This warship was my holiday project... since I was separated from my normal assortment of fantasy parts, I opted to build something that I don't normally build: a spaceship.
 
I had tremendous fun overcoming certain challenges while building this huge thing. I worked, by necessity, almost entirely with pre-2014 bricks. Building in a color scheme of scarce colors forced me to get more creative on many instances. I'm pretty satisfied with the end result, here, considering my limitations.

Here are some things you probably can't tell from these pictures alone:
--The cargo bay doors slide simultaneously open on both sides when you turn the click-jointed axle stopper above them.
--A panel attached to the observation dome can be removed to showcase the command deck inside.
--The hangar bay doors open on both sides, and the "Orestes" small fighters can be stashed in there.
--The plasma turrets rotate (okay, maybe you could tell on that one).
 
Thanks for looking! I appreciate your feedback.

SPACESHIP.

 

Really digging your use of color here, set against the gray things just pop. There's a part of me that wants the bridge to have a viewscreen of sorts, but, I suppose this one primarily runs on sensors. I like your 'action features' so to speak, any plans on putting up pics of those?

Nice job! It's so well-made I have a hard time believing you don't normally build spaceships. It looks like something an experienced space MOCist would make. Keep building.

I very much like the choice of colours and the boxish shape of this spaceship. It's a real treat to behold. Great build

It is a sweet build; did you have any sort of inspiration, or was it more based on what you had available?

That sure is one unique spaceship design. I can't even place it in a specific era of sci-fi, as it has a bit of the greebly retro aesthetic, but it also blends modern elements, without the two clashing. The functionality is also great, and the color scheme is fantastic. Awesome!

Nuju, I think your system builds may just be better than your constraction MoCs.  I beg of you, save some awesome for the rest of us.  xP

I'd actually have something of substance to say here, but I'm too lazy to think of anything.  >_< Er, have some BZPRPG profiles, I guess?

 

I used to help Dominus Temporis with writing MLWTB back in the day, even if I was really terrible at it.  If anyone's in contact with him, could ya help me get in touch?   :)
