----------------

 

In the year 2292, the Republic of Legonia christened the first of many Valkyrie-class cruisers. 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.

Thanks. The big problem with building it was getting the rescue can to fit inside and to get the door to shut. I solved problem no.1 by using a 1x2x1 slope instead of a 1x2x1 brick, but then I had the problem of the door not looking airtight. In-universe, the hangars aren't airtight, but are more like storage bays connected to airlocks.

 

Can anyone tell me where that piece inside of the hangar (Rescue can) comes from? I can't seem to find it.
