. A] Grey Squadron Leader." You may build in one or both categories. If you use the same bonus scene for both categories, the extra points will be attributed to your Category A build. Canonical ships may be built, but you should improve on previous renditions. There have been a lot of X-Wings; if you're going to do one, do a damn good job. For any non-canonical ships, your score will weigh heavily on the appropriateness of your design and how it fits in with the rest of the fleet. The Episode will run from August 18 to September 30. As long as it is still September somewhere in the world, you can still post your build. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified from the Episode and will not receive XP. Entries will be judged on a 1-25 point scale, however the judges see fit. Points earned will be attributed to your character at the end of Wave 3. This episode/contest is open to all players of Shadows of Nar Eurbrikka, even if they joined EB or signed up for the game after the episode has begun, with the exception of the Star Wars staff, who are not eligible to win XP or prizes; the EB admins and moderators, who are not eligible to win prizes but may earn XP; and the episode host, who is not eligible to win prizes but may earn XP. All entries must be new creations, not posted anywhere else prior to being entered in the episode. You may be asked by a staff member to change your entry if it is too similar to an earlier creation. All entries must be built from real LEGO or with Lego Digital Designer. No clone brands, no third-party custom parts. Post pictures no larger than 1024x768, as specified in the EB Member Guidelines. You may do a 'full-blown photo edit' with all the text, effects, background compositing, support erasing, and other effects on as many shots as you like. At least one shot must be posted (under a spoiler tag, if desired) with no editing other than color adjustment or background removal for a solid-color background. For obvious reasons, any photo editing that changes the shape, functionality, or color (not tint or adjustment, but actual color) of a LEGO piece is prohibited,. All entries are considered WIPs (Works In Progress) until the deadline passes. Until the deadline has passed, you are allowed to change and improve your MOC. All rules in the Core Rules topic apply unless otherwise stated in this explanation or the rules above. Scoring Scoring will be done in three waves of single loss elimination. Both factions will choose an Admiral to command their fleet (Admirals must be available to choose builds in a timely manner or they will be replaced based on the judges's discretion). Each wave will involve one on one and one on two match ups chosen by the Admirals. Posting of results will depend on the rate of play, so it could be after each SHIP to SHIP or fighter to fighter skirmish or after the entire round; we're not exactly sure how it'll all play out. Scoring (Wave 1) When the submission deadline has passed, the Admiral of the largest fleet will choose a fighter and a SHIP to launch the Wave 1 attack. The smaller fleet Admiral will choose a fighter and a SHIP to counter their respective attackers. Judges will score each individual build (secretly) and the higher scoring builds will advance to Wave 2. The lower scoring build will be eliminated from the remainder of the competition. The smaller fleet Admiral will choose the next fighter and SHIP to attack and the larger fleet Admiral will counter. Judges will score/advance/eliminate builds. This will continue with each Admiral alternating attacks and counter attacks until one side is out of builds. The winning and remaining/unchallenged builds will advance to Wave 2. Scoring (Wave 2) The Admiral with the largest remaining/advanced fleet will choose EITHER a fighter or a SHIP to attack. The Admiral of the smaller fleet will counter with 1-2 builds, likely a capital SHIP and fighter escort. The judges will advance the build they think would win in an actual fight. Therefore, an intricate, perfectly-built transport SHIP, may be destroyed by a smaller, lower scored TIE fighter. Descriptions and stories of the builds will help the judges make their decisions. For example, although Mortesv's Nebulon-B is an absolutely stunning build that should win any competition we put together, but without a fighter escort, it may be destroyed by a crappy little Cutlass-9. Admirals will have to carefully weigh whether their best fighters should be on attack or defense. The Admirals will take turns attacking and countering builds until one side is out of builds. The winning and remaining/unchallenged builds will advance to Round 3. Scoring (Wave 3) Both fleets have suffered heavy attrition and will now face each other in mass. The (secret) scores on each remaining build will be tallied and the highest scoring faction will win the Episode. This is when effective protection of intricate, perfectly-built transport ships will be proven important. In the event of a tie, the judges will judge the entire fleet as a whole without regard for individual points, giving special notice to backstories and collaborations. The best fleet wins. Prizes All players with the winning fleet will receive this tag to commemorate their victory. You can only have one of these tags or one of the Community Build tags at a time, but a log will be kept of all the tags you've earned in your profile in the Player Index. You will receive XP equal to the number of points you are awarded from the judges in each category. The winning fleet may choose any unclaimed planet to add to their faction's territory.
  6. The ISB commander's yacht on Commenor had a partially scrubbed flight log, but I was able to identify approach protocols for an unusual class of ship from the control presets. These protocols insinuated that an aft approach was required for friendly vessels. Because the ISB yacht would not normally be concerned with the particular formalities required by other officers, it seemed likely that this aft approach was a mechanical requirement rather than the whims of the commander. Many smaller ships had similar mechanical requirements because of docking ports, but this yacht had very little wear around their ship-to-ship seals. This would imply a larger ship with a hangar large enough for a full yacht... the Barca-class cruiser. Imperial Barca-class Command Cruiser - Trasimene by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr These cruisers were quite rare; often used as serrated spear against larger capital ships. The cruiser would charge into close quarters with their larger foes, like some of the heavier Mon Cala ships increasingly being used by the Rebellion. Two heavy tractor beams would take hold and a starfighter contingent would be deployed to remove any enemy fighters or armaments from the ship. However, Imperial officers feared commanding such a ship because the quickest way to escape a serrated blade is to break it off. As the Mon Cala engines became more powerful, Barca-class cruisers were being pulled into hyperspace and ripped apart as the Rebels escaped. Imperial Barca-class Command Cruiser - Trasimene by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Cross referencing my other data, 37 of these ships were currently in service and attached to various task forces throughout the galaxy as auxiliary vessels. Nothing prestigious enough to warrant visits by an ISB commander's yacht. A 38th cruiser must still be out there, off the Empire's official books. Imperial Barca-class Command Cruiser - Trasimene by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr I would have to stowaway aboard the ISB capital ship overhead and look closer into their data. XVI - data 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Everything seemed normal. Disposed of a technician while he was preparing for his shift, reported to his post on time and busied myself until I was alone. Upgrades to my arm let me slice quickly into the terminal without exposing my chest scomp link, which would be necessary for such an exposed location, but more dangerous because of the slice wouldn't have all the usual redundant firewalls. Which is exactly what got me... XVI - data 2 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr I couldn't move. Helpless on the floor. Squads of stormtroopers ran by, but none came inside. They were securing the corridors all around me. A commander entered with his escort pilot. XVI - data 3 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Councilman 1 - "ISB Agent Goatm An 46-1, it is my honor to welcome you back home. Your services have been requested and it's time to end this little vacation of yours. "Pilot, secure our guest and extract his data. I want everything from the last 20, no, 50 years catalogued. We'll decide what we want to keep later. "Bridge! Proceed to our rendezvous with the Trasimene, the Endor system." Imperial Barca-class Command Cruiser - Trasimene by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr
  7. Shiptember

    Hi there, It is my plan to build a ship for shiptember. No pics yet, but hopefully I will have something to show off soon.
  8. [MOC] Portal Spaceship

    Portal ships are used to create instant connections with distant regions of the galaxy. Such ship can open a large quasi-stable wormhole and travel to the destination point, where it establishes a stable link with another ship in the point of origin. Since quasi-stable wormholes are dangerous, portal ships are fully automated. The ship is also capable of sublight flight in normal space. Here we can see a smaller ship appearing from subspace: Front view of the ship: Rear side of the ship with 3 groups of sublight engines: Close-up view of the portal: Close-up views of the engine pods: Larger photos can be found on flickr. Thank you for your attention!
  9. Hello everyone. I just finish my February project=D 110 studs minifig scale starfighter with adjustable wings geometry=D And a photo with my fleet from Bricktastic=D
  10. Here is my entry for the SHIPtember 2016 contest. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr This year, I decided to build a Mobquet Medium Transport coming straight from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Those among you who played to the X-Wing Alliance videogame or read the Dark Empire comics book must maybe remember it. Length: 104 studs Width: 34 studs This is my 5th SHIP. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr A small zoom on its "head": Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr And on the back, with the engine exhausts: Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr Please note that the back side is not fully conform to the original pictures. Normally, there should be 2 large engines at the bottom-read side. However, for playability reasons, I have decided not to display them. By removing them, the MOC can strongly land on the bottom repulsors and is much sturdier. My build technic is mainly about cladding panels around a strong technic backbone. I am still working on the inside as I want to make it playable for my son. However, here is a small sneak preview of one of the bays. More pictures later. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr A few features: A handle to easily carry it (and it is not too heavy according to my son) Opening panels on each sides (4 total) and on the top (also 4) in order to easily access the inside. Side panels can be used as access ramps A few visible studs inside the bays in order to attach small vehicles and ships Rear bay transport capacity: 6 speeder bikes (Empire or Clone Wars style) OR 4 speeder bikes & 2 pallets of equipment (small repair area) OR any 6 of the vehicles usually found within battle packs Central bay transport capacity: any of the below lines (all tested successfully) 2 Tank Droids (75015) 1 Mandalorien speeder 1 Jedi fighter (Aethersprite) 2 Geonosian fighters or Canon 2 clone light artillery guns 1 speeder bike with side-car Plenty of crates, or troops or whatever A few pictures from the build : I started by measuring the length, just to have an idea of what I ned to build SHIPtember 2016 Day 1: The beginning of the journey by Veynom, on Flickr Then I try transforming it into a strong backbone (with the handle, it has to be strong) SHIPtember 2016 Day 4: Assembling the backbone by Veynom, on Flickr After the first cargo area, I start the second, while testing the cladding technic. SHIPTEMBER going forward. by Veynom, on Flickr The idea of a double floor for the rear bay is born here .... simultaneously with my fear of not having enough plates to cover the entire surface. Ultimately, it was ok but I have no more black, dark blueish grey or green plates anymore. SHIPTember 2016 Day 27 by Veynom, on Flickr Almost finished .... on one side at least. The second side was still empty and panel-less. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr And a small image from the X-Wing Alliance game so that you may compare. I hope you enjoy it!
  11. [MOC] EFS Asimov

    All right men, we’ve arrived. That strange thing looking like a comet is your new home and place of work for several months. No, that’s not a comet. That’s EFS Asimov, ore processing ship, and this dusty tail is a cloud of waste. We are getting closer and you can see how big this ship is. Do you see those claws and arms at the bottom? Now they are empty, but when Asimov sees some good asteroid full of iron nearby, she can crush and eat it herself. Now swarms of mining drones and transport ships are delivering ore to Asimov’s hangars. Yes, it looks like giant steel hive. See those spinning things? They are ore mills, crushing pieces of rock into dust. Then ore is separated from waste, enriched and prepared in other ways to become high quality steel. Can you see those four melting facilities? They are making steel plates, beams, tubes… all you want. And that is stored in those huge containers. Soon another cargo ship will take a couple of them. Hey, look at the engines. They are massive! If waste goes through their exhaust, it begins to glow. Now engines aren’t working, but you must see it! Let’s look at another side now. Yes, yes. That’s hydroponics. How many mining ships has it? But we have! You can take a rest after a long day in one of these little artificial gardens. We care about our employees. Anyway, we are going to dock, so our improvised excursion is over.

  12. [MOC] Persistence

    "Persistence" - Exodus Fleet Mobile Construction Yard Persistence by o0ger, on Flickr Length: 105 studs Number of parts: not a clue This is where most vessels in the Exodus fleet are constructed and repaired. The mobile refinery supplies the construction yard with refined metal from nearby asteroids. Persistence - Details by o0ger, on Flickr Currently a batch of fighters are loaded up for testing in the main hangar. In the mid ship construction dock a new Attack Frigate is under construction. This is my SHIPtember SHIP for 2016. My goal was to use that big yellow Duplo part, and use some kind of lighting. The ship's interior is somewhat lit up by a EL-wire and the construction dock is lit by lifelites. Persistence - Side by o0ger, on Flickr
  13. [MOC] USAF Daedalus

    My build for SHIPtember, USAF Daedalus from the TV show: Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis. 101 studs long plus the antenna.It contains LEDs that light up the bow, the engines, the fighter bays and the command centre. It weighs 8kg, but I'll do a swoosh pic (or maybe a video) soon. USAF Daedalus by Sam Wright, on Flickr Full album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legosambo/albums/72157673276890781 WIP thread here if anyone is interested: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legosambo/albums/72157673008519285 It will be going on display at the EB Games Expo in Sydney this weekend.
  14. [MOC] Zea'x Dauphyz

    An exploration vessel made by the Tuor'arc, on a peaceful mission to explore space and search for other species, hoping they are not alone in the universe. Zea'x Dauphyz by Cecilie Fritzvold, on Flickr Zea'x Dauphyz by Cecilie Fritzvold, on Flickr Ok, so this is my SHIPtember SHIP this year. This was actually what I planned to build for SHIPtember last year, but ended up not having time to do. For a SHIP it's fairly small, as it's rather thin, but it has the required length. This year I actually had even bigger plans, but again, time ran away from me and I had to scrap my original plan and go back to this idea. I ended up pretty much speed building this over just 2 weekends, so I never took the time to post any WIPs (sorry!). As for my original planned SHIP, I intend to build it anyway, just over a longer period of time.

  16. shiptember MOC: Queen Stephanie

    This is my build for SHIPtember 2016. It was very much a build as I go. I had no formal plans, no drawings, no budget to buy parts. I had some LEGO sails and wanted to do something with them. Yo-ho, the Queen Stephanie is a light sail ship. She quietly sails in the darkness of space in search of booty to plunder and pillage. She is armed with 12 dual turbo laser turrets and a single BLW (Big Laser Weapon). She has a fore skull for ramming. The ramming skull has to be raised before the BLW can be fired. Most of her prizes will surrender without the BLW having to fire a single shot which is a wise course of action. Name: Queen Stephanie Length: 106 studs Queen Stephanie by dr_spock_888, on Flickr Queen Stephanie by dr_spock_888, on Flickr
  17. Built for SHIPtember 2016. Length: 106 Studs Bio: The Firebrand class of cruisers and shuttles have long been used for search and rescue operations in all manner of atmospheres, scientific research and testing, medical transport and general transport of passengers both on planet and for interstellar trips.
  18. [MOC] Kargador ACP60

    The Kargador ACP60 is a cargo freighter that's like a warship with a front and aft section. This cargo freighter has been designed specifically to have the front and aft sections to be detached to accommodate the cargo/payload between them. Upon reaching the designated destination, the cargo/payload can be detached from the two ends of the freighter. The front and aft ends of the SHIP will then attach together and return for more cargo/payload to deliver. One hundred twenty eight studs or forty inches long and probably just between five hundred and one thousand bricks. Like the previous SHIPtember entries, Kargador ACP60 will make its first public appearance at BrickFair New Jersey on the last week of October. Unlike the previous two entries that were deconstructed right after BrickFair NJ for the past two years, this cargo freighter will remain built to go to more shows/events in the future.
  19. Here is my ultimate version of the CR90 Corvette Tantive IV. It had been a while that I wanted to modify the old 10019 Tantive IV in order to improve it seriously. When the 10198 set was released, I jumped on it but was also disappointed by several aspect of the model. So let’s review the pros and cons of each set. 10019 Rebel Blockade Runner (2001 - 1747 pieces): Pro - Its size, it is massive; - Its shape, it is recognizable and elegant Cons - No playability, no space for minifig; - Worst stickers ever (mine peeled); - Some details and construction technics are obsolete today. And about the 10198 Tantive IV (2009 - 1408 pieces): Pro - No sticker  ; - Somewhat detailed interior; - Nice engine pods; Cons - No landing gear or support; - It is small!!! - The cockpit top metabricks are ugly, particularly the white color does not match with the rest; - Accessing some of the play features was complex (un-mount then open); So in the end, what I wanted to build was: - A large massive CR90 of over 100 studs; - It should have a detailed interior, easy to access without un-mounting 300 parts. - No sticker; - A landing gear that is integrated and that can support the weight of the beast. And here is the result, mostly rebuilt from scratch. Name: CR90 Corvette Tantive IV Length: 102 Studs Weight: 4.4 kg Swooshability: yes Number of SHIPs built: 1 Number of pices: 2500 (estimated) And now the pictures: CR90 Corvette Tantive IV by Veynom, on Flickr Its nice head: CR90 Corvette Tantive IV by Veynom, on Flickr So yes she is swooshable ... this picture has not been edited.

  20. [MOC] Loki's Shadow

    I completed this SHIP some days ago for SHIPtember. I hope you like it. Loki's shadow by FonsoSac, en Flickr Loki's Shadow is a ship of the Confederation of Planets Human specializing in electronic warfare. Named after the deceitful norse god Loki. As the god Loki its power is not based on the strength of their arms but on the ability of creating confusion in enemy systems . Most of the interior is full of nano procesadores running AI programs that try to penetrate enemy defenses. In the Sgur system conflict Loki's shadow was crucial to disable all systems of the Admiral Garamon's flagship leaving it at the mercy of the Confederate frigates. The battle was decided with no casualties in 12 minutes.

  21. Here is my entry for the 2015 SHIPtember contest: a deep space ship, the Mantrisse-class Exploration Ship. Length: 121 studs (97 cm) Width: 78 studs(62 cm) Coulours: green, light grey (old & bluish), metal (the 12V rails) This is my 4th SHIP (ship longer than 100 studs) and 2nd one this year. Mantrisse-class Exploration Ship in orbit of new planets by Veynom, on Flickr I started this SHIP quite late in the month, on the 23rd exactly, mainly because until the 21st I was too busy with the preparation of BrickMania Seneffe. Speaking of BMS, I still have several MOCs/MODs to take picture of. Mantrisse-class Long Range Exploration Ship by Veynom, on Flickr Inspiration came with a couple of meta-bricks I received during BrickMania Seneffe and that I finally did not use. :-p The bulk of the Mantrisse body is composed of grey train rails from the 80's, including some of these rails used to conduct electricity. I used the latter to give a different color pattern and texture. In the end, everything got relatively easily built and the ring just fits perfectly. Mantrisse Eploration Ship by Veynom, on Flickr My inspiration sources are based on European graphical novels from Leo and his Aldébaran universe along with his Mantrisse but also Jacobs and his Enigma of the Atlantide. Mantrisse Eploration Ship by Veynom, on Flickr Close-up on the head of the Mantrisse: Mantrisse Head by Veynom, on Flickr I waned and needed to change the general "ship mast" aspect of the Mantrisse. The inclination angle of the 4 antennas makes me now think to a carnivorous flower or some kind of alien head. Mantrisse Head by Veynom, on Flickr The 4 antennas are only attached through a single stud. It is stable when the ship is standing vertically on a table but it will fall down when moved horizontally. The latte minor inconvenient would not exist in space where there is no gravity.

  22. U.S.S Lexington ICVN 16

    Hey all, here's my first Sci-Fi post on EB, the USS Lexington ICVN 16, which also happens to be my SHIPtember entry from this year's contest. USS Lexington ICVN 16 by Joshua, on Flickr USS Lexington ICVN 16 SHIPtember shot by Joshua, on Flickr USS Lexington stern view by Joshua, on Flickr USIN Fleet register: The USS Lexington is the 4th ship in the Legacy Class of Super Battlecarriers, and the 16th interstellar carrier built for the United States Interstellar Navy. Constructed at the Death Valley Heavy Starship Yards by JBIronWorks Inc., the Lexington and her sister ships Enterprise (ICVN 13), Yorktown (ICVN 14), and Saratoga (ICVN 15), are the largest warships ever built by mankind. A solid THREE times the length of the Gerald R. Ford class, the Legacies, as they are commonly called, have the hanger capacity for up to 200 starcraft of various types, up to and including orbital bombers the size of B-2s. Unlike previous classes of carriers, the Legacies do not rely on their starcraft as their sole weapon, making them unique among their peers. Each Legacy is armed with 2 massive forward-firing 30-inch railguns, 4 turret-mounted 24-inch plasma guns, 9 turret-mounted 20-inch plasma guns, 6 tactical nuke missile ports, and multiple smaller plasma guns and CIWS’ scattered around the hull. All Legacies are thus able to hold their own, and be able to stand in a line-of-battle as well, making the Legacies the first successful Battlecarriers ever. Fitted with all the aforementioned weapon systems, as well as the latest and most advanced radar and comms systems in existence, the Legacies are considered the ultimate symbol of American military power, and the pinnacle of starship engineering. Two more Legacies are in the works, Wasp (ICVN 17), and Hornet (ICVN 18), with the possibility of more being discussed by Congress. —————————————————————————————————— Final length: 146 studs long Width: about 50 studs You can't see it here unfortunately, but the main engines, the bridge, and the interior hanger deck all light up. 100% Lego with the exception of those flags, which are standing in for engraved panels that I don't have yet. There is a special reason these ships are called the Legacy class, and why I chose to name this one the Lexington. As is obvious from the description, they are all named after famous American carriers. There is another meaning for why the names Legacy and Lexington are used in this build however. My great-grandfather on my mom's side served on both Lexingtons during WW2, and was the Chief of the Flight Deck on CV-16. Thus, the class of ships being named the Legacy class, as well as this MOC being named the Lexington, is a double tribute to him and the original Lexingtons. The backgrounds are not mine, they're free online wallpapers. Hope you all like it! Cheers, Joshua
  23. Close up shots of the bar: Menu, cash register, and salad: Food, napkins, ketchup, and mustard: Pick up your trays and utensils at the end. Front: Other facts: Length: 150 studs Width: 16 studs Build time: 13 days but, like Kai's, most of it was built during the last three! My entry for SHIPtember 2015 and my second SHIP, but the first that I have built all by myself. Although it was a tad rushed (the last day, anyways :P), I had quite some fun with it! Thanks for viewing, comments and constructive criticism are welcome as always!
  24. Astra Luminaria by Alysa Kirkpatrick, on Flickr Astra Luminaria is the biggest spaceship ever created by man. Built around Sirius B, the star, Astra Luminaria is the next technological advancement for humans to colonize other stars, and utilizing the star's energy to create long term survival in the ever increasing demand for more energy and space. Two rings orbit Astra Luminaria, built for the ever growing demand of space travel and life beyond the colonized ship. The rings allow for people look at the galaxies yet to be explored. Tech Specs: - diameter with other rings: 123 studs - diameter to outer shell: 101 studs - height: 131 studs - weight: 17 lb 11 oz - parts: 20,012 --------- I had a ton of fun building Astra Luminaria, my first SHIP. It is a hollow core SHIP with no technic. Both were something I really wanted to try out. The design is based on 4 nested spheres, which I then modified for better aesthetics. There is a light bulb in the center of it, giving it a really cool effect in the dark, (and makes photos looks a lot better). Let me know what you think Alysa
  25. The Decadence - Class IV Fleet Carrier by rolli The Decadence is a Class IV Fleet Carrier and the home to hundreds of small star fighters, ten MK6 troop carriers and one SX Destroyer. Its unique shape allows for a big turbine on the side that, together with the array of thrusters on the back, provide the propelling power that make The Decadence one of the fastest fleet carriers out there. ----- A ton of saxophones, dark blue and orange and small star fighters and bombers entertained me throughout the last weeks. And yes, this SHIP is "sideways" - I wanted to break with the usual conventions. I had a blast building this and showing it in Skaerbaek last weekend. Hope you like it, let me know what you think!
