    [MOC] Desk-Scale Star Wars fleet

    Back when the original Lego midi-scale sets came out, I fell in love with the idea of having models the size where they were small enough to display, but large enough to have detail and be cool. So, I set out first with my all time favorite capital ship in Star Wars, the Venator Cruiser. I roughed out the main idea, and kept tinkering with it ever since. That was 6 or 7 years ago. I was a beginner, so needless to say that it took four years of tinkering, remodeling, overhauling, and learning that got it to where I was satisfied. My thoughts about midi-scale, or desk-scale as I call it, were to focus on capital ships, since it seemed cool to have the largest ships in star wars on my desk. I also had the benefit of there not being very many people that had done capital ships at this scale. As a result, I built my next favorite capital ship, the executor. If you see the other photos, it was a good attempt, but it wasn't the greatest. Luckily, I found @skayenhere on Eurobricks who showed how to make the dimensions correct, though his is much, much larger. One good overhaul and viola!, the current model. (compliments of @skayen) It was around this time that I discovered Bricklink, which expedited the process. A lot. I decided to give it a go with smaller craft, starting first with a ship I came to love, the Ghost from Star Wars: Rebels. This time, design to completion only took a month (working on it off and on). It was also on this one that I tried my hand at custom sticker work as you can see on the cockpit and front turret. Then, I saw Rogue One and had to have a U-Wing. That was a pain in the butt as I designed and bought the parts only to realize that the wings were way too heavy to be supported by only a clip. I redesigned them to be lighter, but I still had to give up the functionality of the wings folding outward. I’ve seen others be able to do it, but I didn’t have the techniques to figure it out without an entire overhaul (which I don’t have the motivation or patience to do). It looked good, and that was enough for me. I left the clip in to make it look like it could though :D. Then, I had to hit the Resurgent battle-cruiser that was introduced in The Force Awakens. There wasn’t much source material at the time (pre Last Jedi) and I'm glad it turned out as well as it did. All the while, I'm getting better and better at designing and building, so it went from four years to completion, to two, to finishing two in a year, to now three in a year. They aren’t the most complex builds you’ll ever see, but that’s part of the style of this collection. Now for the Falcon. I hadn't dared do something so iconic since it'd been moc-ized at every conceivable scale innumerable times. But, I studied and saw one niche scale where it hadn't been given justice in my eyes, and I went for it. Another driving factor is the Ultimate Collector's Series Millennium Falcon that had been released that same fall to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Episode 4. I wasn't going to pay $800 dollars for a set, as cool as it is, and I didn't have anywhere to put it even if I did. Time to crank out the desk-scale experience. Two months later and there it was, my greatest thus far. It weighs two pounds. I managed to finish it before 2017 ended, making it my 40th anniversary celebration piece. Be sure to hit my flickr to see a couple of timelapses of me building this sucker! The latest I’ve done was inspired by @Inthert when he modified his excellent U-Wing into the junker version that appears in Star Wars: Rebels. I thought, “why not? I can so the same thing!” and voila! I’ve since shortened the wings a bit from these pictures so they are more accurate. Here's some pictures of most of the fleet on a wall: Their public debut and my first Lego Con, Brickslopes June 2018: I hope you enjoy. - Jordan Fridal aka simplethinker Every model has one element, idea or technique that I borrowed from someone else. So thanks to Erik Varszegi, V1lain, Tim Goddard, @Inthert, @sparkart, Palleon, @DarthTwoShedsJackson, @skayen, @Brickdoctor, and the LEGO Group! I’ll leave it as a challenge to all of you to look through the photos and figure out which elements came from where.
  3. Hello everybody! This is my version of the 75055 Lego Star Destroyer. SD_1, on Flickr I know there are many fantastic models from the Imperial Star Destroyers in this forum, such as Raskolnikov's ISD Aggressor. Unfortunately I do not have the space (and money) for such a big model. My goal was to make this ship a little bigger and keep the playability of the set. So I enlarge the original version of the size of the Lego Imperial Star Destroyer 6211 from 2006. The construction is similar to the original construction of 75055. You can just put it on the table and open the panel easily. I mainly used parts from the set 75190. Due to the weight I had to stiffen the underbody with long technic bricks and wedge plates. SD_2, on Flickr SD_3, on Flickr SD_4, on Flickr SD_5, on Flickr SD_6, on Flickr My model will also feature an interior. More pics will follow soon. What do you think about that? MAG85
  4. Hi, all, After lurking around the forum for a bit, I decided it was time to post my first MOC. This is a Star Destroyer, made from the parts in 42028 Bulldozer set. Overview: I started this MOC while experimenting with different frames and connections between parts. After some trial and error, I created a triangular frame with the sides bent in. Having just seen The Last Jedi, I was obsessed with all things Star Wars and decided to attempt an ambitious build for my low skill level- a Star Destroyer. Given that I am not the kind of person who likes to mix their sets together, I eventually settled on the 42028 set to create this MOC from- not only because the low parts count would provide a challenge, but also it would be kind of fun to see a yellow... Banana Destroyer? The frame was primarily constructed of beams and perpendicular connectors: (Note that this construction, while fitting together properly, created some stress on the parts- portions of the front push each other a bit owing to the tightness of the frame. But it's the best solution I could find given the space/ parts available. ) After that was complete, I built the engines and the distinctive cabin and attached them: Features: Authentic body shape Posable turbolasers Built entirely from parts in 42028 Bulldozer set Detailed engines and cabin More Pictures: I hope you enjoyed my MOC! Thank you for stopping by, and I appreciate all feedback, comments, and suggestions! Regards, Magical Duck

    MOC: UCS Imperial Star Destroyer

    It has arrived: My UCS Moc of the Devastator. This is my largest and most accurate model to date, started off as a rebuild of my older model which was disproportional and poorly built in some places. The Model confines al the main features including a battery of 8 turbo lasers, 2 hangers with docking arms, underside tractor beam and swappable tractor beam targeting arrays that can change the ship between a Imperial I class destroyer to a Imperial II class destroyer. The model comes on a removable start and has no interior features, apart from storage for extra parts such as plugs to fill in the stand gaps in the hanger and the secondary Tractor beam array. The bridge and superstructure come in 2 removable parts to ease the weight of his heavy model. The two destroyer variants: Glory to the Empire! This is the topic for the build process, to see how it was done: Full album with additional photos here:
  6. Well, i was proud of it at the time, but i feel now that my ISD isn't sufficient enough. Numerous add ons and additions have made the model a bit unstable and the inaccuracies need to be addressed. The main issue however is the disproportional build! The bridge is too large and wide compared to the rest of the body, and it lacks the correct amount of hangers and indents in the panels. This is all a result of me following along the structure of set 6211, which focused on an interior, messing up the proportions. I talk about it in the original post: Now however i start from scratch, and you guys get to follow on and give out suggestions! It starts now with the gathering of extra parts and deconstructing the original destroyer. The plan is to make it bigger, more sturdy and more accurate. Got to gather up all available reference material for this beast... Last photo of it intact. Major sections now removed. I plan to keep the bridge the same, perhaps with some slight corrections. However the rest needs to be broken up and sorted... Now people can see the frame of the build, and the messy interior...
  7. Hey everyone So i am building a Imperial Star Destroyer, which is being documented in another topic, but i have encountered issues with the frame. I am having difficulties with its build, from aligning the panels at an angle that fits well to building a stable frame that doesn't but strain on joints due to forced connections. I have seen many great SD builds on here, and i was looking for advice and techniques to help me get this right. This is my first attempted layout. It looks fairly fine, though as i continued to make structural reinforcements and increase its length, problems arose. Also, this angle seem a bit 'shallow', and probably should be raised slightly more. Here is the frame currently. I need the middle beam, in order to help with the stand that will come out of the destroyer's hanger. There is the issue of the centre beam pushing against the cross supports, creating tension that may damage the pieces. Any help would be great, as this is an important part of the build and i can't progress until i find a stable design. Thanks!
  8. Inspired by Battlefront 2 and the final book in the Aftermath Trilogy, Empire's End, I decided to build a MOC of the ruins of a Star Destroyer - a motif that Jakku is famous for. Instead of just building some wreckage though, I wanted to build an Imperial camp, so I built this Outpost within the ruins, featuring a command station, lots of crates, some barricades and one of the star destroyer's battered computers that are, at the moment, being powered by a gonk droid as a stormtrooper does the boring work of searching through its files.
  9. Hello, all! Here is my UCS Venator Class Star Destroyer, I began this project back in 2016 and it is near completion. Instructions will soon be available, look further into the thread to find examples. Here is the old thread if anyone is interested: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/123296-ucs-wip-moc-venator-class-star-destroyer/ Update: Here is the current model as of today (15/02/18)! Thanks, Ellis :)
  10. The Harrower-class Dreadnought is for me one of the most appealing Star Wars ships. This Star Destroyer type is the capital ship of the Imperial Navy in the game "Star Wars The Old Republic". The LEGO version is based on the cinematic model rather than the in-game version. You can see the ship in the "Return" cinematic trailer ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm4JEZudf0c ) or in this picture ( http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/0/05/HarrowerClassDreadnaught-EGW.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120425024504 ) Final shots Bigger pictures can be found on my Flickr Specifications: Length: 75cm Width: 41cm Scale: 1 : 1067 Weight: 4.3kg Parts used: about 5700 WIP shots After a couple of months designing it’s time to build the ship completely. Normally I would just post final pictures of a MOC, but since Star Destroyer ships are pretty popular I thought I would show WIP shots of how I constructed the Harrower. WIP 1 The first WIP shot shows the main frame of the ship. It was important to make the main frame very strong since the ship is going to be heavy and stands on just 2 feet. Therefore there are horizontally 3 rows of technic bricks which are all connected both horizontally and vertically resulting in a very strong frame. The sections that stick out all have a rotation joint at the end making an angle of 15 degrees which happens to be exactly the angle I needed for the Harrower. Later on I will connect frames for the wings to these joints. These wing frames will also be supported by the technic bricks that stick out below the rotation joints. WIP 2 The second WIP shot shows one of the wing frames (the other one is mirrored). Each wing frame is connected to the rotation joints of the main frame via the joint socket liftarm parts (the white parts). The top left corner picture is a close-up of the frame. The triangular frame has an angle of about 10 degrees which I needed for the Harrower and incidentally match with the angle of the 12 x 3 wedge plate. This is ideal to build the back (the engine section) later on without too much gapping. Another advantage of the triangular frame is that it’s very strong. WIP 3 In the third WIP shot the two wing frames are attached to the main frame. I added a layer of plates to the wing frames to make them sturdier horizontally and to make them a bit thicker. Note that the build is already flipped upside down to proceed to the next stage which is building the bottom and attaching the display feet. WIP 4 With the frame done it becomes a bit more exciting because now I can start building stuff you can actually see when the ship is finished. WIP shot 4 shows the bottom wings of the Harrower which are constructed SNOT. The good thing with the frame is that you could also choose to build a hull in the more traditional way with plates and wedge plates, because the angle of the wing frames match with the angle of the 4 x 2 wedge plate. I chose to build it SNOT, because I like a smooth effect for this scale. As you can see I also used the old light gray parts (also yellowed ones) to give the ship a bit more worn look. WIP 5 The fifth WIP shot shows the bottom with hangar bay which is constructed as one piece. It is attached to clips near the green parts that can be seen in WIP shot 4. The bottom is also held in place by the 2 x 4 tiles all around. It took a lot of time to figure out how to make this section work, because it is here where the two angular wings meet. WIP 6 As you can see in WIP shot 6 the feet are attached and the ship is turned upside up again. Before building the upper wings and the bridge section I added the engines and a couple of side sections. I had to improvise the engine section a little bit since there are no good reference pictures of the back of the cinematic model. All I could see in the trailer of Star Wars The Old Republic were 2 big engines with each 2 smaller ones beside them. The rest of the engine section is inspired on pictures of Star Destroyers. Note that the in-game version of the Harrower has quite different engines: 2 big triangular engines. WIP 7 The seventh and last WIP shot shows the addition of the upper wings and sides at the front. This was relatively easy because technically the upper wings are a copy of the bottom wings. Only the bridge section (which is similar in technique to the bottom) remains to be added before the Harrower is finished.
  11. This is my 13 foot long Executor Star Destroyer! I started this project on June 27th and paused construction on August 20th 2017. The model is supported on an aluminum frame and surrounded by over 2000 technic bricks. This combination represents the frame of the entire project and this is where the thousands and thousands of grey pieces are connected to form the aestethic of the model. This model obviously has two sides, a bottom and a top. I decided during the planning of the model that I would build the bottom half first, flip it over using wires from the ceiling to suspend the model mid air and then I would build the top. The goal is to have this model free floating by about 4 or 5 strong wires. Already the model is 13 feet long, weights 120 pounds and has over 50,000 pieces. When completed, it will be 6 inches, 70,000 pieces and 100 pounds bigger. Please view my flickr albums where you can see a detailed look at how I constructed this beast! https://www.flickr.com/photos/157987175@N04/albums
  12. Hello LEGO® fans, I like to post my latest research test. I started 2014 with Modo and LDRaw and passed my ideas and results to Nicolas 'SCRUBS' Jarraud, the french genius who gave us Mecabricks, and he developed a very nice Blender addon what gives us access to high-end renderings out of the box. A long time I ignored Blender but since last year we switched to this impressive open source application for my animation studio pipeline. Therefore I started to learn Blender and it's worth any minute because this is really a serious competitor for all other commercial 3d applications. Just the fact that Blender is a 108MB ZIP archive and starts in a second makes it very special. It has everything you need for animation and visual effects. I am not a Blender professional yet because I am running my studio as a CEO and actually I started an upcoming professorship at a private university. And I have a family with two kids. So it's a miracle that I am posting here. :-D Rendering Digital LEGO® is my personal project called Renderbricks what brought back all my passion for 3d. I wished the day had 48 hours. Due to my activities with Renderbricks I try to post constantly work starting with Facebook, updating flickr, posting on Twitter and adding to ArtStation to get as much attention and followers as possible. This is a time consuming process what needs a lot of patience and energy to keep the project running. And three years later now I will have a call with The LEGO Group next week because an Innovation Director is interested in my work. I am excited. :-) With Renderbricks I am also in touch with a lot of nice people. Actually a programmer is developing a Modo importer for LDRaw what looks very promising. I am also in chat with GitHub user TobyLobster who developed ImportLdraw for Blender. This addon is really fantastic. And I have a lot of contacts to MOC designer but of course I can't render everything. Researching LEGO® never ends. Here's another stress test with Blender. And I am impressed again about this open source software what beats most commercial competitiors in many aspects. This amazing LEGO® ISD Aggressor model by Matthew 'raskolnikov' Benner has 14.531 parts with instances and 56.489.080 triangles in Blender. The scene size is compressed saved only 91.306 MB. The render size is 15.360 x 8.640 pixel (15K). CPU Render time on a Dual Xeon 12 core is 2h 13min only with the latest Blender build and the Denoiser. This is really insanely fast. The key here is the new Denoiser technology in the latest 2.79 release what helps to keep samples low at 64 in Branched Path mode. The performance of the Blender scene is amazing. Compared to Modo much faster overall. No refresh issues. Real time handling here on my DELL with GTX 780. Fast loading and saving. And here all bricks have real bevels. In Modo they use a rounded edge shader. I guess the plastic material needs a bit more SSS because the Modo results look a bit better actually. I have ordered two GTX 1080Ti Founder's Edition to speed this up :-) Here you can download a wallpaper for your specific screen. Click on the picture and click again too zoom at 100% to enjoy the 15K details.
  13. Hey there. After a long absence of eurobricks (I've managed to loose my PW and wasn't able to reactivate my old account ) I'm using now the chance to showcase my latest two MOCs in this topic as those are somehow related. Probably most of you have already seen a feature of my Shuttle Tydirium on blogs as eurobricksstarwarsforum (amazing article by the way, thanks!) and elsewhere. In my latest works I`m trying to create a key image for each model, therefore I'm often building a whole scene. I think this is an extra challenge and also a nice way to present the model differently. For the Shuttle Tydirium I went with the two scenes below: The goal is to present the model in the best way, so I had to adapt some points in its favor as camera angle, proportions, lighting and so on. All the elements in the shot are created with physical bricks (except the sky/backdrop). But to showcase the model with all its details and features a video is still the best medium. What do you think? Do you like this format or would you prefer an other presentation form such as seen (f.e.) in the LEGO designer videos (a longer more descriptive video with voiceover)? I'm happy for any suggestions and feedback As a left over of the second scene I had the nice midi scaled Star Destroyer sitting around my desk. Credits to Brickdoctor for his LDD hull design. The biggest problem I had with the 40 studs long model: finding a nice scene and way of presentation. I love the breathtaking vistas in Rogue One! This is one of my favorites: A menacing Imperial Star Destroyer hovering over Jedha City. It was easy to include a small sculpture of Jedha City in the stand. Most important: building an unobtrusive connection, which was able to distribute the weight of the main model. This was extensive, it was always tipping over! The final solution are two technical axes connected at the focal point of the lower hull. Best thanks for your interest. Cheers! MB

    [MOC] Imperial Star Destroyer

    I’ve been working on this one for quite some time, on and off since 2008, but I finally managed to finish it right in time, so it would be the first real MOC I present to celebrate the Star Wars 40th Anniversary. My design goal was to build accurate rather than just big, so I chose the official UCS set scale (10030), big enough for all important details to fit in yet compact enough to be manageable and sturdy. It’s even swooshable to a certain extent. But I can’t build bigger than that or else things start to bend and break. The challenge with this design was to bring all the angles and orientations together without compromise; the hull plate orientation is perpendicular to the center-line to align with the tower and the docking bay, while the edge is perpendicular to the slope to make a perfect contour line with the side greebling. The tower’s “ceiling” is tilted to the same angle as the hull slope while the levels details which represent the “floors” are perfectly horizontal as they should be. The hull is also built around a tough chassis balanced only on one pillar to expose all bottom hull details for photography; the pillar fits in an opening right at the core of the chassis without the need for pins so it could be installed or uninstalled easily. Hull parts are fixed by Technic links for the bottom part and magnets for the top so it can be easily removed like a modular build. I wanted to work more on the presentation but I had to upload the MOC as soon as possible to catch up with the celebration… I’ve got many more MOCs coming up, and not enough time to do everything perfectly, so I hope this simple presentation is good enough for now. I hope you guys enjoy this one.

  15. Hello AFOL's, i want to show you my new Moc of the Imperial Gladiator Class Star Destroyer. It has Parts: 2932 Lenght: 35,2cm Width: 22,4cm Height: 10,4cm Building Time: 4 Days I would be happy for feedback.
  16. Hello Eurobricks! This is my first post, so i figured the best way to start is to display my Imperial Star Destroyer. I based it off set 6211, basically making it more detailed, and building a second top panel to place on the bottom to get the movie accurate shape. I view its as a sort of UCS set for those who can't afford the actual UCS Star Destroyer. There is not interior features, due to the demanding structure of the ship. I tried to get the engine to be mostly movie accurate: Enjoy!
  17. Hi guys, I thought I would quickly post this mod on a MOC I made. Earlier I had built the end scene from Revenge of the Sith with Vader, The Emperor and Moff Tarkin looking at the death star being built. I was in the process of dismantling it for parts when I suddenly realised that the exact same shot was used in The Force Awakens as well. So before taking it apart I did a quick modification on it to turn it into Kylo Ren watching the Star Killer base fire its super laser. DSC_2497 by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr A simple mod really turning the black space and death star backdrop into a red sky with a laser beam. The control panel had a few more lights added as well as some red tiles to mimic the red flare hitting the underneath of the window. Revenge of the Sith - Construction Begins by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr Kylo Ren - Star Killer by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr And here is the comparison shots between the two scenes from the films to highlight the similarities... Revenge of the Sith - Construction Begins by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr star-wars-kylo-ren-watches-starkiller-base-firing by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr Finally here is the comparison between my MOC and the scene from The Force Awakens. 2016-11-21_02-43-26 by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr Hope you enjoy! As always I would love to hear your comments, feedback and suggestions.

    (LDD MOD) UCS Star Destroyer

    Ok so im in the process of bricklinking the 10030 Star Destroyer but wanted to show the mods im planning on doing. As awesome as the original is i was always a bit disappointed in some of the details and greebling, anyway, enough talking and on to the pics. Hopefully the touch ups are noticeable but not enough to be in your face, all the greebling was redone, front of bridge reshaped, entire engine area redone and a few things changed and added. **LDD file in post #20**
  19. Hi guys, so I have finished another micro moc landscape. This time its of one of my favourite scenes from The Force Awakens. The crashed Star Destroyer is such an iconic image from not only the film but the trailers as well that I just had to make it in lego form. I am really pleased with Rey's speeder. I didnt think I would be able to build it at this scale but actually I think this is a pretty good representation. At only eight pieces I dont think its going to get any smaller either! (I did have one version with one less stud at the back but it looked too blocky) The star destroyer is a slight variation on a polybag release with a few tweaks. I was going to design my own from scratch but actually once I built this I felt the look, size and dimensions were pretty much there and just needed a few extra bits added. Overall I am really pleased with this build but as always I would love to hear your feedback and advice.
  20. Hello, while waiting for hoth i build the ISD last month. This is a really massive build considering the retail price of 299$ in 2002. Huge value for the money. time to share some pictures. Colour - light gray and dark gray, also invisible parts have the correct color based on peeron inventory. Panel mounting - Magnets. There are some ridiculous part prices for the magnet mounts 30159, i should get the 3D printed substitutions in the next weeks. A Friend of mine is currently drawing them, for the meanwhile i used other mounting parts. part 2 is following

    Bricklinking More UCS Sets?

    Hello all! I have been recently thinking about Bricklinking some of the rarer/more expensive UCS sets but before I take the plunge I am looking for some advice. Looking at Lobot's 10179 MF and 10143 DSII have been helpful but I am circling back to the idea of other sets. Here's the list of them: 10175 Tie Advanced 10143 Death Star 10212 Imperial Shuttle 10179 Millenium Falcon 10221 Super Star Destroyer I am looking for some advice on which one to build/best to buy. I do know I can buy a SSD but £350 is A LOT and am looking to save on money. I also know that parts on the MF are getting rarer especially those grey boat rigging so now might be a better time to buy before the prices are crazy! Any advice, pros, cons? Thanks, -824

    [LDD] [MOC] The Eclipse

    A small model I whipped up in LDD in the timespace of about 25 minutes. Based on the Eclipse Dreadnought used by the Empire around six years after the Battle of Endor. Comments? Suggestions?
  23. Allegiance-class Heavy Star Destroyer from the EU Dark Empire comics. Kind of like a star destroyer on steroids... the Allegiance-class is basically a bigger, badder version of the Imperial-class ships seen in the original trilogy. It has no hangers but makes up for it with an ton of firepower. A star destroyer custom built for large ship-to-ship combat. It has no deployable ground forces, support ships, or tie fighter compliments... just a lot of guns. allegiance by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr Allegiance 1.1 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr Allegiance 4 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr Allegiance 2 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr Allegiance 3 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr Allegiance 7 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr the_allegiance_destroyer_by_gutworm-d5tgvnu by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr Allegiance 5 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr Allegiance 6 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr Allegiance 8 by outworlderohlendorf21, on Flickr
  24. Hello Eurobricks!! I'm new to the forum and this is my first Star Wars MOC. Me and my fiancé have rekindled our lego passion over the past year and after amassing our collection of sets from TLG, we have begun the MOC frenzy now to satisfy our creative side. As I've immersed myself deeper into the SW universe, I recently listened to The Thrawn Trilogy audiobooks, and I must say they are PHENOMENAL and Marc Thompson is an extraordinary narrator. His portrayal of Grand Admiral Thrawn really won me over and now is my favorite villain, although he is now 'Legends' and not official canon. First, I picked up a stunning Thrawn custom Minifig from Christo, and after that I knew I needed an awesome display scene for him. I built this MOC completely from imagination aside from the nostalgic star destroyer bridge viewport. Below I have included an excerpt from the book to give reference to the design: "...The Grand Admiral's new command room was two levels below the bridge, in a space that had once housed the former commander's luxury entertainment suite. When Pellaeon had found Thrawn, or rather when the Grand Admiral had found him, one of his first acts was to take over the suite and convert it into what was essentially a secondary bridge. A secondary bridge, meditation room, and perhaps more..." "It opened at his approach, and he stepped through...into a softly lit art museum. He stopped short just inside the room and looked around in astonishment. The walls were covered with flat paintings and planics, a few of them human-looking but most of distinctly alien origin. Various sculptures were scattered around, some freestanding, others on pedestals. In the center of the room was a double circle of repeater displays, the outer ring slightly larger than the inner ring. Both sets of displays, at least from what little Pellaeon could see, also seemed to be devoted to pictures of artwork. And in the center of the double circle, seated in a duplicate of the Admiral's Chair on the bridge, was Grand Admiral Thrawn. He sat motionlessly, his shimmery blue-black hair glinting in the dim light, his pale blue skin looking cool and subdued and very alien on his otherwise human frame. His eyes were nearly closed as he leaned back against the headrest, only a glint of red showing between the lids." "'Come here captain, lets take a look, shall we?' He touched a switch; and abruptly the art show was gone. Instead, the room had become a miniature bridge monitor, with helm, engine, and weapons readouts on the display circle. The open space had become a holographic tactical display; in one corner a flashing sphere indicated the invaders. The wall display nearest to it gave an ETA estimate of twelve minutes."

I used the Avengers tower type of displays - I was actually completed with this MOC with larger 1x4x3 panels, until I saw that design and liked it much better, and those translucent blue pieces are quite rare, and gave it a more holographic look. I will probably use the stickers from the Avengers set for the inner ring just with the buttons and keypad, but am debating on some kind of custom stickers or decals for the display ring, something with maybe a tiny star destroyer readout, or something that will go better according to the text. Additionally, I am torn with how the art museum display looks. While it says there are sculptures scattered around the room and on pedestals, I get the feeling from other excerpts in the book that the art is all holographically displayed as well. That being said, I searched Bricklink for any stickers/details pertaining to art. I am happy with the mix of alien/human art on the walls, but I think I would rather make custom artwork decals and duplicate the holo-display from the tactical command displays, so both interchangeable bases are identical in form, but different content on the translucent pieces themselves. Also I may go with some type of translucent custom minifigs and microfigs if possible, to replace the grey and dark grey sculptures in the middle. I definitely prefer the tactical bridge monitor scene more, considering Thrawn was a tactical genius, although the art section still needs something more to pop, and Thrawn's study of cultures and species' artwork is what gave him the insight on their strategies, enabling him to have the upper hand and be a few steps ahead. I added some more pics below, including the greebling technique on the outer viewport side of the display, making it look more star destroyer-esque. Need to add some greebling above the windows, and I also need to Bricklink another few trans-blue panels to complete the display rings. So it's 98% done, but I still consider it WIP for now. Once it is complete I plan on taking much better pictures to really do it justice. Lemme know what you think!!

    [MOC] Terminus-class Frigate

    The Terminus-class Destroyer was a medium frigate used by the Galactic Empire during the Great War. It was used to support Harrower-class Dreadnoughts in large engagements or operate as a ship of the line in smaller skirmishes. The main bridge and shield generators. The engines as well as a pretty space background (yes, the starboard turbolasers are floating ) Unlike many other imperial ships of its time, the Terminus was designed mainly with speed in mind for flanking maneuvers, however it is still much better armed than any comparable republic ship (remind me again how on earth the empire lost?) The front mounted turbolasers (I call 'em muzzle-mounted whiskers ) A better shot of the wing-mounted turbolasers. The secondary bridge. Woosh! That's it! This is probably one of my favorite MOC's ever .
