http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/IcarusBen/Legonia/Christmasbrick/christmasbrickfront.png http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/IcarusBen/Legonia/Christmasbrick/christmasbrickback.png Yeah... not really a story for this one. Took some of the concepts I learned with the Goliath-A cargo ship and made another flying brick. Lotta SNOT (basically a custom 2x1x2 SNOT brick with a 2x2 surface on one side) as well as a sorta-kinda hangar bay in the back. There's some engine pods on the sides and to round things off, some nice detailing on the front. I also made it my mission to avoid showing any studs. If only there was a 1x2 inverted plate. That'd be nice. I dubbed it "the Christmas Brick" because it looks like a very Christmas-y kind of ship and it's rather brick shaped. They don't look too great, but brick-shaped ships are a lot of fun to build.

Large, fast and strong, the boxy design of the Valkyrie would soon become the Legonian standard for ship design. Featuring a powerful FTL engine, two hangar bays, a large cargo hold and various defensive items, the Valkyrie-class is widely considered to be the best ship in the Republican fleet. ---------------- So, the Valkyrie. This bad boy is roughly 635-650 pieces large (accounting for misclicks resulting in pieces going inside of the ship's skeleton, the Valkyrie was just a little bit of an experiment in greebling, SNOT techniques, better design and, of course, making something incredibly large. The ship's body (not accounting for that large antenna at the front) is roughly 48 modules long and (not accounting for the control tower) about 5-7 modules tall, give or take. The whole thing has only three (exterior) colors; dark red, phosperant white and black, though a little bit of bright red might still be located on the inside. I decided to not bother with covering up the top studs, since it might make the body look a little too disproportionate for my taste. I don't know, that slope really does make a difference.
